The best hotels are independent hotels.
That's not hyperbole. It's a fact.
All 1,000+ hotels were handpicked by hospitality nerds and vetted by thousands of travelers. If buzzwords didn’t nauseate us, we’d say it’s a “curated collection.” But let’s go with “obsessively-scrutinized selection.”
Basically, we do your homework for you.
(Nerd habits die hard.)
When visiting a new place, why would you stay in a chain hotel that was designed in a lab and copy-pasted across the country? These independent hotels are an inextricable part of the local scene.
Now, you can have your points and great experiences too.
These hotels are run by real people with true passion for your experience of their city. Expect intuitive service instead of scripted interactions. Expect the scoop on local hotspots, instead of glossy handouts of mainstream mediocrity.
Expect hospitality as it should be.
