In some countries (think Ecuador) it seems it's the hotel owner himself that assign stars. The rating tends to be rather high. Other hotels don't rate themselves at all, thinking it's not their job. How should we tag hotels if there is no official rating? I suggest we use the Hotelstars rating from the Wikipedia page (see stars=*). However, I've never seen the Superior flag in use, and there's no tag for it in openstreetmap. I suggest use the rating without the S flag.
There is a nice proposal that is able to deal with all kind of ratings (be it stars or diamonds or whatever) also in parallel: Proposed features/Awards and ratings. This system proposes award:hotelstars=* for the European Hotelstar system.
