ANAHEIM—R.D. Olson is commencing construction on the six-story, 221-room Courtyard by Marriott hotel here within walking distance of the Disneyland theme park.
The Irvine, CA-based general contractor was selected by owner Northwest Hotel Corporation to construct the $34 million hotel, which is slated for June 2015 completion.
The Courtyard by Marriott Anaheim features design elements that will appeal to the leisure sector that predominates hotel demand in the area, according to Marriott International. The hotel will showcase family-friendly features such as bunk beds and spacious bathrooms in each guest room, and offer Alpine-inspired views of Disneyland’s Matterhorn ride. Guest amenities include a 20,000-square-foot water and recreation park with slides, water cannons and tipping buckets, as well as a pool and spa, outside dining space, lounge, gift shop and meeting space.
“We are able to take our experience incorporating Marriott’s newest Gen Next design in the Courtyard by Marriott Irvine Spectrum, as well as our experience across multiple Marriott brands, and build on those concepts to integrate additional family-friendly features into this hotel,” stated Joseph G. Cervantes, senior executive vice president of operations for R.D. Olson Construction.
R. D. Olson most recently broke ground on the 170-room SpringHill Suites by Marriott in Downtown Burbank, Calif., and is in the process of a significant hotel conversion near Los Angeles International Airport.
