Using: to welcome to / in / at


is it possible to use “at” or “in” with “to welcome”?

“We look forward to welcoming you at our hotel/at the Marlow Hotel.”

“We look forward to welcoming you in our hotel/in the Marlow Hotel.”

When I look up “welcome” in the OALD, only “to” is given.

Thanks for your help!


Hello Gromit.

To welcome someone to a place is the standard collocation.

Having said that, the greeting could be viewed as e.g. ‘the staff, who are located at the hotel, welcome the guests’-- so that We welcome you at our hotel is possible (though certainly not the usual form) and in our hotel is even less acceptable. Preferable to the last would be 'into our hotel’.
