6 Reasons a Hotel Is the Best Conference Venue


With all that goes into organising a conference, corporate meeting or event, choosing the best venue for your needs is so important. From location, layout, look & feel, and access to services, every detail is key to ensure your delegates are satisfied.

At PH Hotels, we know just what to do. We’ve got years of experience in planning events and  proudly offer 22 venues across the UK and Europe, with superb conference & meeting rooms at each location, perfect for hosting your delegates.

There are many reasons why hotels are often the best venue to hold conferences and events. So when you plan your next event – big or small – be sure to consider the following tidbits sourced from our very own professional event planners:

  1. Well-Equipped Event Spaces

    When it comes to planning and hosting an event, the fewer details you have to manage, the better! When you hold an event at one of our properties, you’ll enjoy a well-equipped event space that has more than what you’ll need to be successful.

    From state-of-the-art AV equipment, to tables, chairs, flip charts, notepads, sweets and more, you can leave everything else at home and show up to a venue that’s professionally prepared and ready to go.

  2. Oversight From Professional Planners

    Event management can be a daunting task. From invites to AV and set-up, there’s a lot to consider. But when you plan an event with PH Hotels, you can rest assured knowing that your dedicated event planning team has the details under control. You’ll have a core team of professionals that will get to know you, your style, and taste, making the planning and arrangements that much easier.

  3. Access to Overnight Accommodations

    We’ll go ahead and state the obvious, but holding longer events at a hotel has some pretty clear advantages. Guests enjoy your event, followed by a relaxing stay in one of our many luxury guest rooms. Avoid the inconveniences of multiple locations. Enjoy multiple star stays, conferences rooms, and dining all at one of our properties.

  1. Proximity to Attractions & Things To Do

    Need space to hold an icebreaker exercise? Or what about a team-building activity or break activity during the afternoon, or maybe just some down-time? Properties like Eastwood Hall in Nottingham and the Selsdon Park Hotel in Surrey both have stunning acres upon acres of open grounds ready for your team’s activities – not to mention, the latter also boasts championship golf courses!

    Many of our properties are also located to nearby sights and attractions. Consider Hotel Russell, located in Russell Square, home to sought-after parks, shops, and more, Grand Connaught Rooms, located just minutes from Covent Garden, as well as the St David’s Hotel & Spa, located on Cardiff Bay, a beautiful waterfront lined with popular shops, restaurants, and more.

  2. Work With Trusted Partners

    When holding an event at one of the PH properties, you’ll be working with trusted event planning professionals who are both trained and experienced. No matter what you throw at us, chances are we’ve seen – or implemented – it before! The best part? We come highly recommended. Don’t hesitate to request references from any one of our properties and learn what past guests have to say.

    For good measure, see what guests have said about their experiences working with the Palace Hotel in Manchester [PDF], or the Ettington Chase Hotel in Stratford Upon Avon [PDF].

  3. Benefit From Special Rates & Packages

    Last but certainly not least, our conference venues are pleased to provide a suit of offers, special rates & packages for your conference needs. Explore our associated offers and packages.
