We had a three bedroom suite which was outstanding in every respect. Great location close to everything. Loved the foyer. We chose to pay extra to join the club which gave us access to the private room on the 6th floor at any time for food and drink all day. Got our park hopper tickets there which gave us early...

We were super excited for our stay here and were amazed by the gorgeous lobby as we walked into the hotel. As far as service, it was spectacular as always by Disney. While the hotel is pretty, we were slightly disappointed with our room...just basic. Our view was just ok...most of it was the side wall of Goofy's Sky School,...

We stayed at this hotel for a Disney spring break staycation. The Good: The hotel itself is beautiful and grand! As soon as we entered the valet area the Disney service started! Fast, and friendly check in that made you feel that they would go above and beyond to make your stay magical. Not to mention the fast pass you...

We live local and have stayed here 3 times: we keep coming back for the location only. Nothing about it feels worth the $650/night we paid. All 3 times same experience: awesome valet, check in service and lobby. The rooms are small and extremely dated, and we have had none or 1 bottle of amenities (for a family of 4-6),...

The location could not be beat. We were in town for the Disney marathon and location was perfect, with easy access to California Adventure and Downtown Disney. The bad part is this hotel is old and in desperate need of an upgrade. Unfortunately I have found this with several Disney hotels. Very disappointing considering how expensive it is.

I have stayed in this resort at least four times over the past 8 years and I had my best stay yet this past holiday season. I get the impression that they have been working to improve the rooms and it shows. The best part of staying here is their location in proximity to the parks. Convenient is an understatement....

I love this hotel due to the Arts and Crafts decor. It is very thoughtfully done. There is even a free tour you can sign up for about the design history and implementation in the hotel. We were the only ones on the tour - it would probably bore the kids and few people would want to take the time...

Overall, we enjoyed our stay at the Grand Californian! We stayed two nights and, of course, wish we stayed longer. We had a deluxe partial view and our room overlooked Grizzly River Run - it was a quiet room even though the monorail was nearby. My brother had a woods/courtyard view and he overlooked the monorail and had a bit...

This hotel has access to both Disney parks and Downtown Disney. That is a big plus. Now, hotel is a really way overdue for restoration - carpets and all furniture in the room belong to 80s. We booked room in October (we were staying in December) - 2 adults and one 4-year old. We got small room with one bunk...

Although the pools were close I still recommend staying at least once. Clean, beautiful and easy access to both Disney parks and Downtown Disney. Staff was amazing and took great care of all our needs. Our room had a view of the fireworks and they did not disappoint.
