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.

Holiday Tea
