Hilton Garden Inn Anaheim/Garden Grove
Ranked #5 of 19 Hotels in Garden Grove
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 21, 2006

I stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn in Anaheim/Garden Grove while attending a conference at the Anaheim Convention Center in October 2006. I had a business rate of $125 per night, which included the breakfast.

As other reviews have noted, the Garden Inn is situated around a parking area shared by two other Hilton properties, the Embassy Suites and Hampton Inn. While all of the hotels looked nice, I selected the Garden Inn based on Trip Advisor recommendations and because it caters more to the business traveler.

The property was nicely appointed and still had a somewhat new feel to it. The room was fairly standard with two queen beds, a desk and desk chair, and extra overstuffed chair. The room included a mini fridge, microwave oven, and coffee pot. I was on the sixth floor toward the end of the hall, and it was extremely quiet. I did not hear any noise from outside, the hall, or other rooms the entire time I was there. Internet service was free and both the wired and wireless service was excellent.

I was disappointed by the workout facility. There were three pieces of equipment, a treadmill that worked but was old and beat up, a weight machine that was partially broken, and an excise bike thing that I did not use. The pool area looked nice. I did look at the exercise room at the Embassy, and they had several treadmills and elliptical machines, but no weight machines.

The full cook to order breakfast at the hotel was excellent and quick.

All of the employees I dealt with were very nice, though not overly knowledgeable about some basic items such as shuttles and directions.

I would recommend taking note of the location. If you have a car the hotel is a very short drive to the convention center and the Disney parks. I had done a lot of research and knew what to expect, but if you do not have a car (I did not) it is a good 20 minute walk to the convention center and probably 35 minutes to the Disney parks. There is some type of Disney shuttle (for a fee), but I did not use the service.

The entire area of Harbor from just south of Chapman to north of the Disney parks is pretty much devoted to tourist. However, once you go south of Orangewood, or if you cross to the west side of Harbor, or if you venture into the surrounding neighborhoods you will find a lot of non tourist pedestrian traffic. I walked and jogged in these areas quiet a bit to see things like the Crystal Cathedral and ‘The Block’ shopping area, but I would have been uncomfortable having my wife walk alone in those areas.

Tip: If you are walking to the convention center, there is a small shortcut through the northwest corner of the Courtyard Marriott parking lot that will allow you to cut through to the big Marriott parking lot and then on to the convention center. It saves a few steps.

I am a golfer and found a great promotion through H.G. inn. The rate was $100 with tax per night on a Saturday night. It was clean, easy to find, great parking, kids loved it, we liked it because it had a fridge, microwave, and Wireless internet. It was a great place! Now, I get to go golfing for free, with a buddy, and it was just because I stayed at a Hilton Gardenn inn. Great place!

After a long drive from South San Francisco, it was nice to come into the air conditioned lobby. Checking in was less than 5 minutes. Was able to get the 1st floor (she offered it right away). Attendant was very nice and I appreciated the fact she acknowledged my kids when they said "Hi". Room was comfortable. No problems with A/C. Glad they had a fridge to store milk and a microwave to warm my daughter's bottles. Internet hookup not an issue (connection was always stable). Pool was fine (best to go between 5 - 7 when everyone is at dinner, but never really saw it crowded during our stay). Wished the jaccuzi jets would stay on past 10pm. Breakfasts were fine. Cheaper to go to Denny's or IHOP, but you can't beat the convenience of it being in the lobby. Parking is tight if you come back after 9pm. Have to catch the shuttle next door. Wished the gym opened up earlier than 6am (wanted to get a workout, but eating was more the priority if you wanted to catch the early shuttle before Disneyland opened at 8am). Easy automated checkout. Would stay here again.

Great location for theme parks. However, if you plan do visit Hollywood, Universal or the northwestern beach cities e.g. Santa Monica then expect at least an hour's drive through the manic LA traffic.
Rooms were very clean a good size & excellent value for money.
The pool area is small albeit great for a quick dip after a day out.
There is no hotel bar, just a small gift shop selling beer / wine.
The Hyatt is right next door & given the rates were very similar when i was booking, would definately pay a little extra for the Hyatt next time.

I found the Hilton Garden Inn Anaheim/Garden Grove through this site and stayed there for a 7 days while on business during April. The staff were extremely friendly and welcoming - offering advice on places to eat locally and responding to any queries promptly. The room I had was facing Harbor Bvld (overlooking the pool) and had two queen beds + kitchenette and a good standard bathroom. The complimentary broadband was great, I just plugged the cable into my NZ laptop and I was away. The daily room service was of a high quality and the laundry facilities in the hotel were ok, perhaps a little old but then you can't expect too much from a hotel. I didn't have breakfast at the hotel but did use the food delivery service which was convenient (no room service). The location is pretty sweet, 3 minutes from Disneyland and with access to the freeways not much more. Food and supermarket facilities are also close-by. Overall, well worth the US $115 a night.

Okay...my family and I stayed at this hotel only one night to visit Disneyland California Adventures. Upon arrival, the staff was not friendly, but not rude either. The room that we were given smelled like mold the minute we opened the door as it appeared that the air conditioner had not been on in days. I requested another room, which the hotel manager gladly accomodated. This room was much better, the air conditioner was on and the room was free of any smells. Once in that new room, our stay was average. We got what we paid for at $119.00 for the night.

The plusses were free parking and within minutes of Disney. Although we drove our car, the shuttle runs from the neighboring hotel, for a fee.
