We stayed at the Cortona Inn & Suites. It's on Harbor. We drove, but I did see people walking to the parks. I'm not sure how long of a walk it is..

I got a really good deal on this room off Hotwire. It had a laundry room which was also on our floor which we took advantage of. We only used the dryer which was $1.25. I'm not sure how much it was for the washer.

The staff was nice and very accomdating. They had an issue with my ATM card which they used to charge the resort fee too. I had money (duh) but it wouldn't work for them. I have them DBF's and it worked fine. So who knows what happened there.

The rooms were clean and I we didn't have anything to complain about..

Okay, here's some pictures..



The bed looking from the front door.



The TV armoire and a chair.



A desk with a chair.



The fridge and microwave.



The toilet and part of the shower/bath.



The sink with a coffee maker and hair dryer.

Wow the room looks nice! What is the address to this place? Do you recall how many stars it was and the Hotwire description when you bid on it?
Thanks!

Thanks!
The address is:

2029 S Harbor Blvd
Anaheim, CA 92802

And it was 3 stars.. For Hotwire I *think* I picked 3-star hotel in Anaheim - Disneyland South (if the hotel isn't South of Disneyland, then I picked Disneyland North) and I paid $59/night. Cortona Inn & Suites charged me I think $6/day for resort fees.

It says on the site that it's a block and a half, but it's pretty long blocks. I'm not sure if they had a shuttle going to the parks..

HTH!

So here it goes again....

She agreed that it is has the most relaxing views because of the waterfalls. The room was very nice, but I could feel the springs in the mattress. Not too comfortable, but I still fell asleep quickly. Mousekeeping was great as our room was always clean!



Desk and closet were to the left as your entered:


Bathroom was to the right:








I loved the toiletries!!!

Oh my goodness. They changed the toiletries! The DLH used to have the standard red, black and white Mickey stuff that PPH has now. I didn't realize they switched to these adorable bottles! How cute! It has been a long tims since I stayed in DLH. I love it there but the last times have alternated between PPH and GCH.

I loved these bottles. My DFi ended up putting some in his suitcase on the first day and they replaced those. He wanted to put them in his suitcase every day, but I told him we didn't need 4 sets!!! He said we could take a bunch, clean them up, and use them as decorations on the tables at our wedding. I still said no. I was afraid of being charged if we took them every day!

We ended up with 2 sets! However, come to think of it, he still has my set!

When my friends and I go, we usually stay two nights, so I am able to do the old 'stash the bottles in the luggage' trick and the maids will leave more for us the next day, so I get a set and the other person gets a set! But if we do a one-night stay at some point and there are bottles I don't have, if I am the one who makes and pays for the reservation, then I am claiming the toiletries for my own!

Yes, I got my H20 things at GCh last year. Actually, all of the Disney toiletries are made by H20 now, but those are the only ones that clearly say H20 on the packages. If you look on the back of the other toiletries form the other hotels, in small print you will see they are also H20, but with Mickey packaging!

And I know they expect us to swipe the bottles. What I meant was that in the past, because we have always stayed at least two nights, there were chances for me to get a full set and my friends to get a full set when the maids came and replenished the supply. But in the future, if we only stay one night and therefore get ONE set, and if I am the one paying for the room, then I am taking the bottles for my own and my friends will not get any! Hee hee.
