Your ALP Innkeeper Membership includes membership in

AHLA (The American Hotel and Lodging Association)

What's In It For You?...PLENTY!

AHLA is the largest Lodging Association in the country, with about 30,000 properties. ALP saw an opportunity to partner with a group having similar interests and goals, such as regulating short term rentals and better visibility / accurate information on the OTAs. AHLA welcomed a partnership with ALP in order to more fully represent the B&B/Inn segment of the lodging industry.  ALP joined AHLA's Legislative Action Summit (9-2018) and met numerous legislators in Washington DC and presented our industry concerns.

When you become a ALP Innkeeper Member, your contact information is forwarded to AHLA and you then receive a welcome letter, information on accessing the AHLA website / member benefits, and a list of publications from which you may choose to receive.   

ALP / AHLA members may be especially interested in:

  • "Search Smarter" section, which provides talking points for guests to 'avoid shady deals' and "look before you book" - similar to our Book Direct movement.
  • "Illegal Hotels" section which provides stats on unregulated rentals, (for example: 81% of Airbnb’s U.S. revenue – $4.6 billion – comes from whole-unit rentals where the owner is not present during the time of the rental), articles and talking points to inform and prepare you to advocate for the 'level playing field' in your community.
