I can't say enough good things about this hotel. We are a family of 5 and we had an excellent stay. We have all boys, 8, 5 and 8 months. The hotel provides a crib upon request which was super convenient with the baby. I will say, if you will be using their crib, it is a basic metal-framed crib with a basic 3" pad (give or take). We wiped it down with a wet wipe and bought a clearance crib sheet for it at the local Target - we just felt more comfortable going that. We also did a little grocery shopping at the Target because we had a full kitchen which helped us save some money in cooking some of our meals. Hotel grounds were nice and clean. Beds and pillows were nice and super comfy. Bathroom was a good size. Iron board/iron, hair dryer, provided in our room. Kitchen was stocked with plates, utensils, pot/pans, cups, coffee maker and coffee although hotel provides FREE coffee in the lobby. Dish soap and dish washer soap was provided. If you will be cooking, you will need to purchase your own cooking oil or cooking spray/butter - whatever you prefer/need. No kitchen table, but a long desk that doubled as what would be a kitchen table at one end. Not enough room or chairs though for everone to sit and eat together. This didn't bother us. Full fridge with ice maker. Being able to take home leftovers and reheat also helped us save money where we could. We did not use the gym, but it looked sufficient. Pool area met all basic needs, bbq grills, lounge chairs and 2 cabana-type areas with bathrooms. Pool itself is small and no more than 3' deep, but for us it was perfect with having little ones who don't swim very well. Great location. Close to so many places to eat. Walk to Disney is doable. You may want to weigh the pros and cons when doing the walk with littles. I booked the room directly through the IHG website, but I started with checking reviews and guest photos on Trip Advisor. I believe the hotel is fairly new as far as ownership and renovations so there aren't any negative pictures as of date which helped me to choose this hotel. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend this hotel to everyone. Our stay was 4/18/17 to 4/22/17.
Is it The Ritz? No. But it is very comfortable (great bed!), practical (very nice stocked kitchenette in the room) and the staff is superb. I cannot say enough about everyone I encountered at the front desk. So helpful and giving. The parking is complementary, a big deal around Disney. And if you check out in the morning and still have one day left in the park, they will let you leave your car until that evening. I will stay here again when I spend the night to go to the park.
I stayed here for 4 nights with my 2 children ages 6 and 13 while going to Disneyland. The rooms are new, super comfortable and the full size kitchen was very useful. The hotel staff was wonderful for checking in and very helpful when needed! The pool is VERY small and not really very kid friendly. It's a small therapeutic pool that we thought was very cold! There is an ART bus right outside the hotel lobby and the Garden Walk is also very close! One morning our ART bus didn't show up after waiting 45 minutes so we had to walk to the park and it only took about 15-20 minutes. I wouldn't have felt safe walking at night though. Over-all its a decent place if you don't care about a pool and just use the bus system for getting to and from the parks!
This would've been a very nice stay except for ants the first day. Check in was good and initial room check was nice. Brought a few groceries back to room. Next morning had ants all over the desk and in box of donuts. Clerk was very apologetic and immediately moved us to another room. We both worked in the room till about 1230pm and missed housekeeping so after two days put garbage outside the door. Third day we caught the housekeeper and got towels and was told rooms they missed in the morning got serviced in the afternoon but our room only got serviced once when we left by 1130am. Rest of our stay was uneventful. The kitchen and full size fridge was a nice feature. Wifi worked well. Bed was very comfortable. The laundry room was free of charge, except soap, which was amazing. Parking was free and plenty of spaces. Hotel is very close to Disneyland and numerous restaurants and by freeways. Staff were all very nice.
This is a newer hotel facility in the area. I had made reservations ahead of time online and the check-in was very easy. I found the room to be clean and the beds comfortable. The full size refrigerator/freezer and microwave was great to have for our drinks and leftovers. There was a 2-burner cooktop, but we did not cook any meals while there. The daily housekeeping of making beds, taking out trash, and replenishing bath towels was sufficient for our stay. The room we stayed in was on the 4th floor and we were able to access the wifi sufficiently. We did opt to Uber to and from Disneyland due to the cooler weather that SoCal was experiencing during our vacation. Each one way trip for our family of 3 cost approximately $6.50, which ended up being a much better deal than the ART bus that inconsistently serves the area. The only problems we encountered were that housekeeping did not leave us enough wash clothes on the 2nd and 3rd night of our stay. The front desk was kind enough to deliver some to our room. Also, the hallways had the tendency to become littered with random, small pieces of trash, like Q-tips. I know it's hard to keep a common living space like that clean due to the disrespectful nature of some tenants, but workers should be reminded to pickup trash if they see it laying around... or at least let housekeeping know that a quick vacuum of the hallway on the 4th floor is needed. I would definitely recommend and stay at this hotel in the future.
Hotel is close to highway, convention centre and Disney. In fact, it is only about a block from the parking lot for both. The area is not the best place for walking at night, but no problems during the day. The Anaheim Garden Walk is very close as well. The room is a good size and comes with minimal cleaning. Due to the extended stays, the cleaning seems to last all day in the hotel. The pool area was very nice, but not what I would consider kid friendly. Okay by me, as I could enjoy the sun and quiet in the small pool. The area is also set up for BBQs and common rooms with tables and tvs.
The property is approximately a 10 minute walk from the parks and 15 minutes from Downtown Disney. Brand new with great furnishings and large suites. We were in a one bedroom suite and very much enjoyed it. Wifi worked very well. The "Candlewood Cupboard" or mini convenience store was surprisingly well stocked. There was a nice pool on our floor although we didn't have a chance to use. Everyone we interacted with was pleasant and got the job done. Great stay and great property, would definitely stay again.
This hotel is very close to Disneyland (about 5 minutes driving) with a walking distance Cheesecake Factory and other places nearby. Having a kitchen, it's a plus so you can save some money on food. The room was big and has a huge desk. I was so happy to do laundry for free (of course, bring your own detergent). There was a night I noticed the water in the shower was not hot at all and that is indispensable for me. I tried to call the front desk but they never picked up my room calls. The next day, I personally went to tell them about my concern and the guy told me it was an issue in the whole hotel. He apologized and explained me they were working on it. Thank God when I came back from the parks it was fixed. Also, if you are looking for a family pool I will suggest you check another hotel because it is tiny. In general, the staff was friendly and I consider it was a good place to stay!
The room is a great size. It's wonderful to have a kitchen. The beds are super comfortable! BUT after a long day at Disneyland if you want to soak in a hot tub, forget it. You get a cold pool. Not a big deal. But if you want a hot, or even warm shower, you might not get that either. We didn't have hot water for a while. And speaking of water, I just think a nice hotel like this ought to have filtered drinking water available for guests without charging $2 for Dasani. Also the elevator doors could be more clearly marked. There are 2. One leads to the parking garage and the other to the hotel lobby. They both say 'lobby'. A little confusing til you get your bearings. Other than that it was a very comfortable stay.
The hotel is so close to Disneyland and reasonably priced. We had a kitchenette which helped a lot with eating in and cooking for the kids. The theme park dining options are expensive so this was a great plus. We were rained out of the park so we had to stay in. There were delivery options when we didn't want to cook. They have DVD players on loan with a decent movie selection. This came in very handy since their cable selections weren't very kid/family oriented. The housekeepers and maintenance we encountered were all very friendly.
