These holiday hotels have decked their halls with boughs of holly (fa-la-la-la-la la-la-la-la).

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Those city sidewalks and busy sidewalks are dressed in holiday style. Somewhere, chestnuts are roasting on an open fire. It’s also that time of year when the world falls in love with the idea of just slipping out the back door for some peace and quiet. Tis true, we'll admit, that as the hustle and bustle cranks up and the in-laws start to arrive, we sometimes reconsider that whole please-come-home-for-Christmas routine.

Instead, we dream of somewhere with frosted window panes and candles gleaming inside. We wish for winter wonderlands and lovely weather for a sleigh ride together. If this is you, hoping for a last-minute Christmas getaway (for yourself — or for your kith and kin), we've rounded up a few of our favorite festive holiday hotels in the West to hang your hat — er, stocking — this season.
