Family Reunion Hotel Arrangements
Making arrangements for your family reunion hotel does not need to be complicated The first thing you must think about is reserving rooms at a local hotel for your out-of-town guests if your reunion is local.
The worst thing that could happen is when your guests try to call around for a hotel room a few months before your family reunion, to only find out that all the rooms in town are $500 per room per night or even worse all rooms in town have all been taken by a large convention or sporting event.
This is why it is very important to reserve a block of rooms for your guests at special rates at one or two select hotels with plenty of time before the big event.
At most hotels the minimum number of guests rooms required to make a block is 10 rooms per night. If you are looking for over 30 rooms per night, another good idea is to split the group blocks among two to three hotels. This way your guests can have a choice between different locations and prices.
You want to get your family member’s interest in the family reunion and generate excitement among them. Advance preparation is the key. Start by selecting the perfect location for your family vacation.
You want to find a Family Reunion hotel that is central so that every member of your family has an easy time getting there.
You also want to make sure the location has enough attractions and things to do for all ages so that every member of the family, young and old, is excited about the trip.
To accomplish this goal you do not want to start blindly calling hotels in multiple locations. You will not be doing your family or yourself any favors by reserving blocks at the first rates the hotel will quote. You also do not have all the information on the hotel, and it is important you get organized detailed descriptions of all amenities before you make any decisions.
The first step is to see what rates are out there on the Internet. You could start looking for individual hotels which have family reunion packages such as the MD Resort in Texas. MD Resort offers many options for small family reunions to large family reunion rentals and several sites to choose from.
