This paper presents the results of a study of hotels that are certified for\ud quality management to identify the reasons for seeking quality certification.\ud The authors analyze whether internal or external drivers for seeking\ud certification have different impacts on benefits and the use of quality tools in\ud the hotel industry. The analysis groups hotels according to the importance of\ud their internal reasons for certification, and uses cluster analysis to identify\ud the significant differences between groups of hotels. The findings for the 32\ud hotels analysed show that hotels that pursued certification for internal\ud reasons develop better quality tools and have increased levels of benefits.
