Embassy Suites Anaheim South Review W/Pics
Embassy Suites Anaheim South is on Harbor Blvd, about a mile from DLR. We spent a week there for our 20th Anniversary trip. We chose it because we wanted a nice and roomy place but didn't want to pay the DLR hotel prices. I thought I would post a review because before we went I couldn't really find out much about it.
We used the AAA discount to get the room for $151 a night. There is a parking fee of $6 a day but we didn't pay that because we booked before it went into effect.
Here is our king sized bed.
And the other side of the bedroom.
I liked having the king sized bed, but it was shorter than ours at home. Not really a problem for us because we are not tall people. The bed was not as comfortable as I like because at home we have a memory foam pad on our bed. I like a very soft bed. DH thought it was fine.
Here is the living room. As you can see, each suite (all the rooms are suites) has two tvs. This came in handy when I woke up at 4am with one of my really bad headaches. I was able to go out and watch tv without disturbing DH. The sofa also has a hideaway bed if you need it.
Each room also has a litle "kitchen". More of a bar, really. It has a sink, a small refrigerator, and a microwave under the counter. This area can also be used for getting ready in the morning if someone is in the shower since it also has a sink and a mirror.
The view from our room was not the best. We looked out over an empty lot that used to be some sort of golf driving range. I can think of a lot of things that would be great to put in that spot. A Starbucks and small grocery store for starters. When DH saw the picture he thought something was wrong with the camera because it had a stripe at the top. I told him that was the sky and he didn't believe me until I showed him out the window. The ground is so flat. Where we live you see hills everywhere you look.
DLR is off to the far right of the pic. We could see some of the fireworks if you pressed your face against the glass. Wish we had a room on the other side of the hotel that faced that way!
I don't have a bathroom pic, but it was nice. The shower curtain rod was curved so that the curtain didn't get sucked into the shower like sometimes happens when the rod is straight.
I will have to finish my review later and I will post more pics of the lobby. It was very cool!
