The world is officially in "Countdown to Christmas" mode and now, so are we. Every day until Christmas we'll be featuring a hotel that's in a holiday mood--whether it be with gigantic gingerbread houses, over-the-top Christmas decorations, thrilling lighting displays and best of all, Santa appearances. But of course, any hotel can assemble a fake tree, put on some lights and declare themselves "festive." Which is why we're looking at hotels that are really going ALL OUT. Know of a hotel that's super excited for Christmas? Let us know!

Let’s face it: At the beginning of the Christmas season, we have warm, fuzzy thoughts of snuggling in front of the fire with a hot toddy in hand and "A Charlie Brown Christmas" on the telly. Next thing you know, we’re fighting with crowds in malls, dragging the Christmas tree through the damn door, and making grocery lists for the three full days it’ll take to make all those holiday family feasts. Where did that warm, all-over glow go?

The Berkeley Hotel in London’s Knightsbridge is doing all they can to bring that fleeting festive feeling back with their rooftop Winter Cinema.

Known as a happening rooftop terrace overlooking Hyde Park in the summer, the hotel’s Health Club & Spa has transformed the space into a pine-filled forest with twinkly lights, rustic-chic wooden chalets built for two and a cinema screen more than large enough to accommodate Jimmy Stewart’s face.

We know where we'll be next Monday night—and it won't be at home spying on our old man neighbor. Instead, we'll be at Peninsula New York, watching a film about neighbors getting spied on.

Amelie, one of our all-time favorites, will be shown as part of a new outdoor French cinema series taking place at Salon De Ning's West Terrace.

Meaning, yes, a French-themed film screening at a Chinese-influenced bar in the middle of New York City. But hey—a view's a view! We happened to visit the hotel's sun terrace, two floor below, last fall, and have to admit, we liked what we saw.

Crosby Street Hotel Got Taken Over By the Mad Men Premiere (And No, We Weren't Invited Either)

Believe it or not, the Crosby Street Hotel's screening room once in a while gets used for something other than weekly Sunday night film club gatherings. Like on Monday night, when a glitzier-than-thou crowd showed up for the season premiere of Mad Men, which the rest of us won't get to watch for another four days.

This now brings our itinerary of stops on the unofficial Man Men Worldwide Hotel Tour to a grand total of five! So far, we've counted Roosevelt New York (where Don Draper lives in Season 2), The Belvedere Hotel in Baltimare and the Millenium Biltmore in LA (the show filmed inside both hotels), Soho Hotel (where Jon Hamm got a little racy during a recent newspaper interview), and now, the Crosby Street Hotel.
