For 5-star accommodation there was only one place that Canadian travellers could stay for $200 or less in 2017, and that was Bangkok.
For the 4-star traveller there was much more selection – 26 destinations in Europe, Asia, Latin America, Canada and the USA.
The 3-star category was predominantly a North American affair with Canada and USA registering 6 destinations apiece, stretching from Montreal and Toronto to Miami and Honolulu. European destinations included favourites such as London, Paris, Rome, Barcelona, Florence and Venice. Tokyo was the only man standing for Asian destinations.
When we move to 2-star accommodation we find that it’s all about the U.S. All the destinations here were American and included Los Angeles, New York and San Francisco.
Hotel star ratings explained
There is no universal star rating system. Each country has its own and, in some cases such as the UK, more than one. This means that travellers should be aware of a possible disparity of standards and facilities when booking rooms with the same star ratings in different countries.
Checking out guests reviews is another way of judging the standard of a hotel. Hotels.com has more than 25 million verified guest reviews from people who have actually stayed in the hotels and their opinions can really help travellers find the most rewarding travel experience possible.
