Forbes Travel Guide 5-star
“Forbes Travel Guide is the global authority on luxury hospitality. Our professional inspectors travel the world to assess hotels, restaurants, and spas based on 900 objective standards that determine our coveted annual Star Ratings. We visit every hotel, restaurant, and spa that we Star Rate, paying our own way and staying anonymously as a typical guest. No one can buy a rating under any circumstance. Every Star Rating is earned through our objective, independent process. While we assess both service and facility, our Star Rating system emphasizes service because your experience at a hotel, restaurant, or spa goes beyond looks — how it makes you feel is what you will remember most. For more than 60 years, we have traveled the world to give guests the most reliable information on where to stay, dine and relax.”
