All the stars came out for four Miami-Dade hotels when the Forbes Travel Guide released its 57th list of some of the world’s top hotels Wednesday.
Florida had a total of six five-star hotels; the other two were in Palm Beach and Naples. Overall, there were 115 top-rated hotels worldwide this year.
The Mandarin Oriental, Miami again pulled off a triple, earning five stars for the hotel as well as its restaurant, Azul, and spa. The spas at the Acqualina and St. Regis also received five stars.
Never miss a local story.
Only one other Miami restaurant got five-star status: Naoe, the high-end sushi spot on Brickell Key.
Miami hotels returned to the list published by Forbes Travel Guide, formerly the Mobile Travel Guide, in 2013 after being absent for more than a decade. That year, the Mandarin Oriental and Acqualina both received top honors; the St. Regis Bal Harbour joined them in 2014.
