Inside the Grand Californian - Page One

All shots taken and originally posted New Years Eve 12/31
Section reconfigured and revamped 1/2

The Grand Californian Hotel is the new luxury hotel for the Disneyland Resort. Much of the design (as well as much of the floor plan) borrows from the Wilderness Lodge. In the shot below, you can see its location between the two parks (that's the Matterhorn behind it) - with the adjacent mall on the middle left of the photo

While the exterior isn't as well designed as the Wilderness Lodge, (they really missed it here) the real appeal of this hotel lies when you glide on past the stained glass electric entry doors into the main lobby

The Main Lobby

Although the space is the same in size as the Wilderness Lodge - the theme is California Craftsman. The level of detail, and fit and finish shown, are quite remarkable. Get ready to scroll down a bit here...

The view above is looking towards the front of the hotel - where the check in desk is located, it's taken from one of the middle floors. Below you can take a look across the lobby sideways... (looking to the elevators)

Below is another view up from the lobby floor into the high ceiling...

The intricacy of the design makes for all sorts of unique vistas as you circle around this main room at different levels... they do have nice stairways from the sixth (Concierge) to the fifth levels, but all other travels between floors require use of the elevators
