New York Hotel



Architecturally more interesting to observe than to stay in, this is the first of the the 'top two' Disney hotels, the other being the Disneyland itself. Our first impressions were that it's a bit antiseptic - unsurprising when you realize that it was originally designed for the convention business rather than the tourist trade. As a major conference centre it is complimented perfectly by the facilities across the lake in the Newport Bay Hotel.

However, it has excellent levels of service, superb rooms (if you like 1930s style) and a skating rink outside open during November - March. The rink also has a great sound system which, combined with the stunning views from the front bedrooms, make it a good hotel for those without kids. Even those with kids are well catered for, however: "We stayed at the hotel New York for three nights, it was fabulous and the staff went out of their way to make our two children happy . The room was clean and tidy although some of the decor was beginning to show its age."
