Every few years my beloved and I book a room and revel in the special vibe of the California Grand. We spend several hundred a night and enjoy every minute. My favorite thing to do is wander and look at all the little details that add to the overall ambiance. Find hand cast metal ornamentation and beautiful pottery in pools... More

Decided to make birthday special so I headed down to see Mickey! I have been an annual pass member since 2013. I visit the resort at least 3 times a year and always stay here. I'm not asking for marching bands upon check in but when you book a theme park view, you should get a theme park view. Not... More

At Disney great possibilities to have a convention. Although diner facilities near the convention were hardly to find or to crowded the area itself was convenient. Hotel facilities are excellent if you are on holidays with the kids but if you are on a business trip this is too noisy, too crowded. Rooms are comfortable but need to be upgraded.

My family and I recently stayed at the Disney Grand Californian Hotel and Spa. While I can see some of the other reviews are mixed, I can honestly say our stay was wonderful! Check in was great with Nick being very helpful in finding us a great room! We had a Woods/Courtyard view, and were on the 5th floor. We... More

Good: Location, access to the theme parks, good soundproofing, hardly heard kids unless they are running Not so good: Old hotel, tired rooms, housekeeping not up to scratch, average food, staff courtesy hit and miss, only the porter Bill seemed sincere to assist.

My daughter and I took a trip to celebrate Disneyland's Diamond Anniversary. This was the first trip for her and I had not been to Disneyland for over 30 years. The Grand Californian was a great hotel. It did take longer than usual for check-in, but after that things went very smoothly. The room was very clean and the bed... More

This is a hotel that will stun you when you first enter the grand lobby. It is beautifully crafted and decorated. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The check-in process is a breeze and you get some perks, namely some fast pass tickets and maybe a signed character picture if you're celebrating something. The proximity to the Downtown Disney...

We stayed here with our 3 kids (ages 6-9) during our Disneyland trip. It's the EASIEST way to make a Disney vacation the best it can be. The extra perks you receive--Magic Hour for ALL days you have a park pass for, private entrance into California Adventure, and easy access into Downtown Disney and Disneyland will make your stay so...

The resort is pretty amazing in regards to architecture, service and convenience. Check in went a bit slow and had to wait in a line for about 15 minutes. Place is pretty hectic in the lobby at times but I found the room to be pretty quiet for the most part. I would have like to see the hours of... More

You can enter Disneyland's California Adventure Park from this hotel with no waiting at all, as well as the Downtown Disney District. Rooms are usually $500 a night, I get the book 3 or 4 nights with one free and find other promos, the cheaper rooms go fast so book early. beds and service are great. You have to pay... More
