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...

stayed in feb 2014. The entrance and valet was very quick and friendly. Showed you were at a Disney hotel right away with it's magic! Then checked in and was amazed by the "grandness" of the hotel. It was midnight and had a six hour flight and then six hour drive in to anaheim BUT, the front desk agent greeted...

This hotel is badly in need of refurbishment. The rooms are dated, worn, and aren't up to the standard you would expect from Disney. I would compare the room to a Hampton Inn. Pros - Great location - Beautiful Lobby area - Early park admission Cons - Rooms are old and in need of refurbishment. - Their "green" initiatives are...

Excellent customer service. Although rooms are very small. My stay was perfect. I stayed here before and rooms definitely need to be remodeled. It's getting outdated, but the customer services is excellent! Employees at Gift store, front desk, the customer service at Valet parking is good, but it can be better. Congrats! Joab Flores

We have given this star rating due to the very helpful, caring, and courteous person who took our call at the hotel when we had to cancel our reservation 4 days beforehand due to a death in the family. They refunded the majority of the amount which was greatly appreciated, a big thank you. Hopefully we will get to visit...

We stayed here for three nights. After a long drive and some very heavy traffic it's great to pull in and relax. The valet parking and bell staff is great; all we did was get out of the vehicle and walk right in. We never gave our van another thought until we left. We checked in early and our room...

I stayed here for my 30th birthday. I was with my other half plus 3 other friends and we all came from Australia. I really loved the hotel and especially loved the fine dining restaurant (napa) based on California wine country. The only problem I had was that our room was So far away. They really need to find a...

We recently stayed at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel and I would rate the hotel Very Good. I loved the convenience with the close proximity to the parks. Everything was in walking distance which is in direct contrast to traveling within Disney World. The hotel was beautiful and the rooms were very nice. A nice selection of places to eat within...

Room not ready, Some other guest walk into our room, bath tub would not drain, room service brought up cold dinner, the safe would not work. All this added up to waiting for someone to show up and losing time at the parks. Also the room with the premium view of the park was looking out at a tree and...
