Forbes Travel Guide has released its 2018 Star Award Winners list, crowning six Canadian hotels with 5-star ratings.
According to the Guide, the global rating system for luxury hotels, restaurants, and spas is the only independent system that is based on up to 900 objective criteria.
The Forbes team visits these hotels anonymously, to have the same experience as a typical hotel guest.
“While we inspect 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,” states the Guide.
While 55 Canadian hotels, out of 1,609 global properties, top their list for everything from accommodation to culinary experiences, six hotels were given the full 5-star rating by Forbes.
Here are the top Canadian hotels, all with 5-star ratings, according to the 2018 Forbes Travel Guide.
