5 Reasons to Stay at a Boutique Hotel
Few months ago, I was looking at hotels in Goa. After scanning through various properties, I chose a boutique hotel, The Cape Goa. And believe me, I have become a boutique hotel convert and would prefer them over regular or large chain hotels, anytime. As a frequent traveler, for me a hotel room isn’t just to freshen up and rest for a few hours, but is much more than that. Boutique hotels truly offer rich traveling experience. And if you look at reviews on various websites, you will notice that boutique hotels always have superior reviews. But, what is a boutique hotel and how is it different from any other hotel.
According to the definition by USA Today, “Boutique hotels are characterized by their intimate atmosphere and idiosyncratic style. They distinguish themselves from larger chain hotels by offering personalized attention and styled accommodations which play on a motif.”
If you’re looking for a hotel for your vacation or a business trip, here are 5 reasons to choose a boutique hotel.
1. Wow Factor
Everything about a boutique hotel will impress and dazzle you. The architecture, design, décor is unique and may be quirky or chic, modern or contemporary or historic or plain homely. Everything is unique and luxurious and will truly delight and surprise you.
2. Signature Dining
Food is love and life for all of us. And a boutique hotel invariably has an outstanding restaurant that draws the local crowds too.
3. Personalized Service
At a boutique hotel, you’re not just another guest. Since, there are only 5-50 rooms on an average, you can be assured of not just amazing customer service but amazing personalized customer service. They believe in tailoring to your personal preferences and you always feel like you are a special guest.
4. Pet Friendly
It can be hard to leave the four-legged family member behind when you go on a holiday. But not anymore. Unlike traditional hotels, boutique hotels have fewer restrictions and rules and they welcome pets with open arms. Some even provide doggy beds, so that the entire family can have a comfortable stay.
5. No Two Stays Are the Same
Each boutique hotel offers unique experiences and services. With warm and personalized services, you will be buzzing with exclusive experiences. Even in one boutique hotels, different rooms have radically different aesthetics and arrangements, so you may return back to the same hotel and discover something that you hadn’t experienced before.

There ar boutique hotels and boutique hotels. The ones in Europe are particularly tacky and boutique is just a fancy way of saying that. I am quite wary of them in fact

These are some cute hotels. I’ve never heard of a botique hotel maybe we call them something different here. I love smaller places because it seems like the owner(s) take better care of it.

I really like the idea that the Boutique Hotels walk an extra mile to make their customers comfortable and also provide them personal attention for establishing their name in this hospitality business.

I have never stayed in a boutique hotel. Didn’t realise it offers such a unique experience. If not for anything I will go there for food. Always looking for a different dining experience.Hopefully they are not too expensive and are affordable.
