Sheraton Wild Horse Pass Resort & Spa in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area of Arizona joined the ranks of the Sheraton brand's premier tier of hotels across the globe. It is the first Sheraton Grand resort in North America. The distinction recognizes the hotel's enticing destinations, distinguished designs, and excellence in service and guest experiences. Located in Chandler, Sheraton Wild Horse Pass Resort & Spa accompanies 24 other Sheraton Grand properties worldwide.

The Sheraton Grand at Wild Horse Pass is recognized as a heritage resort, meaning it offers a true escape at a property deemed exemplary for its unique architecture, design, amenities and personalized service.

Sheraton Grand is one of the initiatives underway for Sheraton 2020, a comprehensive plan that aims to solidify Sheraton as a leading global hotel brand of choice worldwide.

"Sheraton Grand celebrates the brand’s best-in-class hotels, each hand-selected based on a specific list of criteria ranging from sophisticated design and sought-after destinations, to unrivaled standards of service and impressive hotel amenities," said Dave Marr, global brand leader for Sheraton Hotels & Resorts.

Located on pristine Sonoran desert land only minutes from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, Sheraton Grand at Wild Horse Pass is one of the premier resorts in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area. The property features unique, contemporary and culturally authentic artwork and details that reflect the traditions of the Pima and Maricopa People. The resort boasts 500 culturally themed rooms and the only AAA Five-Diamond/Forbes Five-Star dining experience in Arizona in their signature restaurant, Kai, which has made history by achieving that dual designation for nine consecutive years and placing themselves amongst the top 26 restaurants in the nation. The resort also offers 36 holes of Troon® golf, the Forbes Four-Star Aji Spa featuring indigenous Native treatments, 150,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor meeting space, the onsite 1,000-acre Koli Equestrian Center and River complete with water sport activities and boat rides to nearby attractions.
