The Westin Anaheim Resort, in the heart of California’s Anaheim Resort district, is a definition of modern design paying homage to Anaheim’s historic orange grove roots. Long Beach, California-based Michael Hong Architects served as the project’s design architect, while HED was the executive architect and Los Angeles-based Cobico, Inc oversaw its interior design. The lighting design was conceived by Costa Mesa award-winning firm, First Circle Design.
The Westin Anaheim Resort is home to 618 guestrooms and suites, including the 785-square-foot Park View suites and the 2,000-square-foot presidential suite. Included among the resort’s 47,000 square feet of flexible event and meeting space are 23 event rooms, 18 breakout rooms, and a ballroom that totals more than 16,000 square feet.
The project features a variety of Targetti and Duralamp interior and exterior products. Exterior facade features DURATAPE 120V and exterior coves with DURAFLEX ARCH Top Flex Exterior Landscape is illuminated with BULLETTO MINI, JUPITER, DURATAPE ES.

Luxe cabanas surround the outdoor swimming pool area and anchor the ground floor along with a 3,600-square-foot fitness center. The luxury guest area is accented with a variety of exterior lighting including DURAFLEX ARCH TOP FLEX and DURATAPE ES that are both used throughout the cabanas and pool area.
DURATAPE ES is an energy efficient high/mid/low output narrow spaced essential white LED flexible linear strip for continuous consistent color in linear applications. It is available in both indoor and outdoor options and an ideal and popular solution for cove, under-counter/cabinet, and lighting accent applications. The versatile linear strip light is ideal for under seating illumination due to its compact size and multiple mounting options.
RISE Rooftop Lounge offers informal dining and craft cocktails, as well as frames the views of Disneyland’s nightly fireworks display. BULLETTO MINI was surface mounted with the optional canopy mount accessory to provide the accent illumination on the rooftop bar. The small scale of the fixtures and high center beam candle power allows the high-performing BULLETTO series to light large applications. The 180 degree rotation of the projector allows the luminaire to be directed as needed to provide both pathway and ambient illumination.

JUPITER ingrade floodlights in 3000K were used throughout the landscape lighting design to deliver uplight along the garden area, pool and driveway paths. A combination of both Spot and Flood optics were utilized in the design.
Included among the resort’s 47,000 square feet of flexible event and meeting space are 23 event rooms, 18 breakout rooms, and a ballroom that totals more than 16,000 square feet. Over 5,000 linear feet of DURATAPE ES versatile strip light was used throughout the property in 3000K to beautifully illuminate the coves throughout each ballroom and hallway.
