The Leading Hotels of the World Commitment to Quality Awards are one of the most prestigious international awards given to a leading hotel and a leading small hotel with the highest scores for their individual regions. The 395 member hotels of the organization represent the finest and most varied group in the world in terms of a broad spectrum of style and size.
Stringent and comprehensive benchmarks are used in selecting the winners. Member hotels are inspected more than once. In addition, the jury visits hundreds of other hotels that aspire for membership to The Leading Hotels of the World. The exercise results in the compilation of an extensive database upon which the organization`s standards are based.
The winners of Commitment to Quality awards are selected primarily upon the scores they receive. Additional factors considered are comments and feedback from guests and their status and uniqueness in their respective markets. The awards include a certificate, a custom-designed commemorative bronze plaque and exclusively designed lapel pins to be worn by hotel staff to commemorate the honor.
