This is a great hotel and is good value. The kids loved the free munchies and it was walking distance to Hollywood Boulevard. They were very helpful and friendly. We had a two night stay and wished we had made reservations for the iconic Magic Castle adjacent to the complex. We ran out of time.

A lot of fun! When we got back to the room after the shows we called down to the front desk and ordered up... More

We (3 adults) stayed at the magic castle for 5 nights in late January 2013. It will met all of my expectations based on the reviews on TA, it certainly lived up to the hype. My favourite part about the magic castle is that the service is amazing, but not obtrusive. The staff are willing to accommodate any request, and... More

We recently stayed at magic castle during our trip to LA. It was the last leg of our trip. I have to say from the minute we walked into the lobby, the fabulous service from staff started. We were greeted with sparkling lemonade and checked in at lightning speed. When we arrived in our room, it was very clean, spacious... More

Just returned from 6 nights at the Magic Castle Hotel and it once again deserves to be a top hotel in Los Angeles. Since we visited in 2006, they have updated a lot of the rooms and they look fresh with new paint, fixtures and furniture. The staff, as previous, are the envy of any hotel I have visited. You...

We'd originally planned to stay nearby but that hotel couldn't accomodate us for the entire duration of our trip, so we had decided to give the Magic Castle Hotel a go based on reviews from this website. And it was amazing... We'd arrived a lot earlier than we had anticipated (a unexpectedly easy exit through LAX), several hours before check-in.... More

I can see why this hotel gets such great reviews. We have just spent two nights there and the service is fantastic. We came to the hotel after a 31hour flight from Perth, very jet lagged and overawed by everything.
