Overall, we enjoyed our stay at the Grand Californian! We stayed two nights and, of course, wish we stayed longer. We had a deluxe partial view and our room overlooked Grizzly River Run - it was a quiet room even though the monorail was nearby. My brother had a woods/courtyard view and he overlooked the monorail and had a bit...

This hotel has access to both Disney parks and Downtown Disney. That is a big plus. Now, hotel is a really way overdue for restoration - carpets and all furniture in the room belong to 80s. We booked room in October (we were staying in December) - 2 adults and one 4-year old. We got small room with one bunk...

Although the pools were close I still recommend staying at least once. Clean, beautiful and easy access to both Disney parks and Downtown Disney. Staff was amazing and took great care of all our needs. Our room had a view of the fireworks and they did not disappoint.

First let me start by saying we have stayed at the Disneyland Hotel for the past 14 years. We are a family of four, two sons ages 17 and 24. We decided to stay at the Grand Californian as a treat to my 24 year old who is graduating from college this year. I have to say that we did...

We stayed at the Grand for 5 nights in October. It was our first time saying at a Disney resort, we usually stay off site. We will no longer stay anywhere but this resort! Staff were incredible, they bent over backwards to get us the room we wanted, and for our party to be as close together as possible (there...

This was the worst hotel I have stayed at, the place is over priced, and they can't even give in house guest a booking in restaurants for Christmas Day, nor at the Disneyland, we have been to many Disney places and this is a big disappointed, over $5000 for 5 nights in standard room and then we ordered in room...

I was here for a work trip on New Year's Eve and the hotel was extremely busy. Room service took 2 hours for dinner and I think that could have been managed a lot better. Disney knew their expected occupancy and could have planned for it. The fireworks at midnight were visible from my room and they were beautiful.Staff was...

For how expensive this hotel is, it should have been updated a decade ago. All the furnishing and carpets are vintage 1970-80. The carpets are dated and worned out. The doors don't close to the bathroom. The couch has holes. The chairs creek. You get the picture. As far as location is concerned, it is perfect with direct access to...

We stayed in a two bedroom suite. It was spacious, clean and very comfortable for the five of us. Unfortunately, on our first night, there was an emergency water shutdown. Initially, we were horrified. Our two sons were driven to another hotel to bathe. The next morning the water took longer than expected to come back on. It did and...

As a DVC member I expect great service and a magical experience when I visit Disney properties. Our stay at the Grand Californian started terribly at the front desk. First we had to stand in a line (while other people went straight to the desk) and then wait and watch the front desk people not helping people. Of the 6...
