Mobil Travel Guide Announces the First Ever Mobil Five-Star Hotel & Resort Spa; Introducing America's Best Hotel & Resort Three- Four- and Five-Star Spas
"In our second year of rating hotel and resort spas, we are extremely pleased to honor the first Mobil Five-Star winner, Spa Montage," said Kenneth P. Cohen, vice president, public affairs, Exxon Mobil Corporation. "We are also delighted to highlight the additional 68 spas achieving 2005 star ratings."
"The spas awarded today are committed to service and have dedicated themselves to providing their guests with more than just luxurious facilities -- they provide the consumer with an oasis of calm in a fast-paced world," Cohen added.
Each of the featured spas underwent rigorous inspections similar to the process that Mobil Travel Guide has been applying to lodgings and restaurants for more than four decades. Using objective standards created to mirror the average traveler's needs and expectations, inspectors traveled to properties across the country, conducting visits without the properties' knowledge. From making reservations to selecting treatments, inspectors used the same set of standards, evaluating 450 different attributes of their experience. General evaluation criteria for each Mobil star rating level can be found at www.mobiltravelguide.com.
According to the International Spa Association's 2004 report, the spa industry is hotter than ever. In 2003, over 36 million people visited a hotel and resort spa, and hotel and resort spa revenue represented 41 percent of the total industry revenue of $11 billion.
