I chose this hotel simply because it was rated number 1 from all hotels available in los angeles and it proved me right because the people were lovely, the rooms were lovely and it was situated in a lovely area right beside the hollywood boulevard! I really couldn't complain as they even gave us free snacks and there was also...

I knew we were off to a great start when we received a warm welcome that included a cool beverage. We truly felt welcome. And, they do offer that anything we need or want to just ask. To get to our room, we walked through a courtyard with a pool at the center. There were a few flights of short...

This is really a comfortable, relaxing place to spend some time. The staff is top notch and always makes you feel more than welcome, they really like people here! Our room was very large, more like a one room apartment which I think the building once was. I was first attracted to this hotel by their hookup with the famous...

My family and I have literally stayed in hotels all over the world. This is not the most expensive hotel we've stayed in, but most definitely our favorite. From the time we checked in we were pampered and catered to. The staff said they wanted us to feel at home, but we were much more comfortable! There were slippers and...

What a gem! The staff here are lovely. Nothing is too much trouble. The apartment was a good size, and very clean. A continental breakfast is provided each morning and they even had vegemite. A perk of staying here is that you can get into the Magic Castle club. They have a snack menu and you can get whatever you...

We took a chance on an early check in and indeed were rewarded! We stayed four to a two bedroom suite. One couple and two friends. The room was PERFECT. I'm not a "fancy four star hotel" person so this place appealed to me immediately upon reading other reviews. For the price between four people this place could not be...

We had a fantastic stay at the Magic Castle! It is a lovely hotel and the staff are just amazing - so helpful! All the staff during our stay were great, but particularly Nick - he gave us great lists of what to do. It was so nice to have such a welcoming hotel as the first stop on our...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, the room, although obviously quite old was well kept up, neat and clean. The obvious reason to stay here is to enjoy the Magic Castle next door, but we would return to use as a base for Hollywood Blvd and Sunset Strip wanderings, also. Since...

I stayed here for 4 nights and it was an amazing stay that I would recommend to anyone visiting LA. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful.
