This holiday season, The Ritz-Carlton Los Angeles and JW Marriott have special events and offerings for guests wanting to celebrate the season in style. From immersive dining experiences to spa offerings, there is something for everyone.


The Ritz-Carlton Los Angeles

For the month of December, The Ritz-Carlton Los Angeles is hosting a nightly immersive dining experience Thursday–Sunday at 7 p.m. The theatrical dining experience features Le Petit Chef on the hotel’s 24th floor. Reservations to this unique event can be found here.


The hotel will also feature holiday spa offerings. Enjoy a Bourbon Bubbler pedicure, Vanilla Bourbon facial or a peppermint Hot Chocolate Body wrap. Each treatment is sure to get guests into the holiday spirit.


JW Marriott Los Angeles L.A. LIVE

In addition to similar holiday spa offerings found at The Ritz-Carlton Los Angeles, the JW Marriott Los Angeles L.A. LIVE includes events of its own like the L.A. Kings Holiday Ice. Open until Jan. 7, 2022, Los Angeles’ largest outdoor ice rink sits behind the hotel and allows guests to enjoy skating the rink while taking in the massive Christmas tree and LED screen light shows.


On Christmas Day, the hotel will offer its Christmas Day Menu at Savoca, the hotel’s on-site restaurant. Inspired by Chef Nathaniel Marcus’ time cooking in Savoca, Sicily, the menu will use Sicilian influences for guests to enjoy a unique Christmas meal. The menu will also include two Christmas roast options: the rack of lamb or the vegetarian Chateaubriand. Both can be finished with a gingerbread crème brûlée.
