ARLINGTON, VA (PRWEB) August 24, 2015
With summer vacations still on the minds of many, the Hilton Crystal City at Washington Reagan National Airport is giving people a reason to think about winter. The hotel is offering a special for those who book holiday parties early. The hotel is managed by Crescent Hotels & Resorts, an operator of over 100 hotels throughout North America, including 16 in the Washington, DC area.
“It’s become an annual event for us,” said Harold Bassler, the hotel General Manager. “Many of our regular clients are always asking about our ‘summer sale on winter’ promotion.” The hotel has 22 function rooms spanning across over 25,000 square feet of meeting and event space.
When looking for space for holiday parties for their companies, planners find it to be a balancing act of rates, preferred dates and budget. “Being one of the larger ‘event space hotels’ in the area we have the flexibility to find the perfect size room for literally any group from 20 to 500,” said Bassler. “We can also get creative with those planners that are on a tighter budget. Last year, many clients felt having their corporate holiday parties on a Wednesday or Thursday worked well. Not only did it allow them to save money, but the feedback from their associates was very positive as they were able to spend key weekend nights in the winter with their families. Another option is having a lunch event rather than a dinner party.”
The Hilton Crystal City at Washington Reagan National Airport is offering a “Summer Sale on Winter” special, allowing those planners that book their winter events by September 30, 2015 to receive the following perks:
- Double Hilton Planner Points
- Overnight Stay for the Planner with Breakfast and Parking
- A Weekend Stay for Two with Breakfast and Parking
- Two Bottles of Wine
- Additional surprise gift

“The addition of offering an overnight weekend stay and two bottles of wine was very well received last year,” said Bassler. “We suggested that planners give these as door prizes at the event or prior to the event in office drawings. It’s a great way to build excitement for their holiday party.” The Hilton also offers “take the elevator home” rates. These are discounted rates where party guests can plan to stay overnight and extend the celebration.
As summer slowly comes to a close, it will still be months before holiday decorations begin to fill the stores and people say, “it’s way too early to think about the holidays.” For many who opted to save their company money and secure the best holiday dates, they will be saying, “Holidays, I took care of that months ago.”
