We verify luxury

Forbes Travel Guide is the global authority on luxury travel. Our anonymous professional inspectors travel the world to assess hotels, restaurants, and spas based on 900 objective standards. While we inspect both service and facility, our Star Rating system emphasizes quality of service because your experience at a hotel, restaurant, or spa goes beyond looks — how it makes you feel is what you will remember most.
