How are hotels rated on a scale of 1 to 5 stars?
How are hotels rated on a scale of 1-5 stars? What companies give out ratings? What are the ratings for the Ritz-Carltons, the Four Seasons, and the Roosevelt hotels in Manhattan. Can you give a short list on what hotel chains would rank on the scale 1-5 stars?
Question answered by Wishful Thinking
It varies on the hotel and the customer service. Like a nasty disgusting hotel with horrible service is maybe going to get a one star rating. However, a hotel that has good customer service and a nice atmosphere is going to get a higher rating. AAA uses diamonds instead of stars for ratings. But travel companies have ratings based on the customer feedback for the hotel visit.
http://ezinearticles.com/?How-Hotels-Are-Rated&id=5672029 <--- This mentions what you would get for a one star, two star, three star, four star and five star hotel. Like a Marriott would be about a four star rating.
Included are some other sites that explain about the rating as well. Hope it helps. :)
What are some hotels within walking distance of a metro rail in Boston?
I am looking for hotels at 130 or lower in the Boston area that are near a metro rail that are in decent areas? Thanks.
Question answered by Whatever4
Most Boston hotels are near the T, but $130 is tough. Dates are important. Try Hotwire or Priceline.
How do hotels supply enough hot water for every room?
In some hotels there are over three thousand rooms. What enables this huge supply of hot water? Hot water eventually goes at my house, but why not at hotels?
Question answered by DANIEL S
Most large hotels have very large steam boilers with what's called an indirect hot water system that gives a virtually endless supply of hot water.
Some of this is based on the fact that not every room will "call" for hot water at the same time, do that, & you might run it out, but not likely.
The reason that the water is hot pretty much instantaneously is they have a hot water return system which is basically a pipe that forces cold water back to the boiler before it can escape from the hot water tap.
Hope this shed a little light on the question!!
What brand of soap and shampoo do hotels and apartelles provide to their guests?
What brand of soap do hotels and apartelles use in cleaning the bathroom and toilet? How sure are we that the hotel is sanitized and free from bacteria?
Question answered by Renee
Every hotel has a different brand of soap and shampoo...usually it tells you on the back of the bottle or label..
Now..if you are wondering if the hotel room is sanitized? You can only hope and pray that it is...
anymore I bring anti-bacterial wipes with me everytime I travel and wipe things down before I use it.

What hotels are good to stay in in vegas?
I'm going to be going to Vegas for my 21st birthday in a year (generic i know) and i was wondering what are some good hotels on the strip that are affordable but clean? I have read about the Flamingo and wanted to know if anyone has stayed there and has any comments about their stay? Anybody have any other suggestions as to what hotels may be good? Thanks a bunch!
Sorry GSpin I accidently gave a thumbs down rating to your answer, I meant to do a thumbs up lol! Yours was the best answer, thanks
Question answered by Dorkus
I have nothing but good things to say about The Flamingo. It is by far my favorite hotel on Las Vegas for Overall Value. Anyway here's a review I wrote about it on Yelp.com
I'll start off with the bad first: we came in early around noon, and were told to come back around 3 pm to get our keys. We came back at 3 pm, they said come back at 4 pm cus the room wasn't ready. That's okay cus technically check-in time is 4 pm. Came back at 4 pm and was told the room wouldn't be ready for 30-45 minutes....we asked for a manager. Our room was ready in 10 minutes, and he gave us a $30 coupon to use at the bar or gift shop. So that's decently fair.
Anyway Flamingo's location is quite possibly the best on the strip. Right smack dab in the middle, what more could you ask for? The distance from room to elevator to the strip was real short unlike so many other casinos where it's an absolute chore to get from your room to the strip or vice versa. And I like how when you walk out of the casino..you're right on the sidewalk...there's no long ass escalator/path you have to take to get to the sidewalk. I mean wow.
We also liked the rooms considering we got the upgrade Go! Rooms that are newly remodeled, and look nothing like the outside of the casino (which is starting to show it's age pretty badly). The beds were big, clean, and comfy. Huge ass 42" LCD TV, a TV in the bathroom mirror, a separate shower and tub. The shower also had some body jets which was nice. No problems with the water temp. or pressure. I'm used to staying in standard rooms or Vegas or even sh*t holes like Tropicana...this was anything but that.
Service: I didn't like how they couldn't guarantee my dry cleaning would get to me in the 6-8 pm slot that it said on the bag, but it did arrive on time. The cleaning ladies did a decent job, and didn't steal anything so that's also good. And when we called for our bags, extra glasses, and hangers..they were quickly brought up (very quickly)..that's good.
Casino: The theme is losing it's touch, but it's still decently nice inside. It's not Bellagio, it's not O'Sheas either. Drinks take a little while to get to you, but I think I was up a couple hundred in this casino, and my buddy won $2,000 w/the lucky lady jackpot on the blackjack table...plus they had $5 and $10 tables during busy times..that works for me.
Pool: Really nice, I came a little late so no staff or bar was to be found...but I'm sure in the hotter days it'd be excellent.
View: my two rooms had amazing views. One had a good view of the pool, and the other had amazing view of the Bellagio fountains.
Price: I originally booked the Go! rooms directly through Flamingo for $590 each plus tax for Friday & sat night. Then I cancelled and rebooked them for $610...why you may ask. Because I found a cheaper rate of $540 on Orbitz. Due to their Best Rate Guarantee..they not only matched the cheaper rate, but they dropped it 25%. Our rooms now were a little under $400 for the weekend per room. Sounds like a great deal to me.
Overall: Other a few slight quirks here and there. I can't give Flamingo any less than 5 stars. I'm sure it'd be different if we paid more and/or were stuck with a standard room. But considering of our group we paid $100 each for the room here, compared to the $70 each at Tropicana or $90 each for Bally's. I definitely will say Flamingo was well-worth the little extra money for the room quality and strip location. I'd highly recommend Flamingo's Go! Rooms to anyone who wants a great value on the strip.
p.s. Other suggestions: Ballys for the same price range. also affordable, great locaiton, clean. Stay away from Tropicana it's garbage.
anyway great websites:
www.yelp.com - real reviews by real people
www.cheapovegas.com - critics reviews but gives reviews on the casinos, their service, clientele, rooms, pool, etc.

What are the differences of hotels before and hotels nowadays?
Hey! I just wanna know what kind of services hotels back then offered that hotels these days still do offer or stuffs that old hotels used to serve and are now considered as obsolete services by new hotels, it could also be that only a few hotels are still offering those stuffs or they still have it but in a different way...Any answer would really help thank you.
has anybody tried staying in one of Paris' hotels?
what was it like?XD
Question answered by Phoenix
Besides the Bible, hotels today offer Internet service or state-of-the-art technology which old hotels didn't have. Other security such as key-card room, 24-hour CCTV security surveillance system, international Direct Dial (IDD) telephone through optic-fibre cable.
I never understood why they even have Bible in the hotel because if people want to have affairs, they'd be too busy doing something else rather than look for the bible :-)
Other services such as spa & fitness-center, beauty salon and several shops, baby sitter on request, recent release movie pay channels, large screen plasma televisions, Wedding/Meeting/Banquets, concierge service that older hotels may not have.

What are hotels with large staircases in Southern California?
My best friend is looking for hotels that have large staircases. She wants to have a Phantom of the Opera themed wedding and needs a staircase to create a special scene. She plans to come down the staircase as her fiance comes up. They are going to sing a duet together. Any ideas of hotels that would be suitable?
Question answered by Annelie P
The historic Biltmore Hotel in downtown Los Angeles has a most beautiful curved staircase.
It's so stunning, it has been featured in countless movies. I have stayed at the hotel, and can personally testify to the staircase beauty.
The whole lobby is gorgeous.
This hotel most likely has the best hotel staircase in Los Angeles.
