Hotel Colorado Holiday Lighting Ceremony

One of our most anticipated events each year is our Colorado Christmas, a spectacular and memorable celebration beginning with our lighting ceremony, live entertainment, and a visit from St. Nick himself the weekend after Thanksgiving. This event is free to the public, and it is a perfect way to kick off the holiday season. Over one million lights bring Hotel Colorado to life during this special time. The scent of gingerbread fills the air, beautifully decorated Christmas trees dot the lobby and hallways, and everywhere you turn, you’ll be greeted with festive, seasonal touches.
