It’s the most wonderful time of the year!

For more than a century, Fairmont San Francisco has enchanted guests with its joyful holiday festivities and exuberant seasonal ambience. From our life-sized Gingerbread House and Holiday Tea to staying in Santa’s very own Suite, we have something for everyone to cheer.


What is 22 feet high, 23 feet wide and full of thousands of bricks, a ton of royal icing and candy décor? Our famed and much beloved two-story-high Victorian Gingerbread House which will be back this year in our lobby. Debuting Saturday, November 27 at 11:00 am at a ribbon-cutting ceremony, the Gingerbread House will be on display throughout the entire holiday season.

Want to dine inside the house? Private dining opportunities will be available for booking starting October 15th.


Ring in the holidays with our spectacular Santa Suite Package, including a stay in a festively decorated Specialty Suite that Santa and Mrs. Claus call “home” when they are in San Francisco. From overnight accommodations in a family-friendly, luxury suite and Santa’s “Candy and Hot Chocolate Bar” to a Gingerbread House kit and a holiday classic movie, there’s not better place to park your sleigh and stay.


Holiday Tea

The holiday season is not complete without a celebration of tradition and magic with Fairmont San Francisco’s Holiday Tea. Enjoy the ambiance of Laurel Court’s sophisticated charm with family and friends over steaming post of fine loose-leaf tea and house-made scones, tea sandwiches, luscious pastries and sweets. Keep holiday traditions flourishing or make new memories to cherish for years to come.


Our annual Trees of Hope charitable initiative helps you give back this holiday season. Stay tuned for more information on our special charitable offer available soon.
