Two Stein Collection Properties Awarded High Distinctions from Forbes Travel Guide’s Official 2018 Star Rating

February 22 2018

PARK CITY, Utah (February 2018) – Stein Collection is pleased to announce Stein Eriksen Lodge and The Spa at Stein Eriksen Lodge have once again garnered the prestigious Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star award, continuing to make it Utah’s only Forbes Five-Star hotel and spa. Also, The Chateaux Deer Valley and Glitretind Restaurant have again received the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star award. Stein Eriksen Lodge, The Spa, The Chateaux Deer Valley, and Glitretind Restaurant, all Stein Collection properties and amenities, are consistently ranked with such high honors among an elite list of establishments throughout the world, including year after year Forbes ratings and awards. The Forbes Travel Guide Star Rating has been the gold standard in the hospitality industry since 1958. 

“The Forbes Travel Guide Star Rating is truly a global benchmark for luxury travel,” said Russ Olsen, CEO of Stein Collection. “Qualifying for Five- and Four-Star status is an amazing accomplishment and validates the efforts of our entire team to make our properties and amenities the best in the world.” 

The Forbes Travel Guide Star Rating uses an objective set of judging criteria, unique among leading travel books, which sets national standards yet allows for regional and individual preferences. A carefully selected team of hospitality experts anonymously evaluates the establishments listed in the Guide, using a proprietary ratings process based on more than 500 rigorous and standardized criteria that are evaluated and updated annually. Properties must offer a level of experience appropriate to the cost, based on the quality of such items as décor, comfort, amenities, and services.

“In an online environment of confusion and clutter, Forbes Travel Guide is the most trusted source of information to assist guests in making informed decisions,” said Gerard J. Inzerillo, Chief Executive Officer of Forbes Travel Guide. “These properties, the largest and most global group in the company’s history, achieve an impeccable standard of excellence in hospitality, underscoring our overall mission of positively contributing to the international tourism industry, as well as the individual hotel experience. We are proud to congratulate everyone associated with the prestigious properties recognized today.”
