The City of Anaheim has wanted a Westin Hotel to the Resort District for nearly 20 years, and is getting its wish: the Wincome Group announced that the 4-Diamond hotel it is building on the site of the Anabella Hotel will carry the Westin brand.
The new hotel will be the first Westin in Southern California in more than 25 years.
The Westin Anaheim Resort will be one of three new 4-Diamond hotels coming to Anaheim under the Hotel Incentive Policy created by the city in 2015. The Anaheim City Council voted in 2016 to approve the Wincome Group’s project and participation in the Hotel Incentive Policy.
Owner-developer Wincome Group is building the $245 million-dollar project immediately beside the Anaheim Convention Center’s (ACC) soon-to-open expansion and directly across from the Disneyland Resort. It will rise on the site of the Anabella Hotel, which had also been a Wincome Group property for almost 20 years.
Groundbreaking on the the 7-story, 613-room luxury property takes place on September, with construction commencing in October. The hotel is expected to open its doors in 2019.
