Our room was at the very very far end of the hotel so took us a LONG time to walk there because we were in town for the Inaugural Avengers Half Marathon and I'm sure every room was full. Other than that, we liked everything about the hotel, the private entrance to California Adventure, the character breakfast options, the ability... More

I usually do not stay here because of the crazy prices, but I got a great deal as part of the Anaheim Star Wars Convention (40% off). Every cast member I came in contact with was friendly and helpful from the valet and bell staff, to the check in desk and housekeeping. They were all a little chatty and informative,... More

When you are going to the best theme park in the world stay at their best hotel. Gives you the opportunity to be right next to both Disney parks. You have your own entrance to Disney California Adventure. You get early entrance to both parks. Breakfast with Disney characters right at hotel. All this with Disney flair.

My husband was attending the Disney Institute so I tagged along. The hotel is lovely. I spent most of my time by the pool enjoying the sunshine that I hadn't seen in Ohio all winter! The pool gets extremely congested mid to late afternoon. Take advantage of the early morning hours if you want to relax! They also offer free... More

We won this trip to the hotel on a local radio station... So my review starts off amazingly as I had very little out of pocket expense for this trip. Even if I had paid for the rooms I would still give 5 stars. My only negative comment is that we only stayed 2 nights! The on site "convenience store"... More

My family has stayed here a few times now. If you are traveling with young children, it is absolutely worth it to stay here. Being so close to the parks makes it easy to go back for a nap mid day or grab sweatshirts after dinner. The entrance into California Adventure for hotel guests is great on Magic Mornings. The...

My family (kids are 10 and 12) and I just returned from our fourth or fifth stay at the Grand Californian Hotel. We have stayed at the Disneyland Hotel just to compare and save a little money, but have decided that the location alone makes the Grand Californian worth the price. It is so convenient to be able to walk... More

I have made several trips here. This hotel never has disappointed my wife and me. In typical Disney fashion, room was clean. Lobby was spectacular. They continue to upgrade the facility. This year we found they had moved the weight room to a new location and had made it better than it was before. Plenty of things to do and... More

We were in town for the Star Wars Convention and got an unbelievable rate on their standard room compared to a previous visit of getting a suite with a view. As always the staff was exceptionally courteous and helpful with our check in by informing us we never received our refund from our previous reservation (Non-Convention rate) deposit at the... More

As an annual passholder, my family and I visit the Disneyland Resort 3-4 times a year. We usually stay at more moderately priced properties to increase the number of visits we can make, but decided to spring for the Grand Californian this time. It's widely acknowledged that the main draw of the Grand is the location. I can't stress enough... More
