Paradise Pier Hotel Disneyland can be an excellent place to stay if you want to be close to all the action at Disneyland Resort. Both Disneyland Park and California Adventure Park are within easy reach when you stay at this California boardwalk-style hotel, so you can hardly argue with the location. Add in the welcoming facilities and the comfortable guest units, and it only gets better. Among the facilities is a family-friendly restaurant that offers Character Dining experiences in the morning. For your guest room, you can choose from a standard room, a concierge room, or a spacious suite that accommodate six or more people.
The Paradise Pier Hotel Disneyland is situated at 1717 S. Disneyland Drive in Anaheim. This puts it in the Downtown Disney District, and as its name implies, it is heavily affiliated with the Paradise Pier area of California Adventure Park. Nearly 500 total guest units are spread out over the hotel's fifteen stories, and many offer excellent views Disney's California Adventure. These rooms and the rooms that offer direct access to poolside cabanas are arguably the most enticing.
