This was one of the best experiences I've had at a hotel. Everything about it (location, room, services, food, etc.) exceeded my expectations and I will definitely take my family back there. I can't wait to go back.
The location is great. It is right next to Disneyland, which is the reason we stayed there, and close enough that we were able to watch the Disney fireworks from the parking lot after a couple long days at the park. The hotel is also next to restaurants — Tiffy's next door was one of the better meals we had during our stay and they make their own ice cream; Coco's Bakery provided a cheap and light alternative for breakfast when I stopped in for some muffins and bagels — and shopping and not far from Angels Stadium. Unfortunately the Angels were out of town during our stay and we weren't able to check out a game.
The hotel restaurant was better than I expected in terms of quality of food, price and just overall experience. The happy-hour specials, which we didn't get to try, were some of the best-priced items we saw throughout the area during our time there. They even had a two-man acoustic band playing on Friday night, which was a great way to unwind after a long day. If you don't have time to sit down for a meal, they also have a to-go window where you can pick up a quick meal to take back to your room.
We were very pleased with our room, which included two beds and a small pullout couch that was perfect for our small family (three people) but would have been great for a family with several kids. The room was comfortable and clean and added to the impressive overall experience we had there.
The pool also added to the great experience we had at the Anabella and if we let her, our 4 1/2 year old daughter would probably still be swimming in it. We literally had to pull her away from the pool every night because she was having so much fun. The pool was next to the outdoor seating for the restaurant, which meant it was easily accessible to drinks and food and the live music on Friday night. The hotel also had a pool-side movie playing on Friday night, which was a plus for our young family. We didn't get to take advantage of it, but the hotel's "quiet pool" looked like it offered a relaxing alternative to the family pool.
My family had such an enjoyable stay here that we can't wait to go back. Everything about it was such a positive experience that I would recommend it to anyone who is planning a trip to Disneyland or the Anaheim area.
