i just really think the current star rating is so inappropriate since it gives too much credit to bad hotels, and not enough credit to good hotels.
From my understanding hotels can basically rate themselves as whatever they want to be. I mean, who's gonna tell them they can't be seven stars? But this whole "six and seven" star hotel nonsense has gone too far. It's like the scene from Spinal Tap where he talks about "turning it up to eleven".
