Forbes Travel Guide, formerly Mobil Travel Guide, has defined the industry’s highest standard for excellence in hospitality for more than 50 years. As the originators of the prestigious Star Rating system, Forbes Travel Guideprovides one of the most comprehensive evaluation systems of hotels, restaurants and spas in the world. Star Ratings are awarded by a team of anonymous professional inspectors. In the words of Forbes Travel Guide, its inspectors “travel the world to assess hotels, restaurants and spas against up to 800 objective standards.” Star Ratings ultimately emphasise quality of service. Five-Star properties are defined as “outstanding, often iconic properties with virtually flawless service and amazing facilities.”
Hotel General Manager Christoph Schmidinger is humbled by the acknowledgments and wants to express gratitude to both The Gallivanter’s Guide and Forbes Five-Star Awards. To have received twenty stars and another covetable award at the same time means a lot to the Hotel staff, and he praised the consistency of service from the team at Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong in every outlet- the renowned restaurants Lung King Heen and Caprice, the Spa, and the Hotel overall. He also noted the dedication required to achieve the coveted Five-Star accolade and hold on to it for so many years running. “It’s not a one off, it’s proof of consistency. Guests can rely on enjoying Five-Star service when coming to us.”
