Holiday Happenings in Rochester MI

The holiday season is a magical time of year in the mitten state. Here at Royal Park Hotel, guests can experience the holidays like a true Michigander. From exploring the Big Bright Light Show in Downtown Rochester, to capturing memorable photos in front of our winter wonderland, staying in one of our holiday-themed suites, dining in PARK 600, giving back to The Salvation Army and so much more. It truly is the most wonderful time of the year! 

Perhaps the most breathtaking part of the winter season is the Big Bright Light Show in Downtown Rochester.

The Salvation Army

Since 2009, Royal Park Hotel has partnered with The Salvation Army of Metro Detroit to bring Christmas joy to visitors. We are excited to celebrate the 15th anniversary of this community partnership, which has raised more than $250,000 to help northern Oakland County residents in need. Once again this year, The David W. Elliott Memorial Foundation is generously matching $5,000 to help those in need in our area.

Some of the ways you can help support this year include:

  • Donating to one of the iconic Salvation Army red kettles
  • Dining in PARK 600! $1 from each dessert purchased will be donated to The Salvation Army.
  • Sponsoring a gingerbread ornament for a $10 or $25 donation
  • Purchase one of our gingerbread cookie mix kits to take & bake at home! Pick up is Tuesday, December 5th.  $5 from every kit purchased will be donated to The Salvation Army to help those in need in our area.
