Families looking to visit Los Angeles in the near future should keep these hotels in mind when planning their vacation.


Hilton Santa Monica Hotel & Suites

For those searching for a family getaway in the heart of vibrant Santa Monica, Hilton Santa Monica Hotels & Suites is perfect and one of Los Angeles’ newest lifestyle hotels. With more suites and spacious accommodations, more than any other hotels in the charming coastal city, Hilton Santa Monica serves as a launch pad for adventure and exploration in Los Angeles. The property is a short walk from the beach, the iconic Santa Monica pier, popular shops and dining destinations.


Families looking to catch some California sun can lounge by the property’s recently debuted rooftop pool complete with stylish cabanas or head down to the beach. With its very own marketplace, located in the lobby, guests can enjoy gourmet sandwiches and salads, as well as purchase beach essentials and wellbeing products.


The hotel can help families book experiences at 3DAR Trick Art Museum, an immersive 3-D augmented reality experience as well as complimentary VIP reservations to the Getty Center and Getty Villas.


westdrift Manhattan Beach

Manhattan Beach is nestled in the pocket of Los Angeles known as the South Bay, midway between Malibu and Orange County. This charming coastal enclave, while a bit more laid-back than its northern neighbors of Venice Beach and Santa Monica, has enjoyed a resurgence of new developments in recent years and is now one of the hottest places to dine, shop and stay in style.


Summer never leaves in Manhattan Beach; families can soak up the endless beachy vibes of Southern California and enjoy ample time on the shore all year-long. For family-friendly accommodations, check out westdrift Manhattan Beach – Los Angeles’ flagship Autograph Collection Hotel.


Situated on 26 acres in the South Bay, the westdrift offers spacious guestrooms for families to spread out. Guests can take advantage of the Beach Club concierge service. Families can enjoy the ultimate beach day relaxing on the sand with chairs, umbrellas, towels, water bottles and more. If you are looking for beach activities, guests can enjoy surf lessons or a pickup game of beach volleyball.

The Peninsula Beverly Hills makes staying in a suite even sweeter! Guests who book one of the hotel’s elegant suites are offered complimentary use of a luxury BMW for the length of their stay.

Celebrate the Holidays with Festivities in Wailea, Hawai’i

There is no better place to celebrate the holidays this year than Wailea, Hawai’i. Look to Wailea Beach to witness Santa and his elves emerge from the ocean in a decorated Hawai’ian outrigger canoe stocked full of candy canes, ready to kick off the festivities. Some of Santa’s elves will even surf Hawai’i’s great waves to make their way to shore. The entrance will be nothing short of special as they land on pristine Wailea Beach in front of the Grand Wailea Resort. Kids can meet Santa and take photos with him before he makes his way toward the resort.
