WaterWorld® at Universal Studios Hollywood
Universal Studios Hollywood
A visit to Hollywood's most popular theme park is a must on any LA family vacation. Lucky for you, Universal Studios Hollywood is located just a mere 3 mile away from Loews Hollywood Hotel.

With something to offer guests of all ages, it makes for an all-around day of fun for the whole family.
A classic pairing from our favorite retro diner, Mel's Drive In
When energy levels begin to dwindle, head just down the street from Loews Hollywood Hotel to Mel's Drive-In, located on the famous corner of Hollywood & Highland. Walk into this iconic local diner and your family will be transported back in time to the golden days of Tinseltown. Slide into a plastic green booth and you'll be greeted with classic diner fare like hamburgers, patty melts, BLTs and onion rings. Add a little jolt of sugar to power through the rest of your day with a cold malted milkshake or root beer float.
Hollywood's El Capitan Theatre
El Capitan Theatre
Take a break from our nearly-eternal LA sunshine and beat the heat while you take in a movie at Disney's El Capitan Theatre. This theater is a staple on Hollywood Boulevard, and home to Disney's movie premieres — but when it's not hosting the latest family blockbuster you can enjoy a unique movie-going experience. Be sure to get your tickets ahead of time and arrive early to experience the special pre-show entertainment featuring a 4/37 Wurlitzer organ. On select Thursdays, the theatre features a classic Disney film for #ThrowbackThursday.
Hollywood & Highland
Hollywood & Highland
Located adjacent to Loews Hollywood Hotel, the Hollywood & Highland Shopping Center is the perfect place to take in the views of the striking Babylon Court. This three-story courtyard features a to-scale replica from the set of the 1916 film Intolerance, with its massive stone arch and giant elephant statues — which have become a visual landmark in Hollywood. Pose for photos in this unique setting and then wander the mall to visit some of your favorite stores, enjoy a quick snack, and pick up a souvenir to commemorate your family trip.
Loews Hollywood Rooftop Pool
Cool off and relax from a long day of LA sightseeing on our 5th floor rooftop pool at Loews Hollywood. Soak up the West Coast sun while the kids splash and play or take up a ping-pong tournament. Oh, and did we mention you can even see the Hollywood Sign from the pool? The perfect way to recharge and take in a sunny Hollywood day without ever having to leave the hotel!
