This is part of a series of blogs and coordinating DIS Unplugged: Disneyland Edition podcast segments focusing on the off-property establishments near the Disneyland Resort. This time, I take a look at the Hyatt Place located at 2035 South Harbor Boulevard. I talk in detail about my stay there on the November 13, 2014 podcast, but continue below for pictures and information.
This Hyatt Place is brand new, opening just a couple months ago. Enjoy that new carpet smell while it lasts.
I visited Hyatt Place on a Thursday night in mid-October. With AAA discount I paid $134 per night. The total with tax and parking was $174.94 per night.
Hyatt Place is just south of the Anaheim Convention Center and is right in front of the Cortona Inn & Suites. It is walkable, but driving or taking the Anaheim Resort Transportation bus might work out better.
Parking is $16 a night. Most parking is located in an underground garage. There was plenty of parking underground, but short-term parking for check-in wasn’t available.
Beds were new and very comfortable. Rooms come with either a King or Two Queens plus a sofa bed.
As the hotel is brand now, the rooms are in great condition.
There’s a fully enclosed bathroom, a nice sitting area and a bedroom area, all decorated in earth tones.
The desk was good sized, and the dresser, armoire and closet provided plenty of storage. The desk had two electrical outlets nearby, which made charging laptops and cell phones easy.
The major problem with the room was the adjoining door, which was very thin. I could hear all the conversations happening in the room next door.
The bathroom was all contained behind a single door, but otherwise, was fairly standard.
Both the towels and the bathroom products were in the moderate range.
The pool and hot tub were just west of the hotel, between the Hyatt Place building and the Cortona Inn next door. It was a good sized pool, with a small hot tub nearby. The area wasn’t very private though, so sunbathing might be a bit awkward.
The fitness center was also very nice and included some dumbbells.
WiFi was provided free of charge and I had no issues with it.
Breakfast was offered near the lobby and consisted of your typical continental breakfast offerings, plus pancakes, sausage and scrambled eggs.
There was plenty of room for seating in the area and near the lobby.
I hope that you can use this information to help plan your vacation. Remember, this is based on a one-night stay in one room of the hotel. Be sure to check out the podcast for more detailed thoughts.
The Hyatt Place is brand new, so the rooms and lobby are very nice, but the decor and feel of the hotel wasn’t right for me. I can’t put my finger on why though.
I would, however, recommend against staying in a room at the Hyatt Place that had a connecting door.
Still, if you’re looking for a nice hotel in the shadow of the Anaheim Convention Center, you or your travel agent might want to consider the Hyatt Place.
