From fine food to immersive experiences, Fairmont Hotel Vancouver provides safe, festive ways to celebrate the season

The holidays in British Columbia are destined to look a little different this year but Fairmont Hotel Vancouver has you covered for small yet joyful celebrations. We won’t be gathering as usual, but many of us will be craving a little extra comfort and holiday cheer. Fairmont Hotel Vancouver offers everything you need to enjoy a decadent meal to-go, experience an inspiring holiday display in the comfort of your own home, or set the stage for a sparkling photo opportunity.

Here are some unique and thoughtful ways to treat yourself this season…

Keep it simple with exquisite meals-to-go

After an unprecedented year full of challenges, why not make your holiday meal as easy as possible? Notch8 has added even more prepared meal options, from the popular Fraser Valley turkey to-go to the mouth-watering prime rib dinner or succulent ham dinner. Show-stopping sides include Brussels sprouts with pancetta, Yorkshire pudding, honey thyme glazed carrots, chestnut and sausage bread stuffing, almond cherry clafouti and more. With customizable serving sizes (for groups of four to six) and extended pick up times from December 18th to 25th, it’s never been easier to serve up a picture perfect meal. All you need to do is order, pick-up and re-heat your meal at home. Don’t forget to plan your elegant New Year’s Eve as well. Decadent canapé kits (think lobster profiterole, caviar and more) and grazing boards (artisanal cheeses, charcuterie and more) are available for pick-up between December 30th and 31st, and are sure to elevate any New Year’s celebration.

Take a virtual stroll through the Festival of Trees

It’s simple to take in the beauty of Fairmont Hotel Vancouver’s Festival of Trees while keeping a safe and comfortable distance. Snuggle in and take a virtual tour of the hotel’s display of dazzling trees decorated in a variety of unique themes by esteemed sponsors. Don’t forget to vote for your favourite tree and donate five dollars by text message for a chance to win a luxurious two-night stay at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver, with breakfast included. In support of the B.C. Children’s Hospital Foundation, the Festival of Trees is bound to ignite the holiday spirit in each and every one of us.
