To be fair - you cannot beat the location of this hotel. Literally out one door to the hotel is the California Adventures Theme Park. Out another door is Downtown Disney, which has a monorail on one end that takes you to Disneyland and walking the other direction is the main entrances to the theme parks. The facility has been updated in the "Greene & Greene" funituremakers theme. I'm not sure of the connection to these folks - I might have picked another style as the facility, while clean, is awfully dark.
Aside from that, I found most things to be average or slightly above. We stayed on the Concierge-Level, just as we do at all the properties in Florida. I'd rank this experience as lower than any of the similar experiences in FL. The hotel has an odd configuration, reminding me of an old motel, rather than a grand hotel. Also, the parks and property are crazy-busy.
Loved the location - the property is overpriced otherwise and is generally average in most other categories.
