Wikipedia had this to say : Boutique hotel is a term originating in North America to describe intimate, usually luxurious or quirky hotel environments. Boutique hotels differentiate themselves from larger chain/branded hotels and motels by providing personalized level accommodation and services / facilities. Sometimes known as "design hotels" or "lifestyle hotels", boutique hotels began in the 1980s in major cities like New York, London, and San Francisco. Typically boutique hotels are furnished in a themed, stylish and/or aspirational manner. The are usually considerably smaller than mainstream hotels. Boutique hotels are always individual and do not survive in corporate branding environments, so cannot exist in the large chain hotel groups.
