Howard Johnson Plaza Anaheim

For family friendly fun, you can't go past Anaheim's Howard Johnson Anaheim Hotel and Water Playground. It's within walking distance to Disneyland Park, which is every child's dream, but you don't even have to leave resort grounds for the little ones to have the time of their lives.

Don't just take our word for it, though. Check out its awards! In 2014 the plaza featured in TripAdvisor's list of Travelers' Choice Top 10 Best for Families in USA, and in 2013 it was even awarded Hotel of the Year.

If you still need more convincing. Perhaps the seven acres of private gardens and landscaped walkways for you to explore will do the trick. If not, how about its vicinity to the main gates of Disneyland? It's so close, you can even watch the evening fireworks that go off at the amusement park right from your hotel.

When it comes to facilities, Howard Johnson has it all. Castaway Cove is a themed water park that is free and exclusive to guests, keeping kids (and adults!) entertained for hours. For a more sedate swimming experience, try The Garden Pool. Surrounded by gardens and trees, this is the perfect spot to rest your weary head on a sun lounger after a hectic day at the theme parks. Let the kids play while you get some much-needed rest!

For a bite to eat without straying far, head to Mimi's Cafe. The decor is warm and cosy, and the staff are incredibly friendly. It's like home, only better - you don't have to cook! It's right next door to the hotel and serves classic American dishes that are bound to get your mouth watering. Pastas, burgers, sandwiches, soups and fresh homemade meals are all on the menu here, with a kids' menu featuring smaller portions to keep those little ones satisfied. For those concerned about their diet on holiday, check out the lifestyle menu. It's packed full of delicious meals specifically designed for health conscious diners.
