  • Best five star hotel on the planet is Opryland Hotel. There is nothing that is not offered or supplied. Its all about immenities, service, atmosphere and those little extras, not offered by three star hotels. Once you stay one night, in the Opryland Hotel, you will understand my answer.
  • Well, the service in a 5 star hotel will usually be much better. A 5 star hotel will have nicer rooms, certainly have a TV and internet (whereas a 3 star might not have either). The bathroom will be nicer and will certainly have complimentary items such as shampoo, conditioner, shower cap, hairdryer, etc. A 3 star may or may not have these items. They will have a wider range of breakfast choices at a 5 star, including hot food, which a 3 star might not offer. That's my experience.
  • Here's an idea about what to expect with each star rating: * 5 Stars - Luxury hotels: Treat yourself well with first-class services and accommodations. The hotel decor usually creates an elegant ambience from the lobby to each individual guest room or suite. Hotel restaurants are often renown for their famous chefs and delectable dishes and are usually located in the most desirable locations in major cities and resort areas. Other amenities include: valet parking, concierge service, room service, well-equipped fitness centers and state-of-the-art business centers. * 4 Stars - Deluxe/upscale hotels: Find comfort, class and quality that you can count on. These hotels will usually be in a prime location and other amenities may include: proximity to desirable shopping areas and restaurants, valet parking, concierge service, room service, well-equipped fitness centers and state-of-the-art business centers. These properties may be newly constructed or recently renovated, and offer tasteful decor in each room or suite. * 3 Stars - Mid-scale hotels: Discover convenience and comfort in the city or in the suburbs where many of these properties are located. Amenities that may be available include: swimming pools, fitness centers, room service, concierge service and parking. Often you'll find these properties located near highways and office complexes. Rooms and lobbies are nicely furnished, and restaurants are usually located at the property. * 2 Stars - Value Properties: Get back to basics with these comfortable properties that offer affordable prices. These properties are often located near office parks, airports, and shopping and retail areas. Rooms are comfortably decorated but not overly elegant. Usually, these properties do not have restaurants or room service, but offer free parking and sometimes, swimming pools. Transportation is occasionally offered to nearby airports. * 1 Star - Economy Hotels & Motels: Stay in simple accommodations that typically are located near major highways and transportation. Amenities include free parking, local calls and cable television. Restaurants are often located nearby, and room service is usually not available. Some economy hotels and motels have swimming pools located on the property. * Not Rated - Recent additions to the Orbitz hotel offerings that have not yet been rated. As soon as these receive a rating, we'll post it on the site. Disclaimer - These descriptions are meant as an overview of each star rating. The services, amenities and facilities offered at each property may differ. Please check with the details of the individual property to determine the amenities and services offered.

  • 1) "Many countries allow various classification systems for hotels in accordance to chain name and type of hotel, however, there is no international classification which has been adopted. There have been attempts at unifying the classification system so that it becomes an internationally recognized and reliable standard but large differences exist in the quality of the accommodation and the size and design of the accommodation, which play an integral part in defining which hotel category the specific accommodation fits. Food services, entertainment, view, room variations such as size and additional amenities, spas and fitness centers and location are also vital in establishing a standard. The more common classification systems include 'star' rating, letter grading, from 'A' to 'F', diamond (which is, in theory, similar to the star rating system), and simply a 'satisfactory' or 'unsatisfactory' footnote to unique property accommodations such as hostels and motels. Systems using terms such as Deluxe/ Luxury, First Class/ Superior, Tourist Class/ Standard, and Budget Class/ Economy are more widely accepted as hotel types, rather than hotel standards. Some countries have strict rating by a single public standard - in Europe there is Belgium, Denmark, Greece, Italy, Malta, Netherlands, Portugal, Spain and Hungary to have laws defining the hotel rating. In Germany, Austria and Switzerland the rating is defined by the respective hotel industry association using a 5-star system - the German classifications are Tourist (*), Standard (**), Comfort (***), First Class (****) and Luxus (*****) with the mark Superior to flag a number of extras beyond the minimum defined in the standard. In France the rating is defined by the public tourist board of the department with using a four star system (plus "L" for luxus) which has changed to a 5-star system from 2009 on. In South Africa and Namibia the Tourism Grading Council has strict rules for a number of different hotel types granting up to 5 stars in their category." "The expansion beyond the traditional "five star" rating has led to commentators questioning if it is simply more puffery or sales hype. The UK's Culture minister Kim Howells said that he was considering establishing a Government-endorsed standard to replace the many rating systems, which he said were "shambolic" and confused the consumer. Hamish Arthur of the Australian Hoteliers Association [ AHA ] said the current system was confusing for many consumers, and hotels were now reluctant to pay for an independent assessment when they could post equivalent self-ratings on accommodation websites. Mr Arthur said consumers became confused when they saw two very different facilities rated the same - for example a serviced apartment and a hotel - and he thought some overseas visitors mistakenly booked 5-star facilities that didn't meet their expectations on arrival."
