The Grand Del Mar named San Diego’s first Forbes Five-Star Hotel

Marking an unprecedented coup for San Diego’s hospitality industry, The Grand Del Mar has achieved a Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star award, making it the first and only hotel in San Diego to ever attain Five Stars and the only property in California to earn three 2012 Five-Star awards for Lodging, Spa and Dining. The Five-Star Lodging award places the resort in the elite company of only 57 high-end hotels and resorts throughout the world to hold this designation.

Receiving these prestigious recognitions from the Forbes Travel Guide (formerly Mobil Travel Guide), which has defined the industry’s highest standard for excellence in hospitality for over 50 years, is testament to the continuing mission of The Grand Del Mar to raise the bar for luxury and quality in the region. It is now one of just five properties in the nation with three Forbes Five-Star awards. Other U.S. properties include The Cloister at Sea Island in Georgia; Mandarin Oriental, Las Vegas; The Umstead Hotel & Spa in North Carolina; and The Broadmoor in Colorado.

The 2012 Forbes Five-Star recognition marks the second year that The Spa at The Grand Del Mar — a masterfully designed 21,000-square-foot, Renaissance-inspired resort showpiece – has received the award; and it is the third year that its highly acclaimed signature dining venue, Addison, has earned the coveted Five-Star designation. There are just 30 spas and 25 restaurants in the U.S. with these ratings.

Additionally, The Grand Del Mar retained its AAA Five Diamond hotel rating for the third straight year, while Addison has earned the AAA Five Diamond distinction for the fourth consecutive year.
