Are you trying to have the best Christmas that you ever had? If so, New York might be the right place for that. And if you are not from here, probably you will need a nice hotel to stay. NYC’s elaborate Christmas window displays may get all of the attention in December, but hotels in Manhattan go all out in their holiday decor too.

The Palace is known for its huge Christmas tree (30-foot) that glows behind the iron gates of the hotel’s historic Madison Avenue courtyard. With 3,000 lights, red and gold ribbons and ornaments, and a shining star up top, this is definitely one of the places you want to see.
The team at the Plaza works overnight on Thanksgiving to dress up the entire iconic hotel, so guests wake up surprised the next morning. Wreaths and garland covered in ornaments are strung outside and on every window, and greeting guests at the Fifth Avenue entrance, is an 18-foot tree with 5,000 lights and 500 ornaments.
The Meatpacking District hotel’s lobby gets a total holiday makeover every year to become NYC’s most eccentric winter scene. If you want to be surprised, this is the place you are looking for. Trust me!
Four seasons Hotel is one of the most iconic of New York, and in Christmas it still is. With a 25-foot artificial tree, wrapped in 100 feet of custom-made garland and accented with 12,000 lights, red bows and large red, gold and silver ornaments, it takes 10 sets of hands and nine hours to assemble, this is one of the best places to visit.
One of the best decorations that you will see, will be at St. Regis Hotel. Nutcrackers flank each side of the 55th Street entrance, and inside, garland and ornaments are wrapped along banisters and walls. Trees in the lobby this year are trimmed with a mix of ribbons and ornaments in silver, gold, black and white, then topped with white turtle doves and bird cages.
