The good, the not so good and the ugly. Here’s our review of the Sheraton Park Hotel at the Anaheim Resort. We hope it will help you decide if this is the right place for you to stay on your next Disneyland vacation.
Staying on Points
The Sheraton Park Hotel at the Anaheim Resort is a Category 4 Starwood hotel. It requires 10,000 points per night. Plus, when you use points, you get your 5th night free.
In addition, for 1,000 extra points per night, you can upgrade to a Club Lounge room (the 5th night is still free). Or, if you have the Starwood Business Card, this is a free perk. You must call Starwood to book a Club Level room on points.
The hotel grounds are quite beautiful. Most hotels in Anaheim are so compact they’ve started putting pools on top of parking garages. Not the Sheraton. The grounds feel spacious in comparison. Plus, most rooms have balconies, as you can see.
The Tiffany Patio is a great place to hang out day and night. The fire pit in the middle of several tables adds great ambiance at night.
Here’s a video of our entrance and walk through our Disneyland-facing hotel room (Room #1129). You’ll see Guardians of the Galaxy off in the distance.
The rooms are a little worn and in need of refurbishment. But, they were comfortable and we really liked the pillows.
A couple free bottles of water each day and one really expensive one.
Okay, this is just gross. While these rooms do need to be refurbished, this just needs someone to take the time to clean it. A couple non-essential pieces in the shower had come detached as well.
A surprisingly robust fitness area. It’s really spacious, there’s a large number of exercise options, and it’s all in great shape. There’s nothing worse than showing up to a hotel and jumping on an old beat up treadmill. Not here.
Room temperature towels, refrigerated towels, and free earbuds for watching your favorite shows quietly while you exercise.
Again, a Club Lounge room is only 1,000 point per night, or free with Starwood Business Card. We highly recommend it.
Breakfast in the lounge includes your very basic continental options. There was no bacon, sausage, or eggs like we’ve commonly had in other Sheraton lounges in the US.
You can get soda, coffee, and tea throughout the day.
Your day time snack options are pretty limited.
Evening Hors D’Oeuvres
We were genuinely impressed by the evening hors d’ouevres. We made dinner out of it each night before heading to the parks. Dinner plus breakfast saved us well more than the 1,000 points per night are worth (1,000 points is worth about $24).
Review of the Sheraton Park Hotel at the Anaheim Resort
The hotel grounds are beautiful. The fitness room is way above average. The Club Lounge is a great use of points; we saved a ton on food. But, the hotel room is totally average. The beds were nice and the balcony with the view was great, but the room itself is showing its age.
Would we stay here again on points? Yes. Overall, this is a great use of points and we’d do it again. (We’ll just try to get a room without a phone.)
Starwood Credit Cards
The personal Starwood Credit Card comes with a 25,000 point sign up bonus after spending $3,000 in the first three months. Plus, your $95 annual fee is waived in the first year.
The Starwood Business Credit Card has a 25,000 point sign up bonus after spending $5,000 in the first three months. The same annual fee is also waived. And, as we mentioned, it comes with free lounge access at any of the Sheraton’s that have a lounge.
