Leading Hotels Of The World has almost 400 luxury hotels in 75 countries. There is very strict criteria that a property must meet to be considered for inclusion in the Leading Hotels. A hotel is evaluated based on accommodations, service, cuisine, employee behavior and facilities. You can access a list of all of their fine resorts here.
Leaders Club is not a hotel rewards club but rather a recognition program. That is, as a member of the club, you will get certain benefits and privileges that provide convenience when you stay at a Leading Hotel Of The World. There is a fee for membership.
There are 2 membership levels. Leaders Club which is $150 per year and Unlimited, which is a hefty $1,200 per year. Here are some of the benefits and perks of membership…
With both memberships, you earn one complimentary night at a Leading Hotel for every four (Unlimited) or five (Leaders Club) stays you complete. You receive complimentary continental breakfast for two each day. Also, when available, you can get one-category room upgrade and Unlimited members have priority status. You also have complimentary internet with both memberships and you get a gift at check-in.
To try to make that $1,200 worthwhile, with the Unlimited membership you also get free one-way airport transfers to currently thirty cities. You also are entitled to up to three complimentary Unlimited memberships for your family. You are enrolled in Priority Pass Select. You have guaranteed 4:00 PM late check-out and access to one-of-a-kind specially-created experiences. IMO, not sure if it is worth $1,200!
