Hotel Bennett

Every Wednesday in July, Camellias at Hotel Bennett will host Tea with Santa.

Guests can join Ole Saint Nick while he’s on his summer break and enjoy festive activities like pineapple decorating and holiday-themed treats. Admission for adults is $95 and $65 for children under 12.

The Restoration Hotel

The hotel is hosting a giveaway running now through Wednesday, July 10. You can nominate a local family to win a two-night stay in Santa’s suite with a giant Christmas tree, presents, and dinner at the Watch Rooftop.

And the festivities continue. Beginning Saturday, July 20, through July 28, The Library in this hotel will have a mailbox for early letters for Santa and Christmas music.

If you know of any other Christmas in July events going on around town, let the team know.
