    Planning for hotels and resorts

    I was wondering if anyone could tell me the names of some of the leading architectural firms that do planning for hotels and resorts.

    A related question - do any masters degrees programs in planning cover planning specifically for hotels and resorts? I am a prospective student- I've looked at a number of programs but I don't find any faculty who have an interest in this area.

    Thanks for any input.

    Google EDAW, SWA Group, Design Workshop, EDSA, Sasaki Associates...those are names that quickly come to mind.

    How about a little local flavor, Allen + Phillip in Scottsdale?

    Today, it is credited for many notable projects throughout the Southwest including The Boulders Resort, Fairmont Scottsdale Princess, Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain, the Spa at Camelback Inn and Arizona Biltmore Spa, although its reach is international with projects in Spain, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Canada, Bermuda and the Bahamas. Allen + Philp has attained recognition for its expertise with over 35 design awards.
    Their most recent project I know of is the current remodel/expansion of the the Hotel Valley Ho.

    Those firms that Boilerplater mentioned are all landscape architectural firms. As far as I'm concerned, to plan reort or hotel is one of landscape archtects job. if you are interested in this field, you better study in Master of landscape architecture.
    Universe is not wide enough to be planned.

    Have you checked out the APA Resort and Tourism Division's website:

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)
