Disneyland Demand + Smart Travel: Six freeway exits are all that will separate you and your recharged guests from another day of Disney magic. This May 2019’s long awaited opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge “Land”, is anticipated to drive annual Disney park attendance higher than the 29M annual guests (79,000 daily) to Disneyland and Disney’s California Adventure over the past few years.

Less than 5 miles from John Wayne Airport (SNA), Orange County – Santa Ana: Once wheels down at John Wayne, Orange County guests of the Holiday Inn Express and Suites Santa Ana begin to plug-in, unwind or recharge within minutes.

With service from most commercial airlines (Alaska, American, Delta, Frontier, JetSuiteX, Southwest, and WestJet), the airport supports over 10M passengers each year across the United States, Canada and Mexico.

Diverse Orange County Demand: The Holiday Inn Express and Suites Santa Ana -Orange County’s regional location is positioned to capture concentric circles of diversified demand. As the center of Orange County, Santa Ana is also the county seat, and the County is the city’s largest employer (18,000). Another local notable is Behr Paint Company whose 230,000 square foot corporate headquarters is also located in Santa Ana. Within 10 miles of the lobby is the Irvine Business Complex -home to 47 Fortune 500 Companies, the University of Irvine (+23.6k Jobs & 36k Students 18% International) and South Coast Plaza Mall’s over 2.8M SF of entertainment and high-end retail including Nordstrom, Bloomingdale's, and Louis Vuitton.

Freeway Visibility and Access: The 10-story hotel’s modern monolithic appearance and familiar green HIXS rooftop signage are a welcoming beacon to first-time guests arriving via California Interstate 5.
