Dubai to revamp hotel rating standards

06 May 2010

(MENAFN) Dubai?s Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM) said in a statement that it will revise the star-rating system for classifying hotels in the emirate as some properties require more than the traditional five stars, Gulf news reported.

Dubai’s tourism licensing body affirmed that it will rate hotels and serviced apartments under a new classification system from this year-end. The new system will include a three-tier, five-star rating to differentiate the ultra-luxury properties.

Under the new ratings, five-star hotels will have three categories: platinum, gold and silver. The selection criteria for other hotel categories, ranging from four to one star, have also been overhauled.

The hotel apartments will now be rated in three categories instead of two: basic, standard and deluxe.
