Expectations from guests in the Vail area and lodging standards worldwide continue to rise as new luxury resort properties are developed.

Lodging Quality Assurance (LQA)

The mission of the Lodging Quality Assurance (LQA) program of the Vail Valley Partnership helps improve guest satisfaction by providing them with an advanced understanding of the property and unit they are choosing for their stay. Guests’ experience should match or exceed their expectations. LQA is a unique, community-wide initiative implemented to continually improve the quality and value offered by the Vail Valley’s lodging properties. Currently, any property sold through Vail/Beaver Creek and Vail Valley Partnership central reservations undergoes a detailed interior inspection and is assigned an LQA rating. An acceptable level of quality must be maintained in each unit to remain available for rent through the central reservation system or online booking engines.

The key elements of LQA are quality, condition and coordination. LQA also considers form and function. Items in each area of a unit are inspected and rated. Ratings are determined by the detailed criteria listed in this document. Each rating is given a point value and an overall unit rating is given which is a percentage out of 100%.
