Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa at Disneyland Resort Reimagined with Meeting Planners in Mind
Also at Disneyland Resort in California, Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa is undergoing the most extensive refurbishment since its opening in 2001. The multi-phase roll-out is expected to be completed by the end of 2017. Walt Disney Imagineering developed an impressive plan that not only elevates the premium hotel and meeting experience, but also brings a modern approach to the hotel’s Arts & Crafts design style.
The hotel-wide refresh will include reimagining all guest rooms, pool areas and the concierge- level Craftsman Club, as well as new furniture for the lobby. The new resort enhancements will elevate the overall experience for meeting planners and their attendees at Disneyland Resort. Guest rooms will be completely redesigned to create a fresh sense of luxury. Every single element will be new—from the floors and walls to the furnishings, beddings and linens as well as upgraded bathrooms.
Upon entry, guests will notice hardwood flooring transition into soft, bright-toned carpeting. The room decor is a contemporary take on the Arts & Crafts style and features all-new furniture made of natural oak, specially designed for each room, as well as California-inspired artwork created by artists and Imagineers, including beautiful headboard walls with wood inlay designs featuring orange trees and Chip 'n Dale. Guests with a sharp eye will catch other uniquely Disney details throughout these newly refreshed rooms.
