With the recent announcement of this year’s Michelin stars and the publication of the 2011 Michelin guides, Splendia has compiled a list of 10 of their very best hotels with Michelin starred restaurants. As an important feature of a high-end hotel, fine dining adds to the overall luxury experience.
Fiona Gillen, VP Marketing at Splendia told TravelPlus “An outstanding restaurant is often a huge pull for customers who want to ensure their stay is of the utmost luxury and comfort. At Splendia, we believe it is the whole experience at the hotel that matters, so remarkable services or unique features are an important part of our selection criteria.”
