What is a Boutique Hotel?
Unlike the open-to-interpretation meaning of luxury hotel, the definition of boutique hotel is quite clear. Here are some elements that distinguish a boutique hotel.
First and foremost, a boutique hotel is small.
Most hospitality pros agree that for a property to be considered a boutique hotel, it should not be much bigger than 100 rooms. But not too small: if it doesn’t have at least 10 rooms, it’s not a boutique hotel but a B&B or inn.
A boutique hotel’s intimate size produces its characteristic personal feeling and heady ambiance. Some luxury travelers enjoy the compact size and enveloping atmosphere of a boutique hotel. Others prefer feeling like observers in a big, busy grand hotel.
