Why Boutique Hotels?

Big chain hotels are great and all, but boutique hotels offer you a more intimate and personal stay. These hotels think of their guests as more than just another guest. They care about your individual experience from check in to check out, and offer fun and cool amenities you actually care about. They also provide fun spaces for travelers to hang out at, making the experiences more memorable.

Pro Tip: Boutique hotels are typically located right in the heart of a major city, making it easy to get to all the city’s main attractions.

Here are a few unique hotel brands you’ll definitely have to try!
