This hotel was an amazing first stop on our trip (Aug 6-8) and was booked based on the reviews posted here. There are so many positives- complimentary snacks, bevies, breakie, and Popsicles for the kiddies! We booked a massive one bedroom suite and felt like we were at a friends apartment rather than a hotel- absolute zero hotel feel! Ya...

We were in LA for just one night - to see a concert at the Hollywood Bowl - and chose this hotel really only for the location. We got so much more. First, the location really is as good as advertised: a short walk to the Hollywood Bowl and just one block from all the touristy stuff on Hollywood Blvd....

Hi Esther V, I'm so glad you enjoyed the hotel so much. We get the "Melrose Place" comment often, and I agree with it. I think our guests like to pretend that they're staying in their own apartment in Hollywood. I'm glad you got your cream cheese!! We thrive on that! Not cream cheese, but delivering whatever little thing our...

You've got to love the Magic Castle Hotel. It is a 5-minute walk from Hollywood Boulevard and a 1-minute walk to the Magic Castle Club. It has a courtyard with a swimming pool and all the rooms face in towards it. Breakfasts are delicious and you can ask the front desk for a huge range of snacks for free that...
