DoubleTree Anaheim - Orange County (Near Disneyland) Review

Located at 100 The City Drive, Orange, California, the DoubleTree by Hilton Anaheim - Orange County is about 3 miles from Disneyland (on foot). Don't worry about the distance because the hotel offers all guests a complimentary shuttle to and from the park which travels on a set schedule (check the front desk for times).

We stayed at this hotel for one night during our road trip to San Diego and had a really great experience. The room was spacious, the bed was comfortable, we had an amazing view and enjoyed a nice dinner at the on-site restaurant, Trofi. 

Typically we only stay at hotels within walking distance to Disneyland, but the rate was so great for this property I couldn't resist. As a HiltonHonors member, I know that we are going to get upscale amenities and great service from the DoubleTree, so I was eager to stay here.

All of the standard rooms have been renovated and feature the comfy Sweet Dreams by DoubleTree beds. We chose a King room, but doubles and suites are also available. (Note: refrigerators are only available in suite rooms.)

There was plenty of room for both of us and lots of surfaces, drawers and floor space for all of our belongings.

This mirror and ottoman came in handy when it was time to put on make-up and get dressed.

Outlets are everywhere

We were really happy to see outlets everywhere! Between the two of us we had lots to charge: cameras, phones, phone chargers, laptop, iPads, etc. It's great to not have to worry about uncharged electronics.

The view from our room on the top floor was amazing. We had a clear view of Angel Stadium which, as you can tell, is really close to the hotel. The hotel is in the perfect location, right by the I5 to get back to John Wayne International Airport and right by the Outlets at Orange. It's also close enough to the Toy Story parking lot that you can drive there and use the Disneyland shuttle instead of the hotel's shuttle.

Yay for coffee!

The bathroom was also very spacious and featured the curved shower rod which I prefer.

The Aroma Actives Essentials toiletries were a nice touch as well.

We really enjoyed our stay at this DoubleTree hotel. It is a FANTASTIC property. No, it's not walking to Disneyland, but the free hotel shuttle and proximity to the Toy Story lot make it a great choice for your trip to Disneyland or the Anaheim area in general. We used the hotel shuttle in the morning and afternoon and found it to be easy and convenient. Because the last hotel shuttle leaves Disneyland at midnight, we opted to park at Toy Story in the evening so that we could stay and shop until 1:00am, then take the Toy Story bus back to the car.
