Irvine, Calif. (March 18, 2019) – R.D. Olson Construction, an award-winning general contracting firm commemorating 40 years of building in California this year, announced the groundbreaking on a 223 room, dual-brand hotel in Anaheim. Comprised of a Hilton Garden Inn and Home2 Suites, the 220,000-square foot property is located just two blocks from Disneyland Resort and will feature a host of family friendly amenities.

The 100-room Home2 Suites will offer an extended stay experience featuring a full-sized sleeper sofa, workspace and in-suite kitchen complete with a refrigerator, cooktop, dishwasher, dishes and glassware. Additionally, it will include a dual laundry and fitness center as well as a 24-hour onsite marketplace. The 123-room Hilton Garden Inn will provide a full-service experience with a modern feel.

“We are honored to partner with Nara Investments to deliver a dynamic new hotel offering in the fast-growing Anaheim market,” said Bill Wilhelm, president of R.D. Olson Construction. “Located within walking distance to one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, the property will add much needed supply for Disneyland visitors and surrounding neighbors.”

Both hotels will have access to a restaurant, bar, pool, hot tub, kids splash pad and shared lobby. Each hotel will have its own breakfast area, and most rooms will include bathtubs to cater to its family demographic. Additionally, guests will have access to 1,000 square feet of meeting space, 1,500 square feet of retail space and two levels of underground valet parking.

“Dual branding has become a major trend in the hospitality industry, with guests benefiting from a wider variety of experiences and choices and owners benefiting from greater efficiencies,” added Wilhelm.

Located at 1441 South Manchester, the project is expected to be completed in Q4 2020. The ground-up construction will take place on the former site of a Quality Inn.  

In addition to Disneyland Resort, nearby attractions include the Downtown Disney District, House of Blues Anaheim, Great Wolf Lodge, Angel Stadium of Anaheim and Anaheim Packing District.

The dual-brand Anaheim adds to R.D. Olson Construction’s portfolio of dual-brand hospitality offerings, which include the H Hotel in Los Angeles and dual-brand Marriott Marina del Rey.
