Throughout the year, the Sheraton Princess Kaiulani hotel hosts numerous artists, cultural experts, Hawaiian woodworkers and more in their lobby. Every holiday season though, guests are treated to an especially grand display — something that brings in people from all over Waikiki and Oahu, and even attracts the attention of national media.

This is the annual Gingerbread Town(City? Megalopolis?) that Hotel Executive Chef Ralf Bauer and his team assemble every year. This impressive display spans more than 25 feet wide, and showcases replicas of prominent Hawaiian buildings, as well as other buildings from around the world.
