I arrived late --- about 1 a.m. --- and was greeted by a friendly and professional staff member who got me checked in quickly and answered all of my initial questions about the area/hotel.
The room was clean and comfortable and ready for my stay; and, although I didn't use them, there is also a pool and hot tub..couldn't have asked for better, and the per night rate was very acceptable for the location. If you're looking for a good clean room, at a good price, and in a good location, I definitely recommend the Portofino!
Close to local transportation, within walking distance to Disney and Garden Walk, and right beside the Anaheim convention center; there's also an iHOP across the street that is open 24hrs and a 7-11 on the corner at the end of the block. Save some gas money, or forget the car rental altogether and use shuttle service from LAX/Ontario. The Portofino is an excellent alternative to much pricier digs. Other establishments might give you more, but consider the fact you're NOT in Anaheim to hang out in a hotel for a week...if you do, then you're not meant to go on vacation 'til you're ready for one! All you need is a clean comfortable room, customer service with a smile, all in a good location...and the Portofino has this 'in spades!'
Now...the cons: Target is the closest for grocery items and it's a 20min walk. If you're used to the preened, cookie cutter views of suburbia, then you may feel a little less comfortable at this end of town...still it's not really that bad. Remember, you can find problems anywhere, and if you're looking for one it probably will find you.
2nd: There's some construction going on adjacent to the hotel, however the work was only happening during the day. This doesn't make for the best views of the area, but if you do this right, you'll never be around during the day and at night you'll be too tired to nit-pick about things that just don't matter.
Lastly: It never bothered me, but keep in mind, the kids are likely ten times more excited to be there than you...this is the truth of things...it's Disney after all, and that excitement will translate in to some shuffling up and down the halls and some screams and laughter. Just keep in mind all the happy moments we all had as kids and understand that Disney only amplifies it a bit...don't worry, they all eventually get out of the hotel, or go to sleep.
Do not overlook this hotel when planning your Disney vacation or conference!!
