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 October Online Hotel Business Review

Feature Focus
Revenue Management: Technology and Big Data
Like most businesses, hotels are relying on technology and data to drive almost every area of their operations, but perhaps this is especially true for hotel Revenue Managers. There has been an explosion of technology tools which generate a mountain of data – all in an effort to generate profitable pricing strategies. It falls to Revenue Managers to determine which tools best support their operations and then to integrate them efficiently into their existing systems. Customer Relationship Management, Enterprise Resource Planning, and Online Reputation Management software are basic tools; others include channel managers, benchmark reports, rate shopping tools and review systems, to name a few. The benefits of technology tools which automate large segments of a Revenue Manager’s business are enormous. Freed from the time-consuming process of manual data entry, and having more accurate data available, allows Revenue Managers to focus on analysis, strategies and longer-term decision-making. Still, for most hotels, the amount of data that these tools generate can be overwhelming and so another challenge is to figure out how to effectively utilize it. Not surprisingly, there are some new tech tools that can help to do exactly that. There are cloud-based analytics tools that provide a comprehensive overview of hotel data on powerful, intuitive dashboards. The goal is to generate a clear picture, at any moment in time, of where your hotel is at in terms of the essentials – from benchmarking to pricing to performance – bringing all the disparate streams of data into one collated dashboard. Another goal is to eliminate any data discrepancies between finance systems, PMS, CRM and forecasting systems. The October issue of the Hotel Business Review will address all these important developments and document how some leading hotels are executing their revenue management strategies.
