We stayed at the Grand Californian last week for our sons first trip to Disneyland. He is 20 months old. We loved it and didn't have any issues. The location is what you pay for and we felt it was justified. We went back to the room for an afternoon nap and it made getting into California Adventure Land so... More

Cast members were amazing went above and beyond and help us with several questions .My husband is retired 20 year Navy so Disney gives us 40% off the Hotels Thank... More

A very charming hotel, with staff that are eager to please. But after a mix up with our room booking and then a subsequent change of rooms our son's car booster seat was lost - last seen on the bell service's trolley. We enquired five times with various staff at reception, concierge and bell services desks, and, while they tried... More

I rented two rooms for my daughter and her family and my husband and I. They were wonderful! Clean, bathtub and separate shower. Very Quiet, however buck bed rails squeak (put a piece of paper in the corner, it helps). Water park was a bunch of fun. Very close to Disney and Cal Adventure. Breakfast in the morning was good....

This place was perfect for us! It's the closest resort to Disneyland, and it was worth it! We booked a one bedroom suite, and I was surprised at how large it was and it had two full bathrooms. With three teens, it was perfect! They were even willing to bring up an air mattress for us (so each kid had... More

I've stayed several times at the DGC but this was the first time staying on the 6th floor with access to the Craftsman Club - what a benefit! They open the club at 6am and close at 10pm. All day long they have light food (sometimes hot food!) and drinks. Great way to load up before heading out to the... More

It is obvious that Disney hold the monopoly for the area. Only stayed there 2 nights and for the money paid it is very ordinary. Very expensive food and drinks. Staff do not offer any service. Rooms are very dated and smell 'musty'. One good thing is that the hotel is well located (close to both parks), apart from that... More

We went to Disneyland this summer for my son's first trip to any Disney park. It was also my wife's and my first time to visit Disneyland in over 30 years, so we decided to splurge and stay at the Disney Grand Californian. While a lot of reviewers were disappointed at their stay, we were quite pleased with our entire... More

I have stayed at both the Disneyland Hotel and Grand Californian at the concierge level at least 15 times over the last 20 years. I will no longer pay the premium to stay on the concierge level. It is still very convenient to just pop into the lounge and get a snack or drink but the quality of the wine... More

This hotel has a lot going for it. It's arts and crafts theme is beautiful. It's location to DCA and DL cannot be beat. The direct access to DCA allowed for easy access, especially coming back to the hotel. The villas are lovely (my woodworker spouse particularly appreciated the solid oak furniture with dovetail joints). The guest relations desk has... More
