For the first time in almost decades, Disneyland Resort will introduce a new addition to its hotel lineup―a Four Diamond hotel. The new property, which is scheduled to open in 2021, “will transform the west end of the Downtown Disney District and anchor a new gateway to the Disneyland Resort,” says Erin Glover, Editorial Content Director for the Disneyland Resort.

The new Four Diamond hotel will feature approximately 700 rooms with a “sophisticated design” and will add “extensive landscaping and water elements,” creating a resort oasis. Disneyland states that the new property will also feature an upper-level dining location and lounge that will give guests a view of Disneyland park’s fireworks display. Additionally, the hotel’s lower level will include shops and restaurants “opening onto an expansive landscaped plaza.” According to Disneyland’s announcement, the Four Diamond hotel will connect all other existing on-site hotels through gardens and landscaped walkways, completely transforming the west side of the property. Moreover, the Four Diamond hotel will consist of a dedicated platform for the Disneyland monorail inside the hotel, providing guests with direct transportation into Disneyland park.

Disneyland expects to begin construction on the new hotel in the summer of 2018.

Press Release
We have some exciting news to share with you today about continuing expansion and growth of the Disneyland Resort. For the first time in almost two decades, we will open a new Four Diamond hotel! Set to open in 2021, this hotel will transform the west end of the Downtown Disney District and anchor a new gateway to the Disneyland Resort.

The stunning 700-room hotel will feature a sophisticated design and be a game-changer for Anaheim, creating a dynamic dining, entertainment and hotel experience for resort visitors and local residents. Extensive landscaping and water elements will create a resort oasis, showcasing nature on every level of the hotel. The hotel’s location embraces the iconic Disneyland Monorail with a dedicated platform inside the hotel for direct transport into Disneyland park.

Guest rooms, public spaces and gardens will provide views of the Downtown Disney District. In addition, an upper-level restaurant and lounge will give guests a view of the popular Disneyland park fireworks.

The ground level of the hotel will include shops and restaurants opening onto an expansive landscaped plaza complete with playful water features, creating a gathering place for guests and visitors. The new hotel also connects all four Hotels of the Disneyland Resort through lush gardens and beautifully landscaped walkways, transforming the gateway on the west side and creating a welcoming entry for our Disneyland Resort guests.

And that’s not all. This new hotel creates great benefits for the community, generating approximately $25 million in new taxes in its first five years of operation that go directly to Anaheim’s general fund. It also will create thousands of additional construction and permanent jobs and attract new hotel guests to the resort area.

Construction is scheduled to start in summer 2018, with a grand opening slated for 2021. Check back here for updates!
