Your membership in the Maryland Hotel Lodging Association (MHLA) enables us to represent the industry with ONE POWERFUL VOICE on state and local issues that impact Maryland’s Lodging industry.  MHLA efforts directly impact the bottom line for every hotel in the State, which in turn helps to advance the industry and the opportunities available to those within it.

In addition to the benefit of advocacy, members have access to Legal and HR resources, educational training, professional development, industry news and alerts, cost-saving programs and more. Right now, hundreds of hotel owners, General Managers, Presidents/CEOs, franchisees, suppliers, attractions, and other industry partners are taking advantage of countless benefits that help their lodging establishments and/or companies run more efficiently and profitably.

Please review the membership categories below to take advantage of the exclusive opportunities MHLA provides:

Corporate Membership is open to individuals/managers who work for hotel companies, but do not work for a specific hotel (i.e. Regional Managers, Vice Presidents, etc.). Corporate membership is complimentary if 100% of your Maryland properties are dues paying members.  Otherwise Corporate Member dues must be paid annually and at least one Maryland property must be enrolled as an Active Member.

An “Allied Member” is any organization that supplies a specific product or service to the lodging industry, or any destination, CVB, Chamber of Commerce, attraction or government entity which supports the Maryland Lodging Industry.  MHLA acts as a conduit for these companies to grow their industry knowledge, increase visibility within the industry, network and conduct business with other members.
