Watch the hotels website video, its exactly as it says. We had been travelling for 3 weeks in California & left this stop for last and didn't tell our 10yr old granddaughter about it. We were looking forward to her surprise when we arrived.
Magic Castle did not disappoint.
She absolutely LOVED this place, and lived in the pool. Her bedroom which was really the lounge but she claimed as her own room and TV.
Thank you Alex and Brianne for making her Halloween experience so nice. (Since we arrived Halloween evening)
Our room / apartment was massive.
We were fortunate to be able to walk straight out to the pool area
Breakfast was continental only but perfectly fine. Kids can order hot cocoa. At night you can even ask for a fresh pot of coffee
Alfonso thank you for the morning magic and conversation.
Yasmin, Thank you very much for our laundry. I know its part of the extra awesome free service, but it's still a person that does it so thank you.
Maintenance man, so sorry i didn't get your name. Thank you for the glue and screwdriver. We eventually found the lost earring elsewhere. Doh.
Room staff & others you do yourselves a great service. Going up and down those stairs all day? Amazing.
Underneath parking, secure and more than fine. we had a medium size SUV and had no parking issues.
Remember these were old apartments. On occasion it was little bit noisy for us downstairs. I thought it was very magic how the herd of elephants above us turned back into humans every morning.:-)
We stayed in the 2 bedroom suite. Was very spacious. The place is in need of a deep renovation. The place was clean but it is very rundown. The bathrooms were in terrible condition. Mold in the grout, tiles. I had to kills around 10 flying bugs in the shower attached to the master bedroom each night. No matter how much the place is cleaned it will still be gross due to the condition of the hotel. I really was not looking forward to returning back to the place at the end of our outings. Air conditioner was very loud. The service from staff was great. Snacks were fantastic. But you can also go to the grocery store and spend $50 to get the same snacks. Basic breakfast was convenient. Breads, toast, cereal with yogurt and fruits. If you need to stay close to Hollywood then the location is great. This was not a pleasant stay for us due to the condition of the hotel. I would not recommend staying here.
