Why The Leading Hotels Of The World?
LHW has been the leader in luxury hospitality since 1928, created for hoteliers by hoteliers. To this day, the company is still owned by 59 member hotels and empowers independent luxury hotels to stay independent so that this extraordinary segment can continue to thrive.
Curation is at the heart of the collection. To be considered for membership hotels must meet an exacting set of quality standards covering all phases of the guest experience and deliver uncommon experiences crafted by remarkable hoteliers. New additions are added seasonally, and existing members hotels are reassessed regularly.
Over 90% of the LHW collection is family-led. The community’s proud, independent hoteliers are visionaries within the travel industry and their own destinations. Many Leading hoteliers have been a part of their communities for generations, shaping the location, and offering unmatched access to their guests.
Leading Hotels’ complimentary loyalty program, Leaders Club, allows travellers to gain insider access and explore further at the collection’s 400+ worldwide properties. Travellers who join Leaders Club and book through LHW enjoy benefits before, during and after a stay.
LHW’s collection covers the globe and promises a broad range of destinations and uncommon experiences. From converted former palaces, and countryside retreats run by the same families for generations, to grand dames in dynamic urban centres, serene private island escapes, glamorous tented camps – for adventurous souls who seek the exceptional.
