February 27, 2014 // Franchising.com // ORANGE, Calif. and MCLEAN, Va. - Embassy Suites Hotels, the Hilton Worldwide brand of upscale all-suite hotels, opened Embassy Suites Anaheim-Orange today after a $12 million renovation including a complete makeover of suites, meeting space and indoor and outdoor pool facilities. The hotel, formerly a Hilton Suites, is managed by Crescent Hotels & Resorts, and it will serve as a hub for both business and leisure travelers due to its proximity to major airports, convention centers, stadiums and theme parks.
"We are excited to welcome this Anaheim hotel as we grow our portfolio in Southern California," said John Rogers, global head, Embassy Suites Hotels. "Along with the hotel team, we look forward to showcasing our new hotel and delivering superior guest service to our loyal guests as well as future guests traveling to the area."
Guests will be welcomed to a redesigned contemporary lobby featuring an atrium restaurant and bar, Cloud 9, that has been completely reimagined creating a gathering place for guests to enjoy daily, complimentary, cooked-to-order breakfast and a complimentary evening reception*. The hotel’s suites have been redesigned to feature luxurious bathrooms with a separate shower and tub as well as a separate living room with sofa bed, microwave, refrigerator, work desk and ergonomic chair. Eighteen of the 230 suites are two-bedroom family suites, offering the same updated amenities as standard one-bedroom suites but with a full size bed next to the den and 200 sq. ft. more space.
The hotel will accommodate an intimate meeting and event atmosphere for up to 100 people. Four thousand sq. ft. of meeting and banquet space is available including breakout rooms for up to 50 people and a boardroom with executive-style chairs for up to 10 people. The atrium provides reserved seating for a relaxing lunch venue as well as a 24-hour complimentary business center—all the amenities needed to help the smart business traveler get the job done comfortably while on the road. Guests can also enjoy the complimentary 24-hour fitness center, which features state-of-the-art Precor® fitness equipment such as treadmills, elliptical machines and free weights.
"This was a much-needed renovation to enhance our guest experience and showcase our unparalleled convenience and outstanding services," said Markus Kohn, general manager, Embassy Suites Anaheim-Orange. "Our hotel has always been home to frequent business travelers and vacationing families, but with new renovations to our suites, meeting spaces, lobby and restaurant, the hotel will be that much more of an attractive choice for our visitors."
Sports fans, families and other leisure travelers will enjoy the hotel’s proximity to various stadiums, theme parks and white sandy beaches. The hotel is within walking distance of the MLB’s Angel Stadium and only one mile from the Honda Center, a major concert venue and home of the NHL’s Anaheim Ducks.
