Travel has always been one of the most important parts of our lives, and bearing in mind that the hotel industry has changed the overall concept of the hotel over the last few years. Now, hotels are no longer a place to go because there is no 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 more.
In the last decade, the rise of boutique hotels has made a huge impact on the hotel industry and still does. These boutique hotels now operate in every major or small city, be it New York, London, San Francisco or any other part of the world. This concept of boutique hotels has basically existed since the 1980s. Initially, these boutique hotels were also known as "design" or "manifest" hotels. The Morgan Hotel in New York was the first to receive this boutique hotel inscription. Now a days, everyone has been trying to call their hotel a boutikue hotel, but in general, a boutikue hotel is one that is relatively smaller and is designed to serve personal customers rather than others. The definition of a boutikue hotel according to most travel and tourism agents and websites of this type is, it is a hotel that has no more than 50 rooms, and the goal of this hotel is to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. The explosion in the number of boutique hotels has led to confusion as more and more internal hotel owners open their boutique hotel chain. The most famous hotels are in Starvood and resorts.
Following the enormous popularity of New York's Morgan Hotel, many boutique hotels have sprung up around the world, especially in cities that are hot spots in or around tourism. Let's take London as an example. It used to be very difficult to find one boutikue hotel there, but now boutique hotels are seen on every other street and moreover, larger hotels are also turning into boutique hotels. These big boutique hotels are gaining popularity there as rents are high and small boutique hotels are often out of operation. In the last five years or more, many boutique hotels have gained a lot of popularity in London, some of them Notting Hill guesthouses, Baglioni Hotel and Soho Hotel in Soho.
In our second example, Paris, any type of boutique hotel can promise you great success. Probably this is the reason why there is a large selection and quantity of boutique hotels. One of Paris's oldest boutique hotels is called Montalembert and is located on the left bank. The hotels that have recently become a boutique hotel are Hotel De Sers located on Avenue Pierre and Hotel Sezz located near the Eiffel Tower.
An interesting fact about boutique hotels is that boutique hotels in North America are slightly larger than boutique hotels around the world, due to the fact that rents are higher there. Still, boutique hotels are very famous in America.
It is estimated that the tourism sector will grow, especially the boutique hotel industry, and also the fact that large hoteliers have initiated their interest in boutique hotels will help the industry flourish for many years.
