Our party of 8 (including 3 kids) from Australia occupied 3 rooms over 2 nights when we first landed in LA. Rooms were lovely and well equipped. BUT it's the service that makes this hotel so special. From the minute we walked in and were greeted with glasses of sparkling lemonade the staff cannot do enough to help you and... More

The free snacks, wifi, drinks, laundry, breakfast and access to the magic castle club meant this was a hotel experience like no other.We stayed in... More

Stayed here with my family summer 2013. Walking distance to Hollywood attractions but off the noise so the perfect combination. The service was beyond great. Breakfast was basic thou but I made up for it by cooking in my room. Will definitely be staying here again when back in Hollywood.

We stayed at several hotels during our Los Angeles to San Francisco Trip and this one was by far our favorite. It may not have been as sophisticated as the JW Marriott we stayed at in SF but the outstanding customer service made up for any of that. The rooms were very large (had a full kitchen), clean, and comfortable.... More

Our room had 2 double beds with seperate lounge area, dining table and kitchen, which gave us the chance to spread out and relax upon our... More

The hotel is really easy to find and very close to the centre of Hollywood. I had read the car parking was a little tight but... More

We stayed here for 5 nights and loved every minute. At checking Mallory at front desk was wonderful and very friendly. Organised some free snacks for us and a dvd and provided us tips on what to do in Hollywood. All staff at the hotel are easy going and happy to give you whatever assistance you need.

My partner and I stayed at the Magic Castle Hotel for two nights in August. Having recently experienced poor customer service at another hotel, the Magic Castle was a breath of fresh air. We were greeted by Kevin who spent at least 15 minutes making us feel very welcome. He explained everything to us telling us about the hotel, parking... More
