Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel’s Mt. Whitney Suite
One of two Presidential Suites at the Grand Californian (the other is the El Capitan Suite), both strongly suggestive of the Mission style seen throughout the resort. The Mt. Whitney Suite is embellished throughout with warm tones of green, brown, and gold, all reminiscent of nature.
In the massive living room are lovely hardwood flooring, a glowing fireplace, forest green sofa, and four easy chairs, two of which are Morris-style leather chairs, all flanked by amber-hued Craftsman standing lamps. As part of this “great space” is a dining area seating eight over which hangs a stained glass fixture; a service kitchen is nearby with a full-size refrigerator, sink, and microwave.
Off one side of the entry hall is a half bath; and on the other a guest bedroom minus a full bath.
My favorite aspect of the suite is its outdoor space with a terrace spanning the entire length of the suite as well as a gem of an eating porch (even an outdoor fireplace!) perfect for al fresco dining. And even more perfect is the superlative view of the resort’s pools and California Adventure park.
The master bedecked in eggplant hues and furnished with a king bed, easy chair, desk, bureau, and oversized TV.
Pass on through a small walk-in closet where a vanity area divides a two-part master bath: on one side is a single sink, whirlpool tub, bidet, and commode; on the other side an oversized marble shower, single sink, and a separate commode area, all enhanced with Carrera marble and mosaic flooring.
An additional bedroom with two queen beds can be added to make a 3-bedroom suite sleeping eight guests. View Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel’s Mt. Whitney Suite on the Glass Slipper Concierge YouTube channel!
