A Visit to Ayres Hotel and #ChocWalk
If you’re planning a visit to Southern California and you’re looking for a hotel that is close to shops, theme parks and freeways, then look no further than the AYRES HOTEL in the city of ORANGE.
I know when you’re traveling it’s hard to look for a hotel that is clean, safe and reliable. Especially when you’re traveling with children. The holiday season is soon upon us and booking a hotel early enough is key when making sure you have the merriest of holidays. My visit to the Ayres Hotel in Orange was a short one. I was able to spend one night. I was welcomed by the nicest staff that quickly accommodated me and my daughter. We arrived rather late to the hotel. See, my daughter fractured her ankle last week and I was alone with her. I had lots of stuff to carry and thanks to a wonderful friend, I was able to make it to my room without losing my mind.
When we entered the room, the first thing I noticed was how big the rooms were. There was more than enough room for a small family to enjoy. there was king size bed that was omgosh, oh so soft and the fluffiest of pillows to compliment your sleep. There was also a small area that contained a microwave, coffee maker and refrigerator. The room was adorned with mahogany furniture, a sofa sitting area and even a work desk that accommodates the laptop and USB cord plugins that you need to charge your electronics.
Also on the property you’ll find a heated outdoor pool, spa, fitness and business center. Also included in your stay are complimentary hot breakfasts, free Wi-Fi, and free parking! Also, my friend had a wheelchair that we could use and since we were in her area, she dropped it off at the hotel around 1 am! The staff (even at that hour) was super attentive to my friend. Now that’s service, my friends!
One thing though, when making your reservations, make sure you make it for the correct hotel. Right next to the Ayres Hotel is the Ayres Inn. And if you’re like me, you’ll initially end up at the Ayres Hotel a couple of miles away that’s in the city of Anaheim. Yes, it was a long day. Just a heads up!
The reason for my stay was so we can attend the annual #ChocWalk in the park at the Disneyland Resort!
What is Choc Walk?
The CHOC Walk in the Park, presented by Disneyland® Resort, raised $2 million on Sunday, October 12, attracting nearly 16,000 “CHOC Walkers” who joined together in support of CHOC Children’s and the health and well-being of children near and far. Participants came from throughout California, across the U.S. and as far away as South Korea, Australia, Canada and Mexico. The CHOC Walk stands alone as the largest and most unique single pediatric fundraising event in the country. – chocwalk.com
It was a wonderful event that supports a hospital that provides exceptional care to all who enter its doors. Last week we were there twice for my daughter. Once in the ER and then again to have her cast put on. Even before that, we had to make a trip there when my son fell and hit his head and suffered a concussion. Both visits were unfortunate for us, but the fact that there’s a hospital close by that offers top health care for our children, made this an easy choice to support CHOC.
Even though the walk is over, you can still help in giving! CHOC Walk is still accepting donations up until the 31st of October. You don’t want to miss out on this opportunity to help.
