Accommodations Review:

The hotel is all-suites, which is something to account for when pricing the hotel. The rooms are adequate, clean, and comfortable for a family of four, although on this trip, we were a family of seven, three adults and four children, 9,7,2 and 2. The decor is cherry woods and deep greens. Two full beds, a full sofa bed in the other room gave plenty of sleeping room.

Two televisions, one in each room was great, for watching Disney channel on one and the news on the other. HBO and cable. There were also order-by-TV services such as video games.

The bathroom housed the toilet and bathtub/shower, while a vanity area was in the bed-room. Hairdryer, iron and board, coffeemaker, fridge, microwave are standard in the rooms.

The bedroom is in the front, while the living room is towards the back, and they are separated by a curtain and sliding French doors. There was an open space at the entrance of the room which was large enough to park an open stroller with room to spare so that it could dry overnight. Views are of the hotel next door and it's parking lot to the north, with a glimpse of Matterhorn, DCA, Space Mountain, and Katella Ave and the car rental facility next door to the South.

Rate/Night (for your stay):

$79.99 online at travelnow.com

Restaurant/Lounge Review:

The hotel offers complimentary hot breakfast buffet, and is open from 6:30AM to about 10 or 11. Offered were: scrambled eggs, sausages, hashed brown triangles, fresh and canned fruits, muffins, Danishes, doughnuts, toast, English muffins, bagels, French toast, assortment of cold cereals, milk, orange and apple juices, sodas, hot chocolate, brewed coffee and decaf. I think I remembered everything. The breakfast is all you can eat and you can take trays to your room to enjoy at your leisure. Complimentary USA Today newspapers are offered at the breakfast room. It is on the second floor.

Amenities / Facilities / Activities Available:

Sundries Shop, Pool, Hot Tub, Hair Dryer, Laundry, In-room Safe, Concierge, Complimentary Airport Shuttle, Handicapped Accessible Rooms Available, Non-Smoking Rooms Available, Smoke Detectors, Fire Sprinklers.

Pool Description/Comments:

Pool was clean and inviting, with a supply of towels close at hand. Jacuzzi was great for tired, cold grownups at the end of the day. Pool is heated.

Other Comments:

Our kids prefer to stay at Hawthorn now, instead of the Disneyland hotel. They really seem to have a great time, and the built-in breakfast is convenient and adds value to the hotel for us. Also great for larger parties of travelers. We find ourselves coming back again and again. Also, we prefer the hotel feel rather than the motels on Harbor Blvd. Security is good, as you must use your room key to access the building, including the elevators. Room keys are electronic card types.
