This May Be Santa’s Favorite Ice Rink in DC

iceskatingBecause the city can never have too many winter wonderlands.

Fairmont Washington, D.C., Georgetown just announced the debut of its outdoor skating rink.  Beginning on Friday, November 24th, the hotel’s interior courtyard will be the location of your latest ice-scapades.

Santa’s own hotel suite overlooks the rink, which you’ll find nestled among twinkling lights and toasty fire pits.  After you’ve laced up your skates, look for him to appear on his balcony to send some cheer to those spinning on the ice*.

Whether skating or spectating, a hot chocolate menu and other seasonal goodies can be ordered to enjoy around the fire pits.

Fairmont’s ice skating rink will be open to the public every Monday through Friday from 2:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on Saturday and Sunday from 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.  Ice skating is $5 per hour and includes a pair of rental skates (based on a first come first serve basis).

*Environmentally friendly, the rink is engineered materials that do not require water or energy to keep it cold.
