Westin Anaheim Resort Breaks Ground

Back to All Media

We’ve been entrusted to create a unique, garden-inspired environment with a mix of resort-style, entertainment features at the $245 million development of the Westin Anaheim Resort, a four-diamond resort by local developer Wincome Group.

We knew that working with such a high caliber company as Lifescapes International would bring value to this project.  Their designs bring a sense of luxury and sophistication that is required for a 4-diamond hotel.

The Westin Anaheim Resort will offer more than 600 rooms situated within a 630,000 square-foot environment, rich with lavish landscaping and elegantly-designed, social gathering spaces.

Leveraging the resort’s close proximity to Disneyland and Disney’s California Adventure, we’re designing a luxurious rooftop deck where guests can enjoy park views and nightly fireworks shows. The new deck will feature ample banquette seating nestled around modern fire pits, with portable shade structures and furniture that can accommodate public gatherings as well as private parties, weddings, or corporate events.

We’ll also design the four-diamond resort’s new pool area, including two expansive pools and a luxurious spa surrounded by lush greenery and lounge furniture. The main pool will focus on luxury, complete with private cabanas, while the second pool is designed to be more family-oriented.

Since smooth, comfortable arrivals are essential to any first impression, we’re designing a unique motor court with specialty paving and an on-grade fountain with pop-up water feature that can be turned off to allow more parking when needed.

The Westin Anaheim Resort is located at 1030 W. Katella Avenue in Anaheim, California, just south of the Disneyland Resort and west of the Anaheim Convention Center.
