The Westin Anaheim Resort will offer more than 600 rooms situated within a 630,000 square-foot environment, with landscaping and social gathering spaces. It will also include a rooftop deck where guests can view the nearby Disneyland and California Adventure theme parks.
“Urban rooftop decks have emerged as one of the hottest design trends of this decade, and our expertise in creating entertainment-driven, immersive rooftop environments is unmatched,” Amador noted in the press release.
The new deck will feature banquette seating nestled around modern fire pits, with portable shade structures and furniture that can accommodate public gatherings as well as private parties, weddings, or corporate events.
“On the roof, we plan to integrate a long, linear raised water feature with floating planters, bringing a visual texture to the deck’s comfortable elegance,” Amador added.
