JW Marriott, part of Marriott International, Inc., has announced the opening of the JW Marriott, Anaheim Resort set to take place on Wednesday, August 19, 2020. Located at the Anaheim GardenWalk, just steps from Disneyland Resort® and the Anaheim Convention Center, the Anaheim hotel provides travelers a luxury, curated experience that exudes warmth and peace.
Whether you visit to work, learn, or play, be among the first guests to take part in a luxurious stay in one of the property’s 466 lavish guest rooms, including 19 suites with quiet floors. Boasting barn door entrances to closets and bathrooms and large walk-in showers with stand-alone bathtubs and vanities, each space emanates luxury and ease.
Infused with modern art and augmented reality technology, while inspired in its design by Orange County’s diverse agricultural history, JW Marriott, Anaheim Resort invites travelers to discover a kingdom all their own with enlightening moments found at every corner. Stunning architectural designs that bring an equestrian farming concept to life radiate throughout the property’s entirety, beginning at its entrance with a thin steel art installation–featuring a harvester planting a seed–that disappears depending on the angle of the onlooker. Guests will delight in eye-catching, modern décor featuring handpicked marble flooring, a glass-blown chandelier, and nature-inspired honeycomb concepts throughout, highlighting natural materials, rustic tones, and a warm color palette.
When permitted, the new property is a perfect venue for hosting romantic weddings, corporate meetings, and social events safely, as California’s gorgeous weather welcomes guests to use the hotel’s 43,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor function space, as well as pre-function areas with stunning floor-to-ceiling windows. The Grand Ballroom measures at 13,440 square-feet, set to engage up to 1,400 guests in its entirety, as well as 15 additional meeting rooms thoughtfully designed to bring people together. Breakout spaces offer an opportunity for creative thinking and collaboration, and its one-floor design provides convenience and ease of access for permissible group sizes.
JW Marriott, Anaheim Resort remains committed to guest safety and has established a Safe Meeting protocol, remapping floor layouts to be within social distance guidelines and in accordance with CDC regulations. Additional procedures have been implemented to increase guest safety including updates to food and beverage programs and low touch meeting procedures.
Additionally, as part of the Marriott Commitment to Clean, JW Marriott, Anaheim Resort welcomes guests with company-wide guidelines required by the Marriott Global Cleanliness Council and designed with enhanced health and safety standards including:
- Updated training protocols for all associates
- Additions to cleaning regiment designed to set an even higher standard of cleanliness
- All associates are required to wear a face covering as a part of their uniform
- All hotel guests are required to wear face coverings when moving throughout the hotel and in common, shared spaces
- Modifications to associate-guest protocols have been developed to be consistent with recommended social distancing guidelines and abide by local regulations
Guests soak up the California sun at the hotel’s refreshing outdoor swimming pool, complete with three large cabanas and two day beds available for reservation upon check-in. Just across the way, the JW Garden features an innovative augmented reality sculpture garden that brings an inspiring Secret Butterfly Garden and Digital Forest to life on top of three steel sculptures by design studio HEAVY. Launching this fall, this first-of-its-kind digital garden experience transports guests into a serene space to plant seeds of imagination and personalize their fantastical trees. Inside the garden, guests play amongst digital caterpillars and butterflies, and experience Zen-like sculptures that tell a narrative of a magical plant’s evolution from seed to sapling to tree, and guests are enabled to nurture their trees and grow their relationship with the hotel as high as possible.
Though temporarily unavailable, the JW Marriott, Anaheim Resort is complete with access to an expansive fitness center featuring exclusive Peloton bikes and state-of-the-art equipment.
