I have stayed at the Hilton in Anaheim on both business and pleasure. On most business trips I get put on the executive level, and have access to the lounge. Next to the Grand Californian, this is one of the best properties in the Disneyland area.
Although, my most recent trip was a little less that what I expected. The other family I was traveling with was on a pretty tight budget, so we bid $45 on priceline and we got the Hilton. Unfortunately, they put us on the ground level of the courtyard, not so idea. As a person with somewhat of an OCD about personal security; the large glass door really bothered me.
-There used to be that gate to the Lion King parking lot on Kattella Ave. This no longer exists, so you must either walk down Harbor to the main gate, or down Kattella to Disney Way, and walk to the Grand Californian.
-Getting to rooms that are in the far wings can be challenging due to the elevators being located in the center of the building.More
