The Peninsula gets five stars across the globe
In an unprecedented feat, all ten properties of The Peninsula across the globe has earned a five-star from the recently released 2019 Forbes Travel Guide (FTG).
“FTG is delighted to celebrate The Peninsula Hotels as the first luxury hotel brand to receive Five-Star ratings across every hotel in its portfolio – it’s the first time in the 61-year history of the ratings that a brand has achieved this,” added Boyen. “The Peninsula Hotels stood out from what can only be described as an incredible list of prestigious properties this year. It’s a remarkable feat – the epitome of luxury service.”
The Peninsula Manila had risen from receiving four stars in 2018 to its current five this year. Peter Borer, Chief Operating Officer of The Hongkong and Shanghai Hotels, Limited, which operates The Peninsula group attributes this international success to the immense amount of hard work from colleagues across the ten hotels. In recognition of the employees of The Peninsula, the group will provide teams at each hotel a range of rewards over a five-day perios including complimentary massages, Afternoon Tea experiences, and special menus.
For guests of The Peninsula Hotels, it will offer guests a special reward. Between 27 February to 31 May 2019, guests can enjoy the best available rate, flexible check-in and check-out, an upgrade to the next available room category based on availability, and a dining or spa credit subject to certain terms and conditions.
