Hotels Dress Up For The Holidays

Claridge's London

It's that wonderful time of the year, where no matter where you travel to you'll be guided by thousands of twinkling lights and fueled through gingerbread cookies and hot cocoa. It's the holidays, and to celebrate the season hotels around the world are greeting guests with some magical displays and Santa sightings.

From Tiffany-adorned trees to Santas made of sand, hotels deck the halls in all sorts of designs for the holidays. Whether you want to escape the winter weather and celebrate the holidays with your feet in the sand, or you bundle up in your warmest gear and ring in the season on snow-filled streets, there's a hotel waiting to welcome you.

Take a tour of some of the best-dressed hotels for the holidays:
