Portofino Inn & Suites is all about basic family stays with front row access to the Anaheim Convention Center and Disneyland Resort. I’ll tell you how quickly you can get to Disneyland from Portofino Inn & Suites, plus which amenities really make a difference.

Portofino Inn & Suites Disneyland Family Hotel Location


Is this hotel walkable? Yes, it is a 17 minute walk, but hang tight because I’ve got a few options to save those tired feet. Portofino Inn & Suites is located at 1831 S. Harbor Blvd. and you know I love staying at Harbor Blvd. hotels (see all my hotel reviews here). Here’s the best ways to get to Disneyland from Portofino Inn & Suites or other convention center area hotels:

  1. Walk about 17 minutes, just head north on Harbor (that’s a left when you get out on the road). You’ll cross at Katella which is where CVS is located; tons of grocery items inside! You’ll cross another small road at Disney Way, but stay on the left hand side of the road and it’ll get you to Disneyland in no time.
  2. Walk abut 5 minutes for a free ride on the Toy Story Shuttle bus. Yes, it’s totally free. There is pedestrian access to the Disney owned parking lot where you can board a Disney-themed bus and ride over to Disneyland, no problem! Go south (turn right) on Harbor Blvd. and cross the street at Convention Way. Read about Toy Story lot shuttle times and more parking questions here.
  3. Uber it! If your kids don’t need car seats (under 8 years old need them and Uber does not provide them), get an Uber. Ubers aplenty in Anaheim and you’ll arrive in about 5 minutes, saving you precious time!

I don’t list ART (Anaheim Rapid Transit) because I’ve never tried it. For the cost and wait time involved, I prefer the above methods hands-down.

Portofino Inn & Suites Disneyland Family Hotel RoomsPortofino room Disneyland

Disneyland is such a magical place, with things for everyone in your family to enjoy. But once you get back to the hotel, you need a little space to unwind. And for those of you with a big family, it’s tough to squeeze everyone into a tiny hotel room. Portofino Inn & Suites has the extra space you need in select rooms, complete with DOORS to keep sleeping kids asleep! Here’s a breakdown of all the hotel room types available:

  • Disneyland two bedroom suite has a bedroom and living space with pull-out bed that’s separated by sliding French doors. The doors have a semi-sheer curtain attached, but where this suite really gets bonus points is it offers two bathrooms as well. Both rooms have TVs.
  • Disneyland kids suite has a king bedroom and bathroom when you walk in, then the kids’ space with a twin over twin bunkbed (built in railings included) and pull-out bed that’s separated by sliding French doors. The doors have a semi-sheer curtain attached. Both rooms have TVs, but the fridge and microwave are in the kid section so be aware of that if your littles tend to get into things!
  • Disneyland king suite has a king bedroom, separated like sliding French doors (again the doors have a semi-sheer curtain attached). When you walk into the king suite, you walk into the living space that has a pull-out bed, table and chairs, mini fridge, microwave and TV. The difference between this and the two bedroom suite is this one only has one bathroom.
  • Disneyland deluxe guestroom has two queen beds, a private balcony, mini fridge, and a vanity outside of the bathroom which makes getting ready much easier. This is the smallest of the rooms and can sleep up to four people.

If I’ve already convinced you, you want to book your room through my ticket partner for the lowest rates.

While this hotel does not offer complimentary breakfast, don’t let that scare you away. Eating breakfast inside Disneyland Resort is one of my favorite ways to indulge. If you’re more of a grab and go breakfast type, consider picking up a few things at CVS nearby or even ordering something to go at IHOP just across the street. Of course you can also store a few breakfast essentials in your mini fridge as well. If you’re looking for a hotel that has breakfast, I’ve also got you covered with my list of hotels with breakfast near Disneyland. Here’s what we ate for breakfast at Disneyland when we stayed at Portofino Inn . . . PS mobile ordering with the Disneyland app helps so you don’t waste any time at all!

Portofino Inn & Suites Disneyland Family Hotel Extras

Portofino Inn & Suites Disneyland is full of extras for your family to enjoy during down time! Let’s start with the heated year-round pool, with lots of lounge chairs, free parking, on site laundry facilities, a fitness center (major bonus as many area hotels do not have this option), plus my favorite bonuses:

  • family friendly board games to borrow at the front desk
  • beach bag filled with towels and beach toys to use for a day at the beach (additional cost)
  • stroller rental which can save you time and money when compared to renting from Disney
  • video game room with classic arcade style games

    Hi. We are considering staying here for a week but looking at reviews, how is the cleanliness of the room? I see people talking about that and how it needs an update. What did you think?

    • Hi Jacob, I would not consider staying here for a week. The amenities and space aren’t something that would be adequate for more than 3-4 days. I would suggest looking at Residence Inn Convention Center, Hyatt Home Convention Center or Springhill Suites Convention Center. If you’re okay to drive to Disneyland–those same brand of hotels located in neighboring cities might give you big enough of a price break to cover the cost of Disneyland parking. Interested to hear what you end up booking. Keep me posted.
