We were greeted with smiles and glasses of lemonade as we arrived. Nick (concierge) couldn't have been more friendly or helpful, explaining the hotel and amenities. Gave us a map and recommended places for us out-of-towners. Free snacks, 24hr warm pool, great suite, free laundry, breakfast incl. already planning a return trip!

Should be considered more of a destination than a bar. It really is an awesome place. Go here at least once, if not once a year.

This is an experience you don't want to miss if "invited". Not just anyone can walk in to the Castle and see the show, have the dinner, be impressed. Make sure and visit the "close up room". Tip well. And dress up! Half the fun in this uber-casual city.

We visited the Magic Castle for their Sunday Brunch as we were travelling with our two year old and that was the only time he was allowed in. The whole place had that Harry Potter feel to it...the brunch buffet was delicious and the shows were brilliant. Without a doubt this is the best attraction Hollywood has to offer.

I was lucky enough to be a guest through a friend I was visiting. All the magicians were phenomenal and so much fun. It is such an intimate setting and I was able to be apart of many of the acts. I had an amazing time from beginning to end, it truly was a magical evening. Just looking throughout the... More

This place goes above and beyond to make your stay 100%. Final hotel in our 3 week USA trip and was the best by far. Rooms good for families and pool & staff get 10/10. Made it really hard to go to the airport and head home. Would love to stay here again.

We were invited by friends who are members and all we could say was WOW! Make sure you get there early to start with some of the shows. There are theaters on many different levels all with amazing performers. The stained glass throughout the castle was amazing and so much artwork to look at, it was endless. Lots of interactive...

We had a wonderful time when we visited in May! The cocktails were yummy and the dinner was amazing!! One of the best meals we had in our three week trip around the USA. The magicians were fantastic and blew me away!! Stay at the Magic Castle Hotel to get access to this members only club!!

We went to The Magic Castle with a small group of people. We had dinner reservations at 9:45, but got to The Magic Castle early so that we could explore and have some drinks. The valets were very friendly and efficient both when we arrived and when we departed. We walked around and watched the individual magicians at various places... More

The shows are here are invariably superb. This was my third visit and I am never disappointed. One caveat is that this is not an inexpensive place to dine. And the food itself is nothing special. But that is not why one comes to this place. The shows themselves are very well produced and choreographed and should leave you guessing.... More
