My husband and I just stayed here on vacation for three nights. We've been visiting the Anaheim area for several years and have tried each of the large, nicer hotels. This was our first time staying at the Marriott Anaheim and it is right up there at the top of our list.
A staff member greeted us warmly at the reception desk. We stayed in a corner executive king with city view. The room was huge and quiet with classy, modern decor with an extra large California(?) king bed, a comfortable high-back chair, ottoman, and a work desk with a pull-out table. There was a comfy crisp, white down comforter on the bed. We requested a microwave, and the room already had a fridge in it. There was a big balcony off of the room. There was a large, flat screen TV with a variety of cable channels including HBO.
The bathroom had a white rug at the sink, which was a nice touch. The shower had a high-quality Speakman shower head with great water pressure. There were plenty of lights and mirrors for getting ready, including a full-length mirror near the door. We liked the thermostat/AC control as we could turn it up to 74 degrees and only have the AC come on intermittently or we could turn it off completely. It was very comfortable for sleeping. The room service (Marriott Burger) was good and timely. We were also able to do our own airline check-in and print our tickets in the lobby free of charge. The elevators were always very quick to arrive and in spite of the large number of people in the hotel, it never felt crowded. The location was perfect as it was near restaurants, Target, the convention center, and within walking distance of Disney. We also enjoyed the full-service Starbucks right inside the hotel that offered the same food items and drinks as a standalone Starbucks.
The only minor negatives were a lack of theme park view rooms (due to the hotel’s location behind the Hilton), and our city view looked out in part over the roof and HVAC systems. There was a lot of walking from the self-parking lot to the lobby and then to our room. Okay, and then since I’ve been watching too much “Hotel Impossible” we did hear two young male staff complaining about guests and dropping "f" bombs as they were coming up the back stairs and past our room, and there is a note in black print on the shower tile that instructs guests to keep the shower curtain liner inside the tub while showering. There were fees for internet access ($12.95/day) and parking ($24), but this is fairly standard at any of the nicer Anaheim hotels.
Overall, I would say that the Marriott offers a lot more bang for your buck than staying at a Disney resort, the location is great, and the rooms are modern and complete with amenities.
