Repeatable Wow Moments From My Marriott CRN Site Visit

ANAHEIM

It was a gorgeous two-hour Amtrak ride from San Diego to Anaheim, where I checked in to the 1,030-room Anaheim Marriott. After some R&R on the train, I reached Anaheim refreshed for a night out in a city with so much more to see than Disneyland.

Marriott CRN Marriott Convention & Resort Network Anaheim Marriott The Packing HouseOur first stop was Unsung Brewing Co.’s superhero-themed tasting room that opened this summer. Across the street is Anaheim Packing House. Built in 1919, it’s where local farmers used to unload trucks of oranges and wash and pack them before shipping them to the East Coast. Today, it’s an artisanal market filled with cafes and kiosks, perfect for a dine-around evening. Grab a hand-rolled crepe at Crepe Coop; taste fresh Indian cuisine at ADYA; or sip outlandish drinks by Mini Monster.

The next morning began with a catered breakfast in one of Anaheim Marriott’s meeting spaces, followed by a walking tour of the hotel. Anaheim Marriott has a storage room filled with creative food displays and decor event profs can play with, including Lego-themed boardroom items like a table made from Lego blocks and fidgety toys. Situated beside the 1.6 million-sq.-ft. Anaheim Convention Center, Anaheim Marriott has more than 100,000 square feet of meeting space and has hosted events for high-tech companies like Facebook, Google and the creators of Pokemon Go.
