Are you looking forward to a world where travel and staying in hotels is once again part of the world that we live in?
The world has been in lockdown for most of 2020, and some form of social distancing seems to be part of the way we are going to have to live for the foreseeable future.
However, it is perfectly understandable that people are getting tired of the need for social distancing and are starting to look forward to the time when the free movement will be possible again.
What Is A Boutique Hotel?
Before we consider a definition of a boutique hotel like the Condor Hotel, and why it is considered one of the hotel industry’s best-kept secrets, it is essential to note the following:
While it is understandable that people are tiring of the lockdown regulations and the need for social distancing, the COVID-19 pandemic is real, and the virus spreads extremely rapidly through person-to-person transmission.
Therefore, it is essential to be aware of the need to protect yourself, your family, and other people by paying attention to your state’s lockdown or shelter-at-home regulations.
Even though this period in the world’s history seems unending, it will pass, and you will be able to travel again, visiting new places, and staying in unique or boutique hotels.
Let’s now look at the definition of a boutique hotel as proffered by Wikipedia.com:
“A boutique hotel is a small hotel which typically has between 10 and 100 roomsin settings with upscale accommodations and individualized unique selling points.”
A boutique hotel is often more luxurious than a standard hotel or motel. However, its primary benefits include unique customer service and the hotel staff’s ability to pay attention to the small details to provide a unique and sublime customer experience.
For example, boutique hotel staff will greet you by your name when you first arrive. They will remember your name and continue to greet you by name every time they see you.
These hotels are often furnished in a particular style or theme, with a theme-based upmarket bar or lounge and a modern cocktail menu and local, or regional wines. Their restaurant also focuses on providing high-quality food designed by a professional chef.
Because they are smaller than a standard hotel, there are fewer rules. Additionally, most boutique hotels tend to be pet-friendly, allowing you to travel with your pets.
A boutique hotel is often rich in the heritage of the area in which it is situated. Consequently, it is well-placed to offer pre-packaged tours or custom-designed tours of the surrounding areas.
Again, the hotel’s size is of particular benefit to its guests. If a visitor has a specific need or would like to visit a particular area, the hotel staff would either act as a local guide or hire a specialist guide to accompany the individual.
