I have been lagging in this review; it was last October we visited. Well, needless to say we are headed to this wonderful place again in less than 5 weeks. We stay here every year for a week and it is beyond worth it... Just so I am clear, this hotel is not just any hotel, it is wonderful due... More

They catered to ALL of us ..even the one year old. we had a beautiful room with super soft beds and towels. a turn... More

Disneyland and California Adventure are co-located along with the Downtown Disney area. The Grand Californian sits right in the middle of Downtown Disney so it is very convenient. It is a casual but upscale resort with several restaurants, pools, a spa and recreation on site. Guests who stay there can enter California Adventure through a back entrance which saves a... More

We loved our stay here. Everything you would want from a Disney hotel. Our room had a view of Downtown Disney but it was also a huge trek from the elevator. Can't think of anything bad to say about the hotel. We left a jacket in the room accidentally and they shipped it to us for free. Room prices are... More

I have to be honest, I didn't stay at this hotel, but we say in the lobby for quite awhile and chatted with the staff. It is a wonderful hotel with VERY friendly staff. In fact, the piano player even stopped as he was walking away to turn back and play happy birthday for my girlfriend. We did have a... More

We decided to go to the West coast to seek solace as school is approaching as is the anniversary of my daughter's father as well. Last year was so hard to get a call on a Sunday morning that at age 45 he died when riding his bike and every single day since has been filled with the mess of... More

WARNING! We've all had uneven experiences from time to time, even at premium hotels. Today is the last day of a four day family trip to Disneyland for my 50th birthday, and our experience at the Grand Californian has been more of a downward slide all the way. Our check-in experience and concierge floor greeting was great, Bree at front... More

We paid am exorbitant amount of money for a stay here of 2 x 2 bedroom suites for our family party of 9 people. It can be summed up by the title, massively overpriced for what you get. Not 5 star by any stretch. Despite being told on booking that we would have next door suits the check in took... More

Convenient for the parks but very expensive. Don't think I would stay again as the sound insulation in the rooms is bad - there is lots of banging and clattering from floors above and below and we could hear people talking in the room next door - and we stayed in the newest part of the hotel! One night we... More

The location of this hotel is amazing. It lets you right into California Adventure or into Downtown Disney. We stayed in a two bedroom suite that could have been a little more spacious for the 7 people we had staying in it. Granted we did have a lot of stuff with us but it was a little hard to maneuver...
