We are parents, too. We think traveling well and traveling with children shouldn’t be mutually exclusive. We have limited vacation time, and we’re not spending our few days of freedom in lousy hotels eating bad food. We know the world is full of wonderful resorts, cool urban escapes and far-flung lodges that can make our time with our kids count. We want it all, and we don’t think it should be so hard to find. So we’re going to share it with you.

Our Stay at LA's Mr. C Hotel

Henley Vazquez

News that Beverly Hills’ hip Mr. C hotel was launching new top-notch kids’ amenities seemed like the perfect excuse for a mom-and-daughter staycation. LA-based writer Jennifer Ashton Ryan and daughter Cora checked-in last week and shared this trip report and review of the hotel. 


“If your next Los Angeles layover allows for an overnight, book Mr. C Beverly Hills, where at check-in guests are greeted with a freshly made Bellini. This summer the boutique hotel launched its Little C program, complete with the Honest Company amenities, cookies and Nutella at turndown, and children’s menus for meals poolside or in the swanky Italian restaurant. Stays should include a customized Espa massage for mom, and dining on pasta recipes conceived at Cipriani’s legendary Venetian outpost. If you have time, ask the concierge about Learn to Surf LA discounts for children.” 

Let Passported book your stay at Mr. C and receive insider perks, including free breakfast for two and a $100 spa credit. Contact our bookings team to find out more.

Basics

  • Tucked away in residential Beverlywood, the 138-room tower stands alone boasting panoramic views of nearby Los Angeles attractions like Beverly Hills and the Hollywood sign.
  • The “C” stands for Cipriani, the famed owner of Venetian outpost Harry’s Bar; now four generations later the family’s Italian food and European hospitality grace the West Coast. 
  • An outdoor pool with a lounge-y vibe welcomes children and classic Cipriani dishes can be served in the swanky restaurant or ordered in-room. 

Bedtime

  • A family of four can squeeze into standard rooms with two double beds, but either of the one-bedroom suites called Mr. C (two bathrooms) or Classic (one bathroom) with two rollaways ($35/night each) in the living room are more comfortable. Cribs are complimentary. 
  • Booking a one-bedroom Mr. C Suite with a guaranteed connecting room is the most comfortable option for a family of four; connecting rooms are not guaranteed when reserving two standard rooms. 
  • At turndown, staff bring milk and cookies with sides of Nutella for Little C guests.

Buts

  • Mr. C is a boutique city hotel that is certainly child friendly, but not child-centered (posh crowd, no kids club). 
  • The trendy outdoor pool area, a corner with vintage board games in the lobby, and a small lawn with a croquet set accommodate children, but among mostly adult travelers.
  • Conveniences like a grocery store and casual restaurants are walking distance, but significant LA attractions are driving distance only. Then again, nobody walks in LA. 

Bests

  • Rather than walk up to a traditional check-in desk, guests upon arrival are directed to the bar for complimentary Bellini cocktails (sans alcohol for the littles). 
  • In-room the Honest Company amenities, Mr. C teddy bears, and kid-size robes make Little C guests feel most comfortable. 
  • Discounts for families to local attractions like Learn to Surf LA and the Santa Monica aquarium are available through the concierge.
