Hotel Christmas trees (and other Christmas delights)

Christmas is such a magical time of year and it gives hotels an opportunity to show their creative side and differentiate themselves from their competitors.

I spent a recent Sunday strolling around London visiting a variety of hotels from 5 star properties, individually owned hotels, and chain brands to see how they’re celebrating Christmas and decorating their trees.

I love them all, I think they’re all really individual and complement the style of each hotel. If I had to pick a favourite it would be Le┬áMeridien Piccadilly as their tree isn’t the biggest or jazziest but they’ve created a really unique one by incorporating the business into the decorations which I think is a great touch.

What’s your favourite?
