Spend a day at the outdoor pool or take advantage of the hotel babysitting service and indulge in some time alone at the adults-only indoor pool and hot tub. Stay fit with the latest equipment in the Hilton Anaheim Health Club where classes such as yoga or spinning are available, or let qualified personal trainers help with exercise. Pamper yourself with spa services from our Health Club.

Perk up with a cup of coffee from Starbuck’s® coffee shop or sip a cocktail at ultra-modern Mix Lounge. The Pool Bar and Grill offers a selection of delicious lunch options, right beside the outdoor pool.
