04 Oct A Hotel is Great for Family Reunions
First Class is honored to be part of many family reunions. We love being the wheels behind the fun. In this post, we will address why a hotel is great for family reunions.
What are your favorite family vacation memories? For some, it may be going out in the early morning, skiing, and boarding in those first few hours of light with your dad and uncle when the lake was glass. For others, it may be card playing, smoking meat, adventure parks, canyoneering, or going to see a play on Broadway. Whatever your specific memories are, coming together is a great time to reconnect and have fun. But, here’s the deal. Just because you love being together doesn’t mean that you’re going to love sharing the same house together for a week or two. In fact, we’re pretty sure that getting hotel rooms for each individual family is the way to go, and here are four reasons why.
First, it gives you a place to unwind. There’s just something to be said for being able to have some downtime to regroup at the end of the day. You might be one of those that need time to recharge your batteries before you can socialize again in the morning, and that’s okay. Having your own space to retreat to at the end of the day provides that outlet for you.
Second, if you’re there with your young family, having your own hotel room lets, you stick to the routine. Playing with cousins all day is so much fun, but it can be hard to get everyone to calm down and settle in for the night if they are still in play mode. If you have your own room, you can get everyone bathed, put on their favorite movie to help them wind down, or curl up on the bed with a book to read together like you do at home, without the noise of the group.
Third, you get to choose your entertainment for the evening. Whether you want to watch a favorite show or get a movie on TV, you’ve got it made. With each family having their own place to crash at the end of the day, everyone can choose what they want to tune into as they unwind, as opposed to going with the consensus of the group (which can be handy if the tastes of the members of your group are really different).
Fourth, it’s quiet. Need we say more? There isn’t really any explanation necessary for this one. As much as you love the boisterousness when everyone is together, it’s nice to listen to nothing. Plus, if your sister’s kids aren’t sleeping well, they won’t disturb everyone else. (Aaaaaaand…it’s stressful to be that parent whose kid is having a hard time, and you’re worried about keeping everyone else up! This removes that worry entirely.)
Fifth, there are perks. Complimentary breakfasts? A weight room or pool to swim in (making it easy to stay active and exercise while you’re on vacation)? WiFi? Being away doesn’t mean you have to entirely disconnect from the outside world, and it’s also nice to have food provided in the morning instead of having to eat out.
Lastly, having everyone stay in their own rooms (but in the same location) makes it easy to reserve a coach for the whole family’s transportation. No need for multiple cars or parking stress. If everyone is at the same hotel, you can meet up in the morning and be on your way. After recharging at the end of the day and getting a good night’s sleep, you’ll be ready to come back together with everyone, and the laughter and fun can begin while en route to whatever the plan is for the day. A Hotels is great for family reunions, and if your group needs transportation, so is a motorcoach!
