For many, family reunions take place during the summer time. Have you ever thought about why? Most children are out of school on summer break, the weather is usually just right, and many people are able to take off some time for vacation. But planning a family reunion isn’t always an easy task. Aside from picking a date and destination that works for everyone, you also have to find a hotel suitable for the entire family. After all, you’ll probably be spending a lot of your time at the hotel and you want to make sure the whole gang is accommodated. So, here’s how to know you’re choosing the perfect hotel for your family reunion.
Activities for the whole clan on site – When the entire family gets together, having a good time is on the agenda! When there’s a variety of activities, people can be entertained without leaving the hotel. Is there a pool? A place for the kiddos to play games? A bar for the sports fans to catch the game?
Different room options to accommodate everyone – A family reunion usually means family members are traveling from near and far to attend, so it’s important to accommodate everyone as best you can. A simple way to make sure everyone is comfortable at the hotel is by choosing a hotel that has different room options. When there are multiple room options, folks can pick according to what’s best for the people staying in their room. Groups with younger children may prefer a garden view room by the pool, while couples without children may prefer a tower room, which are typically a little quieter, but a bit further from the amenities.
Places to dine on the property – Family reunions usually consist of large groups and it can be tricky to find good places to eat that can hold big parties. Not to mention, getting everyone at a restaurant they all agree on at a specific time can be a hassle. Finding a hotel that has restaurants on the property means no one will have to travel to get there, they can usually take care of a big clan and there are options to choose from.
Space to host a family dinner – Many family reunions save a day for the main reunion event such as a dinner or picnic, so it’s helpful to book a hotel that offers a sizeable meeting space. It’s a bonus if the hotel offers catering services so no one has to cook!
