Fairmont San Francisco For more than a century, San Francisco’s Fairmont Hotel atop Nob Hill has delighted visitors with awe-inspiring holiday splendor. The hotel is world-famous for its delectably majestic Gingerbread House, built from thousands of cookie bricks, gallons of royal icing, and hundreds of pounds of candy. A 23-foot Christmas tree welcomes all who enter the grand lobby for a holiday feast or gingerbread tea. 

Claremont Club & Spa Spectacular San Francisco Bay views are included with your elaborate brunch at the Claremont. This iconic Bay Area resort rolls out the red carpet for its guests. Holiday festivities include Gingerbread House decorating and Christmas Dinner. 

The Ritz-Carlton Always a Bay Area favorite, the Ritz-Carlton in San Francisco illuminates a stunning 40-foot tree. Opulent weekend holiday teas are served with delicious treats and petite sandwiches, while performances by Stretchy the Elf, Holly Berry, and the giant Ritz Teddy Bear entertain guests young and old. 

 InterContinental Mark Hopkins Hotel If you need an extra spring in your shopping step, a cocktail at the Top of the Mark takes an edge off the season’s madness. Relax, unwind, and soak in the sparkling city lights and breathtaking views from this penthouse lounge located on the hotel’s 19th floor. Say hello to Santa weekends at the Children’s Magical Tea complete with cookie decorating station, book a spot for Christmas brunch, or live it up on New Year’s Eve at a luxe night of dining and dancing.
