Last month we had a chance to tour a few Disneyland-area hotels, with our travel partner Get Away Today. While we were together, we got a sneak peek at the newly renovated Sheraton Park Hotel. It was hands down our favorite stop on the day-long tour. The Sheraton Park Hotel at the Anaheim Resort is a great luxury hotel, close to Disneyland.
We toured this hotel with our travel partner Get Away Today, but we have not stayed on site overnight. This post contains our personal, unbiased first impression of the Sheraton Park Hotel – a luxury hotel close to Disneyland.

The Sheraton Park Hotel Anaheim Resort Quick Chew Review
What we loved:
New, Modern Design
Awesome On-Site Amenities
What we didn’t:
Convention Overflow Traffic
Limited Rooms with Walk-in Shower
Parking and WiFi Fees
Outside the Magic Triangle (but, just barely.)
Sheraton Park Hotel Review: Luxury Hotel Close to Disneyland
The Sheraton Park Hotel is owned by Marriott. This supped up hotel has just gone a $33 million dollar upgrade and is easily now the nicest hotel near the Anaheim Convention Center. It beats out the nearby Anaheim Marriott, and honestly compares well to the luxe JW Marriott we love just down the road.
We’re in love with this luxury hotel close to Disneyland, but let’s walk through the hotel for a closer review!
Listen, if you’re looking for the best “value” in Anaheim, we’re not experts. We honestly prefer to stay in high-moderate to deluxe accommodations.
Our goal is to shoot for the very best hotel we can book at a moderate rate. Rack rates on rooms at the Sheraton Park range from $250-325, though we may see some change as the hotel shifts back into full operation, following the massive remodel.
We secure the best deals by booking in advance through our travel partner, Get Away Today. With their “low price guarantee” you’re just not going to get a better deal in the Anaheim area. We often secure luxury accommodations at moderate hotel pricing.

Where is the Sheraton Park Anaheim Resort Located?
The Sheraton Park is located less than a mile south of Disneyland Resort’s Main Gate. It’s directly on Harbor Blvd., just past Katella Ave.
This hotel is just outside our “magic triangle,” a collection of the closest hotels in walking distance to the Disneyland Resort. Though we’ve stayed in many hotels outside this area, walkability almost tips the scales when we’re considering where to stay. This is the first hotel, outside the magic triangle, that has risen to the top of our list for regular consideration.
How to Travel to Disneyland Resort from Sheraton Park Hotel?
There are three options for making your way from the Sheraton Park Hotel to Disneyland.
- Walk. It’s a simple walk down Harbor Blvd. to the Disneyland Resort Main Gate. There is one large intersection that must be crossed (Katella Ave.), but don’t worry no matter the time of day, you’re bound to be accompanied by dozens of other Park guests. The walk is about 15 minutes at an easy pace.
- Anaheim Resort Transportation Shuttle (ART Shuttle). Art is a hop on, hop off, shuttle that connects area hotels, restaurants, and Disneyland seven days a week. There is a shuttle stop located near the hotel.
Tickets may be purchased for single or multi-day use, using an app on your phone. If you’re booking your stay with Get Away Today, they can also help you with your shuttle tickets.
- Uber. Uber is a great option for those who don’t want to walk but are not patient enough for the shuttle. The trip takes about five minutes. The greatest part of that trip is looping around on Harbor to access guest drop-off at the Main Gate. However, with recent hikes in fuel costs and automatic surcharges in place that five-minute drive can cost $5 or $25, plus tip.
In addition, the pick-up and drop-off area at Disneyland’s Main Gate is not great. There is little seating for those who are waiting and at the end of the night, the wait can be longer than the walk. We often prefer to keep moving our exhausted feet.
What is the Sheraton Park like inside?
Due to its proximity to the Convention Center this hotel is designed to meet the needs of business travelers and park hoppers alike. The result is a massive lobby with tons of seating and room to socialize and hold small meetings.
Though the lobby has undergone a complete renovation and the updated design is stunning, it’s still a little bit darker than some of the other brand-new hotel’s lobby areas. On the plus side, the mood is a bit more intimate.
Sheraton Park Hotel Rooms
If you like a spacious hotel room (who doesn’t?), you will love the rooms at the Sheraton Park Hotel. Even the two queen rooms feel roomy. We love the traditional-modern design, which includes a beautiful textured wallpaper and a very luxe looking carpet (and you know we love hard surface floors, so a compliment on the carpet is something…).
We love that every room has a bit of a view and a lovely little private balcony to enjoy good weather.
Today we’re going to share a peak at the newly renovated, oversized guest rooms at the Sheraton Park, including a Club level King Suite (so incredible) and a two-queen room.
The hotel does have a limited number of two-double-bed rooms, as well.
Each of the large camel-colored headboards include USB plugs for easy device charging – a great feature.
The rooms have a nice built in that is great for storage. The built-in, frames the television and houses the mini fridge and coffee maker.
Each room has a small table in the corner. It’s a tech-friendly table with multiple plugs in the center (remember this hotel caters to both business guests and park hoppers), which is perfect for charging all the devices we seem to haul around on vacation.
A totally unnecessary, but amazing feature? The table raises with a motor so that you can stand at the table.
We have a feeling many of these will be stationary eventually, as it’s probably a feature not worth replacing or repairing when the motor breaks. Don’t get me wrong, I am sure the tables are well made. It’s the families with children who will decide that riding the table is a low-key Disney ride, programmed into the room, that will have an impact.
Speaking of Disney, the hotel does feature a limited number of rooms with a view. You can see the Park’s fireworks from some of these rooms.
Sheraton Park Bathrooms
Sheraton Park rooms feature two types of bathrooms. The standard queen rooms have a bathroom with a tub/shower combo, while the king rooms have a walk-in style for the win.
As big fans of the walk-in shower, we wish more of the rooms offered this feature, but recognize the tub/shower combo is popular with families.
The bathrooms have plenty of counter space and great lighting for getting ready.
We love (the design) of the barn doors on the bathrooms, but miss the privacy provided by a full door.
Sheraton Park Grounds and Amenities
Sheraton Park Grounds
The Sheraton Park Hotel grounds are lush! We’d think they’re the nicest in the Disneyland area by a long shot.
The terrace outside is pretty enough that it’s not unusual to see a bridal party on property.
Sheraton Park Pool and Splash Tiki Bar
The large pine trees, manicured lawns and intimate seating spaces are lovely in the evenings and frame in the large, gated pool and hot tub area.
This provides more of a resort-type feel than many of the hotel pools near Disneyland.
The tiki bar adjacent to the pool provides drinks to sip and bites to savor.
Sheraton Park Marketplace
Sheraton Park has one of the larger hotel markets.
They have a wide variety of souvenirs and a decent array of snacks and small bites, without much of a markup.
Sheraton Park Dining
There are two on-site restaurants at Sheraton Park – Morton’s and Savor Stone Hearth Pizza and Wine.
It’s been years since we’ve dined at Morton’s, which is a traditional steakhouse. We remember the food to be good and the service pretty quick for a sit-down steakhouse.
The star on property though is Savor, a pizza and wine bar. It’s the perfect “fun” spot for families with older children and teens, who’ve become more adventurous eaters.
The lunch and dinner are a prix fixe menu. Each table is served soup, a charcuterie board (so fun!) filled with regional meats, cheeses, and a light citrus salad and then all you can eat pizza (including dessert!).
Though standard margherita and pepperoni style pizza is available, this one probably isn’t the best deal for families with picky eaters.
Note: We love Savor and it’s a fun stop, even when we’re not staying at the hotel. You can read a full review of the restaurant, here.
Sheraton Park Hotel Fees and Parking
More often than not, Disneyland-area hotels have additional fees in place, beyond room rental. Nearly all the area hotels have a daily parking rate (with the exception of this value hotel), including the Sheraton Park. This deluxe hotel offers valet and self-parking, which is nice. There is no option to self-park over at the JW Marriott. Parking is at market rates, well in line with what you’d see at moderate-level resorts in the area.
There is also a fee for WiFi at the Sheraton Park. This is common at hotels that cater to business, as most figure it will be expensed. However, WiFi is no longer a luxury and we prefer when it’s simply included with the room stay.
Note: Get discounted parking and free WiFi, by booking through our travel partner, Get Away Today. Use the code TE10 for an additional $10 off your two-night (or more) stay.

We anticipate this luxury hotel close to Disneyland will fall into our regular rotation, with this hotel and this one!
