How Does Hotel Star Rating Work?

Ratings

Hotel ratings have always baffled us. We are never sure as to how a hotel star rating, nor are we aware of the factors that are included in rating a hotel. As of now, we know that rating that is given for a hotel depends on the facilities that a hotel can provide to the clients. Most of us even today believe that 5 is the maximum star rating that hotels can get, which is not true star rating exceed that point. So, here are some of the things that you have to know when it comes to rating a hotel.

Standardised rating:

Even today, while we have reached globalisation in a lot of factors, we still haven’t reached a standard as to how hotels have to be rated. The global countries follow different rating systems. A hotel that is ranked at three-star rating might have a two-star rating in one place and four at a different place. So, this is one of the biggest problems with the rating in the modern times. However, recently there are steps taken to bring a globalised rating system.

If you how CRAs work:

CRAs mean the Credit Rating agencies that are functions across the globe. The CRAs work to rate the financial trustworthiness of an individual, hotels, companies etc. There is a particular ranking system that these credit rating organisations practice. That is the same pattern that the hotel ranking systems follow. There are also AAA and AA rating and based on that star ranking is given to a hotel.

Facilities in a hotel:

The rating factors always focus on the facilities and goodwill of an organisation. The facilities that are provided in a hotel and divided into five layers and a star for each rating. Passing this as a measure the hotels are rated. The locations nearby, the tourist attraction a place enjoys are also some of the factors that are taken into count while rating a hotel.

Affordability:

It is also a known factor that affordability of a person decreases as the hotel rating goes up. It is also stated that there are only 26 hotels in the world that can be called as star hotels as per a recent survey. Then imagine the kind of luxury and the facility that people who stay there. So, when it comes to rating, there also a goes a price along with that, and that is the reason as to why affordability becomes as a question mark for a common man in taking an accommodation at a star hotel.

How much you are planning to spend:

How much you are planning to spend the money on a hotel will play a major role in deciding the type of hotel that you will stay.

This is because it is only based on the budget you can look for the amenities in a hotel and the facilities that it can provide. In case if you can’t afford it, or if you can afford better then you can always look for a better option.

Location:

In most of the cases, we will have a reason such as a tour when we are trying to look for an accommodation. The location of the hotel will play a major role in many cases.

Then you will have to check the proximity of the hotel with regard to the tourist spots and also other facilities such as food, hospitals, supermarkets and much more. That is why location plays a major role.

Recognitions and reviews:

We always have a change in plans, and a hotel without a cancellation policy or a return policy might not work.
