We stayed here for a long weekend in July of 2014. The hotel is beautiful and well maintained. Our check-in went quickly and we were guided to our room. We were on the second floor with a pool view room. The room is well appointed with a refrigerator, 42" flat screen television and DVD player. The bed was very firm... More

We stayed in a room on the 5th floor and were treated to a view of Grand California theme park. We were able to watch the World of Color show from our room- there's even a channel to listen to the accompanying music. The sofabed my son slept on was very comfortable. Our bed was great. I didn't care much... More

I love this place, my family stayed here Christmas a few years ago and it was a great experience. This time was as close to perfect as the last. My only disappointment was our room location. Our "premium view", it seems the roof of sephora in Downtown Disney is premium. To be fair, they offered to move us in the... More

Attending a conference held at the Disneyland Hotel I stayed at this resort because no rooms were available at the other property. There was a moderately long Iine encountered at check-in but this is Disney. Cast members were efficient. Check-in was smooth. The property is spectacular. Very much like the Wilderness Lodge in Disney World this has a beautiful atrium... More

I am a Disney fan so in all they can do little to no wrong. And this is no different. They did nothing wrong. The reception is wonderful. They even had a button with my name on it waiting for me as they knew I was celebrating my birthday. I paid for a "Premium" room. I had requested a room... More

Stayed here with our 2 & 6 year old, loved how close it was to the parks so if we needed to "divide and conquer" it was easy to do so. I love Disneyland SO MUCH more than Disneyworld. The people are nicer, the weather is nicer, and it's not so overwhelming. Our room was comfortable, the food in the... More

This property is so well located we would definitely stay here again. Reality is the property is very expensive, and quite dated and dark...certainly the guest rooms and bathrooms. However the pool facilities are very good, the service great, and the location exceptional. You can't beat walking back through those gates to escape the crowds and have a swim, and... More

We are DVC members, and our home resort is the Grand Californian. Let me just say, I love this hotel! Not only did we get munchies all the time from the club level lounge, we put our swimsuits on, ran to GRR, rode it, went back to our room and changed out of the wet clothes. The location is simply...

From the minute we walked into the the Grand Californian we were greeted by a cast member that directed us to our cast member for the concierge floor. We were checked in directly in our room by the concierge cast member and she also gave us a tour. The food and beverages (including adult beverages) provided in the concierge lounge,... More
