We had read the reviews on Tripadvisor prior to booking. Almost without exception everyone raved about the customer service; now I know why. We spent our first 4 nights of a month long trip to the US here in June and we couldn't have started at a better hotel. The downside, if there was one, was that the rooms are...

Even a month later, I’m still thinking about the wonderful stay my husband and I had at the Magic Castle Hotel. From the warm and welcoming staff (we were met with delicious drinks upon arrival) to the gigantic one bedroom suite to the all-you-can eat complimentary refreshments to the more than filling breakfast – everything was fantastic! Unfortunately, we didn’t...

Wow - The Magic Castle Hotel in Hollywood is great. The people working there could give seminars on customer service. As an example, we asked one evening about the menu of a restaurant nearby. In addition to giving guidance about what to order, they handed us a menu. We decided it wasn't right for our children, so we set the...

We stayed here for 4 nights(June 26-30) during our two week visit to the US. I usually don't stay at the smaller hotels like this, but after these four days I have changed my opinion. You feel welcome from check in to check out. They serve a small but tasty complimentary breakfast and they offer you a free mini bar....

I love the people working in Magic Castle. The interior arrangement with the rooms looking at the pool feels like home away from home! The best park is u are allowed to request for snacks and drinks from front desk anytime of the day. Rooms are clean and spacious for 1 bedroom suite. Only have problem with small carpark and...

I cannot praise this hotel enough. The staff was fantastic--helpful in every way and took great pride in doing their job well and caring for the customers. The rooms are comfortable and stylish and huge. We stayed in a two bedroom suite and had more than enough room-full kitchen dining room and living room. Three flat screen TV's. The continental...

We are a family of 6 and to be honest we booked this more as a random place... we were blown away the room was amazing, service second to none and they even had free snacks for the family (which I have to say we did not use but still impressed). We got a refurbished room that was really good,...

We checked out of the magic castle this morning, we stayed there for three days during our stay in LA, I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough, the staff could not do enough for us, nothing and I mean nothing was too much trouble.

We stayed here for 6 nights as part of our USA holiday. We had high expectations after the reviews on here but we were really disappointed in this hotel. First of all, we couldn't fault the service, every staff member we dealt with was very friendly & helpful. The location was good too, only a 5 minute walk to the...

The Magic Castle hotel was the first stop on our recent 3 week holiday to the US. The staff were so lovely and helpful, and provided really great advice.
