February 22, 2018 Accolades No Comments Email Email

Trump Hotel Group is honored to announce that its two newest hotels, Trump International Hotel Washington, D.C. and Trump International Hotel & Tower Vancouver have been designated as Forbes Five-Star Hotels.

It is unusual for two new hotels to achieve this prestigious recognition just after their first year of operation, and the Hotel Group is honored that these latest properties join the portfolio’s other Forbes Five-Star Hotels — Trump International Hotel & Tower® Chicago; Trump International Hotel & Tower® New York and Trump® International Hotel Waikiki.

Forbes Travel Guide, the global authority on luxury travel, sends anonymous professional inspectors around the world to assess hotels, restaurants and spas against up to 800 objective standards focused on service and facilities.

“It is a tremendous honor for our two newest hotels to be recognized as Forbes Five-Star Hotels so soon after opening,” said Trump Organization Executive Vice President Eric Trump. “This achievement is an incredible feat and a true testament to the efforts of our hotel teams who provide the unparalleled service that is a hallmark of our brand.”
