DENVER, CO, July 01, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ — With no world-wide standard, hotel and resort rankings can be challenging to decipher. The difference between stars and diamonds is murky, the countless rating platforms that operate solely on opinions are not always reliable, and the boom in the travel industry has multiple resorts all claiming to be “Number 1” in their area.
World Class Certification Services, Inc. is a brand-new service that is raising the bar on luxury hotel and resort ratings on a global level. Based in Denver, Colorado, WCCS is a powerful, third-party verification of quality that is not afforded by various other ranking services. After a hotel or resort has applied for certification, a highly trained inspector will spend 4-5 days evaluating the property using World Class Certification’s proprietary inspection protocol. The inspection covers everything from the landscaping to the turn-down process to the temperature of the pool water.
The brainchild of Kevin Moll, the founder and originator of the global brand Mystery Shoppers and President & CEO of Restaurant Consultants Inc., World Class Certification Services was purchased and launched in June 2017 by powerhouse management team, Deina & Sara Elliott. With over 45 years of combined experience in hospitality, customer service, and restaurant & bar operations the duo is ready to up the ante when it comes to luxury travel.
“We saw the need for a worldwide standard. If you book a 5-star rated hotel in France, chances are it is going to be very different than, say, a AAA-Black Diamond rated resort in the United States. In many European countries, owners can simply purchase the rating of their choice or they are assigned by the government. In North America, the big rating companies all seem to be selling something: ad space, booklets, travel guides. We aren’t interested in that. Our goal is to offer top-level hotels the opportunity to genuinely distinguish themselves as being the best of the best. When you book a hotel or resort that has been World Class Certified, you know you are going to have a consistent and truly luxurious vacation experience no matter where you are in the world.”
Some of the minimum features for certification include: a swimming pool, at least one on-site fine dining restaurant, 24-hour room service, and a high-end spa or fitness facility. Boutique, historic, or unique properties are exempt from meeting all requirements and are encouraged to apply.
