Reclaim American Jobs - Buy American Hotel Rooms

Updated on March 25, 2016

Did you know there are American hotels and there are non-American hotels? Does the location of the corporate headquarters bother you? Should it? Only if you want your neighbors and your children to have a job.

Let's review the top luxury hotels and see where their headquarters and where the majority of their staffing is located.

Star Classification - Hotels Verses Celebrate Made in USA

The star classification system is a common one for rating hotels. Essentially, the higher the star rating, the higher level of services and care and greater luxury and typically price tag too.

Wikipedia shares with us that there is no single world hotel international rating. There is a movement to standardize by the World Hotel Rating (WHR) project. WHR goal is to standardize the classification worldwide and develop labels to promote hotels distinguished by specific features.

For our purposes, we have simply two categories - 5 star - everything is American or US based or 4 star - the majority is US based. Headquarters and corporate charter are key to the rating of celebrate made in USA. Returning the profits, employing Americans is the stated goal of the two ratings. It is a celebration indicating the corporate commitment to the American people.
