Sometimes it seems that the world is designed for a family of four. But not all families fit in that box of two adults and two kids. Or, you might be making a trip with extended family and have more adults and kids bunking up together than usual. When your larger family takes a vacation, it helps to find that perfect hotel that fits everyone comfortably for the most affordable price without having to book adjoining rooms. That's why your frog friends are here to share some of the best Los Angeles hotels for larger families. Since Disneyland is one of the most visited attractions near LA, we are including hotels in the Anaheim area in our list, as well.
