In theory I'd say you're right. However I'm not sure where your comparisons come from. I'm sure it's just me again, but I'd pick the look of the Grand Californian over that of the Contemporary any day. Are you saying the decaying concrete box that holds together the Contemporary is somehow more elegant than the GC? I also think the outside of the GC is at least on par with the Wilderness Lodge. I think it has a graceful yet warm architecture with its curvy roofs, warm rockwork and nifty craftsmanship. It's nice and handsome, not too prissy or fussy. Sure the lobby isn't quite up there with the Floridian version, but I don't find the place particularly offensive.
Now the Disneyland Hotel and the Paradise Pier Hotel, that I can agree with... But I'm sure that will change one day as well. Perhaps during their next 2001, I don't know.
