"The great advantage of a hotel is that it's a great refuge from home life" - George Bernard Shaw.A BOUTIQUE HOTEL is a small hotel which typically has between 10 and 100 rooms in unique settings with upscale accommodations.
Public access, past certain hours, may be restricted.
One Star - (Moderate) Usually denotes independent and name brand hotel chains with a reputation for offering consistent quality amenities.
The properties offer a high degree of personal service.
Although most five star hotels are large properties, sometimes the small independent (non-chain) property offers an elegant intimacy that can not be achieved in the larger setting.
Concierge services, fitness centers and one or more pools are often provided.
Three Star - (First Class) Typically these hotels offer more spacious accommodations that include well appointed rooms and decorated lobbies. They are often located near major expressways or business areas, convenient to shopping and moderate to high priced attractions.
The hotel is often 2 - 4 stories high and usually has a more personal atmosphere.
It's usually located near affordable attractions, major intersections and convenient to public transportation. Most will not have a restaurant on site but are usually within walking distance to some good low-priced dining.
The hotels are most often located near other hotels of the same caliber and are usually found near shopping, dining and other major attractions.
The level of service is well above average and the rooms are well lit and well furnished.
The hotel locations can vary from the very exclusive locations of a suburban area, to the heart of downtown.
