Spending Christmas in a hotel is vastly underrated, in my book. Before you wrinkle your nose at the idea of being anywhere but home for the holidays, consider this: a completely relaxed Christmas with the people you love, in a magical setting you simply get to enjoy. Even if you only do it once, your family will have lifelong memories of the Christmas you had in Santa Fe (or Montana, or Paris…) We’ve searched the globe for six special hotels that make Christmas dreams come true.

From a dog-friendly treat tree to riding ponies in the snow, these hotels offer unforgettable experiences and decor sure to bring out the kid in you, whether it’s Christmas Eve or a special trip leading up to it.

Merry Christmas, everyone.
