California was sunny and comfy weather wise, 70's and sunny at Venice and Redondo Beach. Disneyland was mostly open, due to filming their Christmas Show some areas where taped off temporarily, I did wave and smile when the camera came around! Staybridge for the price was average. I stayed in a one bedroom suite, room 414. It was clean and well used. The room staff were friendly and attentive to calls. The kitchenette was furnished with a fridge, coffee maker, two burner stove, microwave, toaster, cupboards with dishes and pots and pans, and they even furnish dish soap and dishwasher soap. BUTS-you cannot make a phone call and hear yourself or the party your talking to because of the LOUD AC/Heater inside room. I could not even watch television because it was so loud. My nieces came over for a slumber party and we really didn't have as much fun as we should have due to loud noises. Woke us up alot. I did have to call front desk because heater came on, and I wanted AC it was 79 degrees in room, it caused a smell and the smoke detector went off. I spoke with serviceman and he was condescending and told me the smoke detector went off because it was 'breaking in' from being off for summer. I told him I wanted AC not heat the room was 77 degrees. He put unit on AC and room finally cooled down to 75. The swimming pool was nice and outside of buildings were kept really nice and clean, but Hot Tub was dirty. The buffett breakfast was ok, and when your heading out for a day at Disneyland, you need energy. They have cereals, breads, yogurt, fruit, eggs, bacon, sausage, and a variety of muffins. Their beverage bar has tea, coffee and juices and milk in the mornings. Needs refurbishing, better lunch and dinner dining options, other than that it was a nice stay.
