You can't beat this place. Location is tops. Service is outstanding. The free extras: snacks, breakfast, pool towels...makes a huge difference when a place doesn't Nickel and dime you. We stayed in a 2 bedroom suite in the annex. The room itself was great, if not a bit dated. They keep it clean and well stocked however. Was a converted... More

My wife and I stayed at the Magic Castle Hotel for four nights and cannot express how much we enjoyed our stay. From check in to check out, their customer service was incredible. We arrived early and were happy to learn that our room was ready for check in. Then within five minutes after getting into our room, we were... More

Stayed here last year, staying again Feb next year. Perfect location, staff were very friendly and accommodating. Perfect place to recharge the batteries after a 14hr flight. Waking up in the middle of the night for snacks was another plus. Looking forward to the next trip with what will be our 6 month old.

Love the staff who made my daughter's birthday weekend extremely memorable with a giant stuffed animal, a delicious birthday cake, and a personalized card from the hotel. Also love the free snacks, DVD's and the morning coffee. We had to book a two bedroom "suite" as there were no other rooms left. (This was a month in advance.) I don't... More

Hi Mari V, Of course I'm happy that we made your daughter's birthday memorable! We're glad she like the stuffed animal and cake we put in the room. I'm sorry to hear that your night with us wasn't to your satisfaction with regard to your suite. I would really love a chance to talk with your directly if you don't... More

We had the pleasure of visiting and staying at the Magic Castle Hotel twice over the last two weeks. From the moment you walk through the door, it's all about the customer service. I almost hesitate to praise the employees so heavily out of fear that the Ritz-Carlton may come and poach them! Anyway, Monica greeted us at the front... More

Stayed at the magic castle hotel for a second time last week and found it to be every bit as comfortable and as accommodating as our first wonderful visit. Staff could not be nicer of more helpful. Great location depending on where you need to be in the city. Obviously great access to the actual Magic Castle! Kids love the... More

We stayed at this hotel for four nights in early March and I was so very disappointed. The reviews I read inspired me to book this hotel but it did not even vaguely live up to my expectations. To begin with we we're put into a room right at the back which was very dated, out of sight out of... More

Hi JohnJosh15, I was so sorry to read how dissatisfied you were with the hotel. It sounds like there were definitely some areas in which we dropped the ball. With regard to the croissants being cold. They are baked fresh from Susina Bakery every morning and delivered to us soon after. By the time breakfast starts, they are usually at... More

From the moment of check in all our needs were met. We were able to check in early and received a glass of fruit drink. Room was very comfortable , clean and had enough space for a family of four. Added extras such as unlimited snacks, drinks, Popsicle hotline and complimentary clothes washing makes this an outstanding hotel choice and... More

Hi Alison, I'm so happy you enjoyed your stay with us! Thank you so much for taking the time to write about it. Of course it makes me very happy to know that you had fun with our Popsicle Hotline and our complimentary laundry service. Why should you have to do your own laundry while on vacation??? You shouldn't!! As... More
