We stayed 10 nights at the Double Tree Suites on 2085 S Harbor Blvd (note there are two Double Tree in Anaheim so it helps to know the address for shuttle bus drivers etc).
After a long flight it was nice to find the check-in process was quick and the chocolate and walnut cookies were as nice as what I read about in other reviews.
We were allocated a room on the 7th floor which had been recently renovated. The layout of the room was such that we had a bedroom we could close off from our daughter who slept on the fold out couch and each room had it's own TV. The bed was comfortable and the room was quiet. When the fireworks were on at Disney (Fri-Sun) we got a good view. Our little fridge in the lounge meant we could stock up on drinks, yoghurt etc from either the 24hr garage just across the road or the snack bar from the lobby. It was also very handy to have a laundry on our floor (think there was also one on level 5) and it cost $2.50 per load, $1.00 for detergent and $2.00 for a dryer, so it meant we could wash all our clothes before we moved to the next city, but don't forget your quarters. The pool area was nice and they had towels available for you to use down there. Our room was serviced daily and the only thing I could fault them on was that they sometimes forgot to replace the sugar that went with the coffee machine and they only gave us two glasses for 3 guests. The Pool is on level 2 along with a small airconditioned fitness room. I was expecting to have to pay for parking which I think was $16 per day and we picked up a car for the last 4 days of our stay, but we were given complimentary parking so that was greatly appreciated.
I enjoyed the location as you could catch the number ART 3 bus outside the hotel or cross the road and catch the 1, 3 (it looped around) and they all went to Disneyland and the bus hub where you could transfer (eg. #16 bus, if you want to go to the Orange Outlet Mall). You need to buy a ticket from reception at the hotel and then validate it on the bus. A pass that lasted 24hrs was $5 per person, which meant you could come back for a swim during the day, take the bus somewhere to dinner etc. We only walked to Disney once, as we were there during a heat wave at the start of September (temps from 36-40c and humid), but it took about 15mins.
There are lots of good eating options not far from the hotel. If you walk out the door and turn right and walk up S Harbor Blvd "Clancy's" has american cusine like chicken pot pie, ribs etc at very reasonable prices, also further up is "Bucca" (an Italian restaurant with family meals) and slightly further up is "Outback" (an Aussie themed restaurant that does steaks at a reasonable price). If it is fast food then turn the same way and about a 2min walk away is Carls Jnr, Taco Bell is slightly further along with Jack in the box on the opposite side of the road. Denny's is directly opposite the hotel and open 24hrs. We tried the hotel restaurant one night and our meal was nice and not too expensive. They sell yoghurt cups with muesli in the lids at the snack bar for about $4, so that was a quick and easy breakfast option. If you forgot anything there is a huge Target store (same direction as restaurants - 12-15 walk or on bus route).
The staff at the hotel were always helpful and friendly and quick to provide anything we needed eg. larger glasses for the room, extra sugar for the coffee machine, quarters for the dryer.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone.
Try to get a room on level 7 facing the towards Disney so you can see the fireworks, failling that a...
