highly recommed this hotel from the moment we arrived the staff were freindly and helpful, breakfast was great out near the pool, also free minbar so you could get snacks and drinks anytime for no charge. An older hotel and there is no lift so you have to carry bags upstairs, but that is the only flaw, also highly recommend visiting the magic castle restuarant and show the food was 5 star. would stay here again. also great location

My husband and I stayed for 2 nights in LA at the Magic Castle and the service is amazing. Both Nick's had amazing customer service and nothing was ever a problem and always had smiles on their faces. The room was clean and stylish. Love the DVD collection, was great chilling by the pool after a day of sightseeing and staff come around with ice blocks. The complementary drinks , snacks, wifi and laundry and bonus luxury and added to such a welcoming stay. Only a block from Chinese theatre and walk of fame so perfect location. The service was the best we have received at a hotel. Thanks so much and I will be recommending you to everyone I know.

I wanted to stay near the "Magic Castle" the Castle next door which has continuous Magic shows and is a place where Magicians congregate, I had been there many years before having been recommended to it by the famous magician Paul Daniels, at that time I was staying in Anaheim .
Seeing that it was not rated 5 star and it was the end of our trip ( I wanted a good last few days) I nearly booked one of the more well known ( and much more expensive) hotels....SO SO glad we didn't .
This place is superb, greeted with smiles and a champagne glass of a very refreshing fruit drink was just the start.
The staff are wonderful, our bags were carried to our suite, we were given a map of the locality a list of all the free films we could borrow, a list of loads of snacks, munchies treats, sodas, and drinks that are complimentary at any time of day.
The location is awesome, you cannot be nearer to Hollywood Boulevard, The walk of Fame, and all those "to do" sights in L.A.
The breakfast is also complimentary you can take this by the pool or in your room, the room is virtually an apartment with a large living area, dining table, full kitchen. Great bathroom and a large and sumptuous bed with great bed linen, what a great nights sleep in a very quiet room.
During our stay we saw the manager offering complimentary Popsicles to children in the pool,
their service is excellent .
I cannot recommend this place enough!

Room Tip: We chose a room at the top with a sunny balcony...and opted for a suite which would take a family .

Stayed 3 nights in Feb in this hotel. Loved it. I have never been in any hotel that the front desk staff is as friendly and attentive as this one. Very impressive.
Like :
-Location is great. Next door to Magic Castle. We were invited to Magic Castle and had a wonderful evening. We watched magic shows up close and personal.
- Free breakfast by the pool, wonderful.
- Every evening, they gave us a whole bag of snack e.g. chocolate, like Halloween, really fun.
- In the lobby, they serve apply cider instead of tea and coffee, more interesting
- WiFi is working very well
- quiet area, short walk to all the activities.

We had a one bedroom suite. The room may need updating, but it is adequate for us.

Lovely little hotel just a few blocks walk from Hollywood streets and many attractions.

Staff were very helpful and friendly and went the extra mile.

Rooms nicely presented and great value. Very spacious for the size also.

We had the one bedroom suite, the room itself was very spacious. Overall the place needs some updating, the shower door did close properly, the sofa had stains on it, the carpet as well, and it looked like it hadn't been vacuumed, nor was it vacuumed during our 2 night stay and some of our towels were really used with a few holes in them. The staff was very friendly and accommodating, they have lots of DVDs you can rent which is great when you have children, and they offer unlimited snacks and drinks. I do have to say, I loved the bed, it was by far the most comfortable!
