Anaheim, CA (May 26, 2021) – Hotel Lulu, a quintessential California hotel nestled in the heart of Anaheim, opens its doors on May 14, 2021. Ideally located just steps from Disneyland® and minutes from Anaheim Convention Center, this welcoming and playful property boasts laidback California design details with a modern twist. Outfitted with 310 guestrooms, Hotel Lulu features signature restaurant Lulu’s Kitchen; the new Lulu’s Coffee, serving Intelligentsia Coffee; a beautiful outdoor pool; 24/7 fitness center; 5,400 square feet of meeting and event space; and an onsite Disneyland® Insiders team. The hotel is managed by Azul Hospitality Group, a San Diego-based hospitality management company focused primarily on upscale hotels and resorts and is owned by J Street Hospitality, also based in San Diego.
The name Hotel Lulu took inspiration from the definition of “lulu” – something that is remarkable, wonderful or special – like a visit to sunny Southern California and Disneyland®. This name was then brought to life when the hotel created an illustrated character named “Lulu” who appears throughout the property, enjoying a carefree, fun-loving attitude as she enjoys the height of California living. The sentiment is also echoed through the hotel’s design, with the intention to evoke the same special feeling from guests.
“We are excited to announce the opening of Hotel Lulu and look forward to welcoming travelers, ensuring our guests have a carefree California experience,” said John Chan, Hotel Manager of Hotel Lulu. “This new hotel exudes the fun-loving energy of Anaheim; with everything travelers may need to kick back and relax after a day of adventures. From pool deck wine receptions for adults to fireside bedtime stories for kids, we have something for everyone, and our goal is to make every guest’s desires our top priority.”
