Sure, the Christmas Tree in your living room is lovely—but since a hotel lobby is a living room for hundreds of guests, designers can really show off their skills with some amazing creations that demand to be seen. Here are just a few notable Christmas Trees at some hotels around the world.
The tree at the Langham Place on Fifth Avenue is an evergreen with a twist. Covering the spruce are real roses in Langham's signature shade of pink, making the lobby smell wonderful while maintaining the brand.
Similarly, the “tree” at the Conrad Centennial Singapore is made of gleaming gold.
The tree at the W Minneapolis The Foshay is geometric and decidedly post-modern, keeping with the ultra-hip vibe of Marriott's W brand.
In London’s ultra-trendy Mayfair neighborhood, the Connaught has opted for simplicity with a natural outdoor tree lit with a single, central pillar of light. It’s elegant and beautiful and needs no further adornment.
In Boston, the Liberty Hotel—a member of the Luxury Collection—has their lobby trees upside-down. After all the stress of the season, something a little surreal is quite welcome.
Christmas trees and palm trees are next to each other in Arizona, where the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess hosts an annual winter festival complete with a light show projected onto the hotel itself and an LED-bedecked tree that changes color all night long.
