About Les Clefs d’Or:
Les Clefs d’Or (translated as The Golden Keys) is a professional association of hotel concierges, with approximately 4,000 members working in over 80 countries and 530 destinations, in literally every corner of the world. Easily identified by the Golden Crossed Keys on their lapels, these members are an elite fraternity, globally connected, committed to professional development, and driven to setting new standards for guest service perfection.
With roots dating back to 1929, Les Clefs d’Or was officially founded in France in 1952, as a not-for-profit organization based on two pillars: Service and Friendship. Before earning the right to wear the Golden Keys, those who aspire to become a member must have several years of experience as a hotel concierge, pass comprehensive testing and prove beyond doubt, their ability to deliver the highest quality of service.
Serving more than 100 million guests every year, Les Clefs d’Or members fulfil an infinite variety of requests from the everyday to the extraordinary. As lifelong professional hotel concierges, their experience, knowledge and personal relationships make them the most reliable local experts and Ambassadors of their chosen destinations.
