Christmas at a Five Star Hotel
Many done??t realize that, even if you have got children, you can spend Christmas at a 5 star hotel, as long as you do a little planning ahead of time. The first thing to choose is what 5 star hotel youâ??d like to stay at. Most 5 star hotelâ??s in the north can get pretty busy during the holiday season, while many 5 star hotelâ??s further down south, and in the Caribbean, are a bit slower, so if youâ??re planning to go to a snowy area 5 star hotel for Christmas, make sure you book well ahead of time.
Next, figure out if youâ??re going to open your Christmas presents at the 5 star hotel or when youâ??re at home. If youâ??ve got large presents, it is often much less expensive to open your presents at home rather than to ship them to a 5 star hotel. If youâ??re determined to keep the surprise a surprise, you can take pictures of the present that you are giving the other person and can wrap the photo, or put it in an envelope, and can give it to your partner on Christmas morning at the 5 star hotel. That will allow you to keep the surprise without having to spend a fortune shipping a large present to the 5 star hotel.
Some people feel really guilty about traveling to a 5 star hotel on Christmas instead of staying with family and friends. Donâ??t! Instead of feeling guilty, figure out how you can enjoy the time with your family and friends when youâ??re at home. Spend more time with them before Christmas and before you go to a 5 star hotel, or maybe you will want to invite them to the 5 star hotel with you to have your family party in a luxurious setting and a 5 star hotel, rather than having it at Uncle Alâ??s house once again.
No matter what you decide, make sure that you decide to include everyone in your planning. Let your family know sooner, rather than later, that you plan on going to a 5 star hotel for the holiday, and get your shopping done early, before you go to the 5 star hotel. If youâ??re looking for a more traditional Christmas, including having a tree, ask the hotel concierge at the 5 star hotel if they can bring in a tree for Christmas morning, and if they can have it decorated for you. A little planning and a few questions early on allow you to have a wonderful holiday season at a 5 star hotel; one that you may not have thought you would have before you traveled to a 5 star hotel.
