This hotel really exceeded my expectations. I had given up on ES because so many we had stayed at were old and noisy. But my husband had frequent stay points which allowed us to stay here free for 5 days for a family of 6. Naturally, I couldn't turn it down.
Turns out, we really liked it and were very satisfied with the hotel. The room was clean and roomy, the beds comfortable and the bathroom very clean, with plenty of big fluffy towels. Good internet connection, too. We really enjoyed the cook to order breakfast (free!). So much excellent food. They even had different specials every day, fresh fruit and great service. Each of my kids had several plates each morning, and the staff kept cheerfully picking up the plates. The parking felt very safe in an enclosed parking garage behind the hotel. (Parking is generally 15 dollars, but was free for HH diamond members) All of the staff we encountered were friendly and professional.
My biggest worry was noise. This is a typical Embassy Suites with the rooms surrounding an indoor atrium and yes, you can hear some noise in the living room area of your suite. The doors do not seal perfectly. But it was less noisy than I expected, and with the connecting door closed, the back bedroom was remarkably quiet. Also, we stayed primarily during the week and the majority of guests seemed to be business related travelers, not a lot of running and screaming kids and teenagers at night. At breakfast, my kids seemed to be the only children around until the weekend. Having been at Disneyland all day with huge crowds, the hotel became our quiet oasis away from the craziness. We were able to reach Disneyland easily in less than 20 minutes (using the car pool lanes) As a bonus, my twin daughters loved the aquarium (and the lights were turned off to the aquarium at night)
We will definitely stay here again!
