Best Boutique Hotel Chains 2017

Boutique hotel chains offer a way to break out of the typical dull hotel-room routine. We compared 10 popular boutique brands for this year’s Editors’ Choice awards. Read on to find out more about our semi-finalists, three finalists, and the winner.

Best Boutique Hotel Chains: The Methodology

To determine the best boutique hotel chains, we started with a broad list of boutique hotel chains big and small that had not only unique and trendy properties, but also a presence across many popular locations, special amenities and rewards, and positive reviews on TripAdvisor. We weighed the unique overall experience, loyalty program membership, and value in terms of add-ons, style, and property locations.
