The inclusion comes courtesy the list compiled by Forbes Travel Guide, who send inspectors out to properties around the world to spend a couple of nights and assign the hotel a star rating, evaluating based on up to 900 objective criteria.

“Situated in the city’s Golden Mile of high-end boutiques, Trump Vancouver combines glamour and understated design to create a space that exudes quiet opulence. A muted color scheme and extensive meeting facilities bring a business-friendly air to the hotel, but this is softened by local West Coast touches, such as meeting spaces named after Vancouver neighborhoods, light woods in the rooms and locally sourced drinks in the private bar,” elaborates Forbes.
