Forbes Travel Guide today unveiled its annual Star Rating list, naming Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa at the Disneyland Resort as a new Forbes Travel Guide Star Award winner. If you have visited this hotel, you know how very special it is – and the industry experts agree! As a Forbes Travel Guide Recommended Hotel, it marks the first time the craftsman-style retreat has received this honor and it is the only hotel in Anaheim to earn this distinction.

How do they choose the best of the best? Forbes Travel Guide’s anonymous inspectors scoured the globe in search of the top luxury experiences to discover the world’s best hotels, restaurants and spas to determine the 2019 Star Award winners. The only way to get a Star Rating is by earning it through Forbes Travel Guide’s independent inspection process. Their inspectors check into hotels and pose as ordinary guests. Once there, they test up to 900 objective, exacting standards that address even the smallest details.
