Whether you’re staying on Rodeo Drive or Ocean Avenue, “the concierge is your best friend.” This especially holds true when you are traveling with pint-sized jet-setters in L.A. Glitz, glam, and star sightings are around every corner and a few of LA’s premiere hotels offer very special packages that are customized to make your mini-superstars feel like Hollywood royalty. The concierge can create amazing experiences your tiny jet-setter will never forget.
Traveling with children does not always have to be all about theme parks and roller coaster rides. While the concierge team at these luxury L.A. properties can arrange day trips to local attractions upon request, each hotel has developed very special one-of-a-kind programs right on site for children during their stay. From child-size robes and slippers to teddy bears and chocolate chip cookies upon arrival, each resort will make mini-celeb out of your children before you know it.
