"Great Disney Area Hotel"

This was a great stay with my girls - ages 5 and 7 - they loved the amazing view of the hotel and the kid friendly pool area! Check in was a little slow because they had a full house as they host a lot of convention goers but the hotel had plenty to see and do while waiting. I was able to grab a Starbucks and the girls enjoyed touring all the Christmas trees set up in the lobby. We made a little game out of voting for the best.

Once in the room we were delighted with the view  - it was like we were floating over Disneyland! It had a perfect view for fireworks and you could even see the castle! We decided to walk down to the park which wasn't far but it was November in SoCal which means it was hot! I recommend taking the shuttle from the Toy Story Parking lot just across the street from the hotel.

The breakfast buffet was great but I highly recommend making a reservation the night before - our wait wasn't long but because there were so many people from the convention it was difficult to keep my kids in the line while we waited. The buffet offered the usual American and Continental offering but as a bonus hot items like waffles and french toast were made to order from the table! A note: there is not bathroom in the dining area so have your children plan ahead, otherwise you will be exiting the restaurant mid-meal to use the lobby restroom.

The pool was great! It was heated and we were able to enjoy a swim at 9 am! The two spas were large and great for the kids - we were able to enjoy the warm water and not bother the adult guests. The kid splash park didn't open until 10 am so we missed it but it looked very fun!

Overall, we had a great time! It was a very good location for Disney, kids were clearly kept in mind when planning the hotel, and it was very relaxing!

Disclosure: I received a night stay in order to complete the review however, all opinions are my own.

"A GREAT STAY NEAR DISNEYLAND!"

I was nervous when I first walked into the Hilton Anaheim.  The lobby was crawling with dental conference attendees --- they were EVERYWHERE!  Let me tell you, with exception of video gamers, no conference attendees are crazier than dentists and their staff.  It had me worried that this hotel catered more to business travelers than families. I'm happy to say, I was wrong!

THE ROOMS
Spacious and perfectly able to accommodate families, our room had the following amenities that we found particularly useful during our stay:

- In room refrigerator
- Fold out couch as well as a bed
- Gourmet coffee makers

EXTRA PERK:  View of the Disney California Adventure

THE POOL
This is where I knew I'd arrived at a family-friendly venue. My son's eyes lit up when he saw the kids play area at this pool.  A collection of climbing choices, a slide, and a row of noise making activities ---- and water rushing out of every angle and occasionally being poured over the top.  

In the area, there is also one main pool and two hot tubs as well.  It's also possible to food and drink service out there.  The pool provided a great Disneyland break in the middle of the day.

OTHER THOUGHTS & TIPS:
- Self park:  It's pretty affordable
- Using your breakfast vouchers:  This was the first time my family did not use our Hilton breakfast vouchers.  Remember those dental conference attendees? I think they were able to keep those long hours because they were up early fueling up on a good breakfast!  The line was so long, I'm pretty certain it would have been about a 90 minute wait to get into the restaurant.  Since we were already facing a day of long lines at Disney so we opted to skip it.  As we checked out though, we did use our vouchers at Starbucks to get caffeinated before hitting the road.
- Other eating options: a poolside lounge, a food court off the lobby, and Starbucks

"Great Place for Families- even small kids!"

We stayed at the Hilton with our 3 small children (5,3, and 10mos). We had a wonderful queen suite that was more than enough space for us, our luggage, double stroller, and room to spare. The kids pool was great, although we only went during the late afternoon since we were in the park all day.
The breakfast buffet was delicious and well worth the money. Our kids ate free and had a wide variety of options to choose from.
If not staying on property, this is a great alternative!

"Great location & amenities"

The Hilton Anaheim is a massive property. 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.

"Meh..."

I stayed here with my husband (then boyfriend) on two separate occasions.  On one occasion we upgraded to corner, Disney facing, concierge level room.  Upon arrival, and after waiting an hour to check-in due to computer problems, our reservation was wrong.  We were supposed to be on the top floor and were placed instead on another floor.  On another occasion we had a standard room.  

The hotel overall is fine, but for the price you can get a much larger, newer and better equipped room somewhere else nearby.  I didn't make use of any child amenities, but I do remember that their gym required an extra charge and minimum age of 18.

"Beautiful, relaxing and great service!"

We stayed here for a work conference, but decided to turn it into a belated honeymoon.  The staff sent up complimentary wine and chocolates for us since we mentioned it was a special getaway.  This stay was one of the most relaxing of our lives.  Our room was huge and gorgeous, and the lighted entry is breathtaking at nighttime.  We would go outside and sit just outside the hotel and stare at the palm trees laughing at how our friends in the midwest were stuck inside from snow.  We can't wait to go back someday.  You will not be disappointed!  Oh and the concierge was very helpful, getting us tickets for several things and calling restaurants.  We felt so fancy!
