Christmas is all about making memories, and The Hilton Anatole is ready to provide just that. My family looks forward to visiting this hotel in Dallas each year for Christmas, and there’s good reason why. With decorations not to be missed, Christmas at the Anatole has a variety of activities that children of all ages will love.


We stayed at the Anatole over the weekend, which included a trip to Peppermint Park, a fun family movie night, then waking up  to Breakfast with Santa! 


Peppermint Park is THE place to get the best holiday experience.  It includes a variety of shows, including a Holiday Marionette show, a penguin show,  an escape room, a dance off, a giant snow globe, putt-putt golf and more!  



My children love the puppets in the marionette show, but they are still talking about the giant snow globe and escape room days later!  We also enjoyed dancing with the reindeer, stuffing our own bear, decorating cookies and roasting marshmallows on the fire!


Breakfast with Santa at the Anatole is my favorite Christmas event in Dallas! The breakfast includes a buffet of eggs, pancakes, bacon, pastries, cereal and so much more. 


While guests are eating, Santa and Mrs. Claus walk around, greeting children at tables, posing for pictures and noting the nice (or naughty) list.  The two then gather around the front of the crowd to read a story to the children!  It’s magical and unforgettable!

    My favorite Christmas memory was waking up to specifically see what Santa put in my stocking. My stocking was always filled with the best and most personal goodies.

    I would take my husband and two kiddos! It is our daughters very first Christmas and I can’t wait to see what she thinks about Santa and all things Christmas!

    Favorite Christmas memory would be the year that we had our son, we spent so much time on gifts for him and he could care less about any of it! He refused to open a single gift and wanted to go play instead!!!! It was our favorite because it reminded me the most important thing about Christmas is not gifts or wrapping paper but being together and surrounded by those you love!!!!!!

    Favorite Christmas memories….a tie between the year I got a stuffed skunk when I was little, my first married Christmas and decorating our own tree, my son’s 1st Christmas and all the Christmases since then with both of my kids. Each Christmas with them is a wonderful memory made.

    Favorite memory is decorating the Christmas tree. Looking at all the ornaments we had made in the past (or that year) and the ornaments we had brought home from traveling.

  16. I would take my husband, daughter, my niece and her parents. My kiddos are grown, but I’m loving seeing things through the eyes of a kiddo again!

  17. Tammy vasquez Reply

    Dec 19th! I would surprise and take my family. It has been a rough year for my husband and our family. I would love to let my kids be kids and try to enjoy our first Christmas without “Grandma”.

  18. Terry Nriggs Reply

    I would take my wife and kids anytime over Christmas break.

    The lentz family could go on December 21-23 or that first week after Christmas. ?

  24. I would take my Hubby and both of my beautiful kiddos! They would love it!

  25. My favorite Christmas memory (technically post Christmas) was stepping off the plane after returning post deployment from Iraq to Germany and then on home stateside a few weeks later and having a wonderful belated Christmas with my Mom, Dad, and Brother who had waited for my return to celebrate. It was wonderful 🙂

  26. Following you on Pinterest too!! (Also we are available ANY of those days!!)
