A West Coast Giant
Turn your next trip to the Los Angeles area from ordinary to extraordinary with hotels near Anaheim Convention Center. Built in 1967 to be the home of the Anaheim Amigos, a basketball team what would eventually go on to become the Utah Jazz, the center underwent a series of five major expansions between 1974 and 2000. Today, it boasts 815,000 square feet of exhibition space, 200,000 square feet of pre-function space, and 130,000 square feet of meeting and ballroom space. The sports arena, originally built for just basketball, now can hold up to over 9,000 attendees for various types of sports. Add all that up and the building is the largest exhibit facility on the West Coast. And that isn’t even the main reason it is a must-visit location in L.A.
An Eventful Adventure
With a guest room or suite in Anaheim, you will get access to some of the biggest, and most exciting, events in the country, perhaps even in the world. The Anaheim Convention Center has been home to the record breaking Winter NAMM Show, a music-equipment convention for trade professionals. The Anime Expo has called the center home multiple times between 1996 and 2006, and BlizzCon, the Blizzard Entertainment convention, has sold out tickets year after year. It has been the site of Olympic events, Los Angeles Clippers games, the VidCon conference, and the VEX Robotics World Championship. It has even been the site of its neighbor Disneyland’s D23 Expo since 2009. And those are only the big name, annual events. A whole calendar of local events, comedy shows, seminars, and tournaments are yours to enjoy when you stay at a hotel nearby.
One Stop on a Spectacular Tour
Even though the center has more to do, see, and experience than you could possible fit into a single trip, it is just one stop out of many that should garner your attention. When you stay at any of these establishments, be it the Desert Palms or the Hilton Anaheim, the Eden Roc, or the Anaheim Marriott, you will not only get a great room minutes from the center, you’ll has get access to everything else in the area. Get some shopping done at the Shops at Anaheim GardenWalk, catch a concert at the National Grove, watch a game at the Honda Center, or just take in the city of Anaheim in all its beauty. Of course, there’s also the small matter of the center being directly across the street from the world-famous, must-visit Disneyland Resort that alone could round out your itinerary, even if you are taking advantage of the extended-stay options at your hotel. And in case you aren’t a Disney fan but still want a themed attraction to visit, Adventure City is just down the road as well. All of the Anaheim area, as well as nearby Downtown L.A. and Hollywood, is yours to enjoy with a room at the hotels near the Anaheim Convention Center.
