5 Characteristics that Make Boutique Hotels What They Are - What to Know

Boutique hotels aren’t as well known as massive chain hotels, but they are full of character and will surprise you at every corner. If you’re wondering why a growing number of people are choosing boutique hotels for their travels, you’ve come to the right place. Keep on reading to find out more about the characteristics that make boutique hotels the best place to stay!

1. Small and cozy

A boutique hotel is usually much bigger than a B&B but still smaller than a typical hotel. Yet, it offers a personalized experience to every individual staying there. The staff will know you by name and treat you as an individual, rather than just another customer. Some visitors describe boutique hotels as a funky mix of character and relaxation. It can be hard to describe, but that's the fun of boutique hotels! You can join in on large groups partying away or wander away to a peaceful corner by yourself.

2. Set in the best spots

Whichever boutique hotel you go to, you can be confident that the environment around it is utterly beautiful. Do you want to be by the ocean, or perhaps surrounded by vibrant trees? There's a boutique hotel for that! Save yourself the dreary sight of rows of buildings where chain hotels are usually located. Instead, treat your senses to the beautiful surroundings by booking a room at a boutique hotel.

3. Independent and unique

Boutique hotels aren't part of a group or a chain of hotels. Because of this, each one has a distinct character that separates them from the rest. If you've been to a hotel that's part of some worldwide company, you can expect the same environment and aura from said hotels. If you're looking for a unique experience starting from your accommodation, you can have one at a boutique hotel! Since each boutique hotel is unique from the other, you'll always find something new when trying out different places.

4. One-of-a-kind rooms

The rooms in chain hotels are similar if not exactly the same to one another, only differing in size and a few other aspects. In a boutique hotel, however, the rooms are filled with personality, and are created and designed with love and care, only made different by the designer's personal touch! The moment you walk into the room, you'll feel as if the room was made with just you in mind.

5. Close to the locals

A boutique hotel screams local in every way. From the moment you arrive, you can immediately tell that you're here to experience what the locals have to offer. It starts from their food, filled with local delicacies and specialties to be found nowhere else in the world (to be as good and tasty). Even the staff working in the hotel are local (and proud ones, too!) and will assist you in making sure that you will have the best experience during your stay.

With the above characteristics that differentiate a boutique hotel from a regular hotel, consider booking one right away for your next vacation. We guarantee you that once you've tried it once, you’ll look forward to trying it again in the future!
