Overall the rooms are nice and the staff is friendly but the hotel has a lot of issues right now. 1. The pool is closed for construction. We were not told this until after we booked. 2. The construction (both pool and rooms) is noisy. 3. Because of the construction, we have to go up 3 floors for ice/vending. 4....

Planned our family's dream Disneyland vacay over Thanksgiving. We saved up for a long time to stay at what is supposed to be the BEST hotel and do all the extras (character dining, etc.). We have two small children, 6 months and 2.5 years old at the time. Upon arrival, the lobby is stunning. It was very crowded and I...

We enjoyed our trip to Disneyland and California Adventure tremendously because we stayed on site at Disney's Grand Californian. We were there for a week and had adjoining rooms with our son and his family. Another son shared our spacious room. We were very comfortable in the cozy beds. We especially enjoyed getting into California Adventure earlier than outside visitors...

Chose this hotel due to winning a vacation package, paid for a third night. Awsome experience. Room was clean and well designed. It was a standard room that came with a balcony. I did not get to check out the pool due to renovations but the hotel is phenominal and all staff was what you would expect from Disney cast...

This is my favorite of the Disney properties due mostly to its location backing Disneys California Adventure theme park. When you stay at this hotel you can get early entry into the park, one hour prior to opening. It changes day to day for early entry into different parks. One key thing you should know, is if you plan on...

The lobby, grounds, hallways, etc were all very well-kept and clean. The lobby is huge and grandly beautiful! Very rustic-y, cabin-y feeling. The location can't be beat if you're interested in Disneyland, CA Adventure, or Downtown Disney. All of the staff I encountered were very kind and helpful. There was quite a lot of construction, with the pool being closed...

My friend recently won an overnight package from Disney Land. Little did I realize we would be staying at the Disney Grand Hotel. This place is jaw dropping beautiful! I met some friends here for breakfast a few years ago but that was about the extent of it. I never thought I'd see the day I would actually get to...

Very personal service. We were treated like visiting royalty. One of the loveliest hotels we have ever stayed with. The construction was no issue and the entrance to Downtown Disney was swift and easy. Bell hop took our bags to the car while we played at Disneyland. And when they delivered the car to me they even provided excellent directions...

We stayed at The Grand Californian Hotel from February 27th-March 3rd. We loved it! It was our first time and we were very happy with our choice. The lobby is breathtaking and loved the beautiful grounds of the resort. The pools were closed for refurbishment but we knew this ahead of time and we were able to use the Disneyland...
