    Disneyland Hotel

    We will be staying at the DH in August for 5 days.

    Need info on which tower to request. Do they upgrade if you ask nicely?

    COFFEE?!?! Do they have coffee pots in the room? Can I ask for one? Or should I just bring my own pot.

    I have a medical ice bag... do they have refrigerators? Again can I request one.

    Thank you

    When we stayed and when my neighbor went they didn't have anything. No frig, no microwave and no coffee maker. Not sure if you can request one. Good luck.

    Re: Disneyland Hotel

    Request the Sierra tower with a downtown Disney view. It has another name now, though.
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Re: Disneyland Hotel

    ^^^^^^

    We're in it RIGHT NOW!!! LOL

    Yep, the Sierra Tower is the BEST!

    The marketing folks prefer that you call it the Dreams Tower now though...

    But hey, when I'm paying the bill, I'll call it whatever I want!

    We don't do coffee, so it's never been needed (or missed) for our room.

    In the past, we have asked for and been given (free of charge) a mini fridge for the room. Since you have a medical reason for one, I'm sure that they will accomodate you without a problem.

    We're regulars at the DLH (about 4 stays per year), so we always end up with a room in the Sierra Tower which overlooks DTD. You can request it with the CM when you check in. Slipping them a $20 doesn't hurt either...

    Have fun!

    Re: Disneyland Hotel

    Is there a better (ie cheaper) place to book a room at the Disneyland Hotel than disneyland.com? For a two night stay, the site quoted me over $300 per night. Should I be trying Expedia or Priceline, or is that the usual price no matter where one looks?

    ^^^^^^^

    The best deals are when you actually call and speak to a real person at the DLH.

    And I'd recommend that you call at least three times to get a quoted rate.

    We just checked out yesterday after being there since last saturday and we paid $159/night and $179 for friday and last saturday night.

    We booked this trip last January. We book most of our trips there about 3 to 4 months in advance. Our next trip is for the D23 event and the rate is $139/night plus $50 for concierge. Concierge has varied from $40 up to $80/night in the past. We usually don't book it when they quote over $50/night, but then we ask once again when we check-in and it has occassionally been quoted lower so we take it if that is the case.

    I'm probably the only one who does not like the tower due to DTD noise.

    Ha!

    We prefer to think of it as the "sounds" of DTD...

    It adds to the ambiance!

    Re: Disneyland Hotel

    Two things surprised me on this thread. (1) You should really bribe a CM for an upgrade? (2) The hotel no longer has refrigerators in the rooms unless you ask for one?

    We have been staying there every year since 1974 and the room always had a fridge and I have never heard of bribing. Any insite? Thanks.

    You might have to "bribe" the front desk at one of those dumps on Harbor in order to get a room w/o the complimentary pets (cockroaches), but in the case of the DLH and many other fine hotels, we TIP the CM for their efforts in making our stay more enjoyable for us.

    We regularly stay on property and due to our usual arrival schedule, we mostly are greeted and taken care of by one of three long-time Front Desk CM's. They know us by name and know what to do to take care of us.

    No "bribe" necessary...

    OldSchoolMickey,

    Should I use your name when I check in. I always like to tell people that so & so said ya'll were the best and called ya'll by name!! It shows that when you are good at your job people love to talk about there stay or experience.

    I don't know what Disneyland Hotel is going to be like in August since they are going to start renovations.

    Re: Disneyland Hotel

    Just spoke on the phone with DL Hotel reservations and they quoted me over $700 per night for DL Hotel, or even Paradise Pier for early August. That seems insane... or is that just the going rate?

    Re: Disneyland Hotel

    $700 a night? Who did you call? Was that for a suite? No, there's something wrong there, you need to call back. I've got reservations Sept. 3-4 for a view at PPH for $179 a night. I could see it being in the 200-300 range in August, but not 700.
