Lodging Quality Assurance

What's in a name? A lot actually if you're the Vail Valley and you're known for perfectly manicured ski runs, tantalizing cuisine, pampering and lodging options fit for a king. To ensure guest expectations are met, the Vail Valley participates in the Lodging Quality Assurance program, providing a standardized rating of Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze for rental units.

Currently, any property sold through Vail/Beaver Creek Reservations and Vail Valley Partnership must undergo a detailed interior inspection and is assigned an LQA rating, demonstrating the area's commitment to offering its guests an exceptional experience.

Vail Valley Partnership has created the Lodging Quality Assurance Vendor Certification program to educate vendors on product tier levels and the Lodging Quality Assurance Program through certification.

The objective of the vendor certification program is to allow ease of purchasing for homeowners when upgrading their rental properties and to ensure products meet rating standards. Learn more here.

LQA is a program of Vail Valley Partnership.
