Please Note: Categories have been updated from previous years to enhance our program. Click here for the listing of award categories and descriptions. New this year, we will feature the top three finalist for the North Star Award (Lodging Employee of the Year) leading up to the awards ceremony and notify the winner live at our celebration in Washington, DC.

The AHLA Stars of the Industry awards program was created more than 45 years ago to recognize outstanding accomplishments in the lodging industry. While the categories have evolved over the years, the concept is still the same — to honor lodging employees and properties that best symbolize the quality service of the industry. We want to hear your story!
