Best Boutique Hotels in the World

Once upon a time, lodging choices could have been featured in Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Too big or too small ... there were plenty of plain budget chain motels and loads of massive over-the-top luxury hotels, but very few stylish properties in between. In a pleasant paradox, boutique hotels have become commonplace these days. Intimate, comfortable and often eccentric in the best of ways, they range from homey inns to historic hideaways. Selected for their small size and individual style, the boutique hotels on GAYOT's exclusive list ensure unique, exclusive, "just right" travel experiences around the globe.
