In 2005 at the request of my friends, and radio listeners. I launched The MrFiveStar website. The purpose is to provide you the reader a comprehensive, non revenue driven Travel site. There are dozens of sponsor driven sites and there are even more organization that restaurants, hotels and resorts pay to be members. Most all these sites serve a good purpose but are totally self serving for their clients.  We on the other hand  are the exact opposite. We are the judge and jury of what gets listed herein. There are many sites that let the reader vote or rate a property. This started out being a good idea until some of the less scrupulous property owners figured out a way to manipulate the numbers in their favor. Basically, stuffing the ballot box. We are also aware that our opinion is very subjective . We strive every day to be as forthright as possible.  Not everyone is every going to agree with how we judge properties, but so fare we are doing pretty well.  We are running well over 80% positive response.

We love to travel. We, like every one, like the finer things in life. It is our goal to present what WE think are the best properties we and our associates have visited. We generally are not critics. We will never write something bad about any property we have visited. Please keep checking back with us from time to time as we grow and provide more valuable travel information.

As you will see we provide a small number of options. We believe less is more. Less, is less confusing, more focused. Even in New York City we will never give you more than a dozen choices. However, we are sure the choices we include are stellar. These options will change from time to time as we constantly re-consider each property.

You will notice many places in this site we link to other travel sites for additional information. You will particularly see our use of Forbes Travel Guides, Gayot,  and Dirona. These are quality companies that we trust.
