Holiday Decor In Hotels: 6 Cheerful Hotel Lobbies that Embrace the Holiday Season!

The holidays are here in full swing and hotels are gearing up as well! We have collected some great images of hotel lobbies that have really gotten into the spirit of the season and decorated to their hearts' content, without going overboard and being too gaudy!

Massive Bulbs Fill this Bright Space

The Bellagio Las Vegas goes big for Christmas! These massive tree decorations among a bed of vibrant flowers clearly tell anyone that it's the holiday season! The other pieces in this scene, like the trees in the background, and the flying reindeer, manage to be simple enough under the massive glass ceiling that they are not over the top, and elegantly convey what time of year it is.

Four Seasons Knows Howto Decorate for the Winter Season!

Christmas trees caged in ornamental beads fill the hotel lobby of the Four Seasons New York. The whole place sparkles and shines with simple and luxurious holiday design that goes with the building's design itself; simple, elegant, and conducive to high class! Sometimes all you need is traditional Christmas trees to really convey the looks of the season!

Pure Elegance in New York

Framing an absolutely gorgeous and massive chandelier, two huge Christmas trees decked out in lights grace the lobby of the Waldorf Astoria in New York. Simple and traditional, these decorations show elegance and luxury while not being gaudy and over the top!

Golden Reindeer Take Center Stage in Paris

Looking more like a shiny computer-generated model than an actual decoration, these magnificent golden reindeer surrounding a tree in the same style are something to be in awe of! Even Oprah Winfrey was stunned by these decorations. Gold being a color of luxury, and functioning well with the surrounding marble colors, the Four Seasons Paris may be one of the most impressive decorated hotel lobbies on our list!

Hotel Del Coronado Takes the Crown for Lights

California's Hotel Del Coronado stands out as a hotel that knows how to use Christmas lights well! This relatively dark space is lit up by the massive tree centerpiece, as well as the less obvious strings of lights that drape over the upper level's railings. In such a dark space, this was the best choice of decorations the hotel could have gone with!

Multiple Levels of Simplicity and Cheer

It helps when white, a primary Christmas color, is already the prominent color in your hotel, and it also helps when gold light, the most common Christmas light color, is already the color of your hotel's lighting fixtures. This allows The Raffles Hotel in Singapore to be extremely simple but also extremely effective in how it decorates for the holidays. A simple tree and garlands on every level is all it takes to look perfectly festive, yet nothing too extravagant was done. A hotel does not need to be a wonderland of decorations to be festive!

Which hotel was your favorite? Do you have a favorite hotel that goes all out for the holidays? Even better, are you staying in any festive hotels this season? Share with us, we would love to know!
