The Anaheim Marriott hotel is rolling back its rates about 15% for those who visit in December. It's close to Disneyland and Downtown Disney at a fraction of the price for resort hotels.
The deal: The 19-story Anaheim
Marriott next to the Anaheim Convention Center has almost 1,000 rooms,
each with coffee makers and mini-fridges (could be useful for families).
It's a good time to visit Downtown Disney's Winter Village, which will
feature a 30-foot Christmas tree and Olaf's Frozen Ice Rink (named for
the character in "Frozen"), starting Nov. 14.
Holiday room prices
start at $119 a night plus tax. As a comparison, I found rooms on the
same nights starting at $440 a night at Disneyland Hotel and $428 a
night at Disney's Paradise Pier Hotel. Amenities vary among these
hotels, of course.
When: The offer starts Dec. 1 and is good through Jan. 4, based on availability.
I found rooms for $119 plus tax for the weekend Dec. 13 to 15. It's a
good deal, but watch out for extra fees. For example, hit the lobby and
other public areas for free Wi-Fi rather than pay $12.95 a day to check
emails in your room. Parking costs $24 per night and $30 per night for
