Anaheim Updates & Expands Convention Campus




In California, the Anaheim/Orange County Visitor & Convention Bureau, the City of Anaheim and the Anaheim Convention Center, alongside the three local-area hotels that form the Anaheim Convention Campus (Hilton Anaheim, Anaheim Marriott and Sheraton Park Hotel) have launched an extensive expansion and renovation plan to improve the campus' meeting space and visitor accommodations and amenities. The project began earlier in the year and was spearheaded by the Anaheim Convention Center announcement to expand its current facilities with an additional 200,000 square feet of flexible space to be used for exhibits, meetings and events.

Earlier this year, all four venues outlined a list of improvements that would boost Anaheim's profile for meetings and conventions. The overall renovation and expansion funds committed exceed $240 million and will cover a range of improvements like new meeting space, room upgrades and food and beverage additions. Details on the improvement include:

Anaheim Convention Center

  • An additional 200,000 square feet of flexible space for exhibits, meetings and events
  • A new 2.4 megawatt rooftop solar array, the largest of any municipally-owned convention center in the country, providing renewable power for meetings and conventions
  • Recently completed Grand Plaza that connects campus hotels with the Anaheim Convention Center in an exclusive group setting

Hilton Anaheim

  • Corridor renovations including Axminster carpet, wall vinyl, enhanced lighting and Southern California themed artwork
  • High energy lounge with communal seating and upgraded technology
  • Addition of private chef's kitchen
  • Expanded Starbucks

Anaheim Marriott

  • Refresh of all guest rooms and corridors, including new carpet and furniture
  • Reinvented lobby and outdoor spaces 
  • Brand new nFuse Bar, Restaurant and Social Lounge

Sheraton Park Hotel

  • Upgraded gigabit speed technology throughout with increased Internet speed in function space and guest rooms
  • Newly redesigned guest rooms and public areas
  • New function space renovation includes new carpet, wall coverings and energy-efficient LED lighting throughout
  • New restaurant concept

Good to know: The Hilton and Marriott are a total of 120 steps from the convention center, while the Sheraton is a total of 430 steps.
