“The Forbes Travel Guide Star awards continue to recognize top-tier entities within the hospitality industry, and we are honored to be awarded Forbes status at four of our establishments,” said Russ Olsen, CEO of Stein Collection. “This recognition would not be possible without our incredibly dedicated, hardworking team of professionals who strive to ensure our guests receive an unmatched luxury experience at every turn.” 

Forbes Travel Guide, the only independent, global rating system for luxury hotels, restaurants, and spas, utilizes a team of professional inspectors to travel the world and assess properties based on 900 objective standards that determine the coveted star ratings. These individuals travel anonymously and evaluate a number of facility factors, as well as the service standards and overall feel of the experience – ultimately what matters most in a guest’s stay.
