The Destination Difference
The Destination Hotels & Resorts Philosophy sets it apart from other traditional hotel owners, operators, and developers by focusing on distinctive and high quality properties that are unique and superior in their marketplace. In managing, developing and redeveloping hospitality assets, Destination recognizes that each property occupies a specific niche within its market. Consequently, Destination does not operate by a set of standardized procedures, but rather builds and manages in the most appropriate manner for each location and its range of customers.
Destination has a strategically aligned and long-term view regarding a property’s profitability, physical condition and reputation. This clear, strategic focus on value is the cornerstone of Destination’s impressive track record of success in an industry plagued by inconsistent results.
In April of 2012, Destination was ranked as the #4 management company in the United States by Hotel Business magazine.
Today, through the efforts of more than 9,300 employees, Destination manages 42 distinctive hotels and luxury resorts on behalf of several major owners, including LaSalle Hotel Properties, Oaktree Capital Management and Pebblebrook Hotel Trust. This unique 42 property portfolio includes seven IACC certified conference centers, with more than 1,000,000 square feet of meeting space, 16 golf courses and 17 spas located throughout the U.S. Properties under management total over 10,700 hotel rooms and condominium units with aggregate annual revenues in excess of $800 million. Luxurious accommodations accented by world-class settings and high quality amenities are the hallmark of Destination's portfolio. As a management company operating in various market segments in dozens of markets, Destination has extensive experience not only with independent assets but also branded hotels and resorts.
Destination has managed in every major region in the U.S. and in numerous urban and resort markets.
