Did You Know That Some Hotels Also Host Wake Ceremonies?

When we were checking out the new rooms at the Holiday Inn near Heathrow yesterday, we also stumbled upon this interesting service they offer–a wake ceremony.

Clearly, this is not a funeral home so we don’t think the wake is a proper wake (if you know what we mean) but rather a place for folks to gather, perhaps after the burial, to pay tribute.

While we’re certain that many hotels have hosted similar receptions, we’ve never seen one advertise this on their website. But then again, maybe we just weren’t looking for it.

Will You Wake Up Christmas Morning in a Hotel? Tell Us About It!

Despite being in the travel industry and finding ourselves on the road much of the year, the holidays are the one period of time where we can guarantee a few nights at home in our own bed. In all honesty, this contributor has never woken up on Christmas morning in a hotel room, so the idea of it seems very foreign in some way. Hotels are our home away from home, but there’s never been a substitute for waking up in our own bed on Christmas morning.

Sitting here, we wonder what it would be like to rise on the 25th in a hotel. What would we do? How would we spend our morning?
