Forbes Travel Guide has announced its expansion into Europe, bringing its globally recognised star rating programme to central London’s top hotels and spas.  Six hotels and two hotel spas have been awarded the coveted Forbes Travel Guide 5-star rating.  These properties join an elite group of 76 hotels and 35 spas across North America and Asia that have achieved the Forbes Travel Guide 5-star status.

London is among the top three destinations worldwide with the greatest concentration of 5-star properties in the more than 140 markets rated and inspected by Forbes Travel Guide.

The London hotels contain no surprises in what is selected, it is the omissions that do arouse curiosity (why not the Connaught, Jumeirah and Mandarin Oriental for instance?).

  • 45 Park Lane
  • Claridge’s
  • Four Seasons Hotel London at Park Lane
  • The Dorchester
  • The Lanesborough, London
  • The Savoy

Plus the spas at the Spa at Four Seasons and Mandarin Oriental, London.

A further 16 hotels and 7 spas in London have earned the distinguished Forbes Travel Guide 4-star rating, joining 226 4-star hotels and 136 4-star spas worldwide. www.forbes.com/sites/forbestravelguide
