Hotel Arista was named as a new Four-Star Hotel on Forbes official 2014 Forbes Travel Guide Star Rating list. Of all eight Illinois hotels that received a rating from the Forbes Travel Guide, Hotel Arista is the only recipient not located in the city of Chicago.
"Our Star Ratings recognize the finest hotels, restaurants and spas in the world," said Michael Cascone, president of Forbes Travel Guide. "These ratings serve as guideposts for consumers seeking exceptional travel experiences, and our primary mission is to serve the consumer."
Hotel Arista is the most recent addition to the luxury travel ratings list, which has served as the gold standard in the hospitality industry since 1958. The boutique hotel also received a number of honors in recent years, the most recent recognition being the first LEED certified hotel in Illinois.
