“Amazing again!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

Another wonderful trip to Anaheim, staying in our favourite hotel in the area. It has been a couple years since we were in town, and the same wonderful cook was serving breakfast in the morning, with the same happy personality and service for all the guests. It's a sign of good management when staff is retained!

Rooms were spacious, very clean, tidy, and very well afforded: microwave, fridge, coffeemaker, hairdryer. The front desk staff helped me find local stores I needed, and were helpful at any time of day or night. The cleaning crews were very friendly and cheery in the mornings.

The hotel is very well located off a main freeway, and is just a 5 minute drive to Disneyland. We had our own car, but they have a shuttle to Disney that a lot of guests used. We drove to Disney, and also took the freeway out to Long Beach for a day at the aquarium. Fantastic!

Thanks again to the Aryes Anaheim...we'll be back as soon as we can!

Room Tip: Rooms away from Katella Ave are quieter, but those right near Katella have a view of the Disneyland...

The hotel was great, very comfortable bed, nice bathroom, a good free breakfast and very helpful/friendly staff.

The only thing I would say that has no reflection on the hotel - Anaheim is miles away from most of the good tourist spots in LA. It's great for Disneyland/Orange County. But with LA traffic it is very difficult to get to Hollywood and many other LA spots. If you are planning on non Disneyland activities I would book closer to Hollywood as LA is a massive sprawling city and Anaheim is a long way away.

My husband, teen and I recently stayed here for a few nights while visiting Disneyland. Our rooms were beautiful. The beds, linens and pillows all very comfortable. We had tons of room in our king room, it was almost like a suite with one area with a nice couch, table and chair then a partial wall with louvers that separated the sitting area from the wonderful king bed. My son had a room with two double beds. It was spacious but the area where we had a sitting area was taken up by the second bed.

The breakfast was very yummy and the hot dishes actually changed each day a bit which was nice. All days there were delicious pancakes fresh off a real grill. Yum! There was usually a wait for these. The bacon and sausages that were on different days were very tasty, seemed better quality than other type hotel breakfasts that have a buffet like this. The other parts of the breakfast -- donuts, muffins, bagels, cereal, yogurt and such were all great and the fresh fruit salad was a really nice touch. The coffee was even good!

The front desk was very helpful. They were able to give us a King room even though when we booked we could only get double rooms. They did that fast an efficiently. We also bought our bus tickets to Disney there -- $5/per person per day. We were shocked when we got on the 9:30am bus (the park only opened at 10am that day) and we were the ONLY people on the bus. Amazing. We thought it would be packed. It seems that lots of families just go ahead and drive to the park. I'd recommend the bus since you actually get dropped off closer and don't have to take the Disney tram from their parking lot plus you have to pay for parking so... The only glitch was that when we returned on the second to last bus of the evening at 10pm, our driver was told to hold until 10:30 and be the last bus. VERY annoying but we made friends with the cute families with small children who were on the bus. There were only 3 families on that bus.

You can buy your Disney online tickets right in the lobby of the hotel. There's a printer set up next to the computer to make it very easy.

We did go in the nice jacuzzi. Very warm. Towels easily available. Pool is small but fine.
Exercise room has just a few machines in it but they were in good shape, current like eliptical and treadmill with a few other weight machines.

Overall, I wish we could have stayed longer. I really feel this was a nice step above hotels that include breakfast in their rates. The location is right by a bunch of freeways and only a 15 min. bus ride but the quality is what would bring me back.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the side of the hotel that doesn't have construction going on. We didn't...

We were so excited to stay at this hotel because of the glowing reviews and their rating as #1 here on Trip Advisor, and we were not disappointed even in the slightest! From the moment we walked in to check in, we were reassured that we had made the right choice!! Linda was extremely friendly and accommodating and answered all of our questions. Oh, I can't forget to mention the platter of delicious freshly baked chocolate chip cookies that were available to us upon check-in! When we walked into our room, we were ecstatic! It was elegantly decorated...it was very warm and welcoming! Our kids started calling the hotel "home" right away! We were at the hotel for 3 days/2nights to celebrate our son's ninth birthday, and everyone at the hotel made him and our daughter feel so special! The second day we were there was our sin's birthday, and Chef Jose (who truly is as wonderful and nice as all the other reviews say) took the time to surprise our kids with Mickey Mouse pancakes, even though he was very busy! We so appreciated that!! When we returned to the hotel later in the evening after Disneyland, Linda surprised our kids by giving them Ayres teddy bears, which was so sweet! We will definitely be returning to this hotel next time we go to Disneyland...which reminds me, they offer 20% to Disneyland Annual Passport holders! All in all, it was the best hotel stay we have ever had!

This hotel is great. I didn't expect such nice decor. It is European style, which is much nicer than just some ordinary style of decor. It's a real bonus to get a free cooked breakfast everyday as well. Would definitely recommend this to anyone. Quite close to Disneyland as well. I also expected this to cost much more.

Stayed for 2 nights. Close to Disney and across the street from Honda centre where we saw the ducks. Stayed on top floor and no road noise. Staff very friendly. Rooms well appointed even if I didn't quite get the European boutique style. Nice pool area which the kids enjoyed. Managers reception was a welcome surprise with free beer and nibbles for an hour. Breakfast was the best we had on a two week road trip. Wifi worked well in the room and sufficient speed to download video, use FaceTime etc.
All in all a great hotel. Would definitely recommend and return!

Picked this hotel based on reviews which were more than confirmed by our experience. Four-night stay included two days in D-land. The location by the highway made it convenient for our other destinations in area, including some college visits. One important caveat about location: find out what is going on at the Honda Center across the street during your visit. We were surprised by a Rihanna concert that made the otherwise ten-minute drive back to hotel from Disneyland into a more than one hour ordeal. I fault the City of Anaheim for not managing traffic better, but it's something to be aware of if you stay here.
We especially enjoyed the ample size of our room and the smart arrangement of facilities so that one person could shower, another could use the vanity sink, and another could make coffee at the kitchenette sink or apply sunscreen at the extra mirror there, all in privacy. Beds were comfortable, sound insulation good, air conditioning efficient, and everything clean and attractive. Everyone from front desk staff to breakfast cooks was friendly and helpful. The included parking, internet access, and full hot breakfast make this a great value especially compared to some other hotels in the area.

Room Tip: Just ask--the front desk was happy to explain the advantages of different rooms. We chose quiet over...
