Destination Hotels became part of the Hyatt Hotels Corporation in 2018. Each of the brand's 30 desert resorts, oceanfront villas, boutique hotels and ski lodges evokes the geography of a particular region of the U.S. through decor: The Scottsdale Resort at McCormick Ranch offers an elegant atmosphere inspired by Arizona's historic haciendas, while the Quirk Hotel provides cozy accommodations in the heart of Richmond, Virginia. Regardless of location, Destination properties emphasize relaxation and recreation (often in the form of spas and golf courses), and every property contains conference facilities. Plus, members of the brand's World of Hyatt loyalty program receive extra perks like free Wi-Fi access and exclusive member rates. The following Destination Hotels hold spots on our Best Hotels in the USA ranking.

    Flanking the northwest edge of the Arizona State University campus, Tempe Mission Palms allows guests easy access to the area's museums, parks and shopping centers. Guests love the resort's convenient location, but they also recommend taking advantage of the hotel's facilities. The rooftop swimming pool is a popular spot to kick back and soak up some rays; you'll also find a tennis court and a basketball hoop up there, just in case you grow restless. And though Tempe's numerous eateries can be found nearby, visitors recommend breakfast or lunch at the Mission Grille Restaurant, which serves up Southwestern cuisine. When bedtime rolls around, you'll find rooms here to be spacious and stylish. However, some recent guests note that the hotel's location near the airport means that overhead noise is common. Try booking a room on a middle floor for a more peaceful slumber.

    Tucked into a quiet neighborhood in Scottsdale, The Scottsdale Resort at McCormick Ranch earns high praise for providing a relaxing respite to weary guests. Visitors appreciate the on-site facilities such as the pool, spa and adjacent golf course for their ability to induce maximum relaxation. There are also three on-site restaurants and a fitness center for those wanting to work up a sweat while on vacation. And though you're able to easily plug-in from tthe real world from your room, amenities such as LCD TVs, marble baths and pillow-top mattresses will entice you to completely disconnect. Guests describe accommodations here as comfortable, though some note that the decor feels a little dated. Regardless, many report the service to be exceptional.
