The 209-suite hotel is the first onsite at Destiny USA and features an onsite restaurant, a pool and is the go-to property for guests traveling to visit the international shopping destination.  

“If you’re a North Dakotan who is just as excited about our one-year anniversary date as we are—whether it’s a birthday, anniversary or meaningful date for any reason—we want you to represent our 50th state,” said Destiny USA Embassy Suites General Manager Josh Morey. “Come celebrate with us and experience one of New York State’s most fun-filled destinations - from our Embassy Suites hotel to Destiny USA to downtown Syracuse and more.”

In fact, this indoor amusement park has become an international draw for the region.

“It’s been fun working with both tourism bureaus (Syracuse and Fargo Moorhead) and learning more about North Dakota and their lingo - you betcha,” said Morey. “We’re looking forward to welcoming North Dakotans and celebrating our anniversary.
