11. Lotte New York Palace Hotel Tree

Lotte Palace Christmas Tree in NYC

The Lotte New York Hotel Christmas tree is finally unobstructed from scaffolding and glowing in all its glory this year! The tree stands at the center of the hotel’s courtyard which is full of red and gold presents and shining lights. This space is open to the public Wednesday through Sundays. Stepping inside the lobby, you can see another surprising Christmas treet, a gingerbread model of the hotel made out of more than 100 pounds of cookie dough and icing!
