Are you hosting a family gathering during the upcoming holiday season? Perhaps, you don’t have enough space in your home for all of your visiting, out-of-town family members to stay. If you can relate to this scenario, consider renting hotel rooms for some of your loved ones to stay in during the holidays. Before booking rooms, talk with your family members in order to assess their needs. For example, you might need to rent a room containing two queen beds and a baby bed for a young family. Or, you may need to secure a handicap accessible room for an older relative. Booking a hotel that offers a complimentary continental breakfast is a good idea. On this blog, I hope you will discover the benefits of renting hotel rooms for visiting family members this holiday season. Enjoy!
When you think about using hotel conference rooms for an upcoming gathering of your business, you might simply imagine having everyone visit the conference room in the morning, spend all day there having a meeting, and then return home. While doing so is certainly one way to use the business facilities at a local hotel, there are other options that you can consider. If the hotel you're planning to book has multiple conference rooms, you can sit down with the event coordinator to share your wishes for how they can be set up to accommodate your needs and the nature of the gathering. Here are some different ways to approach multiple rooms:
Have A Main Room
It's a good idea to have one main room for the gathering. The size of this room will depend on the size of your group, and you can have the hotel staff set it up to suit your needs. You can then use this room for the event's opening remarks, lectures, A/V presentations, and closing remarks. It can be a valuable location for having everyone involved in the gathering to be together for as much of the day as is needed.
Use Several Smaller Rooms
In many cases, business-related gatherings will involve formal presentations and informal sessions in which the participants are divided into small groups. For example, if a speaker explains a new approach to business, the group may then break off into groups of five or six members to come up with a creative way to implement this approach. With one room, you can have round tables for this part, but the room can get noisy and boisterous. It can be nice to use a series of smaller rooms in the hotel to accommodate these groups. This is especially the case if they'll be working on their ideas for a significant portion of the day.
Include A Dining Room
At some business events, participants will eat lunch in the seats that they've occupied for the entire day's proceedings. While this strategy can work, it's also useful to use a separate conference room that can be set up for dining. This way, it gives the participants a chance to get up, enjoy a change of scenery, and perhaps sit with different people over the lunch hour. Also, when the hotel staff is setting up the food and taking it away, the group will be in the main room and thus won't get distracted.Share
