The new JW Marriott Anaheim Resort will open on Aug. 19, 2020. Located at the Anaheim GardenWalk, and within walking distance from the Disneyland Resort, the new luxury hotel option at the family-friendly destination invites guests to “discover a kingdom all their own.”
The design of the hotel’s common areas and 466 guest rooms (including 19 suites) uses natural materials to pay tribute to Orange County’s agricultural history while also featuring modern augmented reality technology. Some guest rooms even offer fireworks views, which is the perfect spot to enjoy Disneyland’s magical nighttime spectaculars once they resume.
“The JW Marriott Anaheim Resort is presenting an unparalleled experience like never seen before,” said general manager Nusrat Mirza. “Not only elevating area offerings, but also presenting fresh, trend-forward settings to create memories, enjoy remarkable spaces, and experience one of the world’s most sought after travel destinations in an entirely new and exciting way.”
Guests can soak up the California sun at the hotel’s outdoor swimming pool, which features three large cabanas and two daybeds that can be reserved at check-in. Nearby, the JW Garden—a first-of-its-kind digital garden experience launching this fall—features an innovative augmented reality sculpture garden that brings a secret butterfly garden and digital forest to life on three steel sculptures by design studio HEAVY. Inside the garden, guests of all ages can play among digital caterpillars and butterflies, and experience sculptures that tell the story of a magical plant’s evolution from seed to tree.
The hotel’s dining experiences include the signature on-site restaurant Tocca Ferro, a full-service indoor-outdoor lobby bar called Citraculture, and the JW Market for grab-and-go bites, fruit-filled pastries, sandwiches, salads, and colorful kid-friendly treats. Also coming soon is Parkestry, the hotel’s rooftop bar and lounge with creative mixology and handcrafted libations.
Though temporarily unavailable, the JW Marriott Anaheim Resort, also has a fitness center featuring exclusive Peloton bikes, state-of-the-art equipment, and a Yoga and Zen Room with in-person and digital classes. For families traveling with children, the Family by JW kids club will offer hands-on games and activities.
“We are thrilled to create an entirely new luxury experience in Anaheim,” said Mitzi Gaskins, vice president & global brand leader for JW Marriott. “The new JW Marriott Anaheim Resort brings a modern, luxurious, and wellness-focused setting to Southern California travelers, inviting them on an enriching journey of relaxation with experiences crafted with safety and holistic well-being in mind.”
JW Marriott, Anaheim Resort is committed to guest safety and has established a Safe Meeting protocol, remapping floor layouts to comply with social distance guidelines and CDC regulations. Additional procedures have also been implemented to increase guest safety, and all associates and hotel guests are required to wear face coverings when moving throughout the hotel and in shared spaces.
