My husband's birthday

Bosque Farms, New Mexico

The room was lovely. I had a view of the pool and the parking lot. I didn't quite understand the elevator system, though. There are multiple elevators, but I'd put in my floor, and then the keypad would tell me which elevator to use. During peak times (travelers coming or going), it was a long wait for an elevator, and often, it would be too full to fit one more person, so I'd have to repush my floor of choice and wait for another elevator. That was a bit annoying. In the middle of the day, it wasn't so bad. As I had informed the person who took my reservation that I'd be celebrating my husband's birthday--even though he had just passed away, she listed birthday on the reservation. When I explained I had come solo, the staff were so kind and compassionate and caring. They made the stay just delightful. The hotel is the longest walk to the parks of the 3 on-site hotels. It would have been rougher to stay there with my husband (in a wheelchair) and get around to the parks. I did have early access to the parks. Taking the monorail in was great--short line. The next day, though, I had to wait in line 30 minutes with other early entry families. That was a bit of a surprise--going to California adventure. I did take advantage of the 6am yoga class---that was AMAZING. It was rather surreal to walk through the empty California Adventure to the bear country to plop down the provided mat and stretch, watching the sunrise and listening to the birds. That was the best! Again, the staff were great. The room was a bit pricey, but I planned for that going in. I would stay here again.

Perfect Disney Service

Indianapolis, Indiana

Exactly the service you'd expect from a Disney property. The front desk staff were helpful and efficient. There was an issue with our reservation and they fixed it right away. She even offered us an extra fast pass for our trouble. We had a room on the 15th floor with a premium view. The club level costs extra and so does the view. In there future I will still stay on the club level however I will not spring for the view. seeing the park is fun, however its also fairly loud. ( until about 11 or 12 at night) Being on the club level allows you to take advantage of the guest lounge on the second floor snacks are out almost all the time. A nice light continental breakfast. (have a frosted donut, they are super yummy) cocktails available in the evening at happy hour, and I found at other times as well if you simply ask. My only complaint (which is very minor,) My kiddo was asleep and I was trying to bring a little fruit and juice to her upstairs I asked if they might have a bigger plate so I could have an easier time carrying the juice and the fruit while getting the door, and they were unable to help. Not a huge deal at all- it just would've Mae things a bit easier) The room was spacious and very clean. Cute decor with. it isn't brand sparkling new, but thats was fine. The pillows weren't very soft, but typical hotel pillows. The turn down service was excellent and we did treat ourselves to room service one night which was really good- sharing quesadillas with beef and also an ice cream sundae. Here's what was not so great. Be prepared to WALK A LOT. There is no shuttle to the park entrance. You must walk to the entrance of an out door Disney shopping mall then through that mall then to the park entrance. It's quite a hike. They do have a monorail that is some help, but that only goes to Disney land, and not California Adventure and it's still a significant walk to get there. Plus at the end of the day you're beat and the last thing you want to do is make your way through all those people two miles back to your hotel. All in all a lovely property, with great service and wonderful views- I wish you could hire a shuttle service to the entrance, however it was a wonderful stay, the room is spacious, I'd recommend it.
