We stayed at the Hotel Indigo in Anaheim for the reason that it was the only hotel that only had 4* and 5* on trip advisor and I wondered why. Well now I know. The taxi driver from Long Beach was not familiar with this hotel so you would be advised to have the actual address with you. On arrival we were greeted by very friendly check in offering local information, maps, services, etc etc. He was very amenable and knew the answers to all our questions. We had booked two rooms, a family room and a double queen. We were not able to get them connecting as the family rooms do not connect. This seems a misnoma to me as if you have small children you want the connecting room and not a family room. We had another room across the hall and as our kids are 11,15 18 this was not really a problem. The one way see though elevator was very cool and arrived promptly. The rooms are not near the elevators and so this is great as our room was next to the elevator but you could not hear anything. The kids room was on the pool side of the hotel with a view of the fireworks from Disney, again you would want this in the family rooms! The rooms were very well appointed with hardwood floors, rugs, soft close drawers and doors and wonderful lighting, flat screen tv's, a mini fridge. low entry shower with overhead and hand held, Aveda products in the bathroom and a sofa bed in the family room. The DQ room had a kind of sleeper chair. The bed linens were 1st class and the beds on a total par with the Westin bed. My main complaint was the towels were skimpy in both size and texture, both in the rooms and at the pool. Also I would have liked a microwave and robes in the rooms. We paid about $160 per night per room. The pool was adequate but small and so was the hot tub, The poolside loungers and cabanas were excellent. We did not use the gym but it looked small but well stocked. We did not use the bar or bistro but there were a lot of choices. Overall this was an excellent hotel. They also stored our luggage on check out. There was a safe in each room for free as well. Keurig coffee maker. I would definitely stay here again. About a 10 minute walk to Disney with lots of local shops and restaurants nearby. Bus stop is a 2 minute walk. Excellent housekeeping.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the firework side if you want to put the kids to bed early. Family rooms are comfo...

Stayed here during a holiday to visit Disneyland. The location was great as it was within walking distance both there and back. The free parking added to the value of the price of the stay. The hotel was very clean, and the dancing light show at the entrance was delightful. The staff were extremely accommodating, friendly, sincere and always ready to be at service for any questions or inquiries. The rooms are nicely laid out, and the beds are very comfortable. Would absolutely recommend this hotel!

We went as a family of four to Disneyland and blocked this hotel after reading reviews. As everyone has said before, the staff, the location, the food (breakfast) are all just great. It is a little walk to the theme park but not bad at all and we didn't once take the shuttle. The free parking is great so we could drive out in the afternoon for some outside lunch if we wanted or just went to the next door mall for food at California PIzza Kitchen or PF Changs. the staff actually does help with warming up your food etc and that came real handy with my kids milk or some left overs. On the last day, we asked for a slightly late check out and they accommodated us plus let us keep our car parked there till end of day. We also used their laundry facility as we were heading to the beach after this and didn't want to lug all our dirty laundry (no pun intended).

A special shout out to Khalil and Victor- both were wonderful to work with and welcomed us warmly. would stay again if we were to go back

This is a wonderful hotel that deserves its high ratings among Disneyland hotels. We are very particular and make a big effort to select hotels and excellent ones like this one pay off our efforts. The beds are the best you can find anywhere and they, the wood floors, and the bathrooms are characteristic of hotels we have been forced to stay in (due to poor alternatives) that cost two or three times as much. Don't be discouraged by the cheapy exterior and lobby design as they do not reflect the rooms. The nice hot breakfast was a great bonus and the staff is excellent.

Room Tip: third or fourth floors are quiet

This is a great hotel to bring the family. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The rooms are very nice and the bed is very comfortable. Plenty of places to sit and talk with comfortable seating. Disneyland entrance is within easy walking distance. Just a great all around vacation home.

Stayed here with my family (used Mileage Plus points) for our Spring Break Disneyland trip. I had read the reviews here so I knew pretty much what to expect. The rooms are a bit on the small side, but with new furnishings and comfortable beds. We appreciate queen size beds - 4 adult sized people do not fit in double beds! The bathroom is very contemporary and has lots of counter space. Of course I would prefer a separate sink/mirror area - so someone can shower while someone else is getting ready, but we survived. We ate breakfast once at the little dining space in the lobby (I wouldn't call it a restaurant exactly) and it was fine but a little pricey. In fact ALL breakfast places in the area are very pricey! 4 of us had breakfast at the IHOP down the street and it was $65 plus tip! I realize it's a resort area but still. So all in all we really enjoyed our stay in Anaheim. Thumbs up for the Hotel Indigo!

Thank you so much for staying with us and look forward to having you as our guests on your next trip out to Anaheim!
