Ok never written a review before but this place is so cool, we did Beverly Hills Hotel, Viceroy in SM, Carmel Valley ranch and Montage all in the same trip with a six year old. Forget the stars this place is up there with them all, the pool isn't so big but nor is any pool in LA. The rooms...

We just got home from another very happy stay at the Magic Castle - this was our third stay and won't be our last. Arriving after a long day of flying and finding we'd been allocated our preferred room made us feel like we were coming home. And the balloons, gift and cake awaiting our daughter who was turning two,...

From the minute I booked our stay I explained our sons food allergy, the staff emailed me back and asked about our sons special dietary needs. On arrival we had the best introduction to Magic Castle Hotel's customer service or as I like to call it real customer care! Allergy Free products and treats had been left in our room,...

The staff there was so friendly and accommodating. The location is fantastic just a two minute walk to Hollywood boulevard. The rooms are adequate bit old but very clean. No complaints would highly recommend. I would definitely stay here again.

There is a reason the Magic Castle has so many great reviews... It is simply THE BEST place to stay in Hollywood. The staff there were so incredible. We were made to feel like royalty the minute we walked in with a glass of sparkling lemonade and the best service we had seen throughout our 4 city trip so far....

Great location just blocks away from Chinese Theatre but far enough so it’s isolated and a nice break from Hollywood Boulevard’s freak-show comical characters. It’s rated number one in L.A. by the continuous patronage from budget-conscious tourists looking for big rooms, comfort, value, location, and convenience. It’s very clean and service is top notch for a 3-star hotel. This is...

This hotel has everything. The BEST staff by far, great location and FREE snacks. Wouldn't look past this hotel if you are looking to stay in Hollywood. There are great restaurants near by, a small farmers market up the hill on a Thursday evening which has amazing views of LA (the hotel even has a free driver to take you...

Everything you read about the excellent service of this hotel is 100% true. All the staff go over and above your excpectations to ensure you have everything you need. I do agree that the rooms are dated especially floors and bathroom. The mattresses could also stand to be replaced. I was a little annoyed that after booking room about 2...
