The MICHELIN Guide is a benchmark in gastronomy. With a new hotel selection created by Tablet Hotels, it’s setting the same standard for hotels.
Take a glance at the MICHELIN Guide website or apps today and you’ll notice that hotels have a prominent new position, equal to restaurants. They have refreshed their approach to hotels, reinforcing their historical commitment to highlighting only the best experiences — and with Tablet Hotels.
Acquired in 2018, Tablet is the official hotel selection of the MICHELIN Guide, and the most trusted way to book hotels online.
For more than two decades the experts at Tablet have scoured the earth to find the world’s most exciting hotels — places that stand out for their style, service, and personality. Places where guests get a memorable experience, regardless of price. Following the acquisition, Tablet experts added the most exceptional hotels featured in the MICHELIN Guide to their selection, creating a single, authoritative list that covers the globe. The MICHELIN Guide hotel selection now goes where it has to. Wherever there’s an extraordinary hotel, they are there are there.
The hotels can be discovered via the official Michelin website and mobile apps.
Verified guests who book hotels through Tablet can share their feedback to help in the evaluation process of the Michelin Guide. Based on the reviews, hotels can be removed if the ratings are unsatisfactory.
Michelin Guide stresses on the style, service and personality of the hotels when it comes to selecting them, which helps travellers find the best places to stay irrespective of the price. The criteria comprise interior design, architecture, authenticity, quality of service and the hotel’s significance as a destination.
The system, according to Michelin, makes the recommendations “worthy of its users’ trust.”
While the restaurants’ selection covers more than 35 destinations, the hotel selection extends to over 120 countries.
Gwendal Poullennec, International Director of Michelin Guides, said, “By making our hotel selection even more rigorous and focusing only on the strongest, most unique and most memorable experiences, the MICHELIN Guide aims to bring the know-how and expertise of its teams to travellers and gourmets around the world.”
Lucy Lieberman, CEO of Tablet Hotels, said, “Today, as the hotel experts at the MICHELIN Guide, we are committed to the same ambition as the Guide’s restaurant selection: showing travellers only places that are worth their time — place that will contribute something meaningful to their journey.”
“And, like we do for restaurateurs, we are pleased that our selection will shine a light on the talent, expertise and personality of passionate hoteliers who help make the world’s great destinations so eternally attractive,” Lieberman added.
Underlining the impact of the pandemic on the tourism sector, Michelin Guide said in its statement that it is “committed to actively promoting the industry and meeting the expectations of travellers and gourmets who are more eager than ever to enjoy authentic culinary experiences and unforgettable getaways.
