Lace Up Some Skates at The Rink in Downtown Burbank

Discover the premier destination for this traditional winter weather activity in the heart of Downtown Burbank!

When visiting the Golden State during the holiday season, the temperate weather and sunny skies may make it seem impossible to enjoy any true ‘winter wonderland’ style of festivities. If you want to build a snowman, you’re probably still out of luck! But from December 13 through January 6, another classic colder climate activity, taking place right in Downtown Burbank, will be sure to get you in the holiday spirit!

The Rink in Downtown BurbankTake a trip to City Hall, strap on some blades, and get ready for some outdoor ice skating at The Rink in Downtown Burbank! From 10:00AM for 10:00PM daily, this annual holiday tradition brings a conventional winter pastime right to the heart of our beloved city. Even as the temps soar, take to the ice and show off on your skates. Even the smallest of children will find themselves skating in style as a rentable skate aid in the adorable form of “Bobby the Seal” will keep them upright (for the most part)! For the older set who aren’t the most surefooted, show up early on Saturday mornings for some skate lessons before your 90-minute session begins! General admission tickets are $10 per person (with a supplemental fee of $6 for a skate rental and $8 for the skating aid).

As the hours are extended on Friday and Saturday to 11:30PM, consider making it a true night on the town by booking a room with us at the Los Angeles Marriott Burbank Airport Hotel. Located minutes away from The Rink, our spacious accommodations and variety of enjoyable amenities will provide you with the perfect place to unwind from your seasonal skating in both comfort and style!

Festive Fun Is at Your Fingertips at Stevie Wonder’s House Full of Toys Benefit Concert

Holiday cheer will be signed, sealed, delivered at this 22nd Annual holiday event at the Staples Center this December.

Tell all of your part-time lovers. Call up the sunshine of your life (and no, not just to say “I love you”). The holiday season is almost upon us and with it brings the 22nd Annual Stevie Wonder’s House Full Of Toys Benefit Concert, one of the most beloved benefit concert events to hit Los Angeles every December. This year – taking place at the iconic Staples Center on Sunday, December 9th – “Little Stevie” is promising a “Song Party” that is a true celebration of life, love, and music! Those three attributes perfectly encapsulate this icon’s decade spanning career and will be surely on full display during his beloved benefit.

“Music is a world within itself with a language we all understand” 

22nd Annual Stevie Wonder’s House Full Of Toys Benefit ConcertThe “Sir Duke” maestro and his timeless lyrics have touched the hearts and souls of generations. Getting a chance to see him live, even now at 68-years-young, is truly can’t miss. Yet what makes this concert even more memorable is its philanthropic heart, a testament to the character and charitable soul of this living legend. In support of his own non-profit We Are You Foundation, which benefits children, people with disabilities, and families in need, attendees are encouraged to participate in the concert’s toy drive by bringing an unwrapped gift to the show. While Stevie gives you the gift of his soulful melodies, you will bring joy to someone less fortunate during such a festive time of the year.

Don’t be Uptight!

Everything is alright when you end your soulful trip through Stevie’s songbook with a relaxing evening in the luxurious accommodations of the Los Angeles Marriott Burbank Airport Hotel. Located minutes away from the iconic Downtown LA venue, our comfortable, well-appointed guest rooms provide the perfect home-away-from-home for any Staples Center event.
