Feeling festive? Head to the Ritz-Carlton Philadelphia, elegantly decked out for the holiday season and hosting great programming and specials to tap into the holiday spirit.
First off, the hotel has the largest mistletoe in Philadelphia, a the custom-built, three-foot ball wrapped in red ribbon, currently hanging in the historic building’s lobby, amid other stunning seasonal décor.
You can also join 10 Arts for the time-honored tradition of roasted chestnuts over an open fire, out on the hotel’s outdoor veranda. Partake in roasting on Fridays and Saturdays, 5-7 p.m., through December 24, for $6 per dozen chestnuts.
Or warm up with a mug of 10 Arts’ signature hot chocolate. Three styles of luxurious Valrhona chocolate are served up daily from noon–5 p.m., topped with whipped cream and chocolate shavings. It’ll set you back $8 for a “nice” hot chocolate, $14 for a “naughty,” spiced up with a cordial.
Speaking of which, 10 Arts is also whipping up winter warmers like Fireside spiced cider, infused with rum, apples, cinnamon and cloves; and Nana’s Cold Remedy, orange, lemon zest, cinnamon-infused Woodford Reserve and honey.
Festive cocktails include Snowed In, candy cane-infused vodka, Godiva chocolate and Bailey’s. $8-$15.
Lastly, families can check out the Ritz-Carlton’s Gingerbread House-Making event, next Saturday, December 17 from 11 a.m.-1 p.m.
Make the most of the holiday season with all the ritzy offerings the Ritz is presenting!
