As a local, I never book hotels in the resort area. But a friend is having a bachelorette weekend at the DLR and I volunteered to hunt around for a hotel room. Initially, we wanted on-property and had a room picked out at the DLH. But that room booked out at the discount rate that we wanted and now I am shopping around to compare alternatives.
I remembered the Anabella as being a MiceChat favorite, but I don't see a recent dedicated thread for it! With their many discounts, we found a rate that we really liked for the Concierge Room, which has a king bed, a double bed, and a pullout couch (which seems like a much better option than the DLH's two queens for sleeping 4 grown-up single ladies who might need a little space).
Anyone stayed at the Anabella recently? Tried a Concierge room? How are the restaurant/bar, the grounds, the pool? Looking for a relaxing place for the bachelorette and friends to spend downtime or happy hour between a busy day in the park and possibly a beach/shopping day and feel a little pampered without breaking the bank.
We are really leaning towards it. Another option we are considering is Hotel Menage, and intrigued by The Carousel, but for the best rate we have to wait until 30 days before the stay to book, and that's only if they are still under 80% occupancy. Let us know what you thought!
