According to Forbes, few hotels meet its exacting standards for a Five-Star ranking, which is the guide’s highest level of recognition and much coveted by operators throughout the hospitality industry.

The only independent, global rating authority for luxury hotels, restaurants and spas, the Forbes Travel Guide was originally published as the Mobil Travel Guide in 1958 and was the first to create a Five-Star classification system in the United States. Today, its inspectors travel the world incognito, evaluating properties based on up to 900 rigorous, objective standards.

The Forbes Travel Guide Star Ratings, reviews and daily travel stories help discerning travellers select the world’s best luxury hospitality and wellness experiences.
