on-line have a special value, as well as quality and luxury,” according to

Many on-line travel sites theoretically offer luxury travel, but will pair
some four and five star properties with three star properties, thus not
meeting the traveler`s expectations. is exclusively four-plus and five-star properties whose status
will be continually monitored by Leading Interactive Reservations, a joint
venture company of The Leading Hotels of the World.
