This holiday season, JW Marriott Los Angeles L.A. LIVE unveils festive new programming launched on Friday, November 27 and continuing through New Year’s Day. Adjacent to the LA Kings Holiday Ice Skating Rink, the downtown Los Angeles hotel offers locals and visitors of all ages a selection of opportunities to embrace new holiday traditions with loved ones. Activations include Mrs. Claus’ life-size gingerbread house; a “Holly Jolly Day” filled with ice skating and a hot chocolate and sweets station, and a meet-and-greet with characters from DreamWorks Animation’s Kung Fu Panda 3; and a stress-free “Holiday Party in a Box” package, complete with all the trimmings for holiday merry making outside the home.

“From time-honored traditions to activities that encourage time spent with new friends, we’ve got something for everyone under our roof,” says Javier Cano, Vice President and Market General Manager of JW Marriott Los Angeles L.A. LIVE. “It’s only fitting for a hotel in the heart of Los Angeles to be the ultimate destination for holiday cheer.”

From November 30 through December 31, guests can tour Mrs. Claus’ life-size gingerbread house comprised of 1,300 lbs. of the spiced cookie dough and furnished entirely out of sweet confections, including sugar picture frames and milk chocolate Santas. Santa makes a special appearance on Saturday, December 19, from 1-5 p.m. and is available for photos inside the gingerbread house.

On Saturday, December 19, from 1-4 p.m., The Mixing Room hosts a “Holly Jolly Day,” beginning with exclusive access to LA LIVE’s annual ice skating rink from 1-2:30 p.m., followed by a meet-and-greet with characters from the upcoming DreamWorks Animation’s  movie Kung Fu Panda 3. The festivities continue with a sweets station featuring gourmet lollipops and cupcakes and a hot chocolate laboratory where guests can mix-and-match seasonal ingredients for a custom cup of cocoa. Tickets are available for purchase online ($12 for children under 12 years and $20 for adults; entry without the ice skating portion is $5 for children and $10 for adults). Tickets will be available at the door for an additional $3 per ticket.

From November 27 through December 29, The Mixing Room also offers its “Holiday in a Box” package, which provides all the necessary elements to throw a festive holiday celebration for up to 10 guests. Components include seasonal libations and small bites, photo props including Santa hats and reindeer antlers, festive take-home party favors such as house-made hot cocoa packets, and a holiday tree for spirited décor. Starting at $500, the “Holiday in a Box” party can be enjoyed inside The Mixing Room where the lounge staff will set up guests’ holiday event prior to arrival. The first five groups to book the package will receive complimentary tickets to the LA LIVE ice rink; guests may book a package by emailing JWLArestaurants@marriott.com.
