Disney’s Grand Californian Resort & Spa at the Disneyland Resort is about to go through a hotel-wide refurbishment to bring new magic in 2017. The refurb will include completely redesigned guest rooms, a new lobby, pool areas, as well as the Craftsman Club on the concierge level.

This refurbishment seeks to modernize the arts and crafts design of the resort, while capitalizing on guest experience. The changes are planned to be unveiled in phases, but the entire project is aimed to be completed by the end of 2017. The first phase will be the guest room redesign, which will be available for guests to enjoy starting this spring.

“Our renovation adds more luxury to this iconic Southern California hotel, while staying committed to its signature Arts & Crafts design,” said Dan Coleman, General Manager of  Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa. “We want our guests to feel they are staying in a Disney hotel that’s distinctly situated in beautiful California. The revitalized design helps convey this feeling and allows us to continue exceeding guest expectations.”

For the opening phase of the refurbishment, the new guest rooms will display a new, fresh vision of luxury from ceiling to floor – even in the new upgraded bathrooms. Utilizing interior design staples like hardwood flooring and bright colors, new fixtures, the rooms will take a new look at the Arts and Crafts design that the resort is known for. The guest rooms will also feature new furniture made from natural oak, specifically designed for each room.

Other enhancements to the resort include a redesign for the pools and surrounding areas, new furnishings for the lobby area, and an entirely new design for the Craftsman Club lounge to create more of a sophisticated tone to the experience.
