An old hand and a relative newcomer in Las Vegas earned top rankings in the Forbes Travel Guide five-star rankings released Monday.
Hotelier Steve Wynn's two Las Vegas resorts, Wynn and Encore, garnered five stars--the top honor--in hotel (for their Tower Suites) and spa categories. Wynn’s Macau properties, which carry the same names, were also on the list of five-star winners from Forbes, the former Mobil Travel Guides.
Aria Sky Suites is a newcomer to the five-star hotel list this year. That list also includes the Mandarin Oriental (which also won five stars for its restaurant and its spa) and Skylofts at MGM Grand.
The five-star honorees in the spa category in Nevada remain the same. The Four Seasons and Mandarin Oriental, along with Wynn and Encore, enjoy five-star status.
