LAS VEGAS, Feb. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- For the fourth consecutive year, the M Resort Spa Casino was honored with a Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star Rating, furthering its place as one of the world's premier resorts with truly exceptional service and amenities. The resort's 23,000 square foot spa, Spa Mio, also received Four-Star recognition for the third year in a row.
The Forbes accolades come on the heels of receiving 2013 Four-Diamond recognition from AAA and being ranked No. 7 out of 473 hotels in Las Vegas on U.S. News & World Report's list of Best Las Vegas Hotels.
"These outstanding achievements would not have been possible without the dedication of our team members," said Anthony A. Marnell, III, President of the M Resort. "Each day they deliver an exceptional guest experience and these accolades are a true testament of their hard work and commitment to our core values and to our guests."
The 390-room resort opened in March 2009 and caters to out-of-town guests and Las Vegas locals. The resort has already earned numerous accolades including the coveted titles of "Best Buffet in Las Vegas" and "Best Locals Hotel" from the city's daily newspaper. The property was also recognized as having the most innovative slot floor and was named one of the Top 10 U.S. Relaxation/Spa Hotels by travel website TripAdvisor®.
Forbes Travel Guide has defined the standard of excellence in hotel, restaurant and spa experiences since 1958. The rigorous rating process begins with a facility inspection that considers every aspect of the property, including its overall cleanliness, condition and location. To achieve Forbes Travel Guide Four and Five Star status, properties must meet or exceed the bar-setting service standards, which are determined through an unannounced, undercover service evaluation conducted by Forbes Travel Guide's expert inspectors.
