By Charlotte Winterbourne

On 1 December 2019, Holiday Inn London – Wembley celebrated the 1st Birthday of its Open Lobby with a phenomenal family-friendly event.

Welcoming over 150 children from the local community to its expansive Empire Suite, the hotel provided an assortment of activities for families, including a bouncy castle, face-painting, arts and crafts, DJ, bubble machine, and numerous party games, alongside a special visit from Santa Claus.

The popular and lively event celebrated the Open Lobby as it commemorated its first successful year of offering spaces for working, dining, drinking or playing to both its surrounding community and hotel residents. Following the triumphant event with record turnout, the team at Holiday Inn London – Wembley has already begun to plan its next event in 2020.

Katie Dartnell, director of meetings and events, said: “The Open Lobby has been a warm and welcoming hub for everyone, so being able to come together as a community and celebrate it has been remarkably special. Both parents and children were able to enjoy themselves due to not only the array of activities on offer, but also the harmonious energy between the guests. We couldn’t have asked for a more successful day and look forward to continuing to welcome the community to the hotel.”
