Forbes Travel Guide announces its Global Star Ratings yearly, so visit often and discover our list of the world's finest hotels, restaurants and spas. Only properties that meet our hospitality standards — the most stringent in the industry — achieve a Five Star, Four Star or Recommended rating. Our professional inspectors check into and check out every property we rate regularly, evaluating more than 500 criteria to determine a Star Rating that takes the guess work out of travel planning and establishes a global benchmark for luxury travel.
