Three Hotels Offer a Variety of Accommodations, Amenities and Leisure Activities
At the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California, leisure and business travelers will find three Disney Hotel properties, each with a distinctive style: the luxurious surroundings and California Craftsman architecture of Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa, the classic Disney magic and charm of the Disneyland Hotel, and the California beachfront-themed Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel.
Offering a variety of accommodations, surroundings and amenities, all three hotels feature the famous Disney touch for quality, service and hospitality. The Disneyland Resort hotel district now has nearly 2,400 guestrooms and suites.
As part of the Disneyland Resort, the hotels are steps away from the eclectic mix of dining, entertainment and recreational features of the Downtown Disney District. Of course, Disneyland and Disney California Adventure parks are just a short walk away from any of the Disney hotels.
DISNEY’S GRAND CALIFORNIAN HOTEL & SPA
Capturing the spirit of early California through inspiring design and daring architecture, Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa is a deluxe 948-room resort hotel property, offering a premium option for business or pleasure visits to the Disneyland Resort.
This AAA Four-Diamond hotel is the first Disney resort hotel in the world to be located inside a theme park—Disney California Adventure—making stays at the deluxe hotel a uniquely themed experience.
Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa celebrates the romantic Arts & Crafts movement of early 20th century California. Designed to capture the artistic exploration of California’s coastlines with its Monterey pines and redwood forests, the hotel is layered with the memories of the arroyo craftsmen, the mission pioneers and the Plein Air school of painters.
Among the deluxe guestrooms are standard rooms, Artisan suites, two vice presidential suites and two presidential suites. In addition, the Resort offers more than 20,000 square feet of meeting and banquet space, ranging from the 12,000-square-foot Sequoia ballroom to smaller conference rooms and a sophisticated Boardroom.
The deluxe hotel features 24-hour room service, its own entry gate into Disney California Adventure park, and rooms that overlook both the theme park and the exciting Downtown Disney District. For corporate meeting guests, the hotel features meeting planner offices, a business center and separate meetings and conventions check-in facilities.
Food and beverage facilities include the award-winning Napa Rose restaurant, Storytellers Cafe and Hearthstone Lounge. Guests will enjoy two heated pools and a themed water slide, two whirlpools, children’s pool, and a concierge level with upgraded amenities and services.
At the Disneyland Hotel, guests will find a family vacation resort brimming with Disney magic and benefits. Offering 969 rooms, the hotel features a variety of restaurants and lounges, shops, three swimming pools and a sandy beach, among other amenities.
Upgrades and enhancements currently underway at the Disneyland Hotel include the construction of a new pool and water play area, renovations to the existing Never Land pool, the creation of a new restaurant and bar, and the re-theming of all three of the hotel’s guest room towers. The new water play area, featuring slides and a splash pool in an architectural design reminiscent of the 20th Century Disneyland Hotel Monorail Station, is scheduled to open in summer 2011.
The Disneyland Hotel restaurants provide everything from fine cuisine to informal food-to-go to an all-you-can-eat buffet full of character. Steakhouse 55 offers steak and prime rib in an atmosphere reminiscent of Golden Age Hollywood. Goofy’s Kitchen, the popular all-you-can-eat buffet, showcases delicious food with a magical ingredient: the lovable Disney characters who visit with guests throughout the restaurant. In Summer 2011, the former Hook’s Pointe, Croc’s Bits ‘n’ Bites, Wine Cellar and Lost Bar location will reopen as a “smart casual” Polynesian-themed restaurant and bar taking its name, “Trader Sam’s,” from the familiar “head salesman” on the banks of the Disneyland Jungle Cruise.
Peaceful moments with a freshly brewed cup of coffee and a pastry are the specialty at The Coffee House, a full-service gourmet coffee shop also featuring espresso, cappuccino, specialty coffee drinks, muffins and fresh-baked cookies.
For families or individuals preferring a high degree of service, the Disneyland Hotel features concierge-level rooms with upgraded in-room amenities and complimentary access to the exclusive concierge lounge. Meetings are easily accommodated within the hotel’s 136,000 square feet of function space, and a business center provides a variety of services.
