Montage Beverly Hills knows how to celebrate, hosting a number of holiday events that really get the kids involved. When Easter rolls around, children will be busy with cookie decorating, face painting, balloon animals and, of course, egg hunts and visits with the Easter Bunny. Four-Star Scarpetta offers an Easter brunch, and there’s even a Mad Hatter-style tea party with mystery sweets and teas.
For Christmas, the Five-Star hotel revels in the season for 12 whole days, with activities like Santa’s workshop, where you can make gingerbread houses and pottery, or Christmas Eve story time with Santa, who will read The Night Before Christmas to your child, share some milk and cookies, and then tuck him into bed. Scarpetta offers a traditional three- or five-course Christmas Eve dinner, and there’s a 12-station Christmas Day buffet in the ballroom accompanied by live music (it does the same setup for Thanksgiving). Each night of Hanukkah, the Beverly Hills hotel lights another candle on its menorah. On New Year’s Eve there are events for the whole family: Little ones can partake in arts and crafts, video games, karaoke and a candy buffet (watch out for that last one) in a ballroom, while you enjoy live music, dancing and plenty of champagne in another ballroom. The next morning, visit the New Year’s Day brunch for cooking demonstrations and a Bloody Mary bar.
