Forbes Travel Guide has unveiled its annual Star Rating List, naming Holiday Inn Macao Cotai Central as a Four-Star Hotel for four consecutive years, at the 2017 Star Ratings. Originally created in 1958 in the United States, the Forbes Travel Guide is recognised worldwide as America’s original hospitality star rating system and its inspectors travel the world to experience and rate the very best hotels, restaurants and spas for their readers.
Holiday Inn Macao Cotai Central has the unique distinction of being the first and only Holiday Inn in the world to receive an official Star Rating recognition by Forbes in 2014 and maintains its elite status.
“This accolade reflects our team’s dedication to service excellence, and highlights our desire to create affordable, comfortable and friendly experiences for every kind of visitor – from families to business and leisure travellers,” commented Bede Barry, General Manager of Holiday Inn Macao Cotai Central.
“2016 was an outstanding year for our property, and we are hugely grateful to be the only Holiday Inn in the world to receive an official Star Rating by Forbes – now for the fourth year in a row. But while we take pride in this success, we will continue to work hard on driving product innovation, excellence and customer satisfaction throughout our entire operation.”
From its modern décor and abundant dining choices, there are many attributes that make Holiday Inn Macao Cotai Central stand out. The hotel’s 1,224 guestrooms and suites feature a bright, contemporary design, and is part of the fully integrated resort complex of Sands® Cotai Central, which provides a broad array of business, leisure, and entertainment options to suit every type of guest, along with a diversity of choices in world-class accommodation, dining, retail, entertainment, meeting facilities and the world’s first player-centric “Live-Action Role-Play” (LARP) theme park experience, the Planet J, a new era in immersive family entertainment.
“We are delighted to recognize the 2017 Star Rating recipients, an exceptional collection of hotels, restaurants and spas that demonstrates a strong culture of service,” said Gerard J.
