See How 3 Luxury Hotels Celebrate Thanksgiving

Posted on November 1, 2017

Thanksgiving kicks off the holiday season on November 23, 2017. Work’s closed, there’s a fun parade on 6th Ave and an epic afternoon football game. It’s a day of forced relaxation and for some of us, family dinners and get-togethers. But for others, especially those of us who live far away from family, we are shaking up the traditional turkey dinner at Mom’s. We have found that it can be a phenomenal opportunity to get away and enjoy some pampering and R&R. Check out these swanky hotels and how they will host a celebration for their guests over the holidays.


The Grand Del Mar

5300 Grand Del Mar Ct,

San Diego, CA 92130


This Mediterranean-style San Diego resort will feature outdoor games, races and fun contests for families from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. They serve decadent dinners at two different restaurants all day long with pre-fixe menus and coursed meals. Option 1 is the casual and relaxed Amaya with hours from 12:30 to 8 p.m. Amaya features a three-course fall tasting menu with dishes like seared sea bass and beef tenderloin. The more upscale second option is the Five-Star Addison, which will be open from 3 to 8 p.m. offering a seven-course meal that includes ricotta gnocchi, salt-roasted turkey and so much more.



The St. Regis Atlanta

88 West Paces Ferry Rd NW

Atlanta, GA 30305

The St. Regis offers an un-paralleled day of holiday programming. On November 23 the beautiful, mezzanine-level Astor Court will be set for the renowned annual Thanksgiving Brunch. The experience is like a luxury home away from home where you can dig into a delicious Thanksgiving dinner buffet. They offer two brunch seatings (11 a.m. and 2 p.m.) and a phenomenal menu of Thanksgiving favorites created by Chef Jordan Barnett. There will be a Bloody Mary and Mimosa bar, live jazz music from the Joe Gransden Six Piece Band and a game day lounge for football fans.




White Elephant Hotel

50 Easton St

Nantucket, MA 02554


This gorgeous waterfront hideaway proves that Nantucket isn’t just a spot for summer sunning. Thanksgiving takes place at White’s Elephant restaurant Brant Point Grill, commonly known as “BPG.” The restaurant has views of Nantucket Harbor and is open from 12 and 8 p.m. Offering cuisine like tenderloin, leg of lamb, harvest vegetables, traditional desserts and, of course, savory turkey with dressing and gravy, you will leave stuffed and nap-ready. This family-friendly event will showcase a Kid’s Corner, which features youth-approved items, such as an ice cream cart and fun games and crafts.

Best Bosses | Here are Real Estate Forum’s picks for Best Bosses in 2023.

The last year has not been easy for the head of a commercial real estate company. Inflation and the Fed’s response, as well as trends that emerged from the pandemic, have clearly had an impact on the industry across all of the sectors. Besides the effect of, say, ongoing remote work on the beleaguered office asset class or the slowing pace of rent increases in multifamily, these executives have also had to navigate an increasingly difficult capital markets environment. I have some bad news for this group: the near-term future doesn’t look any easier. Enter our selection of Best Bosses this year. This year’s picks were made at least in part based on their resiliency and ability to position their companies for future growth, whenever that might occur.
