Holiday Party Planning Tips and Tricks

Holiday Party planning can be overwhelming – not at Hotel Albuquerque at Old Town. Our experts make party planning easier than saying Ho, Ho, Ho! Here are three tips to get you on your merry way!

Looking to treat your employees to a special holiday event on a budget?

Offering a holiday luncheon allows for a break in the middle of the day.

Offering a holiday luncheon provides a mid-day break.

Tip: Plan a holiday luncheon! A luncheon will give your employees a much appreciated break in the middle of the day, and it’ll help you to keep the guest list at a minimum as you won’t be including spouses and partners.

Are you looking for a way to give back while still giving to your employees?
Tip: All Heritage Hotels & Resorts properties support cultural causes by donating a portion of every guest room fee to the cause. At Hotel Albuquerque at Old Town, a portion of every room night is donated to support the renovation of the San Felipe de Neri Church in Old Town. Hosting your event at Hotel Albuquerque is the easiest way to give back and still have a festive event for your employees. A donation drive the evening of your event can also help your employees join in the fun.

Is your annual attendance and event excitement not what you were hoping for?

The historic Casa Esencia offers a different type of event venue.

Tip: Change the venue or the way you set up your event. Though ballrooms offer versatile space, consider Casa Esencia for your venue. This historic 300-year-old adobe house, located on hotel property, offers an upscale, warm feeling and is the perfect setting to transform your annual holiday event into something your guests look forward to year after year!

Happy holiday party planning,
