If home is where the heart is, Christmas is where the roaring fire and fragrant wreaths are. International Christmas travel often feels like a compromise—on the one hand, it’s a great time to take a big trip because the office is quiet and school is out. But the counter argument is that being away from home at Christmastime, especially when you have traditions your family observes year after year, can be challenging. If you’re spending this holiday season abroad, one solution is to choose a hotel that will help you and your family celebrate the festive season with a hearty dose of Christmas spirit. That way, you’ll be able to tap into familiar traditions while experiencing new holiday customs. These hotels bring the holiday season to life with their decor and Christmas festivities.
