Is visiting Santa still on your to-do list? If so, a visit to the Swissotel’s Santa Suite is the only way to see him, trust me! This is the third year he’s taken up residence in the hotel’s gorgeous Presidential Suite for the holiday season, and it just gets better every year. Zelda and I are still in awe of how magical the suite is, it’s filled with 12 Christmas trees and a table set for a dinner with some of Santa’s oldest friends. It’s literally something out of a fairy tale with settings for Cupid, the Sandman, Mother Nature and many more! A handful of them even had Christmas trees decorated especially for them, which was so thoughtful of Santa! Zelda was partial to Cupid’s pink and red adorned tree and the little egg tree, made for the Easter Bunny.
Once you explore the front room, take your babes back to the letter writing station so they can send a letter and their wish list to Santa. They even have a convenient mailbox right there that is a direct line to the North Pole, according to an elf that spoke to Zelda! When the letters are finished, Santa and Mrs. Claus are waiting right in the next room to hear all about your little’s Christmas wishes, and of course, snap a few photos. Let me just say, Santa and Mrs. Claus are on point! Once you get that golden shot, if you post it on social media, use the hashtag #SwissSantaSuite so you’re entered to win some prizes from Swissotel!
This amazing event is free, and has a handful of dates left before Santa’s big night rolls around. You can see the list of dates below, and I’d recommend calling Swissotel before you go to make sure Santa wasn’t called out on any urgent, last minute business.
Don’t miss out; it’s so worth working into your busy schedule! I know this time of year is crazy with shopping, parties and coming up with scenarios for your Elf on the Shelf that are kid friendly, but you can do it!
