This was the last stop for our 3 week USA family holiday. Long trip from Vegas and were greeted by polite and helpful staff. Opened the door to the room and a magical surprise for the kids. What a way to start or stay. The breakfast is a great way to start the day. Grab some chips and drinks for your days outing at no cost from the front. Loved laying by the pool with the the staff bringing out icy poles. Kids treated well by the staff. Loved my stay here and the staff get 12/10 for service and making the stay memorable.

This hotel is not fancy, but the customer service is absolutely the best I've ever experienced. There are no elevators, but the staff are willing to help carry luggage up and down the stairs for you. We were surprised by some free "welcome" snacks and drinks in our room upon our arrival. Free DVDs to check out from the front desk, unlimited free snacks and drinks at any time. If ever we are in the Hollywood area, we will be staying here again!

Stayed here in a two bedroom suite on a recent trip to LA based on trip advisors great reviews. We were not disappointed. Although this is not a 5 star hotel the rooms were clean and nicely furnished. Great staff and service. Great location within walking distance to many attractions near Hollywood blvd. This hotel has character, as I understand it was a 50's apt complex and somewhat reminded me of TV show Melrose place. Upon arrival we were greeted with welcome drinks and my two sons (and husband) enjoyed the complimentary snacks throughout the stay.

I cannot say enough about the Magic Castle. I am so impressed. When I arrived staff rushed to assist me with my bags and two very young children (I am traveling alone and just hopped off an international flight). I was greeted and the kids were treated like royalty- gifts for kids on arrival and huge range of complimentary snacks. I was then taken by a staff member to get dinner (it was after midnight and the kids hadn't had dinner as they were fussy about the plane food). Calvin was so considerate and kind. The room is spacious, quiet and modern. The outdoors are beautifully manicured and The castle is super cool. the location is unbeatable. So happy that we chose to stay here. You won't find customer service like this anywhere else in America!

Great hotel that is a block away from Hollywood Blvd and Grauman's Chinese Theatre. We had an awesome view over Hollywood and have never had better customer service. We were there for two nights recently and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Room Tip: We had a studio apartment on the hill by the Yamashiro. It was very quiet, had a balcony, and a vie...

Like so many others on this site, we chose Magic Castle based on reviews and it really didn't disappoint! We stayed recently for three nights at the beginning of a California vacation. Nick was absolutely terrific when checking in - so nice to the kids and was very sincere and helpful with suggestions and offerings.

My kids LOVED the free snacks and I loved that they did our laundry for us. Yes, I could have done it myself but it was great to come back after a busy day of sightseeing and have it ready.

The location is really convenient; we easily walked down to the Chinese Theater/Walk of Fame, the wax museum, etc. We liked that at the very nice breakfast at the pool, there were sheets telling us the weather for the day, and events in the area. That tipped us off to a movie premiere right down the street which my daughter loved!

Other reviews are correct; this is no 5-star luxury hotel. But it IS clean, spacious, friendly and convenient. We would definitely stay again if we came back. Thanks again, Nick!

We selected this hotel based on Trip Advisor reviews and we were so pleased we did. The rooms were well appointed, great location and the most helpful staff. We've since recommended this hotel to friends who enjoyed it as much as we did. Stay here, you will not regret it.
