Factors in Finding the Ideal Hotel Event Venue

When searching for the best event venue, remember to consider: 

●  Function: Does the event venue meet your functional needs? Are the rooms flexible? Do they have the technology you need? Is the venue designed for the type of event you are hosting?

●  Parking: How much onsite parking is available? Does the event venue offer overnight parking? Is there a valet? Is there street parking, or offsite lots?

●  Size: What is the event venue’s minimum and maximum capacity? Are the sizes of the rooms flexible enough to accommodate your event? Are there multiple rooms available? And are those rooms all the same size?

●  Services: What services and amenities make the event venue stand out? Can they cater your event? What about guest rooms and suites? Is there an attached restaurant, or onsite spa services? 

●  Ambiance: What is the event venue’s overall aesthetic? Is it laid back and sophisticated? Sleek, modern, and functional? Is the decor distracting, or does the design lend itself to hosting an enjoyable and easy-going event?

●  Accessibility: Can all guests access this event? What is the ADA accessibility details? Can the staff help with any special needs and/or requests? Are there ADA-compliant rooms? Does the event venue have A/V and technical support for those with disabilities?

Acoustics: How are the acoustics at the event venue? Does the A/V equipment support speakers and/or hosts? Are the rooms sound-proofed, or does noise bounce around? Are the rooms set up so that all guests can hear and participate?
