Best Boutique Hotels
in the World
Stylish Hotel Stays Across the Globe
Ever since Ian Schrager (former co-owner of Studio 54) and Steve Rubell opened New York City's Morgans hotel and coined the term "boutique hotel" back in 1984, such properties have stood for individualized style, personalized service and exclusivity — so much so that many global chains are getting into the game, creating their own boutique brands. Now that such lodgings are ubiquitous, competition for a place at the top is stiff. For this reason, we have crafted a list of GAYOT's Top 10 Boutique Hotels in the World. From Bangkok to Puerto Rico, this collection eschews the cookie cutter experience for designer originality in some of the most appealing destinations on the planet.
