I'm aware that the location is great. It's walking distance from any of the great Disney landmarks, and that's what really made the price worth it. We could stay as long as we wanted in Disneyland without worrying that the shuttles were going to leave without us, because guess what? Our hotel was right next door. Nevertheless, excluding the location,... More

The initial impression is stunning as this hotel has a very grand entrance with a huge Great Hall. The decor in the common areas is tasteful and masculine without being overly so, or littered with animal carcases like so many other "lodge-inspired" locations go for. We arrived at exactly 3 pm, which is check-in time and were told that our... More

This is an excellent hotel, excellent service and very close proximity to the Disneyland and California Parks. Very kid-friendly, rent-a-car on site, clean, swimming pool towels in the halls for use, great on-time room service and very cordial and professional staff. The Great hall spectacular designed after Yosemite National Lodge. Very impressive. We had three children ages 6, 5 and... More

The Disney Grand Californian is designed to have the feel of an old, lamp-lit hunting lodge. I disagree with some reviewers who say it is "dark" inside. It it more "cabin cozy" than dark. We did self-park which was adequate and extremely convenient. I did wish, as have many other reviewers, that there was EV charging. I even brought my... More

I stayed here during my first visit to Disneyland, so I wasn't in the room very much. However, the room was beautiful, very clean, had a nice assortment of bath products, and has lovely pools. The lobby is very nice, with dark wood and a cozy fireplace. The one problem I had was finding my room every time I was... More

Went to this hotel on a business convention, however 80% of it was spent relaxing and enjoying the wonderful parks, Disney is known for. You always hear people talk about the "Disney Experience" but really, that is truly in the parks, not in this hotel!! The Good The location was great for walking down town Disney and getting through the... More

As a group of 7 people, we wanted to ensure we had the best Disney experience possible - which for us meant "Magic Hour", the Storyteller's breakfast, along with a easy access throughout the day (in case we wanted to come back to the hotel). Our advice? SAVE YOUR MONEY. Any of the hotels onsite offer Magic Hour - and... More

We spent the last week of February at Disneyland and stayed at the Grand Californian Hotel and Spa. We love this hotel. When you first walk in, you are welcomed into the Great Hall. Tall ceilings, tables, couches and comfortable chairs dotting the hall, a cozy fireplace with rocking chairs and a TV with mini chairs for children to watch... More

From the minute you go in the staff makes you feel like family. We were selected family of the day and got a complimentary upgrade to the suite. If it's your birthday you get the badges at check-in and a signed photo from Mickey!Even the housekeeping was great and gave us a rose and and extra chocolates when we walked... More

The service is very pleasant so a definite thumbs-up to the staff and the lobby is definitely very lovely. Also, the bath products are nice, and obviously, the location is terrific. But other than that, they're simply overcharging. The bathroom has a tiny tub and very little space. The quality and decor of the rooms is average and basic. No... More
