We are excited to announce that based on input from numerous consumers looking for the best of the best properties, we are now accepting applications for Charter Membership in the all-new BedandBreakfast.com Diamond Collection. Designed to give innkeepers with stand-out properties the ability to truly stand out, these innkeepers will now be able to market themselves as a distinct group of leading properties that have undergone a comprehensive annual inspection (conducted by industry leaders InnConcierge), have the highest level of consumer ratings & reviews, and offer the highest level of amenities. This enhanced BedandBreakfast.com Diamond Collection marketing includes:
- Exclusive prominent placement on the BedandBreakfast.com home page (that has never before been available to innkeepers)
- Enhanced placement throughout the site on the state, region, city and property listing pages
- Enhanced search abilities for consumers, making it easier for them to search for Diamond Collection properties (coming soon)
- A BedandBreakfast.com Diamond Collection micro-site (coming soon)
- The ability to better market your stand-out property in your own marketing materials, on your website, and at your property with BedandBreakfast.com Diamond Collection graphics, plaques, and more
BedandBreakfast.com Diamond Collection properties will be required to meet certain standards and offer guests a higher level of amenities, including but not limited to:
- Have a property video online
- Offer guests the ability to book their room online on the innkeeper's own website/homepage (using any booking engine technology provider)
- Private baths
- Internet access
- Full breakfast
With more and more consumers demanding peer reviews and at the same time more consumers and innkeepers alike questioning the authenticity of peer reviews, we felt a truly comprehensive and regularly ongoing (annual) inspection program was needed for the B&B industry. In addition, we felt this new robust inspection process should work in conjunction with actual peer consumer ratings and reviews, providing potential guests with an assurance that Diamond Collection properties have not only passed a comprehensive on-site inspection, but also are consistently top-rated by previous guests.
We feel that by continuing to listen to feedback from innkeepers and inngoers alike, and launching new products and service to meet their needs, we remain in the best position to continue to provide value to all innkeepers -- Bronze members to Diamond Collection properties.
