The expression five stars refers to a classification system in which five represents the highest level and zero represents the lowest. This method of categorization, used mostly in the hotel environment and in the gradation of military ranks, has also been adopted as a symbolic system of valuation in other areas.
In hotels, for example, the stars are part of an internationalized convention according to which the best rated hotels meet a series of standards, requirements and criteria that place them at the top of their field. These types of regulations may be issued by the World Tourism Organization, through international agreements, or by the provisions of the laws of each country, to which, of course, companies operating in the tourism industry are subject.
The stars, in general, are located in a visible place, preferably at the entrance, so that it facilitates the tourist identification of the category of the hotel to which they are accessing. Of course, according to this classification, the most luxurious, comfortable and expensive hotel will always be the one with five stars.
A five-star hotel will offer, for example, the best conditions for accommodation: luxury, comfort, 24-hour personalized attention, pool area, gym, nursery service, national and international cuisine restaurant, comfortable and spacious rooms, good location , shows and live music, in addition to being conditioned to hold large-scale events, such as congresses and meetings of a commercial or political nature, etc.
However, the range of services and amenities offered by hotels is decreasing as their scale decreases.
In the military institution, the stars are used to distinguish the rank of an officer, being that the highest hierarchy is held by the one who carries the five stars and the minor who does not possess any. In general, whoever holds the five stars is at the top of the military hierarchies as commander in chief of the nation’s Army. His position has special powers and maximum responsibilities, although these vary from country to country.
