Hotel Review: Marriott SpringHill Suites Anaheim Resort Area/Convention Center

The Marriott SpringHill Suites is located right outside of Disneyland and just a very short walk away from the Anaheim Convention Center. The hotel is very family friendly and Disneyland-oriented, which you will see already at the front desk. Some of the rooms also feature a bunk bed for kids. I had a Studio Suite with King bed and Sofa Bed.

At my arrival I was the only one checking in, so that was done quickly. During your check-in you will get a paper with all the important information about the hotel. It shows the best times to take breakfast and how to “behave” at the egg stations. I never got anything like this and it’s a nice gesture. If you park a car at the hotel you will receive your parking pass during check-in. This one has to be displayed on the dashboard. To enter the parking structure beneath the hotel, you will need your room key to open the gate. Parking costs $14 a day and includes self-parking or valet-parking. I only used valet-service on a saturday, when the whole garage was full. I parked right outside the hotel entrance at one of the 15 minute parking spots and they left it there. The hotel garage was obviously to full. That was actually great, because then I don’t have to wait until they find my car and pull it out.

I got the room on the 5th floor at the corner of the hotel. My view was towards Katella Ave and I was able to see Disneyland. That also gave me the chance to watch the fireworks in Disneyland every night. The fireworks starts during the week at 8:30 pm and on weekends at 9:30 pm. Click here to check the schedule.

My Studio Suite with a King Bed was very spacious. The bed was comfortable and had power outlets on either sed of the bed. There were different lighting options in the “Bedroom”. You could either use one of the two lights right next to the bed. They are great for reading. The second option would be using the dimmed indirect lighting, which is located on top of the bed. Best for watching a movie and not getting reflections on the screen.

On the fifth floor you will also find the rooftop pool and outdoor patio, great to watch the fireworks at Disneyland. The guest laundry and fitness center are located as well on the fifth floor. You can look outside to the pool and outdoor patio from the fitness center. It’s also quite big and offers a lot of workouts. To access the outdoor patio and the pool, you will need to bring your room key. Just before you go outside to the pool, you will find the restrooms on your left, in case you need them.

The ground level features the breakfast area, a small bar and an area to hang out and relax. Breakfast starts at 6:30 am weekdays and 7:00 am during weekends. There is a huge selection of breakfast items and kids will love the special feature of this hotel. They have Nutella. Man did I missed Nutella. Didn’t had any in month and really made use of that option here. Look down below the milk dispenser, there are two refrigerators with yoghurts. They are easy to miss. The small bar next to the lobby has some small bites to eat but no real meal.
