Fairmont’s Santa Suites – Santa’s Home Away From Home

This image is no longer available


This holiday season, select hotels across the Americas will be host to a Santa Suite, a specially decorated suite or workshop that serves as Santa’s home away from the North Pole. Hotel guests and the general public alike can tour the Santa Suite, each unique to its hotel, with memory-making touches ranging from lavish Christmas décor and guided tours conducted by Santa’s elves, to letter writing stations, cookies and cocoa, and gifts for the children on his “nice list.”

Below represents a snapshot of participating destinations across the Americas.
The Explorers’ Club at Fairmont Grand del Mar transforms from an adventure-themed kids’ club to a Winter Wonderland Workshop fit for Santa and his elves. Young explorers will become Santa’s helpers with holiday-themed arts and crafts, gingerbread house making, cookie decorating and more.

For the past two years, from late November through Christmas, Swissôtel Chicago has been Santa’s hotel of choice in Chicago, and the Presidential Suite has been specially-decorated as Santa’s home away from the North Pole. Each year, the Santa Suite welcomes more than 5,000 guests and locals per year to tour and take photos, chat with the elves, write a letter to the man in red, and take home a keepsake ornament.

Visit Santa’s tropical retreat at Fairmont Mayakoba, where the man in red can be found in surf shorts instead of a snowy sleigh. Enjoy holiday music, games and movies; cookie baking; arts and crafts; and more seasonal activities.

Stop by Fairmont Royal York and write a letter to Santa, sip on hot chocolate, and sample holiday cookies and candy canes. Lucky guests will catch Santa himself for a photo, and all donations will be donated to the Children’s Wish Foundation.

Visit Fairmont San Francisco for the famed two-story gingerbread house and stay over like Santa himself! A Santa Suite stay includes private breakfast inside the gingerbread house, candy and hot chocolate bar, library of holiday movies and more!

Tour Santa’s very own suite on the 21st floor of Fairmont Winnipeg, whimsically themed after the Nutcracker. Meet Santa, indulge with a stop at the dessert café, and enjoy family friendly activities including cookie decorating with our chefs.

Sometimes Santa needs to stay in a castle! Tour his ‘home’ at Fairmont Banff Springs and observe his toy workshop and his personal letter reply station, sip on hot cocoa and sample holiday cookies, or better yet enjoy weekend brunch with Santa himself! The Santa Suite is available for private bookings for bedtime stories, dinner, gift opening and more!

Tour Santa’s top-floor suite at Fairmont Macdonald in Edmonton and write letters to Santa, sample tasty holiday treats, and take photos with the big man himself. Guests can even book their holiday event in Santa’s home away from home, and the hotel will make a donation to the Christmas Bureau.

At Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge, guests are invited to participate in Santa’s craft workshop, send letters to the North Pole, and enjoy a holiday hangout with the man of the season amidst a winter wonderland featuring holiday movies, skating with the elves, Christmas baking and much more!

Come meet Santa in his very own suite at Fairmont Le Château Frontenac, where he will be giving away special gifts to every child who visits.
