Hotel Star Classification in India

Hotels in India have to be classified by the tourism ministry. Hence, hoteliers in India have to apply for this star-rating system, where the committee reviews them and issues ratings ranging from one-star to five-star deluxe. The ministry has a separate classification scheme for heritage hotels. The hotels in India are rated by ‘The Hotel & Restaurant Approval & Classification Committee’ (HRACC), which is a part of the tourism ministry. This committee has two wings, one of which assesses one-to-three-star hotels while the other one assesses three-to-five-star hotels. Once the hotelier applies for their star rating, the committee responsible will visit their premises and judge them based on the facilities provided and how well their guests are served. They allot them star rating ranging from 1 star to 5 star hotels.
