Even before arriving, I planned on giving the Marriott Anaheim a negative review, based solely on their $24/day parking fee. It just seemed ridiculoulsy high. And it still does. But there were so many other things to like about our stay that I changed course and wrote an entirely different review.
We were in town to visit Disneyland, and the location is perfect if you're parking at the Toy Story lot (which is just across the street). You can also walk directly to the park in less than 15 minutes. The rooms aren't huge, but the entire property is remarkably clean and the beds were incredibly comfortable.
There's a Starbucks on the main level, along with free WiFi on the Lobby floor. Not sure why they feel the need to charge for WiFi in your room (besides extra revenue, of course), but at least the free WiFi downstairs worked great. There's also free Wii games for the kids near the check-in area.
In fact, the parking was really the only negative about our stay. There was only one elevator for the parking garage working during our stay, so there was often a line just to get on (good preparation for Disneyland, I suppose). It's also quite a walk to/from the parking garage elevator from your room, so you may just want to walk to Disneyland instead of going to the trouble of getting your car.
But once you get past the fact that you're paying $24/day for parking, you'll enjoy most everything about this Marriott. They even have a huge workout area, which we didn't use since so much of our time was spent at Disneyland. The staff was universally friendly, and we had a great stay. And nobody was more surprised than me.
Walk directly to Disneyland (or take a short walk to the Toy Story lot and ride their free shuttle...
