We stayed here in last year as part of our daughter’s 18th birthday celebration tour of the West coast. Be warned there are two Sheratons in Anaheim and sat navs have been known to get it wrong – it took our taxi driver 20 minutes to find the correct one. From the outside the hotel seems to be a quirky mix of olde England and 70s architecture but who cares about architecture when you are on Disney’s doorstep – and this after all was the reason for our stay? Again with the other hotels on our tour I had emailed them in advance of advise that our stay was part of a birthday celebration and asking for an upgrade. In fact when we booked this hotel we had requested a room which would enable us to view the Disney fireworks. On checking in I was disappointed to discover that that this was not the case. However miraculously after explaining the significance of our stay hey presto we were allocated such a room. Success. And what a view! We had been toying with the idea of going over to Disney even just for a few hours but decided against it. This was probably one of our best decisions as we ordered room service and were able to watch the fireworks in comfy chairs and eating really good food. The room service menu is exactly the same as that served up in its restaurant and at the same price. There is no additional charge for room service. We could not fault the food at all, in fact one of my daughters maintains that it was the best meal of the holiday. She might be exaggerating but I certainly found the chocolate fondant dessert a joy.
Full marks to the reservation clerk who conjured the room up. Whilst my husband always maintains that a hotel room is just a room to lay your head I must confess to liking a nice hotel. And the Sheraton Anaheim certainly is. Our room was spacious and the beds comfortable. Whilst as has been pointed out in previous reviews the bathroom is on the small side the area outside it with hanging space and sideboard makes up for.
Unfortunately as we were only staying two nights I had hardly any time to check out the rest of the facilities but did notice a few little courtyards (in keeping with the English theme) which seemed delightful and would make a nice place to sit after a busy day in the park.
Transport to Disney is provided and of course is greatly in demand, although there is only one bus so demand can be heavy at times.
In short this hotel served its purpose – which was comfy bed for travel weary and disneyed-out folks, excellent food to fill hungry stomachs (reasonably priced) and handy for Disney, with a gold star to the reservation clerk actually went that little bit further for us to make our stay at bit more special.
