Today we’re hitting you with an Element Anaheim review. This review features a hotel selection variable we personally never would have considered before…free breakfast. Traditionally walking distance, followed by a balance of luxury and affordability, square footage, amenities and even on occasion the view have all been factors in determining our vacation hotel, but after an extended stay at the Element, we’re adding breakfast to the list.

Today we’re sharing our experience staying at the Anaheim Marriott.
This is exciting…Today we’re sharing a review of the JW Marriott Anaheim Resort – a luxury hotel within walking distance of Disneyland. Spoiler alert. This is our favorite Disneyland-area hotel. We paid for this room out of pocket and the post contains our personal, unbiased impressions of the JW Marriott – the good, the bad and the ugly. This post… Read More
