The Leading Hotels of the World

The Leading Hotels of the World, Ltd. is a collection of authentic and uncommon luxury hotels. Comprised of more than 400 hotels in over 80 countries, our hotels embody the very essence of their destinations. The company was established in 1928 by a group of influential and forward-thinking European hoteliers. In 2018, Leading Hotels celebrated 90 years of remarkably uncommon travel experiences continuously delivered to curious travelers by a group of passionate hoteliers representing more than 400 hotels in over 80 countries. Since then, the company has carefully selected unique hotels, resorts, chalets, villas and safaris, from the snow-capped Alpine peaks in Europe to the African veldt. All for the sake of sharing these unique places with adventure lovers from all over the world. 

The LHW collection spans the world, offering many destinations and rewarding perks through its Leaders Club tiered loyalty program.
