The 6 Best Hotels for Families in L.A.

1. JW Marriott L.A. LIVE – Downtown

Hotel for families with pool in downtown L.A.
Great hotel close to Crypto Arena for Lakers, Kings, Sparks, and Clippers games. Nice outdoor pool. The Junior King Suite (where we stayed) is huge. Aesthetically it’s almost too much open space but for a family of 4 or 5 it’s perfect.

2. Four Seasons Los Angeles – Beverly Hills

Family-friendly resort in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles.
Great pool, staff, and rooms. Good location for shopping, sightseeing, and museums. Suites are large and can comfortably sleep a family of 4, 5, or 6. Wonderful kid-friendly breakfasts.

3. Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows – Santa Monica

Family Hotel in Santa Monica
Suites and bungalows are great and typically have 1 king and 1 sofa bed. Great outdoor pool. Located in a very fun area close to the beach, pier, and many restaurants. (Note: Santa Monica is LA’s most expensive area and the Fairmont is the best hotel near the beach.)

4. Andaz – West Hollywood

West Hollywood Hotel with Pool.
Nice rooftop pool and good restaurant with kids menu. Great location for families. The Hop-on/Hop-off sightseeing bus stops right outside the door. Suites are gorgeous and sleep families of 4 or 5.

5. Holiday Inn Walk of Fame – Hollywood

Family Hotel in Hollywood
Great cheap/midrange hotel for families. Largish rooms are great value for the LA area. Good location and small outdoor pool (Note: The Queen suites are larger than the King suites.)

6. AKA – Beverly Hills

Hotel for family of 4, 5, or 6 in Los Angeles.In the heart of Beverly Hills and a 5-minute walk to Rodeo Drive. One-bedroom and two-bedroom townhomes and suites have fully equipped kitchens and are fantastic for families. Pet friendly too. The only drawback is that they have a one-week minimum stay.

  1. Universal Studios VIP Passes for Family of 4

    Are the VIP skip-the-line tickets for Universal Studios worth buying?

    1. Santorini Dave The Hotel Expert

      Yes, definitely worth buying if they’re in your budget. There are two types of upgraded tickets available for Universal Studios – Front of the Line Tickets (you almost never wait in line for a ride) and the full VIP Experience (which has skip the line plus a behind the scenes tour and free breakfast and lunch). The best prices for tickets are usually found at the Getyourguide website.

  2. Good Area To Stay in Los Angeles for Family

    We are coming end of January to LA for a week, we have been before, but this time we are coming with our 2 year old son, visiting from the UK. We have no idea where to stay, we want a nice level of luxury, but also a base that is good to travel to the tarpits, the beach, and Disney for one day. Help please!

      There are always trade-offs with where to stay in L.A. and what’s the best location. The Four Seasons is the best luxury hotel for families in the Los Angeles area and only 8 minutes from the tar pits so it’s probably my top recommendation for you. The kids playroom is very well done, nice pool, and an evening camp fire. The Santa Monica pier is 20 minutes away – so not close to the beach, but not too far either. Disneyland is a bit of a trek (40 minutes at best) but since that’s only one day it’s reasonable. (You could also stay in Anaheim for a night or two.)
