What is the best building to stay in at Howard Johnson Hotel

We are going to Disneyland in June 09 and have booked at the Howard Johnson Anaheim. There are quite a few comments on TripAdvisor about requesting to stay in a room away from the freeway to avoid noise - what building is the best one to request to stay in? Which building has the best views of Disneyland and fireworks? Is it likely that the hotel will assist us with our request for a particular room? Thanks

It depends.

I like both Tower 1 (large building next to the lobby area), but it is the one that if your room faces the freeway can be a bit noisy.

The Premium Disney view rooms are in Tower 1, and usually HoJo's gives me a room in one of them.

I also like Tower 2, it is the one in the back overlooking the pool area. The Tower is designed with an interior hallway, so there are multiple walls and a sound barrier between the freeway your room. The rooms seem a bit bigger than Tower 1.

I have never stayed in the smaller 2 story buildings, but they look nice.

I was just there in early Dec. The Premium Disney View Rooms are in Building 1 from floors 3-7. We stayed on Floor 7 and had rooms 1705, 1707, 1711. 1705 and 1711 had better views that 1707. You can see the Matterhorn, the Monorail, Tower of Terror (DCA), and the Pirate Cove Water Play Area(hotel). The nightly fireworks were incredible from our rooms. They would be even more amazing from the hotel's jacuzzi, but we did not get the chance to watch them from there.

The Freeway rooms are located on the back of Building 2.

This is the hotel's discussion board and it has a lot of great information and describes each room and location on the property.

There is also a hotel map available to see the property lay-out

Once again, the Freeway rooms are in Building 1.

The way the building is designed, there is a central corridor. The odd number rooms are the ones that face west towards Disneyland. The even number ones face East and overlook the freeway.

zoom in on this area and you can see where the freeway is located with regards to the buildings...

maps.google.co.uk/maps?sourceid=navclient&hl=en-GB&rlz=1T4HPEB_en-GBGB260GB261&q=w+manchester + ave+anaheim&um=1&ie=UTF-8&split=0&sa=X&oi=geocode_result&resnum=1&ct=image

You can also see on here the areas of the buildings that may give you a view of disney.

(delete the spaces after 'manchester' leaving the + and before 'ave' had to put a space in because was thinking it was a word exceeding 140 characters)
