Meetings Focus has announced that Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort & Spa at Gainey Ranch has won a Best of the West award for the ninth time in the program’s history.

Each year, Meetings Focus lets the users, made up of planners who hold events globally, determine the best hotels and resorts for meetings and events in North America.

The properties are judged on the quality of meeting space, guest rooms, services and amenities, food and beverage, tech and bandwidth support, recreational facilities/activities, helpfulness of staff, and overall value and experience. Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort & Spa at Gainey Ranch is one of the elite 64 who won the award this year as Best of the West, according to a press release.

Guests enjoy the many recreational amenities this desert oasis has to offer including the 2.5 acre water playground complete with 10 pools, a 30’, 3-story, high-speed waterslide and its signature sand beach. Additional amenities include 27 holes of championship golf, world-class tennis, miles of jogging and bicycle trails and the award winning Spa Avania, the first spa experience choreographed to the science of time, the release stated.

Other highlights feature the Native American Learning Center, Camp Hyatt for young resort guests, five distinctly different restaurants, three bars, Venetian gondola rides along the resort’s waterways and nightly entertainment in Center Stage Bar. In addition, this premier meeting venue offers 70,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor function space, providing both quality and flexibility of space, the release stated.
