Radisson Blu Anaheim—the 4th Radisson Blu location in the U.S. and the first on the West Coast—opened Nov. 16, 2020, just four blocks from the entrance to Disneyland Park.

The 326-room hotel from Radisson Hotel Group’s “upper-upscale” brand has 20 corner-view suites, 40 pairs of connecting rooms, and more than 130 rooms with bunk beds, making it an excellent option for families visiting Anaheim.

“We are thrilled to continue building momentum for the Radisson Blu brand in the Americas with our first West Coast property in California,” says Aly El-Bassuni, chief operating officer, Americas, Radisson Hotel Group. “Located just a short distance from Orange County’s premier attractions, Radisson Blu Anaheim serves as the perfect backdrop for travelers looking to have a magical stay.”

The hotel has embraced its SoCal location with nods to surrounding attractions. One of these is the lobby’s focal point artwork by renowned California art studio Nikolas Weinstein Studios that presents individual glass pieces that appear to be blowing in a Southern California breeze. A large round art piece, reminiscent of old-school View-Master slides, offers a look at the area’s entertainment and sports offerings. Other interesting pieces are a giant Light Bright display near the elevator and an installation by a local artist featuring three life-size Stormtroopers.

“The Radisson Blu brand seeks out locations in gateway cities—hubs for travelers from all walks of life—and Anaheim embodies that perfectly,” says Steve Lindburg, general manager of Radisson Blu Anaheim. “From its exceptional design to world-class culinary offerings, Radisson Blu Anaheim combines a signature European aesthetic with the local flavor of its surrounding community, creating a singular sense of place that leads to powerful guest experiences and memories.”

The hotel features three restaurants and two bars. Blu SkyBar’s 12th-floor rooftop setting, Spanish-inspired menu, and craft cocktail bar (including local craft beers and wines from across California) make it the perfect spot to enjoy Southern California’s beautiful weather year-round.

FireLake Grillhouse & Cocktail Bar (opening in March 2021) will feature a menu centered around live-fire cooking and locally-sourced produce to highlight Southern California ingredients. FireLake will also include nearly 50 outdoor seats near the Oasis pool deck for safe, socially-distanced dining. Guests can also pop into Blu Marketplace, a grab-and-go spot for snacks, artisan coffee from Lavazza, and cold drinks.

The hotel’s two outdoor heated pools are the Oasis ground-level pool that features a whirlpool, splash pad, and cabanas for family fun and the rooftop pool that provides views of the surrounding area (including Disneyland’s fireworks when they resume). Other guest amenities include a fitness center, laundry service, electric car charging stations, and complimentary Wi-Fi to complete the “home away from home” experience.

This special package includes complimentary parking for one car per night, one $25 Disney Visa gift card per night, and one $25 hospitality credit per night to use at any dining location on the property. Plus, Disneyland Annual Passholders will receive an additional 20% discount for on-property food purchases.
