Where to start. . . this hotel was amazing in every way! We stayed for 4 nights during our visit to Disney Land at the most magical time of year! The entire city was decorated with lights making everything so joyful! The parking lot was large and easy to use. There are temporary and smaller spaces near the hotel entrance, and further back into the single entrance lot were larger spaces for pick-up trucks. The registration processes was very quick and the front desk staff were very kind and helpful! There were bell carts available to take our mega ton of luggage up to the room which was awesome (by the way, we left with twice as much as we brought!). Downstairs across from the elevators the hotel offers a guest laundry, an arcade, and a business center with an ATM. There is a fitness center which is small, but has everything you need to get a complete workout. Outside is a nice pool area with a large pool, a kiddie pool, and a hot tub (which sadly in the cold air was not very hot!). There is also a BBQ area and a tennis court which we did not get to use. Now, to the hotel room! Our group included me, my husband, our two kids (5 and 1 1/2), and my mother, so we booked the kids suite. We were in Rm. 301 which is on the 3rd floor and all the way to the end of the hall with a view overlooking the pool. Upon opening the door we were greeted with the smell of a fresh clean room. I am VERY particular about cleanliness in a hotel (especially after all the talk on TV about bed bugs! Yuck!), and I could not find a single thing to complain about! The door opens into the kitchen area and then on into the living room area which had a TV, club chair and pull-out couch (Which we didn't use). We were surprised to find a fully stocked kitchen (sans food) with a fridge, stove, microwave, and dishwasher. The cupboards were even stocked with dishes so we didn't have to worry about paper and plastic dishes. The desk area was convenient and the internet was easy to hook up to, but rather slow. Off to the left of the main room is the pocket door into the kids room which had a bunk bed, a small table and stools, and a TV. Inside the room was the door and entrance into the kids bathroom. On the left side of the main room was the master bedroom which had a super comfy king sized bed and a large TV, a separate sink/closet area, and then another separate area (with a door) for the toilet and tub. I had trouble finding an accurate description of this hotel before we went, and I was not even positive that the two bedrooms were completely separate. They thankfully were, and each closed off with a door for privacy. The hotel offers a similar room with two single beds instead of the bunk bed, but our kids had tons of fun climbing the ladder! Anther plus to this hotel was the complimentary food! The breakfast buffet was awesome every morning and in the evenings from 5-7 they offered dinner as well! Breakfast included waffles, bagels, cereal, oatmeal, sausage, eggs, hash-browns, scrambled eggs with veggies, juice, soda, coffee, milk, cottage cheese, and fruit if I remembered everything! We only had a chance to eat the dinner once, and it was a baked potato with as many toppings as you can imagine like bacon, cheese, broccoli, olives, chives, sour cream etc. I believe that Disney is within walking distance, but this time of year and as early as we went each morning, we chose to drive (only a few minutes each way). We had bus passes, but my hubby prefers to have more control over his schedule, so that was a waste of money on my part! Oops! Overall, this hotel was exactly what we needed to relax after a long day at Disney. I would absolutely recommend it to my friends, and I can't wait until we can return!
