Disney's Grand Californian Hotel and Spa in Anaheim is a luxury resort displaying marvelous American Craftsman architecture. This style of design flourished during the late 1800s and early 1900s, and it's both elegant and rustic. There are more than 1,000 rooms at this tranquil hotel, which offers pool, courtyard and theme park views. The Grand Californian offers a water-lover's paradise, with a large swimming pool, a water slide that looks like a redwood tree, two smaller pools, and a pool just for kids. Several ballrooms and meeting spaces, an elaborate spa and fitness facility, and a gift shop round out the full hotel experience. Guests won't be short on dining options, with two lounges, a snack bar, the family-oriented Storyteller's Cafe, and the first-class restaurant Napa Rose all on-site.

Neighborhood
The Grand Californian looks out on Disneyland and is right next to Disney California Adventure. Disneyland, which opened in 1955, is packed with both cutting-edge and traditional rides and shows, and Disney California Adventure recreates scenes of California's yesteryears. For instance, a section of the park purposely resembles 1920s Los Angeles. Between these two parks is Downtown Disney, a lavish shopping and dining district with a huge range of activities on offer.
Hints and tips
Guests of the hotel have their own access for entering and exiting Disney California Adventure, making it easy to slip away from the park for a swim or a nap.
During check-in, ask the desk clerk if you can get a complimentary room upgrade - there are occasional openings and it's worth inquiring about.

Wonderful family Disney experience

All staff members were very helpful from the minute we arrived until we left. We were able to check in as soon as we arrived and get keys that were automatically activated when our rooms became available. That allowed us to get to the park right away and start enjoying our time. The rooms were cleaned well every day and we had turn down service every night. Every request was promptly met. The proximity to the park entrances is unmatched!

1st Disney trip for the kids!

This hotel was a HUGE splurge for our family. The location is absolutely perfect for both Parks. The pool area was awesome. The lobby area and rooms (we had 8 rooms in our group) just lacked that special something we thought we would get for almost $500/night. The view of fireworks from our balcony was a special treat. Our fridge would not cool properly, 2 (accidental) fire alarms went off during our stay which made helping elderly family down stairs in a hurry very difficult, and our room had all glass cups which for Disney, made it tough for our little ones. Plus the only Disney themed thing in our entire room was the shower curtain. We just expected a more magical experience. But all in all, we can't complain.

family trip

You definitely pay for location more than anything at this hotel. If you are going to Disneyland, this hotel is great for quick trips back to the room. We have stayed at other Disney based hotels, and this hotel did not quite have the same Disney feel to it. The room was a standard hotel room with a little Disney flare added into it. We expected a little more from the staff at the hotel since it was Disney based. Upon our arrival, with several bags and a stroller, not once did one bell service person offer to help us into the hotel. We had to make a couple trips to get the bags all into the hotel and then up to the room. Overall, it is a nice enough hotel with a wonderful location, but most likely we will walk a few more minutes and try to find a cheaper place to stay next time we visit.

Great place buuuut...

Great Hotel! Convenient and clean. However, as you know it's pricey and staying across the street for much less per night is probably just a value I can't pass up next time.

A "magical" experience

My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful get-away ... just the two of us. Casually enjoying the hotel's many amenities, and the charming Disney influences. I'm always worried about noise, but the rooms are virtually soundproof! We'll be back.

Stay somewhere else

The only thing this hotel has going for it is the location. Rooms are incredibly small and not very clean. Service was just ok and there was no where to get food at the hotel since their Whitewater snacks and Napa Rose was closed. This will be our last stay at the Grand.

Awesome location, mediocre room

While the location was perfect for convenience to easily walk to Disney and California Adventure, the room was very ordinary for the price. The bathroom was actually really small and cramped and the room was pretty small itself. It barely had any "Disney" theme to the room. The lobby was gorgeous, but they could do a better job with the rooms.
