Looking for the best of the best in hotels, restaurants and spas? The annual Forbes Travel Guide Star Ratings List was released this morning, highlighting the properties around the world that hold the coveted stars.

In Massachusetts, Blantyre Resort, Boston Harbor Hotel, Four Seasons Hotel Boston, and Mandarin Oriental, Boston lead the pack of Five-Star hotels. Four-Star hotels include XV Beacon and the Ritz-Carlton Boston Common. Joining the rank of Four-Star properties this year is the Chatham Bars Inn, including its spa and restaurant.

The Forbes Travel Guide Star Awards recognize exceptional hotels, restaurants and spas around the world. This year, the list also includes Forbes Travel Guide "recommended" hotel, restaurants and spas. These are properties that haven't been given a star rating, but that "provide guests with a strong sense of location, whether through style or function," according to Forbes.
