More boutique hotels

I guess city council will allow this increase in height, too . . . and of course, tax abatements:

MORE??? Clearly you don't know what a botique hotel is. Aloft is NOT a boutique hotel; it s a CHAIN hotel aimed at a niche audience. The new proposal is a true boutique hotel.

Well, I generally stay in what I've been calling boutique hotels. Some are part of small chains, some have been a single hotel or inn. So I'd call both of these boutique hotels as they cater to travellers expecting something different from the usual Hilton, Crown Plaza or Holiday Inn decor and experience. What exactly is the difference between a chain hotel aimed at a niche audience and a true boutique hotel? Pray tell so we can all know

If you have a better definition, please share

Actually WCI Partners classifies their own hotel as a boutique hotel.

2 more hotels downtown are better than 3.

The new boutique hotel will clearly cater to lobbyists and people in politics. Rooms will most likely be in the 300s-400s.

A nod to the forward thinkers in Harrisburg!
