21 Hotels That Deck The Halls For The Holidays

Posted: 11/29/10 07:40 AM ET

The holiday season is officially underway, and hotels around the world are joining the festivities. From crystal-decor trees in London to ice sculpture in Nashville, to Candy Land-like adventures in Virginia and reindeers come to life in Berlin, hotels have decked their halls for holiday guests.

'Tis the season not only for giving thanks, but for reflection and rejoicing. Some hotels, like the famous Gaylord Opryland Hotel in Nashville, spent six months renovating the hotel after a devastating flood to open in time for their Christmas spectacular. In Switzerland, the pine forests paint the picture for the perfect winter wonderland and in Paris, Disney characters come to life to charm the child in all of us.

With the help of our friends at, we've compiled some of the best hotel holiday decorations to help set the mood for your festivities. Whether you plan to curl up by the fireplace, light the Hanukkah candles, or stay awake in hopes of getting a first glimpse of Santa, there's a hotel ready to welcome you this holiday season.

Celebrating the holidays at Chewton Glen in Hamphire, England is something out of a fairy tale. The luxury country house hotel and spa uses its 130 acres of Hampshire countryside to create a Christmas wonderland. The hotel will donning its holiday best this season with holiday parties and Christmas dinners for guests. Christmas trees are jeweled in twinkling lights and the hotel keeps fires roaring for roasting frosty hands and feet (and probably a few chestnuts). Dust off your dancing jacket and break out your fancy dress for the annual Christmas Dinner Dance at the hotel.
