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.
