We stayed here in Late Sept early October and were on the 6th floor in a kids suite. We were warned about the noise from the fwy and when we walked into the room we were shocked at first, and then after 30 minutes we were used to it. We live in a small country town so are not used to traffic noise and it did not bother us one bit.
Location is excellent, close to everything.
The staff are extremely helpful and friendly. The laundry facility is handy as we were there for 10 nights. The only things is there is no clothes line in the bathroom so bring some rope to tie up on the balcony to use as a line.
The kids loved their own room and tv and bathroom.
The king bed in our room was soooo comfortable.
The wi fi was handy but it was extremely slow on our floor and kept dropping out because we were on the 6th floor. It worked better down by the pool, but there are also 2 macs in reception and you can print out your boarding passes as well for free.
The microwave and fridge are handy as we made sandwiches and had breakfast in the room to save having restaurant food. We ate at Mimis quite a few times and it was quick and easy and we were able to get a nice salad.
We came to this hotel after spending 3 nights at the Disneyland hotel and we should have just stayed at ho jos as the kids loved this hotel and we loved the 2 rooms.
I would definitely recommend this hotel. For your info our children were aged 5 and 7 and didn't get tired walking to and from the hotel to Disneyland or Downtown Disney.
