A pleasant surprise, for sure as normally I find 5 star ratings on hotels to often fall short. But not in this case. We were greeted warmly by Nick and Kevin, who explained how everything worked. Traveling with two teens, they found the greeting humorous and lively so they enjoyed it. My youngest especially enjoyed it when Nick brought out... More

After flying 12 hours from Australia, we were hoping to get straight into our hotel room. After being greeted with free punch at the door the lady at the front desk told us our room wouldn't be ready for a couple of hours. Instead of just leaving us she organised a place for us to get changed, a table by... More

We stayed at the Magic Castle Hotel as a result of the positive reviews on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed! This is NOT a Five Star hotel. If you want a business centre, gym, and grandiose foyer with obsequious staff, stay somewhere else. The two-bedroom poolside suite (with full kitchen) was perfect for our needs. It was clean, spacious... More

We stayed here in July with our 2 kids ages 10 and 5 for 3 nights at the end of a month long holiday staying at 6 different hotels, and what can I say...this place was the best accommodation of all, actually the best we have ever stayed in anywhere. Right from word go we were made to feel very... More

We stayed here in July and had a great time! We've stayed in many 5 star hotels across the world and I can honestly say that the customer service at The Magic Hotel was on parr, and exceeded most of them. Due to driving from Las Vegas we arrived at the hotel at 11:00am, much earlier than the 3:00pm check... More

We (family of 4 - Mum, Dad, Mr 10, Miss 6) stayed here for 3 nights in June 2014, after a fairly generic stay in Anaheim (as a hotel customer by numbers). As soon as we arrived, the difference in attitude was a welcome relief - the kids were immediately engaged with Nick at the front desk, who probably should... More

Ok, I am a bit of a snob when it comes to accommodation but that said I will try anything at least once so I can make an informed decision. I had read so many reviews about this property so was very keen to check it out. The location in Hollywood is perfect - so close to everything and as... More
