Englewood, Colo. – August 1, 2014 – Destination Hotels & Resorts announces the addition of the Scottsdale Resort and Conference Center to its growing portfolio. Ideally situated between the pristine Sonoran Desert and the burgeoning shopping, restaurant, gallery, and club scene of Scottsdale, AZ, the resort will undergo a series of renovations beginning in 2015, featuring a revitalized, intimate hospitality experience designed to attract both leisure and business travelers as well as a rebranding to support the new positioning and renovations of the resort.
“We are thrilled to expand our distinctive collection further in the Phoenix market,” said Jamie Sabatier, president and chief operating officer of Destination Hotels & Resorts. “Drawing upon our successful management platform and industry-leading expertise in repositioning resorts and conference centers, we look forward to reinvigorating the Scottsdale Resort to attract and engage new customers for years to come.”
Scottsdale Resort features 326 guest rooms, casitas and suites each with the elegant décor and residential ambiance of private haciendas. With more than 50,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor meeting space, the resort features 50 meeting rooms accommodating groups of 10 to 1,000. The phased renovations in 2015 will be dedicated to re-concepting the social spaces in the resort including the development of a lobby bar and restaurant, reviving the resort’s existing restaurant outlet and refreshing the resort’s pools and amenities. Guests of the resort will continue to enjoy guaranteed tee times at McCormick Ranch Golf Club's two adjacent championship golf courses, the Palm and Pine Courses.
The Scottsdale Resort and Conference Center marks the third property operated by Destination Hotels & Resorts in the Phoenix market, joining Royal Palms Resort and Spa and Tempe Mission Palms.
