We actually didn’t travel, as NY and California are both quarantined and we had to cancel our reservation, but we just love the Magic Castle Hotel. The location couldn’t be better... you can walk to several major Hollywood sites and the rooms are like mini apartments. The staff, especially Darren, the Manager / Owner are absolutely great and make you feel at home. They also got us into the Magic Castle... it was really fun. Very simply, a wonderful place.... we can’t wait to get back there!!

I have stayed here 3 times (2015, 2016, 2018) and I have recently booked by next stay for Dec 2021, hoping that everything is back to normal and we can travel again. This is hands down the best hotel to stay in if you want to be close to the Chinese Theatre, Hollywood walk of Fame and Universal Studios (one stop on the train). Having a room that has a kitchen is great, so you can cook your own food. Free breakfast is great too, and so are all the snacks and soft drinks you could ever ask for. If I have any family or friends that are going to LA I always recommend staying here. I cant wait for our next stay. Stay Safe and hope to be there next year.

Our family of 4 stayed here in January 2018 and we absolutely loved our 5 night stay. Location is perfect, so close to Hollywood Blvd, Chinese Theatre and Hollywood Bowl. Size of rooms was a welcome change from our travels around California, with a large kitchen, lounge area and balcony with views of the pool. Our children aged 9&13 loved walking down each afternoon to receive free snacks and self serve drinks and ice cream. Substantial breakfast each morning by the pool, even in Winter, was so nice. Staff are friendly, accommodating and so helpful. The free laundry service was a blessing after 4 weeks of travel! We loved our stay and have recommended Magic Castle Hotel to all that have visited LA. We will definitely return on our next trip

Wow! Thank you so much for this amazing review. I love that your kids' favorite thing was walking down to get the free snacks and ice cream. I hope that's a memory that they'll have for a long time. Yes...our free laundry service is pretty nice!!! Why should you have to do your own laundry when you're on holiday??? Let us do it!! I hope you'll come back and see us again soon!!! Thank you.

Our family loved the Magic Castle Hotel. The location so close to Hollywood Boulevard, shops, restaurants and entertainment was perfect for our three night stay. The kids loved the free soft serve icecreams, and snacks and the buffet breakfast (with vegemite) eaten in a laid back spot by the pool with a complementary Magic performance was a welcome start to the day. All of the staff were lovely. Our room (1 bedroom suite) was spacious and easily accommodated our family of 5 with two boys sharing a double, one in the second double and Mum & Bad on the comfy pull out sofa in the living area. This is an older building so there is some noise transfer between rooms, and breakfast is in the courtyard so you may like to request an upper floor room if you are looking for a sleep in.

Thank you so much for this amazing review, and on behalf of the entire team we're so happy you enjoyed the hotel so much. I always love reading how much the kids enjoyed the free ice cream and snacks as that's exactly why we offer it them as a free service. We want the kids to just enjoy it, without the parents being concerned about the cost. Alonso, who performs magic during breakfast is always a guest favorite. Just for some clarity for anyone who might be reading this, Alfonso performs form 9am-10am on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Please come back and see us again soon!

We thank you for making our stay so magical. Extended family of 12 including grandparnts had an amazing stay where we were all truely spoilt. The children loved the treats and the experience of the popsicle phone from the pool.Each child was individually acknowledged and felt very special. Parents were able to relax and enjoy their stay too. The rooms were very comfortable and the staff were the best. When we left our clean laundry was presented beatifully wrapped with a sprig of lavender. All complimentary. We would never stay anywhere else and look foreward to a return trip one day.

Thank you so much for writing this! I love that there were 12 of you......I think I might even remember you actually. I'm so glad the children loved Popsicle Hotline!!! It's pretty fun! I'm also glad you allowed us to do your laundry...it's a pretty useful service, especially at the end of the holiday! We hope you'll all come back and see us again soon.
