Ten Gorgeous, Inspiring Holiday Displays in the City

Looking for the best holiday lighting and decoration display or activities in SF? Well, we have among some of the most beautiful and inspiring in the world, and with the chilly temps we’ve been happening we can pretend there’s snow. From the folks at sftravel.com here’s a list of ten displays or activities from past and present to make part of your holiday enjoyment this year.

Check out the Ritz Carlton Hotel holiday tree at 40-feet tall with fabulous decorations amid the cheery plushness of the hotel.

The Hyatt Regency always produces a spectacular display in its Guinness Book of World Records’ largest atrium lobby in the world. Usually on display are a 45-foot tree, thousands of cascading lights, and a few years ago they even had a snow fall three times a day.

The Place Hotel has created a Gingerbread Chateau, a semi-real gingerbread house that is 8 feet by 16 feet. Designed by Executive Pastry Chef Renee Cade, the house features a hand-tied, licorice thatched roof (ummm good), a marzipan-made kitchen staffed by apple elves, a foyer festooned with a crystallized sugar chandelier, and much more. The house benefits the nonprofit SFCASA that helps abused children.
