Christmas Cheer at the Willard

For that “Eloise at the Plaza” feel during the holidays, check out the lavishly decorated lobby of the beaux arts Willard Intercontinental Hotel.  Amping up the ‘tis-the-season-to-be-jolly vibe are free holiday concerts from 5:30 to 7:30 through Dec. 22 (every night but the 21st) by such ensembles as the Children’s Chorus of Washington and the Cantante Chamber singers of Maryland. A gingerbread house, glittering tree, and hot spiced cider, holiday cookies, and gingerbread add to the general merriment. Eloise would most certainly approve.
