Discover charming Whittier and SoCal theme parks

Named in honor of abolitionist poet John Greenleaf Whittier, the city of Whittier offers small-town charm close to the attractions of the greater Los Angeles area. The Radisson is located in the city’s historic uptown district that features walkable, tree-lined streets with shops, restaurants and parks. Be sure to experience the fun of community events including a farmers’ market and the Thursday Family Street Festival.

For your convenience, the Radisson offers complimentary shuttle service to destinations within a seven-mile radius, so you can enjoy exploring without the hassle of finding parking. We’re also close to I-5, I-605 and Highway 60 if you’d like to explore the area on your own. 

Looking for a day of adventure at California’s most famous theme parks? The Radisson is about a 30-minute drive from both Knott’s Berry Farm and the Disneyland® Resort.
