We just had an amazing stay at this awesome hotel. Upon checking we were offered a free upgrade or an upgrade to concierge for a small fee (which we accepted). The location is right inside theme park but without the noise or bustle. The room was very clean and the staff were exceptionally friendly. Highly recommend!

Stayed here for 7 nights while visiting Southern Cali for a wedding. Although the price was higher than I normally would spend for a room of this size, 2 queen beds and a small bathroom, we still enjoyed the hotel with its high Disney standards of cleanliness, friendliness and quality. Plus the location was terrific, walking right into Downtown Disney... More

For the price that you pay, this hotel itself is not that fancy. It is well appointed, the lobby is impressive, and the staff are very helpful. The rooms are standard, nicely furnished, and we had a view over the pool. There is double glazing that is very effective and very useful when having a mid afternoon nap between theme... More

My mother, my two sister and I stayed at the Grand Californian for 3 nights. We were visiting from the Cayman Islands and Ireland to celebrate my 18th Birthday. When we all arrived (exhausted) we were automatically greeted with a smile and were being checked in within 2 minutes. I have never had such prompt service. The Hotel makes a... More

We stayed two nights in the Disney Grand Californian One Bedroom Villa’s in Mid-April during the week of our 13 year old son and 11 year old daughters’ Spring Break. The combination of booking mid-week and a very late Spring Break in our school district combined for very moderate traffic and so an easy time in both parks. We had... More

Ok so as with every other reviewer, I am going to say it is all about the location. While it is nice to sort of have your own gate to the park, it is not the end all. Picture an entire hotel trying to get through only one lane at 7a. Its ok but not great. Unfortunatly the rush for... More

My wife and I spent four nights at the Grand Californian. As other reviews have mentioned, staying here is not cheap and this is why: Location, location, location. That's right, above all else, you're paying for the sheer convenience of being able to easily go to and from the resort property to both Disneyland and California Adventure. At first, we... More

Perhaps my expectations were a bit too high, but for nearly $500/night for a standard room, I expected something that would approach Fairmont or Four Seasons in terms of quality and finishes, but I guess the money is mostly about location, which is hard to beat. The rooms are a bit outdated in their finishes. The electronics are out of... More

While expensive, this hotel is a visual treat and in a great location. Next time, I would not opt for the concierge level room. The price difference between concierge level and standard theme park view is fairly large and I didn't find that the concierge level service (food, drink, etc.) warranted the price difference for a party of two. However,... More

Convenient for a Wedding at the Disney Rose Garden, reception at the Grand Californian. Average appointed rooms (for the price I would've imagined much, much more), clean, comfortable beds, but about double the price you would pay at 5star hotel. I suppose the idea of craftsman style is too utilitarian for my taste, and I had anticipated much more, again... More
