The Hotel Carlsbad Plaza is very proud of being a member of The Leading Hotels of the World – the most prestigious and luxurious hotel organization.
To date LHW has nearly 450 members comprising only the best hotels and resorts worldwide. The company was established already in 1928 by a group of influential and progressive European hoteliers.
The organization never addresses new members, but the hotel itself must ask for the admission at LHW, and the first condition is that every applicant must be recognized officially as a 5* hotel. According to requirements for applicants, every applying hotel must fulfil more than 1,500 criterias at all levels affecting the comfort, convenience and rest of a guest.
Only very few hotels selected amongst hundreds of applications (for example only 52 hotels of over 1,500 applications last year) must undergo a tough admission process, including a comprehensive anonymous inspection. After successful fulfilment of all thorough inspections and control processes, only the best hotels may be incorporated.
LHW member hotels are regularly examined anonymously by LHW inspectors so that the strict compliance of excellent quality and all determined standards can be ensured.
The Leading Hotels of the World organization publishes once a year a list of all members, which our guests will find in their rooms.
