About the Event

The American Hotel & Lodging Foundation is excited to welcome our industry back to Los Angeles for the 4th Annual Night of a Thousand Stars Gala on January 23, 2022. Join us the night before ALIS, as we honor the incredible resilience of hotel employees across the country and celebrate the AHLA Foundation programs that are helping the industry recruit and retain the stars of tomorrow. 

Stars Nominations 

The American Hotel & Lodging Foundation and The American Hotel & Lodging Association want to hear about the Stars that make your properties and organizations shine. As our industry continues on the path towards recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, it is our honor to showcase the individuals who continue to show up day-in and day-out to keep our industry afloat. We understand that we would not be where we are today without the unsung heroes and their resiliency towards furthering the values of our industry and the vision of the AHLA Foundation.

The nomination portal will close on Friday, October 1, 2021 at 11:59 PM EDT. Please contact Allison Brennan for questions on the nomination process.
