An Exciting New Hotel Destination Near Disneyland and the Anaheim Convention Center To Break Ground This Summer

New 600+ room luxury hotel adjacent to Anaheim Convention Center Expected to Open in Early 2020

ANAHEIM, CA. May 1, 2017 - Anaheim’s four-diamond hotel market will have a new destination available to guests in early 2020 when a luxury hotel opens at 1030 West Katella Avenue at the site of the existing Anabella Hotel. The Anabella Hotel will close in mid-August and the new hotel will begin construction soon after.

The new hotel, located immediately adjacent to the almost-completed, expanding Anaheim Convention Center (grand opening expected in September of 2017), will offer a premium destination currently unavailable to both convention and Resort travelers to Anaheim.

Guests will enjoy over 600 rooms of four-diamond accommodations including over 100 suites and a lavish Presidential Suite unlike any other room in the Anaheim market today.

Over 41,000 square feet of meeting space, perfect for business events, corporate retreats, and headquarters facilities for larger meetings at the adjacent convention center, will be available on the site. The latest in meeting technology and highest quality banquet catering will ensure that guests’ activities will be second-to-none.

When the day’s events are done, over 23,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space, accommodating both the casual and elegant diner, will be waiting, along with a rooftop bar and lounge.

For leisure travelers seeking a break from, or relaxation after, a day in Anaheim’s theme parks, unwinding in the tropical outdoor spaces or at either of two luxury pools await. Poolside dining and lounges will ensure that every day in Anaheim will be a great day for vacation travel. State of the art gym and workout facilities will also be available for guests.

“We are really excited to elevate the Anaheim experience with this new hotel in the heart of Anaheim’s Resort,” said Paul Sanford, Asset Manager for Wincome Group. “The Anaheim market for higher-end convention and leisure travelers is ready for a destination like this.”

A brand and flag for the new hotel is expected to be named soon, added Sanford.

Coming Up In The December Online Hotel Business Review

Feature Focus
Hotel Law: Issues & Events
There is not a single area of a hotel’s operation that isn’t touched by some aspect of the law. Hotels and management companies employ an army of lawyers to advise and, if necessary, litigate issues which arise in the course of conducting their business. These lawyers typically specialize in specific areas of the law – real estate, construction, development, leasing, liability, franchising, food & beverage, human resources, environmental, insurance, taxes and more. In addition, issues and events can occur within the industry that have a major impact on the whole, and can spur further legal activity. One event which is certain to cause repercussions is Marriott International’s acquisition of Starwood Hotels and Resorts Worldwide. This newly combined company is now the largest hotel company in the world, encompassing 30 hotel brands, 5,500 hotels under management, and 1.1 million hotel rooms worldwide. In the hospitality industry, scale is particularly important – the most profitable companies are those with the most rooms in the most locations. As a result, this mega- transaction is likely to provoke an increase in Mergers & Acquisitions industry-wide. Many experts believe other larger hotel companies will now join forces with smaller operators to avoid being outpaced in the market. Companies that had not previously considered consolidation are now more likely to do so. Another legal issue facing the industry is the regulation of alternative lodging companies such as Airbnb and other firms that offer private, short-term rentals. Cities like San Francisco, Los Angeles and Santa Monica are at the forefront of efforts to legalize and control short-term rentals. However, those cities are finding it’s much easier to adopt regulations on short-term rentals than it is to actually enforce them. The December issue of Hotel Business Review will examine these and other critical issues pertaining to hotel law and how some companies are adapting to them.
