Doubletree Guest Suites Anaheim Resort

This Doubletree been a great stay for us and our grandkids.

Since we're Hilton Diamonds (at least Kathy is), we like to think we know something about hotels and this one has proven to be absolutely first-rate. The employees are without exception friendly and helpful, our suite itself has been clean, comfortable, and spacious, and the breakfast buffet is terrific. The pool and hot tub provided a pleasant oasis for us to cool off after a hot morning of traversing Disneyland.

The restaurant is a pleasant surprise, and we've eaten here most nights. The food is first-rate and reasonably priced, tired grandparents can order a glass of beer or wine with their meals, and kids eat free. We had the same server, Joel, every evening but one, and he is not only good at his job but great with younger people. The folks at the excellent morning buffet have been equally hospitable.

The only drawback (and it's not the hotel's fault) is that the shuttle service used by most of the hotels here is not as dependable as it could be. Rumor has it that the hotel is thinking about setting up its own shuttle service to and from Disneyland. A shuttle that ran dependably every hour on the hour would be a huge improvement over the current situation and make this excellent hotel a "perfect 10" for a Disneyland stay.
