STAR Tells the Truth:
Anyone can tell you where a hotel is located, how many rooms it has, or where a cruise ship sails. But only STAR will tell you the TRUTH about what it's like to be a guest or passenger! STAR is unique in its honest, in-depth assessment of ships and hotels. With Star, travel agents can be experts for clients, directing them to hotels and ships that fit their particular needs...and ensuring that they return again and again for more advice.
CHARINGWORTH MANOR Charingworth, England "Service here has brought some complaints; this is the kind of hotel where guests like to keep to themselves—and much of the staff does, too."
RAJVILAS Jaipur, India "An impressive attention to detail is evident throughout, with 200-kilogram brass and wood doors and the works of 50 stone carvers as examples of the builders' commitment to doing the job right here. A noted Indian fashion designer clothed the staffers, who lead guests past the entrance fountains while shading them with umbrellas."
Our travel correspondents personally visit each hotel and ship and give you their candid, no-holds-barred opinion of what's good about them…and what isn't. Their in-depth descriptions of the properties are informative and fun to read. They tell you what it's actually like to be a guest or passenger—right down to the decor in the lobby and the cleanliness of your stateroom. You'll learn just how good the staff really is. And if the clientele at that renowned Caribbean resort has changed. And how big the closets are.
BETSY ROSS HOTEL Miami Beach, Florida "The tiny reception desk cluttered with fashion magazines would not be so irksome were the staff not always leafing through the glossies. At inspection, the surly clerk showed disgust when asked to put down Elle and hand a guest a key. Such behavior is not limited to reception either."
ALVEAR PALACE HOTEL Buenos Aires, Argentina "This is the cognoscenti's choice in BA, and they are more likely to impress Argentines by choosing to stay here rather than in one of the city's many chain links."
