Bunk beds in the signature kids' suites add an element of fun for children, while businesspeople can book a stay in the deluxe rooms. These come with a desk, free Wi-Fi, and use of the on-site business center. Fill up on eggs, sausages, fresh fruit, cereals, waffles and coffee at the complimentary breakfast buffet in the Palms Room, before heading to the nearby theme parks, or dipping your toes in the heated outdoor pool.

Disney trip

Location was excellent with a simple walk to the main gates. Hot breakfast was buffet-style and included scrambled eggs, toast, waffles, sausage, cereals, fruits, oatmeal, toast, pastries. It was not a 4star meal but considering it was in the hotel and included in the stay, it was definitely acceptable. Staff was very friendly and helpful throughout. Coffee shop and drugstore across the street were a plus. There were also many restaurants within walking distance. Would definitely stay here again.

Great location

We stayed here due to the proximity to Disney Land. At the time, had a four year old and a one year old. It was about a 15-20 minute walk to the main Disney Land entrance area. There are some restaurants along the way that we stopped at for dinner. The pool area doesn't have a roof so it was kind of cold. We only used the pool once. The breakfast area is located in an odd location. You have to go upstairs and walk clear to the back of the building. The breakfast itself was just okay - nothing too fancy.

Hotel was a good value but much further from the Disneyland entrance then I was led to believe. Yes it is next to Disneyland however not to the actual entrance.

Disney Trip!

We have stayed here many times! It's a great location to Disneyland Park, just a quick walk up the street. With yummy local food just across the street (Pizza, Tacos, and a Subway) My only complaint would be that the breakfast menu needs some help.. There is always enough for everyone. Its just that it needs a little life put into it. More Fresh and I mean fresh ripe fruit would be a great start. And yes we would stay here again and again. After all Denny's is up the street for those who are picky eaters!
