What makes a Boutique Hotel different to a normal hotel? Well, Boutique usually signifies a small, sophisticated and fashionable business or establishment and hence Boutique Hotels are simply that – a smaller more stylish hotel, sometimes thematic, usually located in a fashionable location in the city. Boutique hotels offer more intimate environments, with private and public spaces, with more artistic and design oriented vibe.
FEATURES OF A BOUTIQUE HOTEL
To cater to guests exclusively and to provide the most personal experience to travelers, boutique hotels have very intimate settings and fewer rooms. Some spectacular boutique hotels have less than 30 rooms, compared to mainstream hotels which have upto 200 keys!
People chose Boutique hotels for something different. Thus, they are usually unique in terms of the design and character. Boutique hotels are charming because they are inspired by the vibe of the city, and try to showcase the inherent qualities of the city. Scenic views, specialty services, amazing food and most importantly quirky yet suitable thematic designs set boutique hotels apart. A few boutique hotels take exclusivity so seriously, that every suite in the hotel is uniquely designed. In this way, they ensure repeat customers who loved the service, and want to experience another style of living next time they visit!
3. Design Oriented
Boutique hotels pride themselves at creating soothing exclusive environments and ambiance which is one of a kind. They usually combine interesting architecture, artistic furnishings, as well as playing through decors to create a character. What is common in all boutique hotels is that they are sophisticated, stylish and contemporary chic.
