Great hotel. Wake up hit park no buses, no driving. Close to both parks and Downtown Disney. Stay here and enjoy the hotel. Napa Rose is a great restaurant. If use to Florida you will not be "welcomed homed" as you are in Florida. Have three pools and pool near the Bar which is a plus. Have a couple of...

This place is amazing! After getting off a 14hr flight, the staff were very friendly and happy for us to check in early. Just a short walk into Downtown Disney, Disneyland and California Adventure Park. A little more expensive than other hotels around but your paying for location. Having limited time (7n), we felt it was important to stay as...

The lobby is breathtaking. The location is superior. The rooms are acceptable although a bit dated. This is a rambling hotel with a lot of people everywhere. It seems they have overbuilt the infrastructure and built too many rooms in a bit of a rambling maze. The valet service stinks. We had to wait 20 minutes to obtain our car....

We stayed here for 5 nights recently for our family holiday to Disneyland. Yes this hotel is expensive there is no doubting that. We tossed up staying here versus saving a lot of money by staying outside Disneyland. Yes the hotel is tired and not the usual quality you would expect for the price. But here is my view -...

The hotel is in a great location and we have been staying here since it first opened. It is showing it's age and badly in need of a refurbishment. The staff is very average and can't compare to the friendly Disney service at the hotels in Walt Disney World in Orlando. The staff rarely says hello and some just look...

Had a wonderful time while we were there. Loved the location! Right smack int he middle of Down town Disney & Disney's California adventure. Be advised that rooms facing these location offer a Fantastic view and the sounds of Everything from early morning to late at night. We had a different view, but could still enjoy the Disneyland's fireworks from...

We love this hotel and it's location in Disneyland. It is very expensive but you are there for a good time, not a long time. :) We were disappointed that the main pool was closed while we were there. The rooms could be updated and don't have any Disney decor which our kids would have really loved. Breakfast brunch is...

This was visit #5 at Grand Californian and while some places in the hotel are showing wear and tear, the accommodations are comfortable and it was quiet in the night which is hard to find close to Disney. We will be back due to the lovely staff and the service with a smile at all hours of the day and...
