Starting late November until January, we transform our halls into a forest of creative and beautifully decorated trees for the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation’s 23rd Annual Festival of Trees. Our own grand tree will once again take centre stage in the reception lobby measuring an amazing 23ft tall and covered in sparkling lights for all to enjoy.
Sit by the fire and indulge in the Seasonal Spice buffet in The Bengal Lounge, treat your taste buds with the specially created Festive Afternoon Tea and enjoy a delicious traditional Christmas dinner in The Empress Room. Our holiday wonderland would not be complete without an annual Christmas Eve visit from Mrs. Claus for storytelling and carol sing-along. Be sure to toast to the New Year with us in the elegant Crystal Ballroom at our New Year's Eve Gala Buffet and Dance.
Our Fairmont Empress family looks forward to enjoying the 2014 holiday season with you and yours!
