As such, there are amenities galore for everyone in the family. It is the largest hotel in Orange County with 1,572 rooms. Conveniently located next to the Anaheim Convention Center, the hotel is about 10-15 minutes walking distance to the Disneyland Resort. THINGS WE LOVED * amazing amenities * lots of food choices * super-fun water play area on the pool deck * awesome service * excellent location THINGS WE DIDN’T LOVE * the Hilton Anaheim charges you for several of the same amenities that you can get for free or for less at other hotels in the area * the rooms are a bit smaller and lack storage SO MUCH TO SEE & EXCELLENT SERVICE The lobby is huge with an inviting cocktail lounge, ATM, UPS Store, 24-hour business center, concierge station, dedicated Disney desk, and rental car desk. Downstairs hosts a Laundromat, salon & 25,000 square foot fitness center with steam rooms, saunas, classes (Zumba, Yoga, Piloxi & Cycling) and a full-service spa offering massages, facials, body treatments, manicures & pedicures. The service was impeccable, from Ann-Marie at the check-in desk, to Keith, the Concierge. Everybody went out of their way to be helpful and professional. When we checked in, we asked for a corkscrew to be delivered to our room, as we had brought some wine with us. It actually beat us to the room! Inside, we were greeted by a lovely welcome gift of the most insanely delicious cookies, a fruit basket, an array of waters & sodas, tickets to the breakfast buffet and even a Tinkerbell backpack and water bottle for my daughter! COMFORTABLE ROOMS, ALTHOUGH A BIT ON THE SMALL SIDE We had a 2 queen bed room with a Disney view. Where we were situated on the 14th floor, we were mainly overlooking the pool deck and had a view of the back part of California Adventure. So, if you’re paying extra with the hopes of seeing the fireworks from your room, be sure to clarify that when you check in. The floor-to-ceiling windows are a nice touch & maximize your view while making the room feel larger. The room went for $119 a night in early March. The non-Disney view rooms were $109 a night. The rooms appear to have been recently renovated. They have been done in earthy, modern color tones which are very appealing. The bathrooms are small, but have nice Koehler fixtures and large sinks. The duvet covers and pillows are to-die-for comfortable. The beds are a little hard, though. The main complaint I have about the rooms is the lack of storage and seating. Other than the desk chair, there was a small sitting chair and nothing else. If there are more than two people staying in the room, you run out of chairs. For storage, there was a smallish closet that was already about 50% full with extra bed linens and a safe, two dresser drawers and a couple of shelves on the nightstand. Again, larger families (we had three people) would find it cramped. PRICEY PARKING Valet parking cost us $22 a night, plus tips. Self-parking is $16 a night. There is a shuttle to Disneyland, but it will run you $4 per adult and $1 per child. Other hotels in the area provide free Disney shuttles and less expensive self-parking. DINING OPTIONS TO PLEASE EVERYONE There are several dining options at the hotel. The Mix Restaurant and Lounge is a pleasant sit down option. It is decorated in the same modern, earthy style of the guest rooms. Kids staying at the hotel eat free, which is a nice little $7 savings. The kid’s menu is quite large with the usual fare as well as healthier options like grilled chicken & veggies and a kid’s chef’s salad. The food is priced as you would expect at a hotel. We shared a nice California Cheese Tray ($16) and absolutely delicious Caprese salad ($9). I had Saffron Parpadelle for $16, which was a little overcooked. My husband had a Mushroom Burger for $15 that he said was delicious. Heracio kept bringing my daughter fresh a glass of lemonade every time we turned around and the service was very nice. In addition to the Mix, there is a food court on site that offers Baja Fresh, Sbarro, Submarina and Just Grillin’. There is also a full-service Starbucks in the lobby, which is an awesome choice for a cheaper breakfast on your way to Disneyland. Finally, there is a grill located on the pool deck that offers tropical cocktails, smoothies, sandwiches & burgers. However, it is seasonal and closes the end of September for the fall/winter. We had the breakfast buffet at the Mix on Sunday morning. The buffet runs $23 a person. It has eggs, bacon, sausage, a pastry & cereal station, yogurt & fruit, an oatmeal station with trimmings, a fresh omelet station, and you get unlimited pancakes, French toast or waffles delivered to your table by your waiter. SPECTACULAR POOL DECK & WATER PLAY AREA The pool deck on the 5th floor is awesome. There is a heated pool, 2 Jacuzzis, sundecks, 3 fire pits, a towel stand and the most amazing water play area for the kids. The water play area is fully fenced in within the fenced in pool area so that the adults can lounge on a deck chair poolside while the kids play on the mini waterslide & get drenched by the huge bucket of water that fills up & dumps on the kids at intervals. We had a really hard time getting our daughter out of the play area! Overall, the Hilton Anaheim is a good pick if you do your homework and get a good deal. *This review is based on a two-night complimentary stay at the Hilton Anaheim. I received no other compensation besides the room, breakfast and a welcome gift and the hotel did not state any requirements that I express a particular point of view.
