Forbes Travel Guide Ratings Process
The rating process is exacting, and hotels do not know when they are being inspected. Through their thorough ratings process, travelers can rest assured knowing they are choosing among the best hotels and resorts around the world.
It starts with an incognito inspection including up to 900 Forbes Travel Guide standards that are focused 70% on service and 30% on facilities.
Next, scores are generated from the inspector’s responses and sent to the Ratings team for validation.
Hotels are evaluated every year, so they must maintain the service and facility standards to keep their rating.
