Take a look below and be sure to book your stay with us here at Holiday Inn San Francisco International Airport. We’re conveniently located, with beautiful and clean accommodations, fantastic on-site amenities (including on-site dining), and affordable rates.
Visit the Fairmont Gingerbread HouseThe Fairmont Hotel is known for its magnificent gingerbread house that they put on display every year in their lobby. It’s two stories high and so massive that even adults can walk through! There are fully functioning miniature trains that ride around the house, as well. Truly a magical (and delicious!) spectacle not to be missed. The gingerbread house’s grand opening takes place on November 23.
Westin St. Francis Sugar Castle & Enchanted CastleAnother landmark San Francisco hotel, the Westin St. Francis, is also known for its holiday traditions. The resident hotel pastry chef creates castles made entirely out
of sweets every year — this year’s opening is on November 21. Don’t miss the pop-up shop where you can buy a wide variety of even more tasty treats.
A Christmas Carol at American Conservatory TheaterA Bay Area holiday mainstay, this annual production of A Christmas Carol is presented by longstanding local theatre company, the American Conservatory Theater. The beloved Charles Dickens’ classic runs this year from December 6 to 29.
Pier 39 and Fisherman’s WharfHead down to Pier 39 and Fisherman’s Wharf to take in the beautifully illuminated Pier 39 tree. Visitors will enjoy a new hourly nightly show set to festive music, which runs from November 21 to January 1. Be sure to catch the famous Fisherman’s Wharf lighted boat parade on December 14, too, for a unique San Francisco experience.
