This year the 2010 Major League Baseball All-Star game is being played at the Anaheim stadium in Anaheim, California. Being almost exactly in the middle of the Southern California Megalopolis makes this a great location for you to go see the game and go have some fun at other locations as well.
1. Disneyland Hotel
The Disneyland Hotel is a great hotel to go to so you can go play before or after the All-Star game. The Disneyland Hotel is located of all places at 1150 Magic Way in Anaheim California. The Disneyland Hotel is a bit pricey but it is a good hotel with some special amenities such as early entry to the Disneyland theme park. This is the place to stay if you bring kids with you. The whole area is themed and is great for kids or even adults. The Disneyland Hotel can be very romantic if you are with a loved one. The Disneyland Hotel has two pool areas one themed after Neverland and having a couple slides and a spa. Another pool has a sand volleyball net, is next to the work out room, and is more for adults as it is quieter. There are many gazebos around the Hotel with great lighting and landscaping that even includes some waterfalls which all make for great romantic spots for adults or adventurous spots to explore for kids. The Disneyland Hotel has many food options in the Hotel and next door at Downtown Disney. When not going to the All Star game or even a theme park you can enjoy going to Downtown Disney.
2. Double Tree Guest Suites Anaheim Resort
The Double Tree in Anaheim is not just a hotel it is a resort.The Anaheim Double Tree is located withing walking distance to Disneyland but does offer bus rides. The Anaheim Double Tree is conveniently located on Harbor one of the main streets in Anaheim in fact it is located at 2085 S Harbor Boulevard, Anaheim California. The rooms are a bit pricey starting at almost $200 a night. The rooms are slightly large then a standard hotel room with many more amenities. There is a work out room and pool if you have time, I have never been to either though I have stayed in this hotel a few times because I am always busy mostly going to Disneyland and do not have the time to go for a swim but I have seen the pool and the pool sits on top part of the lower roof and offers a good view of Anaheim. One thing that is good about Double Tree is that they give you a free cookie, you can get all the free cookies you want during the day. If you are going to the All Star game you can get a few cookies before you go to save some money on food at the game, or get a few cookies to take to Disneyland because the same sized cookies will cost you about $5 at Disneyland. Suits are also available and they are large compared to standard rooms but similar to other hotel suites.
3. Disney’s Grand California Hotel & Spa
Disney’s Grand California Hotel is more then a hotel it is also a Spa. The Disney’s Grand California Hotel & Spa is located in the California Adventures park at least according to Disney the actual address is 1600 S Disneyland Drive, Anaheim California. Also there are no gates separating you from the park but during the park opening hours you can go through the park this way with cast members checking tickets and this will save you the time of waiting in line at the front of the park as well as get you farther into the park then others and closer to some of the rides you may want to go on. Like the Disneyland Hotel the location is great being right in the heart of Downtown Disney, and connected to Disneyland California and only a short walk across to Disneyland. It is a better hotel to stay at if you are going to the Disney parks because it is closer and while the Disneyland Hotel is close the shorter trip everyday after you have been walking all day really makes a difference. If you are just going for the All Star game then this is still a good place to stay as long as you want to stay somewhere nice and pamper yourself. The hotel is not a 5 star hotel only because it would need more staff to guests and it wanted to make it more affordable for everyone to stay here even though this is the most expensive Disney Hotel. There is a 5 star restaurant though and it was even voted the best in Orange County so if Hot Dogs and Beer at the game are not your thing or if you want a change then you can just leave your room and go to one of the best restaurants in the county.
Any of these hotels are great Anaheim hotels. These hotels are all close to the Disney parks and close to Anaheim stadium for the All Star game. If you are going with family some of these places are great, if you go with a loved one some are great too, and even just with the guys these are some of the best hotels in Anaheim so the best hotels to stay for the All Star game.
