Celebrate With Trees of Hope


Celebrate, save and give back, all at the same time with Fairmont’s annual Trees of Hope, charity initiative. ‘Tis the season!

The holidays are a magical time of year, especially at Fairmont destinations in Canada, the US, Mexico, Barbados and Bermuda. Every year, these iconic hotels and resorts deck the halls and celebrate with a wealth of holiday activities and festive events that are guaranteed to get you in the spirit of the season.

If you’re planning an unforgettable holiday adventure, one great way is through Fairmont’s annual Trees of Hope Charity initiative. It’s unique in that it gives you access to a world of holiday fun with up to 25% off and Fairmont will donate $10 to a worthy local cause for each night of your stay. It is the season of giving, after all!

The only question is where to go? There are so many amazing choices, each one offering something different. The first step is to decide if you want to escape winter or make the most of it. From winter wonderlands surrounded by snowcapped mountains, to sun-kissed tropical paradises, Fairmont has a destination for everyone.

To help narrow it down, let’s take a look at some of the most exciting holiday destinations and see what they have planned—starting with Fairmont Grand Del Mar.

You haven’t made merry until you’ve experienced Winter Wonderland at The Grand. There, amongst the twinkling palms, you can cook s’mores over a crackling fire, take carousel and Ferris wheel rides and sip festive beverages in the Moët & Chandon Champagne Garden. There’s even an ice-skating rink and sledding—a real rarity in sunny San Diego.

Another must-visit festive destination can be found nearby at Fairmont San Francisco, which has been delighting holiday guests for over a century. Their awe-inspiring centerpiece is a two-story edible gingerbread house, built with thousands of gingerbread bricks and gallons of royal icing and hundreds of pounds of candy. It even has a special room that you can reserve for a unique dining experience. Every year, guests, visitors and locals flock to see this true holiday landmark in the City by the Bay. And it’s just the beginning of the holiday fun.

If you’re seeking more of a true winter wonderland experience, look no further than “Christmas at the Castle” at Fairmont Banff Springs. Here, surrounded by the beautiful backdrop Banff National Park, the magic of the holidays comes to life. From Snow-Flake Scavenger Hunts and Letters from Santa, to professional productions of The Christmas Carol, you’ll find plenty of holiday cheer. And all that is on top of the endless outdoor winter activities. 

Next, we head over to Quebec’s Fairmont Le Château Montebello. After all, there’s no cozier place to celebrate the holidays than by the giant fireplace in the world’s largest luxury log cabin. The festivities begin early as November at this iconic resort, where you’ll enjoy everything from traditional horse-drawn sleigh rides and fireside caroling, to festive feasts and holiday galas.

From tropical beaches to winter wonderlands, Fairmont has the destination that’s on your holiday wish list. And by booking the Trees of Hope offer, you can feel good that your getaway is supporting a deserving cause. Last year alone, Trees of Hope raised over $500,000 for local charities—now that’s a holiday miracle!
