Disney Vacation

Staff are friendly and helpful despite how busy they were. Hotel was pricey but the location can't be beat. We were there during exceptionally hot days and I felt like the hotel should have anticipated more people to be at the hotel during the afternoon. Many people were camped out in the lobby waiting to depart to the airport in the afternoon because it was too hot to be at the park. The pool area needs more shaded areas for lounge chairs. All in all we liked this hotel and would go back, it's location allowed us to enjoy more time at the park and lets be honest Disney is expensive.

Best location on Disney property

We love staying at any of the Disneyland Resort properties, but none of them beat the location of the Californian Hotel. If you need to get to your room for a nap or an item left behind, it is so easy to access! The lobby area is beautiful. Rooms are nice. Of course the down side is the price per night!

Great Disney Trip

My husband and I went for a few days to Disney for the first time without kids in 25 years. The Grand Californian had everything we would want for a great adults holiday. Beautiful room, great proximity to parks, delicious food, attentive service and a wonderful bar. We will likely make this a yearly tradition!

A great Disney experience

We have made over 10 trips to Walt Disney World, but this was our first trip to Disneyland. The hotel theming was beautifully done and exceptional Disney. The location was fantastic and so convenient to the parks. The hotel staff met every expectation, especially Rudy at the front desk who exceeded the typical Disney friendliness and helpfulness. The room was clean, well-appointed, and comfortable... equivalent or better to the Deluxe level resorts at WDW. My only gripe was that the snack service location wasn't open at 6:15am and it was usually closed by 9pm... not very convenient hours for park warriors like my family.

The perfect place for Disneyland stays!

The hotel has a very comfortable style with excellent staff to meet every need. Every detail of this crafstman style hotel is complete. As soon as you walk through the door of the hotel, you get a great feeling of a warm and comfortable atmosphere. The location for access to the Disneyland and California Adventure parks is perfect! Our family doesn't stay any other place now!

Time-saving tip: In Hotel

The cafe down on the park level of the hotel close to the spa, has a great selection of quick food options for a meal or just a snack and items can be billed to the room.
