I am not used to the lavishness of a Marriott, but I could get used to it. Why do 4 star hotels not have double queens? The double beds were too small for me and my wife, but the room was wonderful overall. I loved the hotel for the 1 night stay. I was treated very well. However, I cannot recommend this hotel for Disneyland families on a budget, who are looking for convenience. I have now stayed at 5 hotels in the last 2 months around Disneyland (check my other reviews to know which ones). This one is the nicest by far, but suits my family's needs the least.
I drive from Vegas to go to Disneyland. Parking is $24/day here. It is also $15/day at Disney lots, with your alternative being the ART bus for $5/day/person ($2/kids). A family of 5 is in for $40/day to park and get into Disneyland when staying here. Other reviews say it's a 10-12 minute walk to save $$, but why would you stay here? The value and convenience are not achievable. If you want ease and leisure and will pay more for it, then this place is for you.
I have really lowered my opinion of ART buses. Some drivers are wonderful. We had one who was grumpy, and I would even call her service attitude toxic (it nearly ruined my night). It takes a lot to get me upset. I needed to get back to the room to take care of something and return to the park reasonably fast, but I accepted the limits of the bus schedule. They come every 20 minutes. I was back to the stop in 15 minutes. The same grouchy driver returned on schedule, but parked the bus and went on break. I waited (no worries, yet) while she smoked and loitered nearby. After 10 minutes, I asked her when I could leave, she said another bus would be here soon. It came in 5 minutes, and after the people exited, I got on and scanned my pass. She followed me on and told me I had to get off, because this driver was going on break (I just about lost it), but she would take me. The runaround, with the cost of parking, the cost of bus fare has placed me firmly in the walking-distance-hotel-or-bust category from now on.
