Compare Residence Inn to Good Neighbor Hotels

Residence Inn is a Disneyland Good Neighbor hotel and there are plenty more in Anaheim. But I like to group hotels in similar brands and/or offerings so you can make easy comparisons. Plus, I’ve likely stayed at each place you’re considering so always feel free to reach out to me on social media @DisneylandPlan or here in the comments.

Residence Inn joins several other Marriott hotels within a 15 or so minute drive to Disneyland, here’s a quick recap of all the Marriott options, along with some similar properties to Residence Inn.


Residence Inn Anaheim Convention Center


  • JW Marriott means luxury. It’s often the most expensive of all the Marriott brands in Anaheim, but also a high end name brand you can trust. This location is a short drive to Disneyland. Ideal for couples.
  • Anaheim Marriott Convention Center is located a bit farther than Residence Inn, but is a prime location next to the convention center and serves business guests.
  • Courtyard Marriott Water Park is a higher price point but the huge water park is a pull for families.
  • Residence Inn Anaheim Resort Area is actually located in Garden Grove. It is farther from the Disneyland area, but does have some affordable multi-room suites and basketball court. 
  • Springhill Inn & Suites by Marriott is right next to Residence Inn and they often share the same parking garage. Similar type of stays with a different room options and interior vibe. 
  • Hyatt House is another free breakfast, full kitchen and suite type of family hotel to consider.

Residence Inn at Anaheim Resort Convention Center is the hotel we’ll be reviewing here and one of my top Marriott picks for affordable comfort that’s close to Disneyland. 

Residence Inn Convention Center Location

Disneyland Residence Inn at Anaheim Resort Convention Center is located at 640 W. Katella Ave, Anaheim, CA 92802. Get to Residence Inn quickly from John Wayne Airport (SNA) or Long Beach (LBG) in about 30 minutes or less, depending on traffic.

Is this hotel walkable? 

Yes, Residence Inn at Anaheim Resort Convention Center is about a 15 minute walk to Disneyland and Disney California Adventure Park’s main gates. This location is less than 5 minutes to the Convention Center. 

Here are the best ways to get to Disneyland from Residence Inn:

  1. Walk. Look north from the hotel and you’ll see California Adventure landmarks like the back of Cars Land and Guardians of the Galaxy attraction. Head north on Harbor and you’ll be at Disneyland in no time. 
  2. Uber. If walking isn’t your thing you can always grab an Uber, just enter Disneyland Harbor Blvd drop off as your destination. Super simple. Sometimes I Uber it home at the end of the day but mornings I am typically good to go. 
  3. Toy Story Shuttle. The free shuttle from Toy Story lot is available, but the walk there is about as long as going to Disneyland itself. If you prefer the shuttle, walk south on Harbor after crossing east at Katella and Harbor.
  4. ART Shuttle (Anaheim Rapid Transit) is an option, but one I don’t use myself.

Full kitchen, separate bedrooms in select suites, pool and outdoor amenities all with the comforts of home away from home.


Some rooms face Disney California Adventure Park and you can see all the lights on at night! I love that view, especially seeing so many of my favorite attractions from a resort view window. Can you spot Guardians of the Galaxy in Avengers Campus?

Is this hotel walkable? 

Yes, Disneyland Residence Inn is about a 10-15 minute walk to Disneyland’s main gates. The video in this article shows the walk and a tour of the room. 

Here’s the best ways to get to Disneyland from Residence Inn:

  1. Walk. It’s a straight shot from the intersection of Harbor and Katella about a 15 minutes to Disneyland. 

  2. Toy Story Shuttle. You can also head the opposite way on Harbor to catch the free Toy Story Shuttle, but the walk is just about the same, and you still have to wait on the shuttle. It’s faster to walk.
  3. Uber it! For those headed to the Anaheim Convention Center, the walk will be about 5 minutes, or grab an Uber and head to Disneyland in minutes and save your feet! 

This is a great spot that’s not too far from anything, but I recommend it if your kids are super good about walking or if you’re using a stroller. I also like how close it is to CVS and the main Harbor hub with access to everything you’ll need. When you want the extended stay perks near Disneyland and a walking distance hotel, book using my discount code DLPlan here.
