“Great Location, Great value, beautiful property”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2011

We stayed in a Casita Suite, and my 5-year old son loved the daybed in the separate little bedroom. We walked to Disneyland and California Adventure (shortcut by walking through the Grand California Hotel lobby). After a long day at one of the parks, it was nice to come back to our hotel and eat dinner at the Tangerine Grill. We enjoyed the atmosphere - sitting on the patio next to palm trees and listening to live jazz music. It was very relaxing after being around all the people at Disneyland! All the staff were very friendly. When the maids cleaned our room, they would arrange my sons stuffed animals and little blanket in a really cute way on the daybed. He loved that! We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: We were on the top floor - so it wasn't noisy.

The Annabella Hotel is a must if you are staying in the Anaheim area. We have been so impressed by the cleanliness, great amenities, and excellent service, that we have made this hotel our monthly get-away from Los Angeles. As someone who has worked in the five-star hotel industry of Beverly Hills, I recognize great service and value, and Annabella offers both! Adrian always goes above and beyond to accommodate, even with last minute reservations. This place truly is our home away from home and just minutes in walking distance to the gates of disneyland!

I was nervous about staying here as the reviews were mixed, but chanced it and I was very happy for the most part. We were given a double instead of the queen we had booked, which I didnt realize till my teenage son and I were crawling into bed. Pretty squishy. I talked to the staff the next day and they were of course willing to give us the queen we had booked but we didnt want to repack and move so instead, they reduced the price for the remaining nights by a decent amount, and took care of our parking. I was happy with this. Pools are both great. One quiet - one not. The big drawback was the other guests. We were on the 2nd floor of a 3 story section (some are 2 stories) and the upstairs kids were wild and someone was constantly locking their car (read- beep beep of the horn every 2 minutes for a good half hour.) When I called security, the beeping stopped. Nothing the hotel can do about noisy guests so I would recommend a room on the top floor and somewhere where there are only 2 stories so less units in an area. earplugs might help. Also, the hotel was located on the back side of the disney lot so you have to walk along Disney Way (turn left out of the front entrance of the Anabella))and go up Disney Way then through the Grand Californian Hotel to get to the Disney gates. (there is also an entrance if you head around to Harbour but that would take way to long from the Anabella. The way we took was a nice scenic walk. Parking is $10 per day at the Anabella, as is internet but the wifi worked great. Id stay again but in a quieter part of the hotel- or stay at one of the many hotels virtually across the street from the main entrance on Harbour- check googlemaps. OR at the Grand Californian if it was in the budget - whew! nice joint! Oh- and I remember reading that the restaurant was pricey- it was not at all! But then I just came from Santa Monica! It is certainly less than Disney - food was good. Good variety.

Room Tip: dont stay in the 3 floor part- try floor 2 of 2

Great location, staff is exceptionally accomodating, Nick is awesome (Front desk manager), ART pass kiosk in lobby area, lovely pool & hot tub area, nice business center, rooms were well designed, lovely grounds, clean, Happy Hour! Fabulous!

1 down fall - (small) if you use the pull out sofa in the room they charge an extra $15 dollars a night.

I was pleasantly surprised to find my hotel room to be fully updated, eco friendly, and a price to fit my budget. I didnt get a chance to upgrade my room, but was very happy with the room I ended up with. The adjacent restaurant, the Tangerine, had very good food with prices to fit any budget. The hotel staff were very helpful as well as pleasant. Thank you Anabella for a great stay! We will be back next time!

We stayed at the Anabella Hotel for 2 nights last October. The first night we arrived after midnight and the staff were very welcoming and allowed us to check in quickly so we could get to bed.

We had a mission suite, which would be nice for 2-3 people but for four, it was fairly cramped. The pullout sofa is at the end of the main bed and when folded out, it almost touched the opposite wall so had to be folded up or we had to walk over it to get to the other side of the bed. That was the only thing we could find if we wanted to be picky but I can vouch for the king bed at least, being very very comfortable. The rooms are very clean and the entrance areas are private. The gardens and landscaping in general around the site are beautiful and it had a lovely hacienda feel to it.

We had breakfast at the on site restaurant one morning and it was quite pleasant.

It is not too far a walk to get to Disneyland and the walk is lovely, with beautiful tree lined roads, and the area is well maintained. At night we took a different route from Downtown Disney and this too is not a very long walk, and is very safe late at night.

There is a large outlet center a short cab ride away and the Santa Ana (?) mall also not too far. This was an excellent opportunity for last minute shopping before we headed back to LAX for flight home.

Upon checkout, the staff allowed us to leave all of our luggage in a secure room while we went shopping. When we returned, our shuttle was an hour late. The staff allowed us to use their phone and frequently checked on us to make sure we were okay while we were waiting. It is this kind of service that inspires me to highly recommend the Anabella Hotel to others.

Our stay was pleasant, the rooms were clean and we were upgraded. The price was awesome, the people were friendly and helpful, and the food prices at the restaurant were very reasonable. Service was a little slow but tolerable. I accidentally forgot my jacket in the room closet and they located it and mailed it back to me! Jeremy, at the front desk, was so nice and accommodating! We would stay again...
