    Re: DLH or DGC - which one?

    We stayed at the GCH on the last trip. Totally recommended, but this was a "spared-no-expense" kind of trip. We did the concierge level -- it was awesome. Blows every other hotel we've stayed at in the past out of the water.

    Whew. What was the room rate per night? Doesn't Concierge add another $200/night to the rate? One of my coworkers has a DVC share at the GCH&S. I'm jealous.

    Re: DLH or DGC - which one?

    Honestly, I couldn't even tell you. I procrastinated in booking the room and when I was finally ready to pay for it, all the standard GCH rooms were booked. I just absorbed the extra cost, and the concierge level ended up being the highlight of our trip.

    Every morning half of our group would head to the lounge in our PJs, and we'd eat breakfast on the balcony and watched the monorail trains zip past. It was a pretty sweet way to wake up. Then there was the added perk of taking breakfast back to the room. It wasn't anything too fancy -- bagels, cereal, fruit, etc. It was probably the most relaxing bit of the trip.

    The added cost probably delayed the next trip by a year or so, but everyone in our party agreed that it was worth it, and we'll definitely stay on the concierge level again.

    Re: DLH or DGC - which one?

    this trip for us is a "spare-no-expense" type of trip too -- since our APs expire and we are not re-newing :-(

    So here are my options:

    Standard Room at Grand California
    Upper Level Resort View at DLH (fireworks only scheduled for Sunday night)

    I have to make a choice and book this Friday!!!!

    I would pick the DLH. I think the rooms have more Disney magic to them. Also the pools way better than the GC. The only downfall, it is a long walk unless of course your in Dland and take the monorail back.

    GCH feels more like a Disney themed hotel inside and out so I would go with that for a standard room. If I could afford the suites I would chose one of the themed suites in DLH.

    If you could stay at either the Disneyland Hotel or Grand California, which one would you chose and why? Based on a standard room, pls!

    I am trying to decide on which one to stay at for our next trip!
    Do you plan to return for a trip after this trip?
    If so, then pick one for this trip. Then pick the other for the next trip.

    Re: DLH or DGC - which one?

    I think that was a smart choice. If you're paying that much for a room you don't want to look out your window and see a parking lot. I would have suggested the resort view. It probably was close to the same price as a standard room at GCH. The only way to stay at the GCH is with a premium view. We did that once, and it was awesome! We're staying at DLH during our next trip. We are going to get the premium, resort view. I am interested to see your trip report and the views you had from your hotel room once you get back!
