4 out of 5
The staff was amazing. Drinks and treats upon check in and the kids loved the snacks and popsicles. The heated pool came in handy with the cold weather. Unfortunately the room had no heat and the temps dropped into the lower 40s. Woke up freezing in the night. Be prepared for noise as this hotel is on a busy street. Overall great place to stay.

Nice to be right next to the Magic Castle but was a little loud the next morning.

Satisfied overall

The hotel is well located for Hollywood. Nice property with a pool in the center court. Had a small room with connecting door for the first night and although located to the side of the building very noisy, a problem with many LA locations. Was able to change to a larger room at the back which was much quieter. Well appointed with a large king-size bed, living/dining and kitchen area. The bathrooms could stand an upgrade, the kitchen had newer equipment. Staff was friendly and the free breakfast adequate for my requirements. Overall a nice three star hotel, Guess that's LA!

not as good as other visits

While we have stayed at Magic Castle before and enjoyed it, this time we were assigned to the tiniest, weirdest room. It had no working phone, and none of the amenities (kitchenette, DVD, coffeemaker) that were listed. When I mentioned this to staff, they said they had no other rooms and could not move us. This remodel was also poorly done: paintpatches in evidence, paint on the Pergo bathroom floor, no caulking around tub, no plugs in bathroom etc.Breakfast was still good, though, and the visit to the Magic Castle itself was very special

The "magic" of Magic Castle!

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, free snacks and popsicles at the pool.
Cons: i didn't want to go home!
I simply cannot say enough good things about this hotel! The staff are the best that I have EVER encountered... and I travel quite a bit on business. An associate has been telling me about this place for quite a while and I finally booked myself into this incredible Hollywood hotel for 8 fantastic days while there on business. I simply WILL NOT stay anywhere else in Hollywood from this moment on. Period. They made me feel so welcomed, so special, so... happy to be there. Thank you to everyone at this very special hotel, especially... Gretchen, Lisa, Nick, and Gabi. I definitely WILL be back. Kudos to all. Keep up the excellent work!
