What do hotel star rankings mean?

In the United States, star rankings are a general guide to the luxury and amenenities that a given hotel offers. These rankings are assigned by many different sources, including by the hotels themselves, and there is no nationally recognized system to ensure conformity. Still, star rankings can be useful in giving a general idea of what you can expect from a new hotel.

As a rough guide:

A 1-Star hotel provides a limited range of amenities and services and adheres to a high standard of facility-wide cleanliness.

A 2-Star hotel provides good accommodation and better equipped bedrooms, each with a telephone and attached private bathroom.

A 3-Star hotel has more spacious rooms and adds high-class decorations and furnishings and color TV. It also offers one or more bars or lounges.

A 4-Star hotel is much more comfortable, larger, provides excellent cuisine (table d'hote and a la carte), room service, and other amenities.

A 5-Star hotel offers the most luxurious premises, widest range of guest services, as well as swimming pool and sport and exercise facilities.

Star rankings in Europe are generally assigned by government agencies, based upon price and amenities offered. Again, in general, the more stars a hotel has been given the more luxurious (and expensive) it will be.
