Forbes Travel Guide (“FTG”), the world-renowned and only global rating system for luxury hotels, restaurants and spas, today unveiled its Verified List for 2019’s World’s Best Hotel Bars, naming The Bar at The Peninsula Manila as one of only 45 bars around the world to earn the accolade. This comes on the heels of the Forbes Five-Star Awards announcement in February 2019, in which The Peninsula achieved Forbes Five-Star status across all ten of its hotels, resulting in The Peninsula Hotels being the first and only hotel brand to achieve the highest possible FTG rating for all its hotels.
When Forbes Travel Guide – the gold standard in the international hospitality industry since 1958 – put out its full list of winners for 2019 the opening paragraph read, “The Peninsula Manila earned its first Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star award. Most years, that would be a headline-making achievement on its own. But in 2019, the news is merely a fabulous footnote to an even bigger story: with the Philippine property receiving hospitality’s highest distinction, that means all 10 Peninsula hotels around the globe hold Five Stars. In Forbes Travel Guide’s 61-year history, this marks the first time a brand swept the Five-Star category across all of its hotels.”
Forbes Travel Guide (FTG) today unveiled its annual Star Rating list, which revealed that The Peninsula Hotels had achieved Five-Star status across all ten of its properties. The announcement results in The Peninsula Hotels being the first and only hotel brand to achieve the highest possible FTG rating for all its hotels.
