My husband and I stayed here in February 2013 for a quick trip to Disneyland. This hotel is beautiful! I found the staff to be very friendly, especially the parking staff. The hotel is a 10-15 minute walk to the park gates, or you can get an ART pass and it sounds like the ART comes every 20 minutes or so. A cab ride for two people to the parks is about $10. We tried all three modes of transportation. They have cabs parked at the hotel 24 hours a day, which was very convenient because we had a 7am flight on the way home. We had a large room on the corner (1501) and it was very quiet and had a nice view. The hotel also had lots of amenities, such as a pool and hot tub, restaurants, and a large gift shop. In my opinion, nothing beats the Disney hotels, but the Marriott is a nice place and I would stay here again!
