Forbes Travel Guide has revealed its 2018 Star Award winners. The 60th annual list of the world’s best hotels, restaurants and spas included nine U.S. Mountain West hotels that landed the prestigious Five-Stars and are located in the mountains or immediately surrounded by peaks.
Forbes Travel Guide, an online-only publication in 60 countries, uses a scoring system that weighs service at 75 percent (emphasizing graciousness, thoughtfulness and personalized service) and the facility quality at 25 percent. Congratulations to these properties and to The Broadmoor for being one of only 13 properties in the world to capture triple FiveStars for their hotel, restaurant and spa.
