The Inn Experience
" Select Registry’s mission is to promote and elevate niche, specialty accommodations into a universal, recurring pursuit. We empower like-minded travelers and properties to find one another through authentic and comfortable lodging experiences. "
Select Registry Bed & Breakfast Inns
All of us like to be pampered. Whether it's that Godiva chocolate on the pillow, the exceptional service from the front desk, or the beautiful surroundings of a small luxury hotel, Select Registry innkeepers make sure that you'll receive the attention you deserve. For over 30 years, our association has carried out a quality assurance inspection for each of its luxurious member properties. This program involves independent inspectors-not employees of Select Registry-with years of experience in the hospitality industry. The inspectors arrive unidentified, spend the night, and evaluate the inn or small hotel on a detailed point system, which translates into a pass/fail grade for the property. Not all inns, B&B's, and small luxury hotels have what it takes to pass the inspections, and this process provides a guarantee to the traveling public that a Select Registry destination is in a class of its own.
No other online directory or organization of innkeepers has a comparable inspection program. In fact, a recent New York Times article noted that the proliferation of "inns" has resulted in an industry rife with misrepresentation, lack of quality control, and widely varying room rates. With its rigorous inspection program, Select Registry has established quality as a hallmark of its member properties. Few, if any, small luxury hotels can match the attention to detail for which our innkeepers are known.
For many years, the symbol of the Association was a lit lantern, symbolizing "the Shining Light of Hospitality." Today, this value continues to be an essential component of who we are. In an increasingly impersonal world, the "personal touch" of a welcoming innkeeper is often what sets apart a lodging experience, and, in conjunction with comfort, luxury and quality, are what our properties are known most for. Whether it is the personal greeting by the owner/innkeeper, a convivial meal, solicitous meeting of special needs, or passing along the association directory as a gift to a new friend-quality and hospitality ultimately continue to define the concept of "traveling the Select Registry way."
