Travelore News: Rhode Island's Ocean House Earns Triple 5 Star Rating from Forbes

The Ocean House in Watch Hill, Rhode Island becomes the 10th Hotel in the World and Fifth in the United States with the distinction of 15 Stars!

Forbes Travel Guide unveiled its annual Star Rating list, naming the luxurious Ocean House in Watch Hill, Rhode Island, as a Forbes Travel Guide 15-Star recipient with the hotel and its OH! Spa and Seasons restaurant each receiving the coveted Five-Star rating.

Ocean House is the only property to become a triple Five-Star hotel in 2015, making it the 10th hotel in the world and one of only five hotels in the United States to receive this rare distinction.

“We are thrilled and humbled to be recognized by Forbes with this prestigious honor, becoming the 10th hotel in the world to join this elite group of the best of the best,” said Daniel Hostettler, President and Group Managing Director of Ocean House Management, LLC. “This is our fifth year of operation, and I cannot think of a better way to celebrate than with Forbes Five-Star ratings for Ocean House, its world-class spa and now its farm-to-table restaurant. I’m so proud of our team and their dedication to providing the finest guest experience.”

OH! Spa earned its Five-Star designation in 2012, followed by the resort earning its own Five Stars in 2013. Seasons restaurant joined the list of 55 Five-Star restaurants worldwide for the first time this year, thus placing the property into the elite group of only 10 hotels in the world which have all three designations at the same property.

This award, which requires that each component (spa, hotel and restaurant) undergo additional visits over and above the normal annual inspection process in order to ensure consistency across all three areas, is among the highest honors in the luxury hospitality industry, and has been awarded only nine times before: four times in the United States and five times in the remainder of the world. Ocean House now becomes the fifth such property in the United States, joining prestigious hotels such as the Broadmoor in Colorado and the Grand Del Mar in California.

To celebrate this recognition, the resort is unveiling a very special “15 Stars in 2015” package* that will highlight the best of Ocean House, at a great value. Available now through April, the package aptly starts at $555 and includes:

• Deluxe King or Terrace King Accommodations
