The world's best boutique hotels of 2017
The Boutique Hotel Awards recognizes trailblazing, independent hotels across the planet, and representatives from some of the world's most luxurious properties gathered at London's Merchant Taylors' Hall on November 9 for the 2017 awards.
The winners were selected from more than 600 nominees in more than 80 countries, with each entrant nominated by a committee of 70 leading travel experts.
The Boutique Hotel Awards prides itself on the personal touch. Each property is visited by a hotel judge and decisions are based on first-hand guest experience of dining and entertainment, design, facilities, location, staff service and staff emotional impact.
