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 August Online Hotel Business Review

Feature Focus
Food & Beverage: Multiplicity and Diversity are Key
The challenge for hotel food and beverage operations is to serve the personal tastes and needs of an increasingly diverse population and, at the same time, to keep up with ever-evolving industry trends. In order to accomplish this, restaurateurs and hoteliers have to flex their creative muscles and pull out all the stops to satisfy their various audiences. One way to achieve this is to utilize existing food spaces in multiple ways at different times of the day. Lunch can be casual and fast, while dinnertime can be more formal and slower paced. The same restaurant can offer counter service by day but provide table service by night, with a completely different menu and atmosphere. Changes in music, lighting, uniforms and tabletop design contribute to its transformation. This multi- purpose approach seeks to meet the dining needs of guests as they change throughout the day. Today’s restaurants also have to go to great lengths to fulfill all the diverse dietary preferences of their guests. The popularity of plant-based, paleo, vegan, and gluten and allergen-free diets means that traditional menus must evolve from protein-heavy, carb-loaded offerings to those featuring more vegetables and legumes. Chefs are doing creative things with vegetables, such as experimenting with global cuisines or incorporating new vegetable hybrids into their dishes. Another trend is an emphasis on bold and creative flavors. From chili oil to sriracha to spicy maple syrup, entrees, desserts and beverages are all being enhanced with spice and heat. The August issue of the Hotel Business Review will document the trends and challenges in the food and beverage sector, and report on what some leading hotels are doing to enhance this area of their business.
