What is a Hotel Boutique Hotel?
Business dictionary defines “Boutique” as a small firm that provides a limited range of very specialized goods or services, often at premium prices.
This concept emerged in the 80´s in New York City trying to fill the gap left by large hotel chains and its inflexible standards. In Contrast, the Boutique Hotels seeks its own style and personality.
The original idea came from Ian Schrager, an American businessman and the first Boutique Hotel, recognized as such, was the “Morgans Hotel” located in Madison Avenue in the metropolis of New York City.
“Morgans Hotel” began as the Hotel Duane, a 1927 structure intended for long-term residents, designed by the architect Andrew J. Thomas. According to an article of the era, “In design the exterior of the building indicates a free interpretation of the Italian Romanesque style harmonizing very well with the Fraternity Clubs building at the north, designed in a similar style.” When initially opened, the lobby and guest rooms showed “a rather free interpretation of Spanish Renaissance decoration.”
The appearance of the first Boutique Hotel, in the mid-1980s, started to revolutionize the concept of Hotels in the United States and in the world. Their definitive expansion occurred in the late 90`s.
Some of the features that define Boutique Hotels are:
- Small in size, abundant luxury and comfort, few rooms with the purpose of making guests feel at home.
