Anaheim Marriott Suites
Ranked #3 of 19 Hotels in Garden Grove
Reviewed November 5, 2011

I stayed at this hotel for 6 nights on business. I would not recommend it for business travel. It may, however, be okay if you are coming to Anaheim to visit Disneyland with three or four kids in tow. Some quick pros and cons:

Pros
- Relatively inexpensive; because there is so much competition among hotels here, you can get a good rate -- especially if it's not peak Disneyland season
- All rooms are suites, with a bedroom separated from a living room that has its own television, along with small refrigerator
- Small Starbucks on lobby level
- Many restaurants nearby, including several walking distance
- There is a Target across Harbor Blvd (about 5-7 minute walk)

Cons
- Clientele is mostly tourists with kids; often the kids are running down the hotel halls, screaming and being generally annoying
- As one reviewer put it, this hotel is "soulless." The whole area is antispetic. Ten years ago, there was nothing here. Then, Garden Grove decided to capitalize on the proximity to Disney by allowing about a half dozen hotels and all sorts of shopping to be built in this relatively small area. (Great idea for tax revenue to their locality). But there is something barren and commercial...zero charm...
- No WiFi in the rooms (only wireless, which is set up at the desk in the "living room" part of the suite. This is a downer for a business traveler. I like to move around with my laptop, including propping up in bed when I feel like it. Not possible here.
- Some plumbing issues...the drain in the tub is slow to empty, and the toilet doesn't flush with any power...
- While I wouldn't say the room was dirty, there was evidence of neglect...stains on the carpet, a hair stuck to the ceiling in the bathroom...little oversights in cleanliness...

This hotel would be suitable if you are on a budget and coming to visit Disney with a gaggle of kids. It is not however a good place for a business person who wants a little more upscale feel, nor is it suitable for couples.

Stayed: November 2011, traveled on business

I have been frequenting this property for years. Before I moved to OC I would make this my home base when I was working. It is a great full Marriott, it has great freeway access from any freeway in OC, and some of the best restaurants right in the parking lot, with the rest within a mile. And by the rest, I mean the rest.

The property is always clean, the staff are very helpful, and the parking is complimentary. That is pretty rare for any hotel that close to Disneyland.

Now that I live in the OC, I still patronize this hotel whenever family comes to town as a place for them to stay, or whenever we need a weekend away from the house. Rates are the best for any full Marriott in the area, the beds are superb, and the breakfast buffet is great (if not over priced).

If you looking for a place to stay in the OC that is an even better value give the Suites a shot.

This is a great family-friendly hotel. The breakfast is good and worth the price when included with the room. The rooms are spacious and fit a family of four very comfortably. The shuttle to Disneyland is right outside the hotel and so easy to use.

Room Tip: Several restaurants within walking distance. Target across the street.

I needed a week away from work. I finally had a hotel that respected my DND. When I needed my room serviced there were complications. I felt at home everyone was friendly. Ill be coming here more often for getaways.

We chose this hotel because #1, it had 1-BR suites (my mother came along for this trip and we WERE NOT about to share an actual room with her); #2, it was incredibly affordable compared to all the hotels around Disneyland itself; #3, parking is FREE; #4, Disneyland is only a short drive away, or you can take the Anaheim Resort Transit (we didn't, but my brother did and said it was easy).

We were incredibly impressed and pleased with our choice. Check-in and check-out were quick and easy. The staff was very nice. The rooms were a nice size. I loved the ceiling to floor windows that started from the middle of the living room area and took up one wall of the bedroom.
The bathroom was a decent size, more long than square, but still a decent size. And it could be accessed from the living room AND the bedroom, which was a nice feature. The only thing was that the sink area didn't have a door to shut from the bedroom.

The bed was very comfortable and the room was clean. The couch pulled out to a bed, and my mom thought it was comfortable enough.

I really loved it. And my 2-1/2 year old son loved being able to run around the whole room, through all the doors from the bathroom through the bedroom to the living room.

This will be our choice for future visits to Disneyland. No doubt about it. The location was nice. A Target across the street, several restaurants around the area, and a Starbucks downstairs in the lobby! Who could ask for more?

I stayed at the Marriott Suites Anaheim while attending a conference at Disneyland. I chose this hotel instead of the Disneyland Hotel where the conference was at because the price was more reasonable. I was able to get a rate of $109/night - which is available if you stay more than 7 nights (I was actually there for 9). The hotel is located in the resort district of Anaheim - which means that there is a shuttle service every 20 minutes around the area and including to Disneyland (where my conference was at) for $4/day. The machine to purchase tickets is right at the hotel, as well as the bus stop. The hotel is very modern with great service from the desk agents and concierge. My room was definitely more that I expected. It was a 1 bedroom king bed suite, which had a separate sleeping area with French doors separating it from the living room. Both areas had their own TV. Room temperature was controlled by a digital thermostat. My room on the 14th floor had a beautiful view, with huge windows. The room itself was very modern and updated, and the bed was very comfortable. The hotel has an outdoor pool and hot tub which was nice after a long day, a games room, two fitness rooms, and laundry facilities. There was a business center and wired internet in the rooms, however you have to pay extra for these. But the hotel did offer free wireless internet in the lobby - you just had to ask for the password from the front desk. Parking is free though it can be difficult to find a spot on weekends. But there is always the option of having you car parked by a valet. The restaurant was nothing great - had the usual assortment of meal options. Selection was somewhat restricted when you are staying for long periods of time. Food was good, however there is an automatic gratuity added for room service. Disneyland has a desk in the hotel lobby with excellent staff to help plan trips to the two Disneyland parks. The staff there were very helpful since the whole experience can be overwhelming. I would definitely recommend this hotel for both families and business travelers - expecially if you are planning to stay for a long period of time!

Room Tip: Higher floor rooms provide a better view.

This is exactly the kind of vacation that people blog about... everything that could've gone wrong seemed to go wrong. We didn't get there on time, our reservation was deleted from the system, etc, etc. At every turn where something went wrong however, the staff at this wonderful hotel was there to make it right in an expeditious manner. It was almost as if we didn't have any problems at all. I was very impressed.

Would I recommend to my friends? In a heartbeat.
Would I stay here again? Every time, even for a little extra cash...
