The hotel created a great experience for our family. The location is awesome ... Right in the heart of Hollywood with great access to all the "spots". The desk staff were fantastic at checking us in and then continuing to check on us during our stay. The team truly cared about the guest experience. We'll be staying here again on... More

I've been planning to stay at this hotel for years and finally did this summer. All of the reviews are spot on regarding the friendliness of the staff. Just pulling into the front drive, a sweet young lady smiled and waved at me. I was welcomed with sparkling lemonade, which was a lovely touch. Everyone I encountered from there on... More

Whether you're a fan of the Magical Arts or not, if you want to escape from the dreary uniformity of modern hotels, the Magic Castle Hotel is the hidden Ace in the pack. No restaurants, bars, meeting rooms or stuffy upselling staff. This place is like a haven in the somewhat sleazy circus that is Hollywood. Uber friendly staff, ultra... More

This is the best hotel I have ever stayed at. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left we felt so at home. Our room was fantastic, spacious and clean. The welcome pack, to the daily newspaper, to the turn down service every night, the complimentary breakfast (complete with Vegemite for us Aussies) and of course the kids... More

We were very well received when we arrived. Almost to the point we considered extending our stay. The room was huge with separate living room, dining area, kitchen and bedroom. They are very excited to have you and super friendly. Free snacks and drinks are always available. Parking was not badly priced and you can come and go as needed.... More

The Magic Castle was a great location, it was clean, all the staff were very friendly and helpful especially Nick, Kevin and Bree who helped up select and book many tours. The hotel provided us a fantastic breakfast everyday and many snacks and drinks for the children, they even do your laundry. If you are going to LA with kids... More

The Magic Castle Hotel has the most amazing staff in the world. The hotel itself is charming and very, very comfortable. The propert was an apartment complex that was converted to a hotel, so the rooms are large; many with kitchens and separate bedrooms. But the true beauty of this property is the staff and management. They greet you and... More

This was our first hotel stop coming from Australia to America. The staff made us feel very welcomed & very comfortable. The staff helped us out by showing us the tours that they would recommend aswell as just helping us out with any questions we had. The rooms were greatly sized and presented. The free Wi-Fi was a great bonus.... More
