    Westin St. Francis, a historic luxury hotel in San Francisco has a great treat for all those who have a big sweet tooth. Though this won’t savour your sweet tooth but it will definitely pull you towards it. The Hotel proudly presents the country’s largest sugar palace: 12 feet. Created by Executive Pastry Chef, Jean-Francois Houdreƌ, the rotating palace is displayed in the Landmark Lobby.

    The chef has worked day and night for this masterpiece which was originally made in 2005 and the Hotel makes it larger and spectacular every year. It is on display from 24th November-3rd January and is inspired by the French Chateau from Chef Houdre’s hometown of Bordeaux and weighs more than 1200 pounds. The castle has more than 20 grand circular towers, approximately 30 rooms and illuminated windows surrounded by silver sugar trees, stars and snowflakes made out of pastillage, chocolate balls in brilliant colors and elves constructed out of marzipan. A perfect treat this Christmas!!

    Moreover the Hotel is also offering some great holiday packages this season including discount rates, ice skating on Union Square, Oak Room Holiday afternoon tea and special Christmas Day Dinner and New Year’s Eve Dinner menus.
