HACIENDA HEIGHTS, Calif., July 2, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The comfortably appointed Courtyard Los Angeles Hacienda Heights/Orange County offers guests a hotel equipped with luxurious rooms and only 25 minutes from this year's host of the Breeders' Cup World Championships, Santa Anita Park.
Guests flying in to the championships and staying at the centrally located Courtyard will have their choice between LA/Ontario (ONT) and Los Angeles (LAX) international airports, as well as easy hotel access to the 60, 57, I-10 and I-605 Freeways.
The 31st annual Breeders' Cup will take place Friday and Saturday, Oct. 31-Nov. 1. Santa Anita Park has been an extremely popular venue for the event and has hosted the Breeders' Cup six times in the past, most recently in 2013. Every event has set records as far as attendance and wagering, but 2013 especially had the crowd on its toes with Wise Dan's epic underdog finish. This year's Breeders' Cup promises to be another thrilling event, as 14 races with purses have been scheduled, totaling more than $27 million in prizes.
The Courtyard Los Angeles Hacienda Heights is near Mt. San Antonio College and the local city of Industry, which is an ideal location for those staying in the area overnight prior to attending the renowned thoroughbred racing event. When the races are over, guests will discover that they are conveniently close to a host of various local attractions including Disneyland, Knott's Berry Farm, Dodger Stadium, Angel Stadium of Anaheim and shopping at Puente Hills and Brea malls. Those who enjoy the great outdoors will appreciate nearby Santa Monica State Beach Park as well as Schabarum Regional Park, which offers biking and casual horseback riding.
"We are extremely proud to have served as a favorite lodging place for so many Breeder's Cup attendees for the past several years," said general manager Maritza Mejia. "Our hotel location in Hacienda Heights has proven to be the perfect complement to both Santa Anita Park and numerous other area attractions, and we are pleased with our stellar reputation for serving guests in town for the race."
After enjoying the horse racing, guests can return to Hacienda Heights' No. 1 ranked hotel on TripAdvisor and relax in a haven of comfort. The hotel near Pomona Fairplex and Cal Poly Pomona has also been recognized by TripAdvisor as a GreenPartner in its GreenLeaders Program based on environmentally friendly practices.
