Limousine Rentals Let You Travel in Style – SocialiteTravel.com

October 24, 2008

It used to be that limousine rentals were mainly for those celebrating their wedding day. The bride and the groom along with their wedding party would ride to the church and the reception in style. In most cases, a stretch white limousine was reserved for the day.

 

Limousine rentals aren’t just for those heading down the aisle any longer. People are choosing to rent a special set of wheels for everything from graduation day to a birthday. With the low cost of limousine rentals you can ride in style regardless of the occasion.

One popular choice for limousine rentals is in a place that you may not have considered before. Have you ever arrived at an airport in an unfamiliar city only to search endlessly for the taxi stand? Once you do find it you may be facing a long wait while other visitors who arrived first, get the first chance at the available cabs.

Instead of struggling to find a cab to take you to your hotel, you can opt to call up one of the local limousine rental companies. These companies are generally about the same cost of a cab ride and they offer you a choice in the type of car you want to be picked up in. A four door sedan may not be as flashy as a black limousine, but it might be a bit less expensive, which will make it very attractive to the budget traveler.

A really fun idea that many people are choosing is limousine rentals to take them to a local nightspot or concert. We live in an age where everyone is aware of how dangerous it is to drink and drive. If you are heading out one evening with a group of friends, instead of arranging for a designated driver, think about a limousine rental. With everyone chipping in, the cost will remain low and you’ll also be able to enjoy the fun of arriving at your destination in a limousine. You also won’t have to worry about how you’ll get home, if you arrange beforehand for your driver to pick you up at a certain time.

Regardless of why you choose limousine rentals, one thing is clear. A limousine speaks of class and sophistication. With many limousine rental companies offering discounted rates and specials for repeat customers, you can go from point A to point B in a stylish set of wheels without breaking the bank.

Boutique Hotels – SocialiteTravel.com

October 15, 2008

Boutique hotel is a term popularised in North America and the United Kingdom to describe intimate, usually luxurious or quirky hotel environments. Boutique hotels differentiate themselves from larger chain/branded hotels and motels by providing personalized accommodation and services / facilities. Sometimes known as “design hotels” or “lifestyle hotels“, boutique hotels began appearing in the 1980s in major cities like London, New York, and San Francisco. Typically boutique hotels are furnished in a themed, stylish and/or aspirational manner. Although usually considerably smaller than mainstream hotels, often ranging from 3 to 100 guest rooms, some city-centre boutique hotels may have several hundred. Boutique hotels are always individual and are therefore extremely unlikely to be found amongst the homogenity of large chain hotel groups. Guest rooms and suites may be fitted with telephony and Wi-Fi Internet, air-conditioning, honesty bars and often cable/pay TV, but equally may have none of these, focusing on quiet and comfort rather than gadgetry. Guest services are often attended to by 24-hour hotel staff. Many boutique hotels have on-site dining facilities, and the majority offer bars and lounges which may also be open to the general public.

Despite this definition, the popularity of the boutique term and concept has led to some confusion about the term. Boutique hotels have typically been unique properties operated by individuals or companies with a small collection. However, their successes have prompted established multi-national hotel companies to usurp the term and/or try to establish their own brands in order to capture a market share. The most notable example is Starwood Hotels and Resorts Worldwide’s W Hotels, ranging from large boutique hotels like the W Union Square NY to the W ’boutique resorts’ in the Maldives to true luxury boutique hotel collections like the Bulgari collection, SLS Hotels, Thompson Hotels, Joie De Vie hotels, and The Keating Hotel, among many others.

There is some overlap between the concept of a small boutique hotel and a bed and breakfast.

In the United States, New York remains the center of the boutique hotel phenomenon, as the original Schrager-era boutique hotels remain relevant and are joined by scores of independent and small-chain competitors, mainly clustered about Midtown and downtown Manhattan. The French Quarter and Garden District, New Orleans have several dozen boutique hotels, most of which are located in old homes or inns. These usually provide an ambience based on 19th-century antiques, artwork with New Orleans themes, vintage or reproduction furniture and decor and/or interesting historical associations. Miami and Miami Beach also have a large number of boutique hotels, mostly found along the beachfront streets Ocean Drive and Collins Drive. Most of these are in buildings from the heyday of the Art Deco period. Their attractions include the Art Deco ambiance, beach access, nouvelle and Latin cuisines and tropical-themes interior decor.

The concept of boutique or design hotels has spread elsewhere outside the US. A good example is Thailand where many boutique or design hotels are sprouting, especially in resort locations, such as Phuket and Hua Hin. Boutique hotels are even now appearing in such places as Indonesia, Shanghai, Iceland, Peru and Turkey. Boutique and design hotels are becoming increasingly popular in Far Eastern cities such as Bangkok, Singapore, Hong Kong and even Beijing.
