If you’re traveling this month, consider a stay at a Fairmont property. The brand is in full celebratory swing as Christmas approaches, with near-endless ways for family travelers to play.


At Fairmont San Francisco, a life-sized gingerbread house is on display through the New Year. The gingerbread house, despite its size, is, yes, real gingerbread. It takes hundreds of hours for the hotel’s culinary team to complete. For those who can’t get enough of this seasonal delight, it offers a private dining experience inside the house.


At Fairmont Grand Del Mar, ice skating gets an upgrade, with the property’s “glice skating” experience. The rink is an eco-friendly alternative to a traditional ice-skating rink. The property rents out skates if needed, and Santa will be on site for photo ops on weekends this month.


For fans of Home Alone 2, The Plaza lets you channel your inner Kevin McCallister, with a  special stay bundle that includes a limo ride around the city, including visits to filming locations; a large cheese pizza; and a gigantic sundae Kevin would approve of. (Can’t make it to NYC before the holidays? This is one holiday offer available year-round.)


If you’re south of the border for the season, consider a stop by Fairmont Mayakoba for a full lineup of kid-friendly Christmas fun, including visits from Santa, holiday parties and holiday movies on the beach.
