R.D. Olson Construction broke ground on a 223-key, dual-brand Hilton Garden Inn and Home2 Suites just two blocks from Disneyland Resort in Anaheim’s growing Resort District.
The 220K SF property will have a 100-room Home2 Suites and a 123-room Hilton at 1441 South Manchester Ave.
“We are honored to partner with Nara Investments to deliver a dynamic new hotel offering in the fast-growing Anaheim market,” R.D. Olson President Bill Wilhelm said in a news release.
The Hilton will be a full-service hotel with a modern design, according to the news release. The Home2 Suites rooms will feature a full-sized sleeper sofa, workspace and in-suite kitchen with a refrigerator.
Guests at either hotels will have access to shared amenities such as a restaurant, bar, pool, hot tub, kids splash pad, lobby, 1K SF of meeting space, 1,500 SF of retail space and valet parking.
“Dual branding has become a major trend in the hospitality industry, with guests benefiting from a wider variety of experiences and choices and owners benefiting from greater efficiencies,” Wilhelm said.
The groundbreaking comes as Disneyland is slated to open its much-hyped Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge attraction. The 14-acre theme park is expected to boost attendance at the complex and bring in visitors from all over the world for years to come.
In 2017, Disneyland brought in 18.3 million visitors, according to a 2017 Themed Entertainment Association/AECOM report. Anaheim attracted more than 24 million visitors for the year.
Olson said the new dual-branded hotel will add much-needed supply for Disneyland visitors and surrounding neighbors.The project is expected to be completed by the end of 2020. The ground-up construction will take place on the former site of a Quality Inn.
R.D. Olson Construction is working alongside BRR Architecture and Studio 11 Design on the project.
