Wyndham Brand Expands in U.S. with First Anaheim Hotel

PARSIPPANY, N.J.—Wyndham Hotel Group has opened the 376-room Wyndham Anaheim Garden Grove in Garden Grove, Calif. The recently renovated property, a Disneyland Good Neighbor Hotel, offers family-friendly guestrooms with bunk beds for kids, high-speed wireless internet access, three on-site restaurants and bars, shuttle service to area attractions and businesses, and approximately 36,000 square feet of function space that can accommodate up to 1,800 attendees.

Owned by OHI Resort Hotels LLC and managed by Pacific Hospitality Group, Wyndham Anaheim Garden Grove is situated at the center of the Anaheim area’s popular leisure and business destinations, located within two miles of attractions like Disneyland Resort and the Anaheim Convention Center.

The addition represents a significant step for the Wyndham brand in catering to group and leisure travel business while furthering Wyndham Hotel Group’s strategic efforts to bring the upscale brand to key urban and resort markets in the United States. Since 2013, two additional Southern California hotels, Wyndham San Diego Bayside and Wyndham Santa Monica at the Pier, have joined the portfolio, along with city-center properties in New York City, Boston, Philadelphia, and Dallas, among others.

“In addition to being located near key cities like Los Angeles and San Diego, Anaheim itself is a major tourism destination that draws millions of visitors each year,” said Keith Pierce, executive vice president of brand operations for Wyndham Hotel Group. “Having a centrally located property in this important market—a market that is established and difficult to penetrate—is an exciting milestone for the Wyndham brand’s growth. With its extensive meeting space, family-focused offerings, and service-oriented staff, we know Wyndham Anaheim Garden Grove will be a wonderful addition and will go above and beyond to meet guests’ needs.”

The hotel’s nearly 36,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor event facilities include two spacious ballrooms, 10 flexible meeting rooms, and more than 6,300 square feet of pre-function space. On-site event services and amenities include state-of-the-art audio visual and presentation equipment, dedicated event staff, full-service catering, and hospitality suites.

“We are extremely pleased to be partnering with the Wyndham brand and providing a beautifully renovated hotel in the Anaheim area to Wyndham’s Southern California collection,” said Steve Arnold, president and chief operating officer for Pacific Hospitality Group. “We are also delighted with our new upper-upscale designation provided by J.D. Power and Associates and we have enhanced our operations to match this distinction. With 376 guestrooms and suites, 36,000 square feet of flexible meeting space, and the newly constructed California Grill Restaurant, Blend Coffee Bar, and Trinitas Cellars Wine Bar, the resort is well positioned to continue to serve the discerning leisure and business traveler.”

Other hotel offerings include a 1,500-square-foot fitness center, a business center, a pool and hot tub with private cabanas, and a library. Guests also have access to 24-hour room service, a gift shop and an on-site Disney Desk where they can purchase tickets and obtain information about nearby Disney parks.
