"We are honored to be recognized in the ranking of the World's Most Luxurious Hotels," said Eric Trump, Executive Vice President of the Trump Organization. "We truly have the best properties in the finest locations with exceptional teams, and it is very rewarding to see our hotels continue to garner yet another amazing accolade."

Opened in September 2016, Trump International Hotel Washington, D.C. features a central location, iconic and memorable design, and unparalleled levels of service. In addition to the World's Most Luxury Hotels by Forbes Travel Guide, the hotel was awarded the 2018 Forbes Five-Star recognition, making it the first hotel to receive the prestigious distinction in downtown Washington D.C.

One of the tallest buildings in Vancouver and a landmark of the city, Trump International Hotel and Tower Vancouver brought a new level of luxury to the area upon its opening in February 2017. Each of the guest rooms and suites feature panoramic views through floor-to-ceiling windows, with no two sights alike. The property was also amongst five Trump Hotels properties to receive a 2018 Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Hotel award, a tremendous honor shortly after opening.

"Exceptional service, iconic destinations and luxury amenities are hallmarks of our brand, and this achievement is a true testament to our 'Never Settle' philosophy and dedicated hotel teams," said Trump Hotels Chief Executive Officer Eric Danziger.

The Most Luxurious winners are the top performers in the specific standards that reflect detailed attention to the level of sumptuous comfort, as well as luxurious choices and conveniences afforded to guests.

Fifty-eight hotels in 17 countries earned the coveted designation, representing the top 6 percent of 1,017 Star Rated hotels in performance on standards related to luxury. And 30 spas in six countries won awards, out of 269 Star Rated spas worldwide.

"We are pleased to recognize the 2018 Most Luxurious Hotels and Spas in our debut Verified Lists," said Amanda Frasier, Forbes Travel Guide's Executive Vice President - Ratings.
