The Holiday Lodge boasts a hot cocoa nook, twinkling lights, buffalo plaid, faux fur and other touches to create a holiday feel straight out of favorite Hallmark holiday movies. Guests booking the Holiday Lodge also receive two tickets to Winter City Lights, an 18-acre festival about 20 minutes from the hotel; and complimentary valet parking.


Dana Hall, founder, LUSHNICS, designed the Holiday Lodge, and said, “I’m a huge Christmas movie fan, I usually have the Hallmark channel on all the time during the holiday season, so it was a fun task to recreate their ultra-cozy aesthetic.”

Hello Betty, the hotel’s on-site restaurant, crafted a special seasonal menu exclusive for Holiday Lodge guests, allowing them to make selections prior to arrival for a more seamless, stress-free experience. Some of the festive specialties include the Warm and Fuzzy Cocktail, Kevin McCallister’s Pizza Party and Buddy the Elf’s Cookies Platter. All can be delivered to the Holiday Lodge.
