Luxury Neighbor Hotel - Disney Elite

Luxury Neighbor Hotel

ersu_20171014-201201_1

 This past September the bulldozers started to roll at what was The Anabella Hotel. The property just east of Disneyland Dr on Katella had been a perennial favorite of families and business travelers for decades.

The Anabella Hotel was a Disneyland Good Neighbor within walking distance to the theme parks and Anaheim Convention Center.It was beautifully landscaped, and included the Tangerine Grill Cafe. It was a convenient location, clean, with fair sized rooms, and when I was at Walt Disney Travel Co. they always went the extra mile for our guests.

Wincome Group out of Hong Kong will build a seven story luxury hotel on the land. With a price tag of 245 million, it is being designed to AAA 4 diamond standards. "This is going to be a landmark hotel," said Paul Sanford, asset manager for Wincome. "This will be extremely luxurious and state of the art." This will be the first 4 diamond hotel off Disney property in Anaheim. Currently The Disneyland Hotel and Disney's Grand Californian Hotel and Spa are the only 4 diamond hotels in Anaheim. The Westin will feature 613 rooms, including 101 suites, three restaurants, a pool, roof-top lounge and 11 meeting rooms totaling 42,000 square feet. Rates for a standard room would range from $275 to $325 nightly. It expects to employ 600 people, including 450 full-time.

"This (Westin) hotel is a true milestone for the brand," Silverman said. "This will be the 18th Westin in California and the chain's first build in Southern California in 25 years", Noah Silverman, chief development officer at Marriott, said in a statement. This will also be the second upscale Marriott brand to be built in the Anaheim resort district. A JW Marriott is being developed near Gardenwalk.

The hotel is one of three luxury developments – two by Wincome and one by The Walt Disney Co. – the city approved last year to lure more high-end guests. In exchange, the developers will be reimbursed 70 percent of the 15 percent bed tax visitors are charged at the new hotels for 20 years.
