Piedmont hotels to receive a sixth star ranking for Expo 2015

In preparation of Expo 2015, to make the hospitality offer of the region more competitive, Piedmont is getting ready to introduce a new six-star level for facilities that rank among the best in the world. 

This was announced by councillor for Tourism, Alberto Cirio, during a presentation of the International Participants Meeting (IPM) - EXPO 2015, the event that gathers countries taking part in the Universal Exposition, scheduled to be held from 2-4 October in Lingotto di Torino.

“We are working towards the introduction of a six-star level in the ranking of our hotel facilities. We know that national regulations stop at the 5-star luxury level, but we want to give additional certification to hotels committed to scale, ensuring the ultimate in personal attention, because we are focusing on making our hospitality offer even more competitive for international guests travelling to Italy for the Expo”, explained councillor Cirio. 

“The sixth star, continued the councillor, will not only serve as an opportunity for the eight five-stars already present in the region, but for all facilities that wish to invest in their growth and quality levels.”

At present, Piedmont boasts five, 5-star level hotels, the Hotel Castello dal Pozzo in Oleggio Castello in the province of  Novara, the Principi di Piemonte in Turin, the Relais del Castello di Oviglio in the province of Alessandria, the Relais San Maurizio in Santo Stefano Belbo in the province of Cuneo and Villa Aminta in Stresa on Lake Maggiore; and three are 5-star luxury facilities: the Golden Palace in Turin, the Grand Hotel Des Iles Borromees in Stresa and the Boscareto Resort in Serralunga d’Alba, Cuneo.

Thanks to its proximity to Milan, according to several estimates, Piedmont is slated to attract at least three of the  twenty million visitors who will be attending the event, resulting in an estimated economic outcome for the region of some one billion euros, in addition to the expected impact on image and related industries.
