What Exactly Is A Boutique Hotel
Boutique Hotels are small hotels, generally about 10 to 100 rooms, that are stylish and trendy in their design. Typically boutique hotels have some sort of historic element or unique aesthetic charm to them and are usually located in urban areas.
The key to a good boutique hotel, what makes it stand out - particularly in Sydney - is an attentive and personal team of hotel staff. The larger the hotel, the larger the hotel staff and the less personal the team can be to your individual needs. At smaller boutique hotels, you get the benefit of a team of hotel staff that can cater to your specific needs.
