In November 2021 - just after France reopened their borders for the first time - we travelled to Disneyland Paris and stayed in Disney's Hotel New York - The Art Of Marvel. After returning we booked our January 2022 trip and decided to try Disney's Sequoia Lodge. After the November trip, France closed their borders again so we had to postpone this trip until the end of January into February when they reopened them once again.
We stayed in a standard room that was located in the Yosemite Lodge. Room 237 to be exact. The room was clean, cosy, in good condition, and much more spacious than it looks in photos. There's subtle Bambi theming across the top of the walls and also some Bambi artwork. There was housekeeping once a day so we always came back to a clean and tidy room with made beds.

The only criticism I would have is there isn't many plug sockets, and the main ones are quite hard to get at. An extension cable is a must. There's no fridge (which was a shame) and no iron, but you can request an iron to be brought to your room.
Restaurant & Lounge
The only restaurant at this hotel is Hunter's Grill. An all-you-can-eat buffet which costs 38 Euros each (plus drinks). There's a good selection of duck, deer, salmon, chicken, cold cut meats, soups and salads, and a wide range of desserts. Nothing amazing but the selection and quality was good enough. I would rate it slightly (ever so slightly) below La Grange at Billy Bob's at Disney Village, but the offerings between these two restaurants are similar.
The lounge at Disney's Sequoia Lodge is lovely. We found ourselves visiting every night. Keep in mind the standard seats are low back seats and can get a little uncomfortable after a while, but if it's quiet you can grab one of the super comfy sofas by the fire. The ambience is so calm and relaxing, and so far my favourite place to relax at Disneyland Paris. The service is great and the selection of drinks is good.
The hotel absolutely gives you Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge vibes for the fraction of the cost. The whole hotel is warm and cosy, and has a really nice distinct smell. It has a very relaxing atmosphere, even if it can be a little confusing to navigate.
Disney's Sequoia Lodge is a beautiful hotel that is reasonably priced for a 3-star on-site Disney Hotel. Other than a fridge in the room, it has everything you need in a relaxing well-themed hotel. I would absolutely stay here again.
