It was great to take a short stroll to the Grand Californian after long days at both parks and escape the noise and crowds. The boys loved the bunk bed and we loved the quiet. The grounds are immaculate, the staff courteous and very helpful. We have stayed at all three properties and this is the best. Worth the extra... More

The entrance to disney was right in the hotel so you didn't have to wait in any line getting in. And, onw... More

To start off, I went down to Southern California, last June, and stayed 6 days at Disneyland, and stayed at the Grand Californian. When we first drove up to the hotel, we were stopped at a booth to make sure that we were "real" guests, it also made the check-in faster for concierge guests. When we parked in front of... More

The hotel was wonderful. It was in a wonderful location and the rooms were spectacular. We paid about 70 extra dollars for a room overlooking the California Park and I must say it was worth the money. The view was incredible! The pools were wonderful, and the staff was very friendly. It was rather expensive but it was worth every... More

My mother and I stayed at the Grand Californian Feb. 25-28, 2004. We had a wonderful time! It's a beautiful hotel, well worth the extra cost. It is defiantly a 4 to 5 star upscale hotel. Families with very young kids may want to save the extra money and stay at the other Disney hotels, but if you like staying... More

We made the sacrifice (financially) to stay at this beautiful hotel. Immediately we were impressed with the entry doors! Small miscommunication with the valet (who told us valet parking was included in the room... it's not!) so we had to retrieve our car (another tip to the valet) and repark it in self parking. Check-in was very slow but our... More

My boyfriend took me to Disneyland for my birthday. We stayed at the Granda Californian Hotel. I LOVED IT. They had great room service and the bed were awsome. We had nightly turn down service and always had chocolate waiting on our pillows when we came back to snuggle. Being young and first time away from home we wanted to... More
