As a leading authority in the travel industry, Forbes Travel Guide released their 2018 Star Ratings for hotels, restaurants and spas across the world, this week. Magnolia Hotel & Spa is proud to be listed with a four-star rating for its fifth year in a row, one of only four properties on Vancouver Island to meet the rigorous standards.

The rating echoes Magnolia Hotel & Spa’s commitment to providing guests with a truly curated Victoria getaway. Located in the heart of the city, just steps away from the scenic Inner Harbour and the best shopping and eateries, the hotel offers guests the comfort of convenience, alongside a warm and welcoming ambience, guest-tailored service and thoughtful amenities to enhance each guest’s stay, from the moment they step through the door.

“As one of the world’s most recognized travel authorities, it is such an honour to be so highly-regarded by Forbes,” says general manager, Bill Lewis. “I’d like to thank our dedicated and talented team for ensuring the highest standards in hospitality are consistently exceeded, as well as our guests for their continuous support, as we enter our 20th year of operation.”

With a list of over 900 criteria considered in the ranking system, Forbes Travel Guide has been the gold standard in the hospitality industry since 1958.

“We are pleased to honour the 2018 Star Rating recipients, an exceptional collection of hotels, restaurants and spas that demonstrate a strong culture of service,” said Gerard J. Inzerillo, Chief Executive Officer of Forbes Travel Guide.

“In an online environment of confusion and clutter, Forbes Travel Guide is the most trusted source of information to assist guests in making informed decisions,” Inzerillo said. “These properties, the largest and most global group in the company’s history, achieve an impeccable standard of excellence in hospitality, underscoring our overall mission of positively contributing to the international tourism industry as well as individual hotel experience. We are proud to congratulate everyone associated with the prestigious properties recognized today.”
