Element by Westin Anaheim is the hotel we’re discussing here. It’s a top Marriott pick that’s close enough to walk to Disneyland without skimping on amenities.
I’ve stayed in nearly 20 Disneyland area hotels, and stayed here in February 2024. This hotel is set back from the main Harbor hub but has easy access to all things Disneyland.

Element Anaheim Location
The Element by Westin is located at 1600 S Clementine Street in Anaheim, California. Get to The Element quickly from John Wayne Airport (SNA) in about 30 minutes or less, depending on traffic.
Read more about the nearest airport here. In addition to the close proximity to Disneyland, other popular points of interest include Anaheim Garden Walk, House of Blues Anaheim, Angel Stadium of Anaheim, and more.
It is right next to SunCoast Hotel and shares a secure parking lot with them as well.
Around the corner from Harbor, you’ll see Disneyland Resort is about a 15-minute walk away. I like going north, parallel with the freeway on Manchester which loops around to Harbor. Book your stay here along with discount Disneyland tickets.
Is this hotel walkable?
Yes, Element is about a 15-minute walk to Disneyland and Disney California Adventure Park’s main gates. And how cute is the little footprint path they built to show you the way?
Here are the best ways to get to Disneyland from Element Convention Center:
- Walk. While it’s called “Convention Center” it’s not in the traditional convention center area, so don’t use that to map it out. It’s about a 15-minute walk to Disneyland. Head north on Manchester, then you’ll see the Matterhorn as you approach Harbor where you’ll take a left to the pedestrian crosswalk into Disneyland. Alternatively, you can go south on Clementine, head west on Disney Way, then north on Harbor.
- Uber it! For those headed to the Anaheim Convention Center, the walk will be about 15 minutes as well. For either destination, you can always grab an Uber and be there in minutes.
- ART Shuttle (Anaheim Rapid Transit) the stop is just outside on Clementine. It’s a one-time fee for your stay with access to and from Disneyland. The price is $6 per person at the time of publishing.
When you want a newer, upscale hotel with perks like free breakfast it pays off to stay a little bit farther from Disneyland, but still totally walkable.

Final thoughts on Element Convention Center . . . this is one I’ll definitely be booking with my family. Often we visit Disneyland with a large group of extended family and need rooms to accommodate all of us. I have loved staying here on business trips too.
The price point and walkability beat out other competitors where we usually stay with large groups. Plus, who doesn’t love a newer hotel in Anaheim, especially with a brand name you trust?
