ABOUT MUSE Hotel Awards

The MUSE Hotel Awards is a part of the MUSE Awards Program, which was created by the International Awards Associate (IAA) in 2015. IAA’s inception was based on a mission to honor, promote and encourage creative and design works, and over the years that evolved into honoring excellence in an individual’s craft. This newfound mission is the cornerstone of MUSE Hotel Awards’ goals.

We want to bring out the best of world-class hotels and other hospitality establishments in the world. Each year, thousands of international travelers and industry stars vote on their favorite establishment during a month-long period to determine the winners. World-class hotels can enter the MUSE Hotel Awards by selecting hotel categories that highlights their extraordinary locations, facilities, designs and top notch guest services.
