It’s crazy to think that five short weeks ago we were checking into our hotel room at the Pavilion Grand for our wedding weekend. It feels like just yesterday that we stepped into the most beautiful hotel room in Saratoga Spring, NY and unpacked all of our clothing, gifts, wedding decor, etc. Truthfully, it felt like we had our own home for the weekend, which was exactly what we wanted.
If you’ve been following along on this journey, you’ve read about why we chose this hotel (details here). To briefly recap, we wanted a hotel room that felt more like a “home away from home” since we were flying in over 100 guests from all over the U.S. and many of them (50+) would at some point in time, join us in the room.
I must admit, calling this a “room” is a bit misleading – our two story penthouse hotel room was over 1,000 square feet and about a million times nicer than our actual apartment. It was outfitted with huge floor to ceiling windows, high end stainless appliances, two balconies and a full size laundry room. The two-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bathroom setup was ideal for hosting. We spent Thursday night hosting a welcome reception for over 30 close family & friends (more to come on that!) and Sunday morning having brunch and pre-track drinks with more family & friends. We chose this specific hotel suite for the layout as it was ideal for hosting.
