Planning a Successful Family Reunion

November 6, 2019

Is it your turn to plan your family reunion travel and activities?

Technology makes it easier than ever for families to stay in touch. Video chats, photo sharing, and instant messaging all help relatives to stay connected from across town or across the world.

However, nothing quite replaces the in-person contact with family, does it? That's why family reunions continue to remain a popular way to connect.

In fact, technology makes organizing a memorable event much easier now than just a few years ago. Family members near and far can collaborate on a date, time and, most importantly, the destination and activities for the reunion.

When organizing a family reunion, the first rule of thumb is to start scouting locations that are easy to reach from many locales. Travel hubs such as Dallas, Denver, and St. Louis are always popular. Smart families book spots a year in advance.

Another tip from experienced family reunion planners: find a hotel that specializes in group experiences.

The Magnolia Hotel Collection, for instance, has locations in a range of family-friendly cities, including those listed above. Additionally, a New Orleans property adjacent to the French Quarter is scheduled to open late this year.

The Denver and Houston properties have recently been renovated. They're especially convenient for guests who want easy and walkable access to downtown shopping, dining, and nightlife.

Here are some standard features of all Magnolia hotels that make them well-suited to family reunions:

Comfort and care.

Magnolia guests enjoy amenities, including complimentary internet access, fitness facilities, and transportation to local attractions.

Professional planning.

Magnolia staff are experts in event organizing. Their customized services include creating menus for any meal, coordinating onsite and off-site activities, and entertainment for a range of ages and interests.

Luxurious accommodations.

A place for everyone.

The hotels also provide a variety of common spaces, including lounges and meeting rooms, that can be used for larger group gatherings and smaller meet-and-greet events.
