Garden Grove’s Redevelopment Agency has invested millions of dollars in numerous hotels and restaurants along the Harbor Corridor. In 2011, visitor spending in Orange County totaled $7.75 billion. Over 16.3 million visitors came to the Anaheim/Garden Grove resort area in 2011, accounting for a large portion of this spending. With over 2,800 rooms, the “International West” has become a large part of the Disneyland Resort District and Anaheim Convention Center. Garden Grove resort hotels cater to families and business travelers alike, with the Resort Services Team helping to ensure a safe and enjoyable stay.
