The Grand Pacific Palisades Resort is the absolute perfect place for families vacationing in Southern California. You are a stone's throw from Lego Land, and in between Disneyland and Sea World.
I was surprised at the very easy, efficient check in process. Probably the fastest I can remember in years. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful in assisting towards my room. They were also quick to allow a late check out time of 11am that really helped in getting some extra sleep!
The room was more like an apartment--equipped with kitchen area, sitting room, large bedroom, and HUGE bathroom. Everything was perfectly clean and tidy. The bed was AMAZING. I can't remember when I've had a full night's rest without waking. Aaaaahhh...if I could just relocate that bed to my own house...
The hotel was bursting with happy families. The pool area is a child's dream--complete with waterworks, slides, and rocket ships. Mom and dad can enjoy the sun and bbq area next to the pool while the kiddies splash around. There is also an awesome activity room for kids to play games in the early evening. Best part--even though it is 'kid friendly', the resort was also very quiet at night.
I can't wait to come back and visit for a longer stay. The hotel is very close to Karl Strauss Brewery for those who want to venture close by to eat. The views are amazing.
Check out was also a dream. Simple instructions to dial one button and confirm checkout.
The prices are also EXTREMELY reasonable for a resort in Southern California. Can't beat it! Looking forward to my next visit. Thank you to the staff for making my visit so wonderful.
