Not any more its not.

I knew someone who worked there when it was a 5* job. Whether true or not he told me that a 5* hotel, or at least the Ariel, never brings round the cake trolley with a slice missing so when a diner had selected a slice the remainder of that cake was thrown away and a new whole one replaced it.

Well, yes, more than likely.

I was reading up on that 7* hotel in Dubai the other day. I'll bet that is expensive.

I am so confused what the different star ratings mean nowadays. I believe some organisation such as the AA used to award star rating, but now it seems a free-for-all.

I stayed in a so-called 5* hotel a fortnight ago (special celebration!). It was really nice (but hideously expensive with a glass of Savignon Blanc at nearly £11!!!) but the room lacked features I would expect for a luxury hotel such as a fridge & air con.

Next week I am staying in an unrated hotel in Belfast (for work). I have been there before. It has air con and a fridge and is a much smarter room, plus drinks are reasonably priced - yet the hotel is 0* rated ????

That's a good point. I've no idea how star ratings are decided. Shall have to look it up.

I learnt the hard way that when visiting New York never go below 4star, even then be careful!
