  • [Pictures] Disney's Grand Californian Hotel - Pictures

    My picture threads consist of images I have taken that focus on the architecture, landscape architecture, planning, design, and theming of the facilities highlighted. They may also contain short descriptions and commentary, but will not focus on construction progress or special events or memorabilia or food selections or my traveling companions. Hopefully these threads are a good introduction for those who have not seen these places yet. All killer, no filler!

    Disney's Grand Californian Hotel photographed in January 2008:
    This large hotel is an ode to the California Arts and Crafts style of the early part of the 20th century and recalls the Ahwahnee Hotel in Yosemite National Park in some of its details. It is the mountain park resort that trumps all of its predecessors, and its theme integrates perfectly with the adjoining land called Golden State in the California Adventure theme park. In fact, there is a seperate entrance to the park from the hotel, and one of the restaurants and many of the rooms have views directly into the park. The hotel is composed of several wings and has recently been enlarged with a Vacation Club area.

    Porte Cochere:



    Registration Desk:





    Elevators:



    Grand Lobby:













    Hearthstone Lounge:





    Storytellers Cafe:
    This casual restaurant is one of the most deightfully themed and detailed ones at any Disney resort.















    Napa Rose:
    The resort's upscale lounge and restaurant is another finely designed showpiece and features views into the woods of the Golden State area of California Adventure.















    Hotel Exterior:









    Pool Area:
    Several adjoining pools are on the backside of the hotel near the theme park, including the formal Fountain Pool, Mariposa Pool, and Redwood Pool with a trunk-shaped waterslide.







    Downtown Disney Entry:
    The hotel also features an entrance from the Downtown Disney restaurant and shop and entertainment area; in fact, several of the stores are housed on the ground level of one of the wings and the nearby La Brea Bakery is in a similarly themed building.









    Enjoy!

        Wonderful pictures! I've never been lucky enough to stay there, but I love to just walk through the lobby and soak in the beauty of it all! It really is a most beautiful hotel.
