The California Hotel & Lodging Association invites you to nominate your employees and property for the 2023 Stars of the Industry Awards.

The Stars of the Industry awards program was created more than 40 years ago by the American Hotel & Lodging Association 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.

CHLA & CABBI member properties are eligible to nominate one employee from their staff for the HD Supply Housekeeping Award, Outstanding Lodging Employee, Manager of the Year, General Manager of the Year, Women in Lodging Connect Leader of the Year, or the Stevan Porter Emerging Hospitality Leader of the Year. In addition, properties may enter their best public relations programs in one of the four categories for CHLA’s property achievement awards — Good Earthkeeping, Guest Services, Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, and Community Service. Click here for more details on each award category.

The top three nominees will be invited to attend this year’s awards luncheon on December 1, 2023, where the winners will be announced. Click here for Stars of the Industry Awards event details.

Nomination Guidelines:

Properties may submit one entry per category. Nominations should be about 500 words describing why the employee or property is a Star. Please provide detailed examples. Supporting materials such as photos, videos* and reviews can be uploaded with your nomination. All entries must be from a CHLA or CABBI member in good standing. All submitted materials become the property of CHLA and will not be returned.
