Boutique Hotel Resort Trends

May 19, 2008
There are different choices of hotels on offer for todays travellers. For one you could sample a chain hotel or experience one of the new boutique hotel trends. A boutique just like a chain, usually has different suites on offer. People usually think only hotels like The Ramada or The Holiday Inn define a hotel experience.

Right, so you can choose to stay in an inn such as The Holladay house which you can find in Virginia. Or perhaps you would like to stay at a well known brand chain hotel. But there is another type of hotel hovering just below the radar. If you want something that has the relaxed atmosphere of a homely bed and breakfast, and the amenities of a big hotel, then you could choose a stay at a boutique hotel.

With the emergence of budget hotel availability, boutique hotels bookings have flucuated. Many offer quality that a chain cannot match. The atmosphere is relaxed, and many boutiques are located in antique buildings, thus embellishing them with a feeling of quality. When analysing boutique hotel resort trends you will notice many boutiques in New Orleans have once been older historic homes. They have been modernised, but still have the look and feel of a 19th Century house. Local culture, fashions and arts along with the decor really make staying at a one quite an experience.

The resort surroundings of boutique hotels can be incorporated into the theme. Santa Fe has a boutique that displays a lot of culture associated with Native American Indians. The Anasazi Inn displays handmade rugs, pottery and throws.

Some boutiques decide to choose a page from history to reflect the theme of the hotel. As mentioned above New Orlean boutiques' choose a 19th Century template. The Hotel Union Square boutique in San Francisco uses the Prohibition era to display it's theme. Except of course that alcohol is served legally of couse, and not in shebeens.

These kinds of hotels are not limited to the United States. In fact, there are several in cities around the world including but not limited to: Paris, Istanbul, Cannes and even Seville. Each boutique hotel has something to offers its guests. If you like the idea of opening a boutique, finances are readily available to entrepreneurs and business groups from boutique hotel lenders.

Boutiques on average have about 25-50 rooms. You can also find some with 8 rooms and also others with over 150. They generaly are much smaller than chain hotels. This enables the staff to offer a higher level of customer service to its guests.

Book well in advance if you have your eye on a particular boutique hotel. Rooms are limited to begin with. All the gems naturally get picked out first, though you should be able to get an agreeable boutique. Things like business conferences can block book out almost every hotel in a city.

Some Boutique hotels constantly upgrade the features of the hotel. It's not a build once set forever approach, but an ongoing improvement strategy. Don't worry the features are merely upgraded luxuries, so you won't see or hear any major construction works. Many rooms have access to wi-fi internet, and come with a private bath. Those on business trips can book a meeting room. Larger boutiqe hotels have spa's, fitness suites and swimming pools. Just like at larger chain hotels, restaurants and bars are available on site for guests to enjoy.

Why not choose a boutique hotel when on business or vacation? After all you've probably had the same experience each time you've stayed at a chain hotel. The higher price is definetely worth it. The quality of service and hotel quality is extremely appealing. if you want something more than the bog standard, boutique hotels will provide that and much more.
