- What's Included
OverviewPut yourself in the center of Disneyland® Resort and enjoy premium accommodations and rich dining experiences within a warm, relaxing environment that fosters the building of lifetime memories. Located next to Disney's California Adventure Park and the Downtown Disney® District, the visionary Disney's Grand Californian Hotel exemplifies craftsman-style architecture with roaring lobby fireplaces, rock-hewn foundations and soaring beamed ceilings.
This hotel is too big. I was unlucky enough to have a room far away from the elevators. Like really far... The floors are too big, it took forever to get to and from my room.It's not up to the standards you'd expect from Disney. It's like any other hotel that is trying to look like a Colorado Ski Lodge.The self park is clear across the street. The internet was super slow too.You're way better off at the Disneyland Hotel if you want to stay on property. The rooms are bigger, the floors are reasonably sized, the internet is faster, and it is what you'd expect from Disney, with mouse shaped faucets, and cool Disney pictures and headboards and stuff.
Beautiful hotel. My daughter was obsessed with the pool and the fact that it looked like Mickey. I would suggest to the park to bring out portable heaters in the evening for parents who are just hanging out so their children can swim. As I was exhausted from the parks I didn't want to swim but I wanted my daughter to still have fun so we went to the pool and I was freezing. I must have had 10 towels over me. Yes it is nice in California but when the sun goes down in the fall it is cold. They have a great activity schedule and they have a direct entrance to California Adventure which is very nice.
This property is outstanding. The rooms are spacious, the beds are comfortable, and the hotel is beautiful. The best part is that you ave access to California Adventure directly from the hotel. The pool area is terrific, and there are good restaurants within the hotel. the staff is friendly.
After arriving in our room (#3164), we noticed we could not connect to the internet via phones, iPad, or laptop. Clearly, something was wrong. We immediately phoned the front desk and their suggestion was to restart the device. In this day and age with all of the Wi-Fi networks out there, I think I know how to connect . This did not work and I asked them to send an IT person up as we were headed into the park. Returned from the park around 4pm. There was no indication that anyone had been there. I called front desk again and reiterated the problem. They said they would sent IT up. Left hotel for dinner and returned around 9:30pm. Again, no internet. Called front desk and they stated that 'internet is not guaranteed at any of the Disneyland hotels". What? It's 2016! They said IT was gone for the day. OK, great. She also said that some rooms are just too far away (I suspect our room) to get reliable internet.IMHO..when paying that much for a hotel the internet should available.So...if you arrive at the "Grand Californian" and cannot connect to the internet from your room, SWITCH ROOMS IMMEDIATELY.On a side note: I agree with other posters that rooms are dated. Staff was friendly (albeit not helpful with internet). Paradise Pier has recently been remodeled, is not as crowded, much less expensive and just across the street. If I had to stay on-site, I would choose Paradise Pier.Although next time, I will probably just get an offsite hotel. The benefits of staying on-site just don't outweigh the cost and issues with this hotel.
We had two teens and two adults and were very comfortable in a room that had a daybed in addition to two queens. The bathroom setup is as family friendly as can be with the sink outside the bath and toilet room. Hotel rooms are outdated and tired but all was forgiven as it was very clean and of Disney standard. For the price I would have liked a nicer room but we paid for convenience. The lobby was lovely but crowded with conference people. Loved how they put out baskets of fresh towels and sheets every day (I assume) for anyone to grab as needed. Another family friendly detail is a rack of hooks for wet towels. Nice small porch off room - fresh air. With 4 adults in a room it's nice to know where your towel is! Overall good stay and will change consider staying again.
