The staff coupled with the location to the Disneyland parks makes this a very desirable place to stay. I have stayed here for the last 3 visits to Disneyland.
The prices that this hotel gets are mind boggling. As one that was willing to pay for the convenience of the location and being treated well by the staff, knowing I am being ripped off but still had a smile on my face. Guess that about sums up a Disney vacation.
The lobby was beautiful, the service was excellent, the location was perfect for visiting the parks and downtown Disney, and the room was big.
While the room was large, it wasn't anything amazing for the price.
Amazing stay, will be back
We loved our stay here. Our family can't wait to return! We loved the pools, the closeness to the park (our room over looked it!) and the on site character breakfast. Also loved the bunk beds for kids
There is a Loud speaker in the park that they do announcements on. You could here that muffled early in AM or late at night from our room. Needs a new shower head.
Poor staff and handling of issue
Check in process issues Poor staff experience Staff look terrible, so many obese people, also too many electric scooters for over weight people. Paid for a perm view never received it and did not get any compensation.
