ATLANTA (September 4, 2020) — Forbes Travel Guide (“FTG”), the only global rating system for luxury hotels, restaurants and spas, today offered a sneak peek at select winners from its upcoming 2021 annual Star Awards. MGM Grand Detroit earned a new Forbes Travel Guide four-star hotel award and will be showcased with other honorees on ForbesTravelGuide.com.


Located in downtown Detroit, MGM Grand Detroit is the city’s first and only luxury resort-style casino built from the ground up. The property features 400 chic and stylish guest rooms, signature restaurants, Michigan’s first Topgolf Swing Suite and the full-service IMMERSE spa.


“Providing guests with world-class service and amenities, while upholding our health and safety protocols, is a priority for our outstanding team here in Detroit,” said David Tsai, president Midwest Group for MGM Resorts International. “We are honored to receive this esteemed recognition which is a testament to the team’s hard work and unrelenting commitment to guest experience in any situation.”


Forbes Travel Guide, the world-renowned expert in genuine Five-Star service, announced its 2020 Star Awards in February. FTG is now adding to the prestigious award winners list by revealing some 2021 winners early to provide getaway inspiration as travel picks up post-quarantine. The early winners for 2021 were inspected prior to COVID-19 closures.


“It gives us much pleasure to recognize these deserving properties with their 2021 awards,” said Filip Boyen, Forbes Travel Guide CEO. “We hope that these excellent properties will prompt travelers to start dreaming about their next trip and build anticipation for our forthcoming full slate of awards in 2021.” 


He added, “It is difficult to earn a Forbes Travel Guide Star Rating, and all of our winners have demonstrated dedication in their passion for service. We congratulate them all on their commitment to consistently deliver excellence to guests.”
