Gingerbread House

For more than a century, Fairmont San Francisco has enchanted guests with holiday festivities and exuberant ambiance. This season, Fairmont’s elves are once again working overtime to create a dazzling, unparalleled winter display. Starting on Saturday, November 30, 2019, the hotel transforms into one of the world’s most beloved holiday destinations, where moments are turned into cherished memories. Fairmont San Francisco’s two-story, life-sized Gingerbread House in the hotel’s grand lobby has become a must-see attraction for guests from near and far.

Fairmont San Francisco’s talented culinary and engineering teams have joined forces to meticulously plan construction of this year’s enormous Gingerbread House, which will be even larger than last year’s stunning, two-story-high Victorian! Once complete, the impressive, edible abode will stand more than 25 feet high, 35 feet wide and 10.5 feet deep and will feature more than 6,000 house-made gingerbread bricks (largest bricks to date), 1,650 pounds of candy and 3,300 pounds of royal icing. The gingerbread house’s railroad track also delights guests of all ages, who happily gaze upon this favorite feature.

Each year, the Gingerbread House takes center stage and fills the halls with its sweet aroma, but the property’s 23-foot tall Christmas tree in the main lobby is also impressive in its own right.

*During the holiday season, overnight guests of Fairmont San Francisco can enjoy guaranteed access to the majestic, two-story Gingerbread House and giant Christmas tree in the Lobby. Due to the popularity of the holiday display, public hours will be limited at the discretion of the hotel.  

Cirque Bar


Cirque Bar at Fairmont San Francisco was the first bar to open in the city following the repeal of prohibition. This winter, the bar will ceremoniously open its doors to feature festive holiday décor and cocktails. Join us!
