“Disappointed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

After staying at a similar property in San Francisco earlier in the week, we had high hopes for this Courtyard but it did not compare to its sister hotel. The check-in staff was not particularly helpful, making a point of telling us that they could not accomodate our request for a high floor away from the elevator, even though we had made our reservation months previous. Our room smelled of its previous occupants in an unpleasant way. Most disappointing was the service at the Bistro, which we had enjoyed in the San Francisco hotel. The staff was poorly trained and service was incredibly slow, in a location where getting out the door to the amusement park is especially important. My daughter even was served an apple that was rotten to the core. The Kids Suite was a nice idea with bunk beds in a partitioned room, but both "areas" were very small and the room was showing wear. Unlike the beds in SF, the beds in this hotel were not that comfortable. I was eager to leave.

Dear Alissa G,

We are greatly disappointed to hear that your stay was less than impressive. We apologize for the inconvenience of not being able to fulfill your request for a high floor away from the elevator. Your patience and understanding is greatly appreciated. Thank you for bringing to our attention the details of the service and fruit you received at The Bistro, as this is not the typical experience at our restaurant. We have immediately followed up on your comments to ensure that this remains an isolated incident. Thank you for your review. It is our hope that you will decide to give us the opportunity in the near future to exceed your expectations.

Best Regards,
Beckley Van Cleave, General Manger

I stay in Anaheim a few times a year at various hotels and had stayed here before with mixed experiences. Was very impressed at the upgrades to the staff and facility this visit. A positive attitude seems common with all the staff now. The maids even said hello to me and smiled. Am planning on staying here on all my trips to Anaheim from now on.

Nice hotel for the price. Friendly and helpful staff, fast check in. The rooms were clean, great location close to Knotts Berry Farm. Breakfast buffet was a nice touch to our busy schedule. We will definately stay here again when we visit Anaheim.

A very nice hotel for the price we paid. Clean rooms, friendly staff, plus we were even surprised by having access to a free continental breakfast each day which we did not know about until we checked in (supposedly due to the newly renovated lobby/restaurant area?). Also free was wi-fi, very nice! Check in was quick and easy and the staff member was very friendly and accommodating. We used the ART bus shuttle to go to and from the Disneyland Resort and the stop was a short walk from the hotel (the stop is in front of the Courtyard Marriott, which is right next door to this hotel). You could probably even walk to the resort from this hotel, but our dogs were barking so we chose the shuttle. For the reasonable price we paid, you can not go wrong at this location.

Dear PHXSports,

Thank you for taking advantage of our great rates and sharing the details of your enjoyable experience with us. It was our pleasure to surprise you with a complimentary continental breakfast to celebrate the completion of our lobby and restaurant renovations! Although it is an easy walk to the Disneyland parks, the Anaheim Resort Transit shuttle certainly does offer a convenient alternative that requires an even shorter walk over to the Anaheim Marriott Hotel for pick up and drop off. Thank you for sharing that you enjoyed our reasonable rates, friendly service and clean accommodations. Come back and see us again on your next visit to California!

Best Regard,
Beckley Van Cleave, General Manager

Rooms are nicely remodeled and very clean. The lobby is currently in the middle of being remodeled and will be very nice when completed. Love the new look that Marriott is giving the Courtyard brand. Front desk was efficient and helpful. Special request for feather-free room had been arranged before our arrival. At other hotels this request is ignored until we arrive at the room and have to call for housekeeping to change our bedding. This hotel is set back from Harbor Blvd. so it's much quieter than some of the others in the Disney area. We walked to and from Disneyland, and although it was a long walk, it was manageable. They also offer transportation to Disney if you do not want to walk. There are also dozens of restaurants in the area within walking distance.

I have been staying out here for the last couple weeks for work and this Marriott is a great place to stay. I would definitely recommend this hotel to other people. The desk staff was friendly and my room was real nice.
