Destiny USA continues to invest significant resources in both the domestic and international tourism markets to create awareness and drive visitation—and it continues to pay off in record numbers this year. With the addition of an on-site hotel, Embassy Suites by Hilton at Destiny USA, Destiny USA has transformed itself into a true international travel destination resulting in increased tourist traffic and longer stays in the Central New York region.
Entering the last quarter of 2018, Destiny USA’s motor coach business is up nearly 10% over last year, which was also a record-breaking year (up 45% over the prior year). The incentives offered for passengers, drivers, and escorts, along with the private Motor Coach lounge continue to receive rave reviews from tour operators.
To date this year, Destiny USA has welcomed visitors from all 50 states and 24 counties from all over the globe (Asia, Africa, Europe, and Australia, as well as North and South America). Ideally located in the center of the state with its own exit off interstate I-81, Destiny USA functions conveniently as both a stopover and destination for travelers.
Since opening its doors on September 7, 2017, Embassy Suites by Hilton at Destiny USA has registered overnight guests from all 50 states, plus 12 countries and two territories, and recently became the official hotel for Syracuse Athletics. Its exclusive Stay & Save discounts and Destiny USA’s Shop & Drop delivery service to the hotel set it apart from its competition.
I Love New York chose Destiny USA for its Central New York Welcome Center, which features interactive educational displays, including virtual reality tours, plus locally made products and gifts. It is distinguished as being the only one of the state’s welcome centers located inside of a shopping, dining and entertainment destination.
