ANAHEIM, CA—Wyndham Hotel Group added to the footprint of its namesake Wyndham Hotels and Resorts brand with the 376-room Wyndham Anaheim Garden Grove in Garden Grove, CA.
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 sq. ft. 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 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, EVP 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 sq. ft. of indoor and outdoor event facilities include two ballrooms, 10 meeting rooms and more than 6,300 sq. ft. of pre-function space. On-site event services and amenities include audio visual and presentation equipment, event staff, full-service catering and hospitality suites.

When you hear all the lodging industry projections for the months and years to come, much of the robust growth is forecast to be the result of the expected influx of travelers from China. In what could only be seen as good news for the industry, that expectation moved a little closer to reality when President Obama signed a visa waiver extension for Chinese travelers earlier this month.
