They are the hotel rooms that are, according to the inspectors – ‘perfect’.
Forbes Travel Guide has unveiled its list of the world’s best hotel rooms for 2019 – and they all received maximum marks.
Undercover reviewers stayed at hundreds of properties across the globe assessing them on comfort, convenience, cleanliness and maintenance.
And according to Forbes Travel Guide, those on the best-of list have ‘rooms and bathrooms that are not only beautiful, but exceptionally comfortable, functional and elegantly appointed with special touches such as high-quality linens, an array of luxurious bath amenities and well-designed technology’.
The country with the most hotels on the list of 41 is the United States, with 12 properties recognised including The Peninsula Beverly Hills, Nobu Ryokan Malibu and The St Regis Aspen Resort.
China has the second most entries with six hotels on the list, followed by France with four.
Filip Boyen, Forbes Travel Guide CEO, said: ‘Forbes Travel Guide’s Verified List for the World’s Best Rooms of course showcases the most beautiful accommodations, but it goes beyond how the rooms look. Every hotel on this list was thoroughly tested and proved to be supremely comfortable, quiet and outfitted with superior amenities and technology.’ Scroll down to see some of the beautiful boudoirs that have made the list…
