My husband and I stayed at Disney's Paradise Pier hotel on DVC points if only because the DVC villas at the Grand Californian were booked for the three nights we wanted to stay.
The hotel is a pretty far journey from Disneyland but slightly closer to California Adventure. There are rooms of the hotel that actually overlook the DCA park! The walk to the parks includes crossing the street to the Grand Californian, walking through the sister hotel's lobby, and trekking through Downtown Disney before making your way to the esplenade that takes you to the main entrance to either park.
The hotel was nice, a step up from a Four Points by Sheraton, and had a whimsical beach motif throughout. There are restaurants and a gift shop on the main floor, but beware of the single bank of elevators: it's impossible to go down in the morning because every other person in the hotel is trying to, too! Tip: if you need to use the elevator and can't use the stairs, press the "up" button and go up, then you'll already be on the elevator when it goes down.
