Forbes Travel Guide Announces 2011 Five- and Four-Star Award-Winners

November 19, 2010 By:Mary Winston Nicklin

The Grand Del Mar, San DiegoReleased this week: the list of four- and five-star winners from Forbes Travel Guide, formerly the Mobil Travel Guide. This year's round-up includes 54 five-star hotels, 23 five-star restaurants, and 20 five-star spas in North America. Four-star winners include 167 hotels and resorts, 152 restaurants and 108 spas. Some analysis from the USA Today:

There are 54 five-star hotels, same as last year. The two new ones were offset by the loss of Dallas' The Mansion on Turtle Creek, which has fallen to four stars, and The Hotel Bel-Air in L.A., which is closed for renovation and not rated. Longest-running five-star: The Broadmoor in Colorado, logging its 51st year. There are 23 five-star rated restaurants. As for spas, the two new (of 20) five-star oases are The Spa at The Grand Del Mar, outside San Diego, and The Spa at Mandarin Oriental in CityCenter, Las Vegas.
