Holiday revelers will be greeted with the most exciting “gift” to the city, including the dramatically-lit Embarcadero Center where each of five buildings is outlined in twinkling lights. At the center of this Waterfront holiday destination, Embarcadero Center features an outdoor ice skating rink as well as over 100 retail stores and restaurants (embarcaderocenter.com) each of which offers their own brand of cheer. The neighboring Hyatt Regency San Francisco is a virtual, over-sized “snow globe” promising daily snowfall in its Guinness Book of World Records largest lobby.
