Festive Holiday Decorations to See Around the Globe

A towering tree wrapped in hundreds of ornaments that takes your breath away as you step into a hotel lobby. Fresh greenery that turns a hotel restaurant into a winter wonderland fragrant with Fraser fir. An elegant hotel window display that brings back warm holiday memories as a child. Festive decorations all around the world bring the holiday season to life, and we’re sharing some of our favorites from the JG Black Book Collection! From towering Christmas trees at The Stafford London to a garland-topped cozy fireplace at Vintage House in Napa, there sure is a lot to see this season!


Find the most Christmas trees at The Stafford London: When it comes down to Christmas decorations and trees, London produces an incredible glittering display each year. With over one hundred Christmas trees and hundreds of baubles decorating the hotel, The Stafford London knows how to set an example for the English Capital! From the reception to The American Bar and The Game Bird, every inch of the hotel’s décor is wrapped up in magical lights and decorations. As a hotel guest, wake up to your very own tree in your bedroom and enjoy a glass of mulled wine underneath the Christmas trees in the cobbled courtyard for the ultimate festive feeling!


Vintage House: Classic, festive string lights brighten the trees outside of the Vintage House lobby, while lavender and pink ornaments bring a Vintage House feel to the towering snow-lined tree inside. The white, frosty touches around the lobby complete the look, turning this corner of Yountville, California into a winter wonderland to be experienced!


The Principal York: The walled city of York lends itself to creating a little holiday magic, from the roast chestnuts stalls at the St. Nicholas Fair to the sound of carols soaring from York Minster. The Principal York is joining in the city’s celebrations too! From their beautiful, festive decor to Christmas Day lunch in the Refectory Kitchen & Terrace to a festive afternoon tea served in the Garden Room.


Martinhal Sagres Beach Family Resort Hotel: Experience the holidays with the whole family at Martinhal Sagres Family Resort Hotel, a welcome escape from the everyday with understated luxury and five-star accommodations. Located on the stunning, unspoiled beachfront of Portugal’s Western Algarve, you’ll not only be treating your eyes to festive decorations like a giant Christmas tree, but also to views of the gorgeous coastline!


Hotel Raphael: Feel the festive season come to life when you step through the front doors of Hotel Raphael, your home-away-from-home in Paris. From the lobby’s flocked Christmas tree adorned in classic gold ornaments to the holiday spirit that fills the air in the English Bar and Le 17, Hotel Raphael is the place to be in Paris during the holidays!


Sonnenalp Hotel: The Sonnenalp Hotel welcomes its guests over the holiday season by extending “Gemütlichkeit” – the warmest European hospitality! The charming, family-run gem in Vail brings the holiday season to life with its festive decor and special holiday events like “Christmas Cocktails and Glühwein” and “Warming Fire with S ’mores and Sweets,” amongst many more!
