Top 7 Reasons Why a Ritz-Carlton Hotel Incentive
is More Than Worth It

travel incentives

Webster’s Dictionary offers the following definitions for luxury:

-Something inessential but conducive to pleasure and comfort.
-Something expensive or hard to obtain.
-Sumptuous living or surroundings: lives in luxury.

If you haven’t had the experience, staying at a Ritz-Carlton Hotel covers all three of those definitions. The general consensus about this particular chain of hotels is clear – this is good living

“For those who want to feel indulged, this is the place to stay. “ Frommer’s

“The place to stay if you're in the mood to be pampered.”

Few hotel names conjure visions of elegance more than Ritz-Carlton. That’s why offering a stay at a Ritz-Carlton hotel for a hotel incentive presents a variety of opportunities for you and is a great motivator. Here are 7 more reasons:

1. Luxury promotes success. What really makes an incentive work and change behaviors is something tangible, a product or experience that the recipient wouldn't otherwise purchase for themselves. A true luxury, like a stay at a Ritz-Carlton.

2. Leverages the power of the brand to your company. Your company, in the same sentence as Ritz-Carlton instantly creates quality recognition and quality by association. The message you send is quality, that you deeply care about the participants, and that you have put a lot of thought into the award.

3. Unique experience. We are willing to bet that very few of your audience have ever spent a night at a Ritz-Carlton, now they have the opportunity if they only reach your goal you set for them. Throw in some other amenities (spa, golf course time in the region, etc.) and get some even more added value to the reward.

4. A Memorable Experience. This is something they will be proud to talk about to anyone and everyone at the company. Make it available for them and a spouse and it sweetens the pot. This creates the sense that you are a family oriented workplace beyond the day-to-day operations. In addition, the recipients will long remember this award and remember you for it.

5. Flexibility and Choice. The Ritz-Carlton incentives let the recipient decide when and where they want to go. You hand out the award certificate and you are done, Ritz-Carlton handles the rest. They will help the recipient book the experience, the location, and date that works within their schedule. Plus, if they’re taking a vacation, imagine how much better their experience will be with accommodations of this stature?

6. Everyone can use it. You don't have to worry about whether or not somebody already has one or if they have gone before. Ritz-Carlton has 35 properties in North America. Even if the participants have gone to one of those locations before, they will want to go back in style this time.

7. Value. This is not just a valuable incentive, it creates implied value and sets the stage for your employees to perceive your incentive efforts as something extremely important and not just a ploy to increase sales or boost morale. This is of immeasurable value to the company in the near term and in the future.
