We stayed here for six nights recently. We have two children (11 and 7) so wanted to be able to put them to bed and still watch a movie in the evening.
On the down side there are no changing rooms at the pool and so although you were asked to leave the pool towels at the pool we had to take them and damp children back to the room. The kitchenette was basic with a sink, microwave and small fridge but no cutlery or crockery (or corkscrew!) at all. The coffee machine was awful. The Saturday night that we arrived there was a function at the hotel and the sound did travel up through the atrium to our room. The other nights we could not hear any noise. We also had some nights on Hilton Honours points and had fun trying to check back in for our paid nights when the key card did not work to get back into the room to get the passport that we had already produced on original check in. This was easily sorted tho'.
On the plus side, it is very good value once you count in the managers reception (lovely staff) and complimentary breakfast - good choice and endless supply. We used room service and the restaurant and both were great. The staff were really friendly. The atrium turtles and fish had the children mesmerised. The position is good, very near to the freeway. Disney took about 25minutes but the other attractions on the north of the city took longer than the sat nav expected due to the dreadful LA traffic. So bear that in mind. There are loads of fast food places within a five minutes walk. The rooms were clean and having a balcony and being on the top floor is to be recommended. Parking is free and we never had a problem finding a space.
All in all a good family choice, I would stay here again and use other Embassy Suites.
