You prefer originality over grandeur, high-concept design over ho-hum layouts and hip personality over the blasé. In short, you won’t settle for just a place to hang your hat. It’s all about the little things, and in today’s assortment of boutique-style hotels, no details are spared–which means you get everything from high thread-count bed linens and plush towels to hi-tech gadgets and rainfall showerheads.
For the last decade, chic new hotels have been sprouting up in cities across North America–hotels that make you feel like a VIP while still keeping you on budget. Think casual luxury blended with intimate, individualized service. You won’t find a closet-sized gym with an ancient treadmill; instead it’s spas and yoga kits. Onsite restaurants and lounges are more than fast food; they’re destinations in themselves. In many cases, pets are welcome and special programs are offered for kids, too.
