The booking website listed "free continental breakfast" as an amenity. It is not free. The hotel charges for breakfast and daily parking. The "free" WiFi was terrible. The room also could have been cleaner; there was still a sock on the floor from a previous occupant.
very convenient location to convention center
room décor is dated, pillows were lumpy/old, breakfast buffet was not good. price for value was high for expensive tradeshow hotel rate
The hotel was very close to Disneyland Resort and I was able to walk right over to the park, so that was extremely convenient. The price was comparable with other hotels in the area. Staff was very friendly at check in.
Parking was not included in the cost of the stay, which at a comparable hotel in the area, it is complimentary. They also charge for their shuttle to the park, where it is complimentary for some nearby hotels. Also, no included breakfast.
Restaurant Quietness Proximity to the park
No free breakfast 14 dollar per day parking charge
Nicely updated. Having a k-cup coffee maker was nice Front desk was friendly and quick
Would have been better if the room had a mini fridge. Maids started vaccumming the hallways at 730-800 every morning not a nice way to wake up. No free breakfast.
I liked that it was clean and the room was pretty nice. It was everything I was hoping for. I had never heard of the this hotel before but it was within walking distance to the Anaheim Convention center and alot cheaper than the Hilton. I was worried as to how it would look, or if it would be clean enough, or worth the money I was paying. But all my fears were put to rest and I enjoyed my stay.
I didn't like having to pay for parking at a Hotel I was already paying for but it was par for the course, with all hotels in the area charging similar fees. So no biggie I guess.
Front desk interaction was very uncomfortable
It was very close to everything and the room was very nice.
Parking should be comped by the hotel.
location cleanliness staff
Bath tub drain was clogged
My partner booked the stay taking into consideration, that after being on tour, I needed R&R and would've liked a decent bar to lounge in during the evenings. The advertisement for this hotel showed a nice accommodating well stocked bar. This was false advertising on its face. They have no bar! I had to go across the street to a nicer hotel (The Sheraton) to find a real bar and social interaction. Very disappointed in KAYAK for not showing an accurate description of said accommodations.
close to Disneyland
terrible staff and the room next door had a dog that bark continuously
Two long blocks from the enterance of Disneyland, easy to walk and parking at the hotel and walking saved us from any additional parking fees at the park. Staff was helpful and friendly. No complaints on the amenities or cleanliness. Our family had a nice stay.
Beds were very soft, not our preference. Parking was $14 and wasn't disclosed when we booked the room. However, we only had to pay once even though we left our car there for the day while at Disney after we checked out.
