Before I go on vacation somewhere new, I always do extensive research on hotels prior to booking my stay. I’m a huge fan of staying at smaller boutique hotels because they tend to offer a more personalized experience than the big name chains. But another reason I love boutique hotels is the décor in the rooms. Boutique hotels often have fantastically designed spaces, playing with color, texture and artwork in ways that other hotels don’t.
Hotel rooms in general have to have a great use of space – I’m always amazed at how designers layout the rooms, especially in Europe where rooms are typically smaller than in the U.S.
In this post I have compiled photos from boutique hotels in the U.S. and Europe that I find beautifully decorated and inspiring.
Do you have a favorite hotel you stay at? I would love recommendations!
