It's the nicest and priciest hotel option at the Disneyland Resort and it's finally getting an update! The Grand Californian Hotel & Spa has been amazing guests with its beauty and charm since it opened in 2001 and soon nearly the entire hotel will get a fresh new look to bring it more into the 21st century while sticking with its Arts & Crafts roots. Curious to see what will happen?
To start off, all rooms will receive new linens, lighter carpets, murals (featuring Chip & Dale) and unique headboards. The idea is to lighten things up a bit, modernize the furnishings and still keep an obvious inspiration to the Arts & Crafts movement of the early 20th century - popular in Californian style and architecture of the time. The bathrooms will also be updated and all the furniture will be made of real oak.
Guest rooms are not the only parts getting the love from this renovation. The concierge-level Craftsman Club will get a facelift along with redesigned pool areas and new furniture for the main lobby. Photos are yet to come to give us an idea of these new areas.
