Traveling has always been one of the most important parts of our lives and keeping this in mind, the hotel industry has changed the whole hotel concept very quickly in recent years. Now hotels are no longer a place where you go because you don’t have immediate accommodation in that city, but these hotels have become more than just a place to stay. These hotels now provide many other integrated services and luxuries such as restaurants, swimming pools, gyms, spas and many others.
In the last decade, the rise of boutique hotels has made a big impression on the hotel industry and continues to do so. These boutique hotels now operate in every city big or small, be it New York, London, San Francisco or anywhere in the world. This concept of boutique hotels has basically been around since the 1980s. Initially, these boutique hotels were also known as “designer” or “lifestyle” hotels. The Morgan Hotel in New York was the first to earn this “boutique hotel” label. Nowadays, everyone tries to call their hotel a boutique hotel, but generally, a boutique hotel is one that is comparatively smaller and built for the purpose of serving its personal customers rather than others. The definition of a boutique hotel according to most travel and tour agents and websites of this type is, it is a hotel that has no more than 50 rooms and the objective of this hotel is to make your stay as pleasant as possible. The explosion in the number of boutique hotels has created confusion as more and more in-house hotel owners are opening their own chain of boutique hotels. The most famous are the Starwood and resort hotels.
After the huge popularity of the Morgan hotel in New York, many boutique hotels have sprung up around the world, especially in and around cities that are tourism hotspots. Let’s take London as an example. Until some time ago, it was very difficult to find a boutique hotel there, but now boutique hotels are seen on every street, and in addition, larger hotels are also becoming a boutique hotel. These large boutique hotels are gaining more popularity there as rents are high and small boutique hotels do not operate frequently. In the last five years, many boutique hotels have gained great popularity in London and some of them are guesthouses in Notting Hill, Baglioni Hotel and Soho Hotel in Soho.
In our second example, Paris, each type of boutique hotel can promise you great success. This is probably why there is such a wide variety and number of boutique hotels to choose from. One of the oldest boutique hotels in Paris is called Montalembert and is located on the Left Bank. Hotels that have been induced as a boutique hotel recently are Hotel De Sers located on Avenue Pierre and Hotel Sezz located very close to the Eiffel Tower.
The interesting fact about boutique hotels is that North American boutique hotels are slightly larger than boutique hotels around the world and this is because the rents there are higher. But still boutique hotels are very famous in America.
It is estimated that as the tourism sector grows, the hotel industry, especially the boutique hotel industry, will also grow and also the fact that the big hoteliers have started their expression of interest in boutique hotels will help this industry to flourish. for many years.
