ANAHEIM - Developers have submitted plans for two hotels in the GardenWalk district – each one proposed to have more than 400 rooms.
Both hotels would be 12 stories high, with one at 300 Disney Way, and the other at 1775 South Clementine St.
The Disney Way hotel would house 400 rooms, all suites. The other, on Clementine, would have 466 rooms and 25,000 feet of meeting space.
The hotels would be near Disneyland and perhaps run by Disney.
"We are in discussions with the Walt Disney Co. to manage the hotels," said developer Ajesh Patel, president and CEO of Prospera Hotels.
Sherri Vander Dussen, the city of Anaheim's planning director, said the hotels' plans had to be passed around through city departments, with officials then drawing up conditions for approval.
Developers would then tweak their plans accordingly and bring them before the Planning Commission, then likely the City Council, for approval in the coming months.
Patel said Prospera is working together with developer O'Connell Hotels and Hospitality to build the two hotels, which, if approved, would be under construction simultaneously.
