|Criterias to become a SDH|
1. Becoming a Swiss Deluxe Hotels Member
1.1. Only five-star hotels eligible.
1.2. Hotel must be independently managed or belong to a hotel chain.
1.3. Hotel must be individually and personally managed.
1.4. Hotel must stick to agreed rules.
1.5. Hotel must achieve minimum % (currently 79%) in Service Excellence inspection.
2. Minimum qualitative requirements
Furniture/fittings and premises:
Fulfillment of agreed rules
These rules are bases on SHV standards for five-star hotels together with Swiss Deluxe Hotels' own specific standards. These can be obtained from Swiss Deluxe Hotels head office.
Attainment of 79% in the Mystery Shopper "Service Excellence" inspection, which is currently carried out by Leading Quality Assurance.
In order to conform with the changing needs of international guests in luxury hotels, these standards are revised annually by the quality commission.
3. Minimum quantitative requirements
In principle there are no quantitative criteria (number of rooms, number of members, ownership, financial performance, etc.).
4. Geographical requirements and limitations
There are no geographical criteria (proximity of competing hotels, position, number of SDHs per location, etc.)
5. Minimum requirements for newly opened hotels
Newly opened hotels need only satisfy the hard- and software requirements outlined under point 2. An application for membership can be made before the hotel opens. However, the actual acceptance procedure (hard- and software inspection) will only take place after the hotel has opened for business.
6. Suggested procedure
The quality commission keeps an eye on developments in Switzerland's five-star market and suggests potential members. All other members and head office can likewise suggest hotels for acceptance. A new hotel can submit an application to head office independently.
The hotel submits an application to SDH head office and the latter explains the procedure to the hotel. If the hotel agrees to this, it first receives
a. a visit from the quality commission (hardware).
b. Once the hardware inspection has been completed satisfactorily, head office asks our neutral, external inspection company to check the service quality ("software"). The conditions to be met are supplied to the candidate before the inspection.
c. If this report is also satisfactory, the hotel is accepted as a member of Swiss Deluxe Hotels.
