Great rooms great staff. Well set up for families. Close enough to walk to Disneyland but we used a shuttle $7 for the 7 of us including car seat for the baby. Guest laundry a bonus and little things like enough space for your shampoo in the shower made a difference. Our view over Disneyland and the fireworks was great. Really comfy beds!
hotel is within walking distance to Disneyland. Able to see Disney fireworks from hotel

clean rooms, friendly and helpful staff
bus or taxi ride away from shopping outlets and shopping centres
We have stayed at all 3 Disney hotels in Anaheim. For decades the Disneyland Hotel was the only Disney property, and we always enjoyed staying there. But over the years the place started to show its age. We then switched to the Grand Californian for our annual family visit, and it remains our favorite. We tried Paradise Pier last year and found it not up to Disney standards, although the price was reasonable. This year we went back to the (refurbished) Disneyland Hotel, and I must say overall it is back near the top. The rooms are spacious, with updated bathrooms and all the amenities, the service is top notch, and while we still love the architectural grandeur of the Grand Californian, we will probably return to the Disneyland Hotel next year because it is such a value. All of the "Cast Members" that work there are helpful, happy and willing to bend over backwards to make your stay memorable. Stay at the Disneyland Hotel, save a few bucks, and walk through the Grand Californian and admire the architecture.
The staff is incredibly friendly and goes out of its way to accomodate even the most demanding and picky guests (which include me). The location is wonderful - just on the backside of California Adventure and a quick walk into the park.
*For these trips, trip savings is at least equal to the cost of the flight or hotel if booked separately. Note: For trips including flights, you will be charged by the airline for the flight, but your savings on the trip will equal the cost of the flight.
