Travelers are tired of cookie-cutter hotels.
They want something that’s beautifully designed and unique
with all the comforts of home. Lifestyle hotels put the fun back
in travel, and they do it at nightly rates that greatly appeal to
today’s cost-conscious travelers. I see continued growth for the
segment with a lot of exciting new designs and rich lifestyle
amenities that make luxury affordable. Lifestyle hotels will
become the next generation hotel of choice.
What do you think? The article's author, Fran Kiradjian, founder of the Boutique & Lifestyle Lodging Association, stands 100% by this claim and offers lots of evidence, including the launch of three boutique brands this year alone.
