Event Hotel Ballrooms are Great For
Hotel ballrooms are not just excellent venue choices for the amenities that they include, they also play host to an impressively wide variety of events. While most would associate the renting of a hotel ballroom with a wedding venue, these ballrooms are also great for other large family activities such as family reunions and large birthday parties. They can also host more professional gatherings as well including, but not limited to, corporate and training events, conferences, charity and benefit events, large meetings, and even small concerts.
Pros and Cons of a Hotel Wedding
- When hosting your special day at a hotel wedding venue there are a lot of benefits that come with having the event at such an inclusive venue, but with having these amenities come quite a few detriments.
- Pros - You can save money on furniture rentals, both the ceremony and the reception can be held in the same place, built-in accommodations, high-quality facilities on-site, an experienced staff on-hand, comes decorated, can hold a large number of guests, and the wedding packages provided can sometimes be cheaper than finding individual vendors.
- Cons- There can be unexpected costs (overtime charges, valet and parking, cake-cutting fees, etc.), wedding packages can be expensive, decoration and layout can be inflexible, might not be as private as you’d like in such a public venue, not much room for creativity and personalization due to hotel restrictions, and might require a certain number of guests to book rooms in the hotel.
What Factors Impact Hotel Ballroom Rental Prices
While the type of event you are hosting is already bound to affect the price of renting out a hotel ballroom, there are several other factors to take into account when getting a quote for your event. First off, you want to consider the location of the venue (whether it is in a major city or a less populated area), but also, any additional packages you might be booking under (wedding packages for example), any gratuity for the staff, the size of your guest list, taxes and additional fees, valet and parking costs, and any decoration provided by the venue. Some of these costs might be included in the blanket rental fee of the ballroom, but be sure when booking to get a full quote so you know ahead of time what amenities come with your reservation and can prepare accordingly for any additional charges.
