The Residence Inn and SpringHill Suites by Marriott in Prescott will continue their tradition this December of offering free holiday festivities open to the public.
SpringHill Suites will have Santa and Mrs. Claus on Saturday and Sunday mornings from Thanksgiving weekend through Dec. 23 for stories, songs and photo opportunities. On Saturday and Sunday afternoons there will be a complimentary hot cocoa bar in the lobby loaded with a selection of cocoa toppings and fun treats.
For the Acker Musical Showcase on Friday, Dec. 7, the American Lutheran Handbell Choir will be back this year in the SpringHill Suites lobby performing beautiful holiday sounds with bells and chimes. To round out the experience, you can enjoy complimentary snacks, hot cider and Gluehwein – a traditional German warm spiced red wine.
Residence Inn by Marriott will have Santa and Mrs. Claus make appearances in the afternoons on those same weekends from Thanksgiving through Dec. 23 and an afternoon hot chocolate bar for everyone to enjoy. Bring a camera and have your little ones bring their Christmas wish list to share with Santa Claus.
For more details and exact times for these festivities, call the hotels direct or check their Facebook pages beginning Thanksgiving weekend.
