I had just arrived from an over night flight from Australia and headed by shuttle bus to the hotel. It was morning so the room was going to be a couple of hours, so they stored my bags, gave me some refreshments and booked me a tour around LA for the afternoon. (Gotta stay up so that sounded like a...

Magic Castle Hotel were above and beyond expectations. The customer service here was like nothing I have ever experienced. Whether it was advice on the local go to places or the free snacks and laundry, they provided 110%. Highly recommend staying here, it's only a 2 minute walk (if that) from Hollywood Boulevard and extremely close to the subway station...

We were greeted by Nick D and Gretchen and I would have to say their customer service was exceptional. Nothing was a bother and they took time to explain things to us and also made the kids feel welcome. (The night staff weren't as friendly). The hotel offers complimentary snacks at any time of the day. We were given a...

We are frequent travellers for business and family reasons however rarely have time to write reviews. In the case of the Magic Castle Hotel however we felt compelled to take the time to add our comments to the others on Tripadvisor. Simply put, this was the best service we have experienced at any hotel we have ever stayed at. We...

We stayed in a one bedroom suite for 2 nights - room was more like a spacious one bedroom apartment than a suite, much bigger than we expected. Everyone we dealt with at the hotel was extremely friendly and helpful. As we were traveling with 2 young kids, I called a few times prior to arrival to make sure everything...

The magic castle is THE place to stay in Hollywood. Convenient for everywhere. Although the accomodation could do with some modernising, the staff are amazing. Nothing is too much trouble, free drinks and snacks. Nice little breakfast. Comfy beds. Everything you need. Wouldn't stay anywhere else in Hollywood!

If you are looking for somewhere to stay in L.A. no need to look any further than the Magic Castle and Hollywood Hills Hotel in Hollywood. There are 2 locations and we stayed at the Hollywood Hills Hotel, which is a little further up the hill. A shuttle service was available to us at the drop of a hat, between...

Hi Linda, I loved meeting you and your kids! I was actually wondering if you ended up going to the yoghurt place and Paradise Cove. I'm so glad your kids like the yoghurt place (so do mine). I'll have to recommend that route more often...it's a good day trip. Thank you so much for staying with us!! Please come back...
