Michelin Unveils First US Hotel Awards A New Era for Luxury Travel

 

Discerning travelers seeking extraordinary experiences can rejoice! The revered Michelin Guide has ventured into luxury accommodations, unveiling its first-ever hotel "keys" rating system in the United States. Marking a new era for hospitality, this prestigious accolade identifies exceptional properties that capture the essence of their destinations.

After meticulously evaluating over 1,000 luxury hotels nationwide, 11 establishments received the coveted three-key distinction. These elite hotels, scattered across California and New York, have redefined luxury and local immersion standards. The 11 establishments are as follows:

California

  • The Beverly Hills Hotel, Dorchester Collection
  • Post Ranch Inn, Big Sur
  • SingleThread Inn, Healdsburg
  • Hotel Bel-Air, Dorchester Collection, Los Angeles
  • Auberge du Soleil, Auberge Resorts Collection, Rutherford
  • Meadowood Napa Valley, St. Helena
  • Canyon Ranch Woodside, Woodside

New York City

  • Crosby Street Hotel
  • The Whitby Hotel
  • Aman New York
  • Casa Cipriani New York

These havens promise unforgettable encounters that encapsulate the local character.

Gwendal Poullennec, the international director of the Michelin Guide, emphasizes that the criteria for these awards go beyond a mere checklist of amenities. Michelin prioritizes the holistic experience, seeking hotels that leave an indelible mark on guests, providing a true sense of place and creating lasting memories.

While some may raise an eyebrow at Michelin's foray into the hotel realm, their commitment to independent inspections and rigorous evaluation processes assures an unwavering pursuit of excellence. Multiple inspectors stay at each property, sometimes multiple times, ensuring a comprehensive and unbiased assessment of every aspect of the guest experience.

As the Michelin Guide's hotel keys expand their reach to more destinations in the coming years, luxury travelers can look forward to a trusted global reference that transcends brand labels and marketing rhetoric, guiding them towards truly extraordinary hospitality experiences.
