La Costa Resort and Spa

What's the fun of being good at tennis if there's no one to watch you ace that serve? La Costa Resort and Spa in San Diego feels the same way, so they've set up seating around all 17 of their courts. The central hard court features stadium seating and seven of the courts are lit for night-time play.

Conrad Hotel

Sure, playing tennis is fun, but the real plus of an outdoor match is the tan you'll sport afterwards. The best spot to add some spin to your serve while adding some color to your complexion is the rooftop tennis courts at the Conrad Hotel in downtown Miami. The 17th floor courts are close to the sun, and better yet, close to the pool for an after-match dip.

Maui Coast Hotel

For those of you less concerned about a tan (or for those who got too much sun at the Conrad Hotel courts), a nighttime game can be tons of fun. The two hard-surface courts at Maui Coast Hotel stay open until 9:30 p.m. and are well-lit for players craving an after-dark match.

Millenium UN Plaza

Tennis courts in New York City are hard to come by and indoor courts are even rarer — in fact, the Millennium UN Plaza has the only indoor court in Manhattan! An added bonus? The subway station to get to Arthur Ashe Stadium (if you're heading to the U.S. Open) is less than a 10 minute walk from the hotel.

Zoetry Agua at Punta Cana

The court at the Zoetry Agua in the Dominican Republic isn't in pristine condition but the secluded location can't be beat — the hotel is an hour from the airport and feels a million miles from Punta Cana's mega-resorts.
