LUXURY TRAVEL: Christmas Decorations

Hotels are all about design these days - so what better places to find the ultimate Christmas Tree. From traditional baubles to teddy bears and designer shoes The Luxury Travel Bible travelled the world (thanks for the lift Rudolph)  to bring you the best decorations and the best trees with five stars on top. Oh, and a few well placed snowballs as well.
Happy Hotel Christmas.

Hundreds of ice blocks hang from the ceiling around a feather tree, with candles and ice blocks scattered in the water at Hôtel de la Paix.  As the ice melts and drips a smoke machine is used to add a mystic feel.
