A trusted mark of honor for half a century, WorldHotelsTM Collection was conceived by hoteliers dedicated to the art of hospitality. WorldHotels is a trusted partner, advisor and invaluable growth resource for a curated portfolio of some of the finest and most unique independent hotels and resorts around the world.
WorldHotels is devoted to Empowering True Independence. Our 250+ hand-selected, luxury, independent hotels and resorts are found in over 175 destinations around the world. The joy of being independent is that each WorldHotels member has its own identity, soul and each one tells its own story. They offer experiences that are handcrafted to provide an authentic and locally curated stay for the guest.

WorldHotels offers four collections for the discerning traveler and travel planner. To ensure that our impeccable standards are consistent across the world, each WorldHotels member must achieve and consistently meet the highest quality scores.
Our top two tier of luxury hotels and resorts, WorldHotelsTM Luxury and WorldHotelsTM Elite collection members are independently shopped by FORBES Travel Guide, the company that globally verifies luxury. Guest review and satisfaction scores, aggregated through Medallia, are determinant to assess WorldHotelsTM Distinctive and WorldHotelsTM Crafted hotels quality levels.
As today’s marketplace continues to evolve, our mission is to keep our exclusive hotel collection strong and at the forefront of these changes, as we continue to deliver higher ROI for our partners and owners.

Your membership in WorldHotels grants you access to these professionals, as well as a powerful and diverse set of marketing, distribution and support services designed with your specific needs in mind.

Hotel-Focused Business Model
WorldHotelsTM offers two business models: a traditional affiliation model and gross Room Revenue (G.R.R.) to accommodate various types of hotel ownership and management. WorldHotels provides unparalleled value relative to chain brands and traditional representation companies, and provides a strategic road map for success, ensuring that every hotel is in the position to maximize ROI.
Proprietary CRS Technology
WorldHotels owns its proven proprietary CRS technology, BWH CRS. With proprietary ownership, we get the distinct advantage to control software development, costs and customers service without having to rely on a third-party.
Power Through Partnerships
WorldHotels provides exclusive access in preferred partnerships that the individual hotel cannot gain access alone. These partnerships are delivered through joining one of the world’s leading hospitality networks. From preferred pricing with all major OTAs and FORBES, to Marketing opportunities with airlines, credit card and rental car companies; WorldHotels‘ network provides members increased exposure and business results.
WorldHotels properties maintain access to an incomparable sales and marketing network, which gives each member hotel the ability to compete in their local landscape and garner regional and international exposure to support their sales initiatives and individual brand.
As one of the first members of the WorldHotels collection, we look back on a long-standing cooperation, in which we have always felt well taken care of. By being an individual house with an historical background, we see the WorldHotels membership as the perfect global addition. The competence and commitment of the team, as well as the communications take place on the highest standards. Due to the high quality of the service and the opportunities offered to us by their international presence, we will continue to follow our common path with WorldHotels.
Michael Rupp | General Manager
Kastens Hotel Luisenhof
We have been a member of WorldHotels for over nine years now. There is nothing “cookie cutter” about the WorldHotels brand: they took the time to understand our needs as an independent hotel and offer us a personalized sales and marketing approach. This creates a luxury, independent brand, unique to the marketplace. Being now part of BWH Group offers another exclusive set of opportunities and that WorldHotels has taken the time to educate us on this new partnership and its many advantages (such as strong technology setup, new marketing tools and a strong sales engine behind the brand), to introduce us to key players in the industry and to make sure we were comfortable moving forward, truly exceeded my expectations.
Susan Keels | General Manager
Royal Park Hotel
WorldHotels has proven to be able to reach seasoned guests that book their stays based on experiences, building loyalty beyond brands.
The team fully understands our needs, along with the history of our hotel, and is always eager to assist with any questions or challenges. Their extensive resources and excellent support services have been critical in assisting us to increase our negotiated accounts volume via their Consortia partnerships and get new group leads and bookings.
Charlie Banta, General Manager
Warwick Hotel Rittenhouse Square
We joined WorldHotels primarily because we wanted to reformulate the image of our hotel and to communicate its uniqueness in our market. We could only do this with an international brand known for its independently minded members. We were not disappointed.
With the arrival of BWH, our individuality has not been affected but we now have added support, both nationally and internationally. We have the best of both worlds: the advantages of a worldwide, well known and professional distribution force, with the ability to remain independent, individual and in the market.
Frank Camilleri, General Manager
WorldHotel Cristoforo Colombo/WorldHotel Casati 18
It was about placing our hotel product into the right marketplace to trade in the upper-end and luxury segment. The relationship with WorldHotels works very well, we wanted to further, and more comprehensively, penetrate global markets such as North America, but as an independent hotel.
We are generally anti-brand and want to be recognized more as having a passion for the hotel itself and not for the brand, so a setup like this is perfect. Also, WorldHotels was easy to join and presented great value for us, it allows us to remain independent within a collection.
Tony Story, CEO of Kingsmills Hotel Group
Within the BWH Hotel Group, we successfully manage the Atrium Hotel Mainz as part of the WorldHotels Collection. Over 20 years of cooperation have resulted in a very close and fruitful partnership. We benefit not only from the professional know-how and the central services in international sales in the business travel, group and MICE segments, but also from the globally operating network of the BWH Hotel Group with its international marketing power. Here, there are always strong synergy effects with the WorldHotels head office. It also helps us that within the network, regionality and our roots in the economically strong Rhine-Main region are taken into account - after all, as hoteliers, we are all unique and individually positioned.
