The 2014 Edition of Select Hotels & Resorts – the proprietary luxury and ultra-luxury hotel offering from Travel Leaders Group - has been significantly expanded by 35 percent over last year’s inaugural book to now include 556 prestigious hotels and resorts globally, the group reports.
The publication is being sent to the luxury-oriented travel agencies that are pre-approved to participate in the program which Travel Leaders Group has called “An Inspiring Collection of the World’s Best Hotels.” Since the book went to print, another 60 select properties have accepted the invitation to join the program aimed at the sophisticated, high-end clientele of Travel Leaders Group’s eligible agencies and agents.
“To say that the 2014 Edition that showcases Travel Leaders Group’s Select Hotels & Resorts is bigger and better would be an understatement. This year’s edition is an absolutely gorgeous showcase for our exclusive collection of the world’s most desirable hotel properties,” said Barry Liben, Travel Leaders Group chief executive officer. “Our amenity-driven program is rich with all the attributes that our most discerning clientele expect and deserve, including special Select VIP amenities, complimentary breakfasts for two daily, early check-ins* and late check-outs*, and perhaps best of all, room upgrades.”
Liben indicated that among core qualifications for each participating hotel to be invited they must provide a guaranteed commission to the select number of Travel Leaders Group agents eligible to book into the program. They must also provide Select Special Amenities, which can range from food and beverage vouchers to spa credits. Only qualifying Travel Leaders Group agents are eligible to book Select Hotels & Resorts, which are available through the GDS using TZE in Worldspan, Sabre and Amadeus or TZEL in Apollo/Galileo.
