If you want the best hotel, you choose to stay in a five star hotel, right? 

Well some are arguing that hotels should toss that old-fashioned star-rating system out the window. That it may not be the best way to judge a hotel anymore.

So, is it out with the old two, three, four, and five-star system and in with a new system of ratings based on user-generated online reviews?

The trend emerging now is something of a compromise, where travel websites are using both approaches -- posting traveler reviews and the traditional stars.

So, like everything, knowledge is power and the more information, the better before forking over your precious vacation money for a nice hotel.
