As the first phase of hotel rooms are completed and guests are starting to experience some of the new magic, we thought it was the perfect opportunity to share the details found in our newly reimagined guest rooms.
The headboards are made of quarter-sawn oak, a hallmark of Craftsman design, which frame a blossoming orange tree mural overhead—with mischievous Chip n’ Dale playing in the branches. When guests open the sleeper bed (available in select rooms), artwork of Bambi, along with other woodland creatures, bid them goodnight.
California-inspired artwork dot the room walls, including original designs of orange crate labels paying homage to Disney history. For example, Dominguez Grove Oranges is named for the family of Ron Dominguez, the owners of the property that Disneyland would be built on. Also, Silver Lake Brand Citrus is named for the Los Angeles neighborhood that was home to Walt Disney’s Hyperion Street Animation Studio.
Countertops of the room’s desk, dresser and coffee station incorporate pieces of green glass from wine bottles, creating a beautiful, unique surface. Above the coffee bar, textured copper detailing adds depth to the aesthetic of the room while enforcing the Craftsman story. Copper was one of the most common metals used during early Arts and Crafts designs, especially in Pasadena homes by Greene and Greene.
Lastly, all rooms are powered with the latest technological features and premium amenities, including 55-inch smart TVs, Keurig coffee makers and built-in USB chargers.
