Great place to stay with families & service was terrific. Kids will have a ball with snacks, pool & great location if visiting Hollywood. Rooms are spacious but there is no grocery store real close by but staff show you how to get there. Kids magic kit is also a great touch & free laundry was also a godsend. Happily...

We live about 20 min. away from this hotel but stay here every year just before the holidays begin to have a sort of staycation and enjoy parts of the city we never see or go to. This place is absolutely the very best place in LA to stay. This hotel is really an apartment building turned into a hotel...

This is a very good option for the right situation, like ours. We have a family of 5 and had a great deal of space, basically a one-bedroom apartment. The staff, as everyone says, is amazing. Couldn't be more helpful or friendly. They are smart to provide unique services to stand out with since the rooms are pretty old. The...

We stayed 3 nights and found the hotel was reasonable and convenient for families. There were two adults and two kids under 10 in our party. Firstly, the rooms are very spacious - like a smallish apartment. We had the one bedroom suite, a living area and kitchen. The room we had wasn't as fancy as the website pictures would...

This hotel used to be an apartment building many years ago, so it's a bit older but it is comfortable and clean and within walking distance to the Centre of Hollywood. The staff are amazing, so friendly and helpful, plus the little extras they offer which are free snacks and cool drinks, plus free laundry! Where else can you stay...

I can't say enough good things about the Magic Castle Hotel. Very inviting, interesting layout, *large* suites (former apartments really), beautiful courtyard with a heated pool open 24/7/365. The staff may be the friendliest and most helpful I've ever encountered. Location is slightly off the beaten path of the touristy areas of Hollywood, but within easy walking distance to the...

Thank you so much for the review. Happy 50th! Yes...the free ice cream is always a hit and our fun new drink machine is pretty great too. I'm glad you enjoyed our laundry service.

Magic castle hotel is in a great location for Hollywood Boulevard if that's what you're looking for, with close access to a metro stop (only one station to universal studios.) The hotel staff were friendly and helped us get an early check in after a long flight. Room was clean and perfect for a 2 night stay. While I didn't...
