Park Hyatt Toronto and Stillwater are awarded the 2008 Mobil Four-Star rating

    Stillwater Spa is the Only Spa in Ontario to Receive the 4-Star Rating

    TORONTO, Feb. 25 /CNW/ - Park Hyatt Toronto and Stillwater Spa were
honored with a Mobil Four-Star Award by Mobil Travel Guide, the originators of
the prestigious star rating system and providers of one of the most
comprehensive evaluation systems of hotels, restaurants and spas in the world.
Park Hyatt Toronto's rating earned them a place on Mobil Travel Guide's list
of the top properties in the United States and Canada for 2008. Park Hyatt
Toronto and Stillwater's comprehensive review by Mobil Travel Guide's
incognito experts can be found online at
    "Each day, we strive to provide our guests with a level of luxury and
satisfaction based on the 'gold standard' set by Mobil Travel Guide," said
Paul Verciglio, GM of Park Hyatt Toronto.
    This is a milestone year for Mobil Travel Guide, as they celebrate 50
years as the most trusted source in travel ratings and expert reviews, helping
to define excellence and quality in the travel industry. Since 1958, the Mobil
Travel Guide's ratings process has been based on more than 750 standardized
criteria for hotels, more than 250 for restaurants, and more recently 450
different criteria for spas, making it the most rigorous and comprehensive in
the industry. The process begins with a facility inspection that considers
every aspect of the property, including its overall cleanliness, condition and
location. To achieve Mobil Four- and Five-Star status, properties must then
meet or exceed Mobil's bar-setting service standards, which are determined
through an unannounced, undercover service evaluation conducted by Mobil
Travel Guide's expert inspectors.
    "Consumers today are inundated with an influx of consumer reviews, online
booking engine star ratings and self imposed ratings by properties. Much of
this information is conflicting in nature making it difficult for the consumer
to make an informed travel decision. For the past 50 years, Mobil Travel Guide
has been the trusted source in travel ratings and expert reviews, steering
travelers in the right direction," said Shane O'Flaherty, President and CEO
for Mobil Travel Guide. "We are thrilled to share this landmark year with
travelers across the world and look forward to another fantastic 50 years."
