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...

My wife and I spent our honeymoon at the Magic Castle Hotel, we had heard so many great things about this place and were not disappointed. We were given a suite with a balcony, overlooking the pool: our room faced east which meant some pretty brutal morning sunshine, but by late afternoon and evening the balcony was just perfect for...

The team at the Magic Castle are possible some of the best hoteliers I've met. Their efforts to make sure that you have a great stay are second to none. I've stayed here two times and both times the staff made every effort to keep us happy. However.. The hotel looks a little tired, to the point of nasty stains...

Having stayed at some very nice hotels during our 2 week holiday we stayed here for the last 3 nights of our trip. How do I start to describe this hotel without repeating what has already been said? Location is excellent for walking and freeway access. The rooms are massive, clean and comfortable. On-site parking is great and very reasonably...

Exceptional service! Our family loved staying here, & wished we'd booked longer. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. The rooms are a little tired, but I actually found this a relief with two small children. Less for me to worry about! Free snacks, free laundry service, free breakfast, free movies, all just perfect for families!

They welcome you with a sparkly beverage, they give out free snacks, free movies, free parking, free shuttle service. Once were inside, there is a kitchen, robes, chocolate, and water. The beds are pure heaven with down comforters that mold to your body. The main pool area looks like an oasis surrounded by villa rooms with whit shutters. They even...

The Magic Castle Hotel is truly a home away from home. We stayed here for 4 nights and were blown away. The rooms are clean and massive (ours was a one bedroom apartment) and you are only one block from the walk of fame and everything Hollywood has to offer.

Hi Ryan, Thank you so much for the review! I was so happy to read that you enjoyed your stay so much....that's great news. We get the "Melrose Place" comment a lot.
