Lodge Receives Distinction for Seventh Consecutive Year

PARK CITY, Utah, Jan. 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Forbes Travel Guide announced that it has again awarded Stein Eriksen Lodge and The Spa at Stein Eriksen Lodge the prestigious Forbes Five-Star award. This marks the seventh consecutive year the Lodge has been bestowed with the hospitality industry's highest honors, maintaining Stein Eriksen Lodge's position among an elite list of 97 prestigious lodging establishments in the world and Utah's only establishment to earn the distinction. It is the third year in a row The Spa has received a Five-Star standing, making it one of only 41 spas globally to achieve the award.  In addition, the Glitretind restaurant, located within Stein Eriksen Lodge, received a Four-Star award for the seventh consecutive year.

"We hold the Forbes Five-Star award with such esteem," said Russ Olsen, CEO of Stein Eriksen Lodge. "It is a much-appreciated recognition of our staff's unyielding dedication to creating exceptional travel experiences for all our guests, many of whom are among world's most discerning travelers."

For the past 31 years, Stein Eriksen Lodge, located mid-mountain at Deer Valley Resort, has established itself as a true leader in alpine hospitality and one of the most highly respected mountain resort destinations in the world. In 2003, the Lodge was the first Utah property to be recognized with the AAA Five-Diamond rating and it first received the Forbes Five-Star award in 2008. Since then, and with several nationally branded properties coming to the Park City area, Stein Eriksen Lodge has upheld its standing as the first and only Utah property to achieve this distinction. The Spa at Stein Eriksen Lodge, which underwent an extensive expansion and remodel in 2009, was established to provide guests a sanctuary to unwind after a day of outdoor activity and an oasis for receiving superlative deep therapy for overall body wellness and beautification.

"With this award, Stein Eriksen Lodge is among an exclusive group of properties capable of offering guests full assurance they will consistently benefit from uncompromising, exceptional service that is remembered long after guests depart," said Olsen, who attended the award announcement ceremony in Las Vegas, NV.

Since its inception in 1958, the Forbes Travel Guide has used an objective set of judging criteria, unique among leading travel books, which sets national standards yet allows for regional and individual preferences. A carefully selected team of hospitality experts anonymously evaluates the establishments listed in the Guide, using a proprietary ratings process based on more than 750 rigorous and standardized criteria that are evaluated and updated annually. Properties must offer a level of experience appropriate to the cost, based on the quality of such items as decor, comfort, amenities and services.
