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.

Who We Are

Destination Hotels is a hospitality management company that 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 our impressive track record of success in an industry plagued by inconsistent results.

What We Do

Today, through the efforts of more than 9,300 employees, we manage nearly 50 distinctive hotels and luxury resorts on behalf of several major owners, including LaSalle Hotel Properties, Oaktree Capital Management and Pebblebrook Hotel Trust. This unique 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 hallmarks of our portfolio. As a management company operating in various market segments in dozens of markets, we have extensive experience not only with independent assets but also branded hotels and resorts.

Our Philosophy

Our management philosophy in working with unique, independent hotels and resorts is that each property must have its own positioning strategy, which is custom designed to fit that property's product and market. This strategy creates a distinctive market position and guest experience aided by our expansive sales, operating and technology platforms.

Our ability to deliver a guest experience that exceeds expectations, provide superior management services, yield above-market returns on investment to owners, and foster workplace environments that attract and retain high-caliber talent all rely heavily on these guiding principles.

  • Act with the highest ethical standards
  • Achieve optimum investment performance
  • Focus on continuous improvement of quality assets and services
  • Empower a diverse group of talented and prepared people
  • Nurture positive relationships with investors, customers and team members
  • Consistently work to balance lives

This philosophy sets us 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. We don’t operate by a set of standardized procedures, but rather build and manage in the most appropriate manner for each location and its range of customers.
