Nine festive hotels for holiday stays
Many people will spend the holidays at home or visiting family, but for some, it has become tradition to spend the time on vacation. Just because you’re staying in a hotel doesn’t mean you’ll miss out on holiday cheer; in fact, these amazing holiday hotels around the globe go above and beyond to spread the holiday spirit. Think: welcome mugs of hot chocolate, elaborate Christmas decorations, visits from Santa, carol singing and more. Feeling Christmas-y yet?
New York Palace
New York City
The?New York Palace?is one of the best hotels for enjoying Christmas in New York City. It offers a prime location right next to St. Patrick’s Cathedral (which has Christmas masses) and about a block away from the giant tree and famous skating rink at Rockefeller Center. It also has guards in toy-soldier-style uniforms next to the stunning outdoor Christmas tree (they are happy to pose for photos!) and a Nutcracker brunch at Villard Michel Richard
We can’t imagine a better place to wake up on Christmas morning than?an Irish castle. The hotel offers a special Christmas and New Year package, and will be offering mulled wine and mince pies to guests who arrive on Christmas Eve. As if that weren’t enough, Santa Claus himself will show up at 10 p.m. with gifts for guests, which will be followed by carol singing. If that won’t get you in the Christmas spirit, nothing will!
Las Vegas may be known as Sin City, but its world-class shopping and elaborate decorations actually make it an amazing Christmas destination.?The Bellagio?decks out its conservatory and botanical garden with jaw-dropping d?cor every year; expect a giant tree, polar bears and reindeer. After you’re done oohing and aahing, you can stock up on Christmas presents at 42,000-square-foot Via Bellagio luxury shopping area, home to Chanel, Fendi, Dior and more.
