The Leading Hotels of the World Introduces Stay It Forward Certificates

NEW YORK, NY— (August 2020) The Leading Hotels of the World, Ltd. (LHW) has banned together with their member hotels to create Stay It Forward certificates to support their community through this difficult time. 100% of the certificates’ proceeds will be donated to the employees of the hotel facing financial hardships, or to a charity doing essential work in their local communities.

Select LHW members are selling a limited number of Stay It Forward certificates for USD 1,500. The pre-paid stay certificates are designed to be of use now, and later. Now, because 100% of the funds generated by the sale of each certificate provide financial assistance to those that need it most. And later, because travelers will have a holiday they’ve been dreaming of on the horizon.

Stay It Forward certificates are valid into 2022 and include:
  • A 2-night stay at double occupancy at a participating hotel
  • Access to an exclusive experience during the stay, such as a wine blending session in Mendoza, Argentina, a private tour around the Greek island of Zakynthos, or an exclusive tour of The Ritz Kitchen in London
  • A 1-year Leaders Club membership (USD 175 value)
  • 1,500 Leaders Club bonus points (USD 120 value – free stays begin around 3,000 points) that may be applied toward a future stay booked through LHW
