The festive Sweet Charity cocktail from Tulio.

Local hotels aren’t just for your visiting Cousin Eddie—you’ll need them this holiday season for meals, in-town getaways, or special events.

• Playing Santa is easier when you shop alone. For $50, drop your children (ages 4 and up) at Hotel 1000 for four hours. For $75, add two cocktails (for you, not the kid) at Boka Kitchen and Bar and free valet parking. Upgrade to the $200 level for all of the above, plus a gift certificate at Spaahh in the downtown hotel. Tickets are online. December 11.

• Spring for a night at the Four Seasons, two cocktails in Art Restaurant and Lounge, and a $200 gift certificate to Nordstrom, all for $505. Through January 31.

The Hunt Club in the Sorrento Hotel will have three-course afternoon and evening meals on Christmas Eve and Day, dishing up prime rib, sweet onion and yam soup, and cherry pie. December 24 and 25.

Tulio next to Hotel Vintage Park throws a traditional Feast of the Seven Fishes on Christmas Eve. It includes mussels, spicy crab spaghetti, calamari, and more seafoody treats. Reservations are encouraged. December 24.

• For the fourth year, Hotel 1000 will be celebrating 12 Days of Comfort, Joy, and Cheer, meaning that the dozen days before Christmas will feature snow outside the hotel and a charity-giving tree inside.

Drink sales and the tree benefit Art With Heart, a local non-profit. December 13–24.

• Through Christmas, the Sorrento Hotel will be serving afternoon tea with pastries and sandwiches in their Fireside Room (also one of our five favorite fireplace bars) Through December 25.

• The Hilton Seattle happens to be right next to the Fifth Avenue Theatre, so they’re offering two tickets to Cinderella with a cozy hotel room for $250, including parking. Through December 31.
