The Anaheim Marriott is a huge three-and-a-half-pearl chain property with a convenient location near Disneyland Park and the Anaheim Convention Center. A free shuttle service is provided for easy park access, or guests can walk to the park in about 20 minutes. This property features a spacious, stylishly updated lobby and restaurant/bar serving California cuisine and craft cocktails. The 997 rooms and suites are a little dated and dark, but feature flat-screen TVs, mini-fridges, and coffeemakers. A Starbucks and Marketplace for light lunches and snacks are on-site. Other features include an outdoor pool, a fitness center, and 23 event rooms. Expect fees for Wi-Fi, parking, and breakfast. As an alternative, the nearby mid-range Courtyard Anaheim Resort/Convention Center has similar rates and amenities, but includes free Wi-Fi.
This Marriott property offers amenities and services typical of the chain, but with a relaxed-chic California vibe. The huge hotel features an eye-catching palm tree-lined entrance. Decor is contemporary and elegant, and the hotel is clean and well maintained throughout. The lobby features stylish low-lying black furniture with cream- and beige-tone accents. Metallic sculptures and bronze columns liven up the space, as does the illuminated honeycomb behind the front desk. A Starbucks and Marketplace serving light lunch are located just off the lobby. Guests also gather at the square-shaped bar inside nFuse restaurant, where light-wood floors and earth-tone furnishings make for an easygoing feeling. Most guests are tourists heading to Disneyland, but there are also many business travelers here.
10 minutes from Disneyland, with a nearby steakhouse
This hotel is located just a 10-minute drive or a 20-minute walk from Disneyland Park. The hotel provides a free shuttle service to the park every half-hour. Fast food restaurants and a steakhouse are located within a few minutes' walking distance. Other nearby attractions include the Nixon Library and Museum (25-minute drive) and, just down the street, the Anaheim Convention Center (three-minute drive). Newport Beach is about a 30- to 45-minute drive from the hotel. Several golf courses are located within a half-hour drive, as well. Long Beach Airport is about 30 minutes by car, and LAX is closer to 50 minutes' drive.
Efficient and clean rooms with plush beds and marble bathrooms
Rooms at this chain hotel are not as modern and sleek as the updated lobby. Decor, typical of the Marriott brand, features a crisp white, beige, and black palette. Accents include ocean photography and zig-zag-pattern pillows on gray armchairs. Rooms have desks and ergonomic chairs, wooden dressers and nightstands, and leather headboards behind comfortable beds made with white down comforters and down and foam pillows. Standard amenities include air-conditioning, flat-screen TVs, mini-fridges, coffeemakers, and free Wi-Fi. Some rooms have small furnished balconies, while Deluxe Rooms add 30 extra square feet of space. One-bedroom suites with two bathrooms are also available. Beige marble bathrooms come with Thann bath products, hairdryers, and have large mirrors and shower/tub combos. Wi-Fi is available for a daily fee.
California cuisine, outdoor pool, and 23 event rooms
The restaurant and bar, nFuse, serves California cuisine along with craft cocktails and an extensive wine list. Buffet and a la carte breakfast options are available for a fee. Room service is also available. The hotel also has a Marketplace for grab-and-go breakfast, snacks, and light lunches, as well as a Starbucks. An on-site Pizza Hut is open on select days only for lunch and dinner. The 24-hour modern fitness center has cardio and weight training equipment. Outside, the heated pool can feel a bit small for the number of guests here. A whirlpool and fire pits are also available to guests. This hotel features a staffed business center and 23 event rooms, the largest of which has a capacity of about 3,600 people, available for weddings and conferences. Wi-Fi is free in the lobby and public areas only. On-site parking incurs a daily fee.
