PARSIPPANY, NJ--(Marketwired - June 16, 2014) - Wyndham Hotel Group, the world's largest hotel company with approximately 7,500 hotels and part of Wyndham Worldwide Corporation (NYSE: WYN), today added to the footprint of its namesake Wyndham Hotels and Resorts® brand with the 376-room Wyndham Anaheim Garden Grove in Garden Grove, Calif.
The recently renovated property, a Disneyland® Good Neighbor Hotel, offers family-friendly guest rooms with bunk beds for kids, high-speed wireless internet access, three on-site restaurants and bars, shuttle service to area attractions and businesses and approximately 36,000 square feet of function space that can accommodate up to 1,800 attendees.
Owned by OHI Resort Hotels, LLC, and managed by Pacific Hospitality Group, Wyndham Anaheim Garden Grove is situated at the center of the Anaheim area's popular leisure and business destinations, located within two miles of attractions like Disneyland® Resort and the Anaheim Convention Center, the largest convention center on the west coast.
The addition represents a significant step for the Wyndham® brand in catering to group and leisure travel business while furthering Wyndham Hotel Group's strategic efforts to bring the upscale brand to key urban and resort markets in the United States. Since 2013, two additional Southern California hotels, Wyndham San Diego Bayside and Wyndham Santa Monica at the Pier, have joined the portfolio, along with city-center properties in New York City, Boston, Philadelphia and Dallas, among others.
"In addition to being located near key cities like Los Angeles and San Diego, Anaheim itself is a major tourism destination that draws millions of visitors each year," said Keith Pierce, executive vice president of brand operations for Wyndham Hotel Group. "Having a centrally located property in this important market -- a market that is established and difficult to penetrate -- is an exciting milestone for the Wyndham brand's growth. With its extensive meeting space, family-focused offerings and service-oriented staff, we know Wyndham Anaheim Garden Grove will be a wonderful addition and will go above and beyond to meet guests' needs."
The hotel's nearly 36,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor event facilities include two spacious ballrooms, 10 flexible meeting rooms and more than 6,300 square feet of pre-function space. On-site event services and amenities include state-of-the-art audio visual and presentation equipment, dedicated event staff, full-service catering and hospitality suites.
"We are extremely pleased to be partnering with the Wyndham brand and providing a beautifully renovated hotel in the Anaheim area to Wyndham's Southern California collection," said Steve Arnold, president and chief operating officer for Pacific Hospitality Group. "We are also delighted with our new upper-upscale designation provided by J.D. Power and Associates and we have enhanced our operations to match this distinction. With 376 guest rooms and suites, 36,000 square feet of flexible meeting space and the newly constructed California Grill Restaurant, Blend Coffee Bar and Trinitas Cellars Wine Bar, the resort is well-positioned to continue to serve the discerning leisure and business traveler."
Other hotel offerings include a 1,500-square-foot fitness center, a business center, a pool and hot tub with private cabanas and a library. Guests also have access to room service, a gift shop and an on-site Disney Desk where they can purchase tickets and obtain information about nearby Disney® parks.
Located on Harbor Boulevard, Wyndham Anaheim Garden Grove gives guests immediate access to popular destinations like Disneyland® Resort, Downtown Disney®, Disney's California Adventure® Park and Knott's Berry Farm. Shopping and dining are located nearby at The Shops at GardenWalk and The Outlets at Orange, while popular Southern California beaches are less than 20 miles away.
Meeting planners can earn Wyndham Event Rewards® points when they book and hold events at Wyndham Anaheim Garden Grove. Points can be redeemed for rewards including airline tickets, free night stays, gift cards and more. More information is available at www.wyndhameventrewards.com.

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
