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.

Social Media: Engagement is Key

There are currently 2.3 billion active users of social media networks and savvy hotel operators have incorporated social media into their marketing mix. There are a few Goliath channels on which one must have a presence (Facebook & Twitter) but there are also several newer upstart channels (Instagram, Snapchat &WeChat, for example) that merit consideration. With its 1.86 billion users, Facebook is a dominant platform where operators can drive brand awareness, facilitate bookings, offer incentives and collect sought-after reviews. Twitter's 284 million users generate 500 million tweets per day, and operators can use its platform for lead generation, building loyalty, and guest interaction. Instagram was originally a small photo-sharing site but it has blown up into a massive photo and video channel. The site can be used to post photos of the hotel property, as well as creating Instagram Stories - personal videos that disappear from the channel after 24 hours. In this regard, Instagram and Snapchat are now in direct competition. WeChat is a Chinese company whose aim is to be the App for Everything - instant messaging, social media, shopping and payment services - all in a single platform. In addition to these channels, blogging continues to be a popular method to establish leadership, enhance reputations, and engage with customers in a direct and personal way. The key to effective use of all social media is to find out where your customers are and then, to the fullest extent possible, engage with them on a personal level. This engagement is what creates a personal connection and sustains brand loyalty. The February Hotel Business Review will explore these issues and examine how some hotels are successfully integrating social media into their operations.
