By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

NEW YORK– The new Four and Five star award winners for the 2010 Forbes Travel Guide were unveiled recently here, the first edition of the former Mobil Travel Guide awards since the brand transfer from Mobil to Forbes was announced this fall.

The list features numerous hotels that are part of Elite Traveler’s annual 101 Top Suites List.

Among the hotels on the Forbes, nee Mobile list that have also been selected by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine: The Broadmoor, located in Colorado Springs, CO, continues to make history, achieving this elite level of excellence for the 50th consecutive year.

New to the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel list are five exceptional properties situated in destinations around the world. This year’s additions bring the total number of Forbes Five-Star hotels to 54. New Forbes Five-Star Hotels include: Altira Macau, Macau, China; Montage Beverly Hills, Beverly Hills, CA; Four Seasons Hualalai at Historic Ka’upulehu, Kailua-Kona, HI; Tower Suites at Encore, Las Vegas, NV; The Peninsula New York, New York, NY. New York City’s latest addition brings its total number of Five Star hotels to six, maintaining the city’s title as the leading Forbes Five-Star hotel city in the world.

“We’re thrilled to have our brand join Forbes. The 2010 edition is the first under the Forbes Travel Guide banner and we look forward to a long and successful partnership with Forbes,” said Shane O’Flaherty, President and CEO of Forbes Travel Guide, who noted that while the hospitality industry has been challenged this year, it has risen to the occasion. “With an unprecedented downturn in the economy this year, properties have taken steps to refine their processes to become more efficient. Yet, it is important to note that the employees of these same properties have remained as engaged and passionate as ever about providing the best guest experience that they can.”
