Forbes Travel Guide’s team of anonymous inspectors constantly travel the globe gathering firsthand knowledge of the latest innovations and service enhancements at the world’s finest properties. These observations are critical to the company’s exclusive set of 890 objective standards, the most stringent in the hospitality industry, as they are annually modified to reflect current market offerings and demands.
“Our star-rated properties continually push the boundaries of the guest experience and consistently exceed expectations of luxury service,” said Gerard J. Inzerillo, chief executive officer of Forbes Travel Guide. “They set an unimpeachable standard of excellence in hospitality, so it is not surprising they are at the forefront of the industry and setting the trends that others are talking about and will ultimately follow.”
