Given the $400+ nightly room charge, my expectations were quite high, and mostly they were met. As a Disney property, the only reason to stay here is for Disney related activities. For that, this is THE most convenient spot. We stayed for the Tinkerbell Half Marathon, and found that it was a brief walk from the hotel to the starting... More

Close to everything. They have everything. To be able to be so close to the parks and come and go as I pleased was the best part. Room with a view of California Adventure park. Loved sitting on balcony and watching the light show. Definitely a fan.

We stayed at the Grand with our 2 and 4 year old. We loved it. Absolutely closest to the magic, being able to return anytime to our room made every cent worth it. The room is big enough for the 4 of us and the beds are so comfortable. The private entrance was great and near to all the cool... More

As expected, the hotel was very clean and nice. Immaculate even! We had some minor trouble upon check in. The room we reserved months in advance was somehow changed in the system. We ended up with a room that felt like it was 10 blocks down a deserted back hallway. The counter attendant didnt seem to care too much about... More

This is THE hotel to stay at when planning on going to Disneyland! It is completely geared towards families, but "does Disney" in a very tasteful, understated way. The lobby is reminiscent of a grand national park lodge, and there are craftsman style rocking chairs for children to watch looping Disney cartoons - the kids LOVE it! (There is also... More

I have stayed here many times, almost from the opening. It is majestic and full of Disney charm and happiness. This hotel is always my number one choice when staying at Disneyland. The access can't be matched and proximity to the parks are more than convenient. It is expensive, so if choosing to stay closer or stay longer is a... More

I cannot say a bad thing about our experience here. From the valet to the front desk and the retail and restaurant servers to the bartenders, everyone was pleasant and helpful. The rooms are just ok. We had a clean, comfortable bed, the bathroom and vanity area were clean. Housekeeping was in and out every day and turndown service at... More

We stayed here 5 days to be closer to Disneyland. And while the hotel is very nice and the staff are very friendly, there were a few things that needed attention especially for the price we paid. We had 2 rooms for 2 kids and 5 adults. Both rooms only came with 2 coffee cups, 2 glasses and 2 coffees.... More

I read many mixed reviews and having stayed at the hotel, I can see why this is so. We had always wanted to stay at the Disney Grand Californian Hotel and torn between this and the other three Disney properties. For a one-off trip, I decided on the Grand for location and payed top-dollar for a premium view overlooking the... More

This hotel is completely 5 stars for a family vacation to Disneyland, we will definitely be back. That said there were a couple things I will remember for next time: check-in took almost an hour and we got there just before 10pm on a Wednesday, from waiting for the valet and bellman to the explanations of everything included in our...
