I chose this hotel because of its proximity to Disneyland, the free breakfast, free parking, and great reviews. Overall, it was a good experience. We checked in at 1 am on a Friday night and were told that the hotel was all out of the 1 bedroom suites so we were upgraded to a Penthouse which we were very happy about. The suite was spacious, clean, and pretty, but the layout didn’t offer much privacy. The upstairs King bedroom was completely open to the downstairs which caused problems when some of us wanted to go to sleep while others wanted to watch TV. One plus is that the King bedroom had its own bathroom with the sink/vanity area on the outside. A full kitchen, living room, and queen bedroom were downstairs. The queen bedroom was separated by French doors. The downstairs bathroom could only be accessed by going through the bedroom. While this layout was fine for us, I can see it causing problems for larger groups.
The breakfast in the morning was delicious and offered a lot of choices. As other reviews mentioned, the dining area was very crowded on Saturday and Sunday mornings, but we had no problem finding a table and the friendly staff did an excellent job of keeping the food stocked and tables cleaned. The hotel was only a 10 or 15 minute walk from the Disneyland parks so we didn’t bother with the shuttle bus. The hotel is also surrounded by plenty of dining options.
One hint to save money, a cab from LAX is usually around $100 each way. With the free parking at the hotel, renting a car was by far the more economical option.
