There’s a reason why hotels are still a popular choice when it comes to booking an event. Be it a conference, team away day, dinner with friends or a wedding reception, hotels really do seem to have it all. With the range of styles that are on offer, there are no two hotels that are the same. Still not sure if a hotel is right for the event that you’re planning? We have 10 reasons that mean you should still keep them as a potential on your list of venues.
Hotel staff are nothing if not constant professionals. While you can hire out a venue for the day, having a team of staff on hand to help you with whatever you need guarantees that the day will go much more smoothly. Their reputation is on the line. They know that a bad review from a company or a wedding quest can see their sales slump, and they’re not about to take that chance.
By using one of the many hotels for hire in London, you are sure that all of your guests are going to be able to access the venue easily. The majority of hotels have good transport links and large car parking facilities for you to use, which everyone involved in your event is sure to be pleased about. Many hotels also have very good disability access with lifts available to all floors.
Wondering who you’re going to get in to look after your catering? By having your event in a hotel, all of this can be sorted for you. You can discuss with the chef what you want to have on the menu, what time you want the food to arrive at, and any dietary requirements. All this safe in the knowledge that everything is being cooked close to were you are sitting. Your food will arrive hot and freshly cooked and you won’t have to search all around London for the perfect chef for your needs. It will all be organised as part of your package.
Hotel staff are experienced in handling all different types of events. They’ve done it all before and so will be well coordinated when it comes to managing yours as well. They’ll be able to offer suggestions as to how to best run it, smooth out any issues that have been causing you difficulty, and in general provide you with a well organised experience. You’ll have very little of the actual planning to do yourself, as the staff will be able to handle everything for you.
One of the great things about hotels is that while they can host your event during the day, they also have rooms for everyone to stay in that night. This is not only good for a wedding reception, but a host of other events as well. Many conferences and away days need to be held away from the office for a number of reasons, and giving people the chance to have a night away is a great opportunity for them to network with others in their sector. Being able to have your event and stay in the one place only adds to this.
A hotel is a perfect venue if you require flexibility with your booking. If you’re unsure how many guests will want to stay you can create a room block, and you can let them know when you are still finalising the dates. Most hotels are happy to accommodate and will be flexible if there are any last-minute plans that means you need to change the date or time your event is happening on. Need somewhere last minute for a conference? A hotel is probably the best venue to look for in this case.
As hotels are used to hosting events in their conference and reception rooms, they are also used to setting up any of the tech required for use. From microphones to private WIFI access, projectors and extra lighting, a hotel will be able to accommodate any of your requests in this area. This gives you one less thing to worry about, and the staff will ensure that they have everything set up and ready for you when you arrive. They’ll even test the equipment so it suits your specific needs.
Hotels are generally much more flexible on their prices than other venues, particularly if you are also staying overnight with your group. This makes them the cheaper option to go for as it will also include any catering that you might need throughout the event. This budget friendly option is sure to make everyone involved a lot happier, particularly when there are so many staff ready to help you.
No two hotels are the same, so if you are looking for a room that is a little bit more upmarket and has its own sense of character and charm, you’re sure to find a hotel for hire in London that suits your needs. If you want a wedding reception with a certain look and feel to it, you can look into boutique hotels to provide you with the perfect experience.
Hosting your conference in a hotel is a great teambuilding exercise. After the event, your group can enjoy a meal together and maybe even a night out locally before staying in the hotel. Instead of everyone going their separate ways at the end of the day, your team has the opportunity to spend some quality time together.
A hotel isn’t always everyone’s first choice when in comes to hiring out a space for an event, but they come with a wide range of benefits that you won’t be able to get anywhere else. They can create an event that is completely tailored for your needs and take over a lot of the planning that comes with hiring a venue without the same number of staff to hand. Next time you’re in need of a venue, why not try a hotel?
