Get a Closer Look at the Grand Hall Lobby at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa at the Disneyland Resort

Earlier this year, Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa began an exciting hotel-wide renovation at the Disneyland Resort. Guest rooms  have been completely redesigned with a fresh sense of luxury and the pool deck has been refreshed with beautiful, new hardscapes to reinforce the Arts and Crafts style. This is the most extensive refurbishment since the hotel opened in 2001.

As if the lobby wasn’t already stunning enough, the six-story Grand Hall lobby was recently upgraded with new, stylish furnishings and design elements. Here’s a closer look at some of the details found in the lobby.

New contemporary designs can be found throughout furniture pieces, upholstery graphics, woodwork and carpeting.

Custom tete-a-tete chairs provide interesting design and function, while boldly upholstered sofa and chair pairings offer a comfortable, welcoming setting. Coffee tables feature beautiful inlay woodwork and leather-topped stools showcase hidden Mickey details. The redesigned space is perfect for lounging with family, relaxing with a glass of wine from the Hearthstone Lounge, or simply admiring the lobby’s focal point—the cavernous fireplace and its roaring fire.

Also, new hardwood flooring has been installed throughout the lobby, as well as new carpet. Walt Disney Imagineers wanted to keep the same California-poppy-patterned carpet design, but used different materials to make the colors and textures more vivid and dimensional. The carpet’s design was inspired by the textile work of designer William Morris, one of the earliest and most influential proponents of the Arts and Crafts movement.
