Hotels around San Diego are inviting people to share the holiday spirit by hosting events from now until the end of the year. From cozy nights with hot toddies to special menus and hotel deals, a few of San Diego’s finest has some December fun in store.

If you’re headed downtown, stop by the W San Diego for its Fire & Ice winter program on the Rooftop Bar. Every Thursday-Saturday from 6 p.m. to close (all the way through New Year’s), guests can experience their very own white winter wonderland, one part of the holiday season that San Diego doesn’t see. Guests can order hot toddies and curl up next to the fire and snack on s’mores.

The W San Diego will also be hosting Flicks by the Fire movie nights complete with homemade flavored popcorn, butterscotch coffee, and s’mores bites. Specialty pumpkin martinis, blueberry hot toddies, and brown bag bottle specials are available from 8-11 p.m. Upcoming movie showings are “Bad Santa” on December 23rd and “The Ref” on December 30th.

THE US GRANT is hosting its traditional Holiday Tea on both December 14th and December 21st from 1-3 p.m. Guests can dive into a menu of sweet and savory treats complete with kid-friendly dishes and loose leaf teas courtesy of Executive Chef Mark Kropczynski. This year, the hotel is inviting guests to bring new gifts for children to donate to their annual toy drive charity - Promises2Kids Polinsky Children’s Center.
