Contracting firm R.D. Olson Construction has kicked off the remodel of the Sheraton Park Hotel at the Anaheim Resort in Anaheim, Calif. The renovation will include a full modernization of the guestrooms as well as improvements to the common areas. The hotel was originally constructed in the 1970s, so the remodel will modernize the property and bring it up to current brand standards following its recent acquisition by Taconic Capital Advisors. The project is slated for completion in Q2 2022.
The 270,000-square-foot renovation project will update the hotel’s 498 guestrooms and add two additional rooms, for a total of 500 rooms. The room types available to guests will comprise 10 suites, 99 king rooms and 391 double queen rooms. The lobby, restaurant, meeting rooms, ballroom, lobby bar, fitness room, Sheraton Club Lounge and other common areas will also get updates, as will some limited exterior areas.
“R.D. Olson Construction has strategically planned a phased remodel to ensure that the project has minimal impact to guests, staff and visitors to the Sheraton at the Park Anaheim,” said Bill Wilhelm, president of R.D. Olson Construction. “We have extensive experience conducting renovations while hotels remain fully operational and look forward to partnering with Taconic Capital to complete this revitalization project while guests continue to enjoy all that the hotel has to offer.”
The hotel is within walking distance to Disneyland Resort.
In addition to Taconic Capital, R.D. Olson Construction is partnering with architecture firm Melzer Deckert Ruder Architects and construction manager Cumming on the project.
Other recent hotel renovation projects from R.D. Olson Construction in California include an 10,000-square-foot lobby remodel at the Westin Downtown Long Beach; the renovation of the Kimpton Hotel Wilshire, a 41,900-square-foot boutique hotel in Los Angeles; and the full modernization of the Howard Johnson Anaheim Hotel and Water Playground in Disneyland’s Resort District.
