From a fairy tale Gingerbread Village that will light up the Lobby to a full lineup of festive events, Four Seasons Hotel Austin offers a veritable winter wonderland for travellers looking to enjoy the capital city’s holiday charms.
And with special seasonal rates starting at USD 399 per night between November 18, 2016 and January 7, 2017, there’s never been a better time to visit. Below are just a few of the special offerings and dining events taking place at the Hotel in the coming months:
Thanksgiving Day Buffet – Synonymous with food and family, Thanksgiving at Four Seasons Hotel Austin is an experience visitors of all ages will enjoy – and not just because someone else handles the clean-up! Executive Chef Elmar Prambs and his team outdo themselves each year with a buffet spread that incorporates traditional favourites along with holiday fare.
Teddy Bear Teas in the Lobby Lounge – Traditional tea service, caroling and a fireside reading of ’Twas the Night Before Christmas by Santa make the Hotel’s Teddy Bear Teas in the Lobby Lounge a popular activity year after year. Children attending a Teddy Bear Tea are asked to bring a new, unwrapped teddy bear as a donation for Dell Children’s Hospital.
Gingerbread Village Open Houses – A beloved tradition, the Hotel’s annual Open Houses officially kick-off the holiday season by inviting locals and visitors to ooh and aah over the Gingerbread Village in the Lobby, all while enjoying complimentary hot apple cider and festive cookies. The talented pastry chefs who created the houses – along with special guest Santa – will also be on hand for photo opportunities and to answer questions about this year’s “Fairy Tales”-themed Village, which will be on display from November 21 through December 25, 2016.
Christmas Day Buffet – Already the most wonderful time of the year, Christmas is even more memorable when enjoyed at Austin’s Four Seasons. TRIO and Ballroom guests will feast on more than 80 dishes prepared by the Hotel’s award-winning culinary team, with live piano music adding to the festive ambiance in the Ballroom.
