The recognized Forbes Travel Guide is known for its worldwide rating system of luxury hotels, restaurants, and spas.

To compile the list, Forbes Travel Guide uses an objective, independent and data-driven process. Incognito inspectors pose as everyday guests and stay at hotels, board cruises, receive spa services and dine at restaurants around the world.

According to Forbes, they “test some 900 exacting standards such as whether a room is designed to promote sleep quality or whether the food-and-beverage choices support a guest’s well-being, emphasizing exceptional service, which accounts for 70 percent of a property’s rating.”

“Newer standards focus on the guest experience, such as ensuring “cocktails are dynamically interesting and photogenic” and even asking if the inspector would “readily recommend this property to others.” The remaining 30 percent comes from the quality and condition of the facilities.”

As for Toronto, 14 hotels, spas, and restaurants received stars while 3 restaurants and 1 hotel were recommended to try:
