Boutique Hotels: A Library Of Different Stories

When was the last time you went to a library? 

I’m guessing your answer will be “a while ago” or “I can’t even remember”, especially since we live in such a technological world nowadays. The reason why I’m asking you this question is because when I go to a library, I feel instantly overwhelmed with excitement thinking about all the different stories that this place holds.

I love to look around and see how each book is carefully placed in a section that corresponds to that book’s content.

That way it’s easier to find for people looking for exactly what that book has to offer.

Well, the same thing happens with boutique hotels around the world. 

See, a boutique hotel is a reflection of the culture around you. It’s a chance to tell their story differently, in a more personalized and unique way.

And whether or not you’ve heard the term “boutique hotel”, let me explain the concept.

A boutique hotel is a type of hotel that feels small, intimate, and quaint. It typically has less than 100 rooms and offers guests an ultra-personal service. Unlike most other bigger hotel brands, a boutique hotel stays true to the local culture.

The keywords you can take away from this concept are intimate and ultra-personal service.

The reason why they best describe what a boutique hotel is, it’s because each boutique hotel is like a book placed in a library. It has a genre of its own, depending on the time, location, and culture that it holds.

Choosing to stay at a boutique hotel is allowing yourself to emerge more deeply into a story of its own. Your experience will end up being much more personable and customized than when you stayed at a bigger hotel chain.

Now, just as in a library, there are different categories where we can find books, there are many different categories for boutique hotels as well.

Can you imagine naming all the different book categories in the world? They’re countless! 

The same thing happens with boutique hotels, but let’s go over four types of boutique hotels to paint you a bigger picture.

Boutique City Hotel 

This type of hotel, as the name states itself, you will be able to find it in any big city. You can easily spot them because they will usually have less than 100 rooms, each boutique hotel will have its own theme (whether it’s historic, culinary-focused, or based around a book or a specific character), they will have a distinct style, and the service will be top-notch.

Boutique Resort Hotel 

Finding a boutique resort hotel will feel like finding a treasure you don’t want to leave. This is the kind of hotel that will usually have different dining facilities on the property, as well as amenities, and different types of entertainment centers.

You won’t even have to leave the hotel to get dinner or drive to the beach. This type of hotel will allow you to enjoy everything on its property.

Boutique Luxury Hotel 

Think about what luxury means to you. A fine dining restaurant, extraordinary service, the latest technology, and quality amenities might be part of your list.

Well, in a boutique luxury hotel, all of those characteristics combine with the strong and unique personality of the boutique hotel.

Most of these hotels will be pet friendly, will feel petite but intimate, and will make you feel as if you’re the only guest on the property: pampered and taken care of at all times.

Boutique Budget Hotel (Hostel)

Even if you’ve never stayed in a hostel before, you probably know that hostels are a type of shared accommodation that helps your travel budget go further. But what you may not know is that the uniquely social nature of hostels will transform your trip.

In a nutshell, a hostel is a budget-friendly type of accommodation that focuses on a shared social experience. One of the best things about hostels is that you get to meet people so many different kinds of people from all over the world. You never know who you’ll meet while staying in a hostel, which adds an element of excitement that’s hard to get if you’re holed up on your own in a hotel room.

If you’re the kind of person who loves adventure and meeting new people on each trip you make, hostels might be a great fit for you!

Choose your favorite boutique hotel and get to know their story.

At the end of the day, the kind of boutique hotel you choose will align the best with your personality and the kind of trip that you’re embarking on.

Just as in libraries, there are plenty of options to choose from and there’s a book that will capture you once you give it a chance.

Choosing to stay at a boutique hotel is the opportunity to make a more meaningful connection not only to the place you’re visiting but also to the people around you. It will give you a better understanding as to why each place has a different story to tell.

Boutique hotels are a library of different stories.

Take the chance, and dive into the one that calls you the most!
