This was by far the best place to stay and the closest of the 3 Disney Hotels but also the priciest. It was so worth it. The entrance to California Adventure was maximum 100 yards (about 300 feet). You could roll out of bed, do the early access for staying one of the 3 Disney hotels, and get in line for fast passes before the park was open to the public.
The beds in the rooms were very comfortable and they change the sheets each night. If you want the towels changed make sure you dump them in the wicker bin under the sink. We were unaware of this the first night.
They did turn down service 2 of the 3 nights and left Disney chocolates on the pillows. My mom, my dad and I (auntie) stayed in one room while my sister, brother in law and my 5 year old and 3 year old nephews in the connecting room. The maid service did NOT leave chocolate in their room, which was good and left extra in ours.
Everyone in the hotel and in the parks was so gracious. It was so nice to be surrounded by courtesy, friendliness, and helpfulness.
I used the fitness room 2 times on our 4-day visit. They have the latest treadmills, ellipticals, and other machines, all of which had TVs. I didn’t use it but there was other weight lifting equipment and machines.
The whole experience was awesome and I highly recommend this hotel.
