Toronto, Canada

There is no greater gift than that of time, and this year, six premier urban Four Seasons hotels have teamed up to offer guests an unforgettable festive season. With the Holiday Getaway - Stay Longer package, guests can enjoy a complimentary third night to take advantage of even more activities, events, or even some extra rest and relaxation in some of North America’s greatest cities.

The Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, New York Downtown, Toronto and Washington, DC hotels feature seasonal spa treatments, special holiday menus, festive décor, kids activities, and more. Steps from each hotel, enjoy ice skating, tree lightings, holiday markets, theatre and more because there’s something exciting for everyone. These festive activities, combined with world-renowned Four Seasons service and amenities, make for the perfect urban getaway.

Allow one of these six distinctively different, yet equally incredible Four Seasons urban hotels create a customised winter wonderland for family and friends during the holidays.

Four Seasons Hotel Baltimore

Leave it to Charm City to put guests in the holiday spirit. Explore the German Christmas Village at the Inner Harbor, and don’t miss Baltimore’s Waterfront Partnership Ice Rink at the Inner Harbor. Head over to Hampden’s 34th Street, otherwise known as “Miracle on 34th Street,” which features enthusiastically decorated homes that have been recognised by Nightline, the Travel Channel, and more. Take an evening stroll around Harbor East, the city’s newest neighbourhood and home to Four Seasons, for holiday shopping and weekly Merriment & Melodies.  Gather the family and climb aboard The Polar Express at the B&O Railroad Museum, or watch the magical Rudolph in 4D at the National Aquarium. One cannot miss the snowflake filled lobby, as Four Seasons hosts its third annual Merry Little Festival benefitting The Packard Center for ALS Research, where guests can peruse beautifully decorated Christmas trees, each with its own unique theme and style.

Four Seasons Hotel Boston

Kick off the holiday season with the magical tree lighting on the Boston Common, located just steps away from the Hotel. Then, take a stroll to the Boston Opera House and see Boston Ballet’s Nutcracker. Also, young guests should not miss Disney on Ice at Agganis Arena. There is no shortage of activities for the outdoorsy traveller: ice-skate on the Boston Commons Frog Pond or check out ski trails located about one hour outside of Boston. To see true Boston sports fans, check out a Celtics or Bruins game at TD Garden.

Four Seasons Hotel Chicago

Chicago has a sleigh-full of festive activities this holiday season. Located just steps away from the city’s famed Magnificent Mile, the Hotel allows for an easy and stress-free holiday shopping experience. Guests can even leave bulky cold-weather gear in their room, as the Hotel is just one elevator button away from the 900 North Michigan Shops.  The McCormick Tribune Ice Rink at Millennium Park boasts an incredible skyline backdrop, and is a must-do for visitors of all ages. Then, warm up next to the fireplace with a cup of cider or seasonal cocktail at Allium Restaurant and Bar. And, Chicago is not the “second city” when it comes to world class theatre, so don’t miss a performance, such as A Christmas Carol, or the Broadway sensation, Hamilton. Spend the late afternoon at Lincoln Park Zoo’s annual ZooLights that features one-of-a-kind luminous displays and holiday activities, and return for a seasonal treatment at the Hotel’s Spa, such as the luxurious Arctic Berry Facial.

Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown

Look no further than the “NEW” New York for a taste of pure holiday magic. Celebrate at the annual Seaport District Tree Lighting Ceremony, complete with celebrity music performances, themed delicacies, signature window displays and the official opening of the seasonal Seaport holiday market. And of course, no winter season is ever complete without an ice skating excursion, so be sure to visit The Rink at Brookfield Place, overlooking the city’s serene North Cove Marina waterfront. Following a day of skating, guests will find themselves ready for holiday retail therapy at Brookfield Place’s luxury stores and the new Westfield shopping mall at the Santiago Calatrava-designed Oculus. When it’s time to head back inside, get cosy at CUT by Wolfgang Puck surrounded by good friends and family, specialty holiday cocktails and warm dark chocolate soufflés on repeat.

Four Seasons Hotel Toronto

There’s no shortage of family activities over the holiday season in Toronto. Ice skate on the Harbourfront set against the beautiful shoreline of Lake Ontario, uncover the perfect holiday gifts at the Toronto Christmas Market, and experience the Cavalcade of Lights celebration, featuring live music, fireworks and ice-skating galore. A day trip to Blue Mountain to ski, snowboard or snowshoe is a popular adventure for families. Upon returning to the Hotel, release stress with a Healing Bamboo Massage at the Spa, or enjoy a festive feast at Café Boulud, home of the city’s best rotisserie chicken.

Four Seasons Hotel Washington, DC

Re-imagine the season of light at Georgetown GLOW, the region’s only curated outdoor exhibition of modern light-art installations, set against the historic backdrop of DC’s oldest neighbourhood. Steps away from the Georgetown hotel, enjoy ice-skating at Washington Harbor overlooking the Potomac River. Then, visit the annual Downtown DC Holiday Market, located in the heart of the city’s Penn Quarter neighbourhood, to find more than 150 exhibitors of fine art, jewelry, photography, and more. Make time to tour the award-winning holiday attraction, ICE! featuring Santa Claus is Comin’ To Town, a sparking wonderland of two million pounds of hand-carved ice sculptures. During the evening, tour the National Zoo's free winter Fairyland, ZooLights with more than 500,000 environmentally-friendly LED lights and enjoy music performances, holiday treats and shopping. Take a candlelight tour of DC’s beautiful historic homes, adorned in festive holiday décor and return to the Hotel's BOURBON STEAK restaurant for a hot buttered rum or Baja hot chocolate. With an abundance of seasonal activities for visitors of all ages, it’s not surprising to find Washington, DC as a leading destination for winter holiday travel.
