I was in the area for a conference. This hotel was about a 20 minute walk to conference center. It is about 35 minute walk to the security point of Disney.
My company rate included breakfast. It is a buffet of eggs, sausage, cereals, fruit. You can also order omelets, pancakes, French toast, etc. It is good quality and cost $15 if not included in your rate. Hotel also has night time meals but I didn't have any of them. Also a bar area if you would like to order a drink.
There is a decent workout room for a hotel this size. No one was ever in it and I enjoyed my work outs. Pool and hot tub area was clean and again not that popular during my stay. I had the hot tub to myself most nights.
They also have a program to get additional point if you don't need daily house keeping. I opted for the program but I still got my room cleaned a few days. I am not sure if I got the additional points or not. Rooms had a microwave & small refrigerator. WiFi worked well. I was on the fifth floor and it was quiet. The bed was so so. I think it maybe time to start a replacement program on the mattresses. The hotel minus the lobby is starting to be a tad dated. I don't mind as much as long as it is clean and the halls and rooms were clean. They were even shampooing the carpet in the halls one day I was there.
Staff was friendly every time I interacted with them. Hotel is located near many other hotels and many chain restaurants. There is a Target near by with a grocery store in it. I was able to not eat out every meal with the microwave and refrigerator. Do walk down to Joe's for a sweet treat. It is really good and less than a five minute walk. $30 Uber ride to John Wayne airport. Overall a nice experience. If back in the area I would stay again.
I love this hotel. They have the staff that will accomodate all of your needs. From manage to the maids everybody works hard in pleasing the guests. I have been to other hotels in garden grove this hotel tops them all.
