“This is a great place to stay while visiting Disneyland”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2011

My husband and I stayed 5 days here to celebrate his 50th birthday. The room rates were great and you could walk to both Disney Parks and downtown Disney (no waiting for a shuttle necessary). We cut through the Grand California hotel to enter Downtown Disney, where you could ride the free monorail to "Tomorrowland" inside of Disneyland. So, the location is excellent! Look no further for a place to eat. We don't enjoy fast food, fried food or "cart food" in the park. The Tangerine Restaurant in the Antebella hotel is excellent! Modest prices - great happy hour snacks - we saw many families with small children take advantage of the happy hour selections. There is an adult only pool as well as an all ages pool. The jacuzzi is located by the family pool which we enjoyed each evening. Great way to hear about others travel experiences while here. AJ - our server for many evenings - was so attentive, personable and provided service which exceeded our expectations. In fact, the entire staff did. Breakfasts were awesome - the restaurant opens at 6:30 a.m. so you can have great fresh food and still enter the parks when they open. Many other reviews I read prior to travel mentioned that you could hear your neighbors too well. We found this to be true, but really - Disneyland wears you out young and old - so any neighbor noise was short-lived. We would not hesitate to come back on our next trip.

My family's stay at The Anabella was very nice. The rooms are spacious, clean and well laid out. However, the bathroom could really use an upgrade. The water pressure in the shower was horrible and the fixtures were old and needed repair. The toilet handle leaked and the sink faucet was rusting and loose. Our room also did not have a Do Not Disturb sign so in the morning housekeeping woke us up when we were trying to sleep in from a late night at Disneyland. Another thing that would be nice is if the rooms came with a microwave & refrigerator. With small children drinks and snacks are a must in the room. On a positive note, the staff is wonderful and the hotel is close to everything!

We spent 3 nights at the Disneyland Hotel and decided to stay one more but somewhere less expensive...we made a good choice...everything about the hotel was good.

Clean, Close (to parks) and affordable!

We decided to stay at this hotel, when I opened my iPad to Expedia.com and saw their listed rate was quite affordable. Being that we were visiting Downtown Disney, we decided to drive over to ask if they would honor the online price. They did better than that, they also upgraded our room since it was our first visit to the Anabella Hotel. The room was extremely clean, the shower/tub/bathroom was very nice. Our bed was the most comfortable bed we have ever slept on at a hotel, and we have traveled to the Anaheim area numerous times for Disneyland vacations. This hotel room was much nicer than even the one we could get at Disneyland Hotel, or Paradise Pier. We were amazed by the value. The room was only 1/3 of the cost of a Disney property room, and was much nicer.

This hotel has it all. Friendly and helpful staff, spacious rooms, and beautiful grounds. I recommend the concieges room lots of space with style that is affordable. The location is close to downtown disney, but they also have a great place to grab a bite, Tangerines.

I was there for a cheer competition February 25-27. This was my 15th stay at the Anabella and as always it was wonderful. I had the King double room and it had hardwood floors, flat screen TV's, and a pullout couch, a private patio and was huge!!! They staff was very nice and helpful. The Anabella is in walking distance to the convention center(next door), restaurants and Disneyland. They allowed us to check in early so we could go to Disneyland. The parking lot was very full at the hotel and I had to park far in the rain but that was no fault of the hotel. The restaurant is very good and the staff was so nice. We stay here about 4 times a year and wouldn't stay anywhere else.

This was my second stay at the Anabella. The room was spacious, clean, and comfortable. Overall, it is a nice hotel and I would stay here again, but the service is very inconsistant. For the price paid, I expect better.

The bell staff was outstanding. The front desk staff had difficulty fixing errors on the bill. The food in the Tangerine Grill is good, but the service is slow and has only been OK (6+ meals there).
