5* Hotel Rating Controversy

Dubai HotelList of the Various hotel rating and reviewing agencies.

Ratings of 5 star hotels are often steeped in controversy, this is because there is no single agency which hands out these ratings and no unified system exists with which to ascertain how all the hotels boasting 5 star classification are ranked.

Some establishments even go as far as claiming 6 and seven stars such as the Burj-Al-Arab in Dubai.

One rating which offers some form of standardized classification is the AAA otherwise known as the American Automobile Association which uses diamonds instead of stars to rate different establishments offering various levels of accommodation.

The association also has a number of International affiliates which are tasked with maintaining the ideals of the parent association and determining the classification of various hotels within their jurisdiction.
