Hilton and Small Luxury Hotels of the World (SLH) have struck an exclusive strategic partnership that will welcome Hilton guests to hundreds of independently-minded luxury hotels in the most sought-after destinations around the world.
This new partnership will dramatically expand the luxury experiences offered by Hilton as unique, SLH properties join the unparalleled hotels of the growing Waldorf Astoria, Conrad and LXR brands.
Through this exclusive partnership all of Hilton’s customers, including the more than 180 million members of Hilton Honors, will be able to book, earn and redeem Points for stays at participating properties in the SLH community of 560 luxury boutique hotels spanning 90 countries. These locations are highly complementary to Hilton’s vast network of hotels and will give guests access to additional luxury accommodations in hundreds of new destinations.
“Hilton guests are among the most sophisticated travellers in the world, and we are always looking for amazing new experiences to share with them,” said Chris Silcock, Hilton President of Brands and Commercial Services. “This relationship with Small Luxury Hotels of the World will grant Hilton customers and Hilton Honors members access to a community of high-end boutique hotels in exciting new luxury travel destinations, giving them more ways to dream, book, and earn and redeem points with Hilton.”
Participating SLH hotels will be bookable on all Hilton channels, giving those hotels exposure to a broad audience while allowing them to retain the independent spirit that makes each property unique.
“We’re thrilled to begin this win-win relationship with Hilton as it brings exciting possibilities for both brands,” said Shaun Leleu, Chairman, Small Luxury Hotels of the World. “Hilton customers, including Hilton Honors members, gain access to our unrivalled collection of exceptional boutique hotels, while our properties enjoy amplified reach to a loyal and discerning audience. It’s a game changer for independently owned hotels on a global scale.”
Further details of the new relationship will be announced soon.
The partnership with Small Luxury Hotels of the World adds to the company’s dramatic growth trajectory and reflects its focus on accelerating offerings for customers in the hottest, fastest-growing segments and markets of the industry.
On the local front, last week SLH forged a new partnership with Ovolo Hotels for seven properties including its luxury hotels in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Canberra.
Also in Australia, Small Luxury Hotels of the World has partnerships with Smiths Beach Resort in Yallingup, Western Australia; Islington Hotel in Hobart, Tasmania; Chalets at Blackheath, NSW and Le Mas Barossa, in the Barossa Valley, South Australia.
