    DL Hotel or G. CA?

    I've never stayed on site at DL before, there's an event next year that I want to go to and they offer hotel packages, one with a night's stay at the DL Hotel and one with the night's stay at the G. Ca. The price difference is that the G.Ca is only 45 bucks more.

    Which should I stay at? Thoughts? Insights?

    Re: DL Hotel or G. CA?

    How much actual time will you be spending in the hotel and room?
    Can you afford the additional $45?
    Can you find other ways of not spending $45 between now and the event?
    Will you ever go to DL again? If so, would it possible to remember which hotel you chose this time, so you can choose the other one and have memories of both to compare to?

    In short: meh. There is a reason for the $45 difference: to make the decision more difficult!

    Not really sure, they haven't released the event itinerary yet.

    Can you afford the additional $45?
    Yes, I can.

    Can you find other ways of not spending $45 between now and the event?
    Yeap, starbucks isn't tasty anymore.

    Will you ever go to DL again?
    Oh dear God yes!

    If so, would it possible to remember which hotel you chose this time, so you can choose the other one and have memories of both to compare to?
    Well I am 37, but the mind hasn't gone yet...

    Thus the reason for this thread!

    If you don't mind a smaller room, then spend the extra $45 and go for the GCH. It's a nice experience.

    For us, we don't care for the smaller rooms and the smaller pool. We still enjoy hanging out in their lobby and restaurants though.

    We prefer the Sierra Tower of the DL Hotel with the DTD view and with the concierge services for our hotel stays.

    Oh, and some might call it the Dreams Tower these days...

    Enjoy!

    Thing is, I don't think we can help. I know it's a toss-up for me, hypothetically speaking (I don't actually stay overnight).
    Is this just one night?
    Or is it $45/night for a few nights?
    Or $45 total over a few nights?

    Re: DL Hotel or G. CA?

    For a traditional "Disney" stay , I would stay at DL hotel. It really is fun to ask for a view over DTD from the Dreams Tower. You can open the sliding door of your room and hear the Mark Twain whistle!!!!

    But because it is a pckg deal you may not be able to ask for the view and for only $45.00 more - then stay at the GCA.

    Usually the price difference of the rooms are more than $45.00. GCA is usually a lot more expensive than DL hotel.

    I loved the GCH - it was newer and nicer - and you can't beat the location. While the Disneyland Hotel itself was fun and nostalgic, the rooms were old and the walls were paper thin.

    I suggest the GCH. I've never been disappointed there. The DLH, in my opinion, was a big letdown.

    Re: DL Hotel or G. CA?

    For me I like DL Hotel because of the whole Disney theme. It' got pictures of the park and movies everywhere throughout the hotel. Plus it is nicer to have a little bit more money so the DL hotel is my pic.

    The G. CA is a much more eligent hotel and much nicer but doesn't have much Disney aspects to it that's why I prefer to stay at DL Hotel.

    GCH has a lot of disney - it's just more subtle.

    For such a slight price difference, I would go with GCH.

    GCH rooms are newer, walls are thicker thus not much neighbor noise. Water pressure is better at GCH also. (for those with long hair, it makes a difference).

    However, if you want theme immersion, you'll be happier at Disneyland Hotel.
    Just countin' the days til the next visit!
