This might seem a tough time to open a new hotel — especially one located near a closed theme park resort. But a new property is getting ready to welcome guests in Disneyland's home of Anaheim.
The 326-room Radisson Blu will open the week of October 26. The 12-story hotel is located across the 5 from the Disneyland Resort, just north of Disney Way at 1601 S. Anaheim Blvd.
"We are thrilled to continue building momentum for the Radisson Blu brand in the Americas with our first West Coast property in California," Aly El-Bassuni, Chief Operating Officer, Americas for the Radisson Hotel Group, said.
Radisson Blu might be an "upper-upscale" brand for the chain, but the Anaheim property is designed for families, with more than 130 rooms including bunk beds.
Amenities include a table-service restaurant, FireLake Grillhouse & Cocktail Bar, and Blu SkyBar, located atop the hotel's roof. The roof is also home to one of the hotel's two heated pools.
The hotel is offering "A Magical Opening" package, which includes complimentary parking for one car, a $25 Disney Visa gift card per night, and a $25 per night hospitality credit for use at any hotel dining location. Disneyland annual passholders who buy the package can also get an additional 20 percent discount on food purchases at the hotel. And Radisson Blu Anaheim is implementing Radisson's 20-step safety protocol, including enhanced safety measures and disinfection procedures.
You can book the new Radisson Blu Anaheim, as well as the "A Magical Opening" package, through our travel partner.
