Trendy or Modern Hotels

These top hotels strive to have special experiences in properties that have a unique design, exclusive restaurants and become notable hangouts due to their modern theme and “happening” atmosphere.

Design Hotels

Distinctive hotels with unique architecture, where the room design is as important as the mattress. Style, along with environmental concerns, are important factors. Design hotels vary by the unique abilities of the people who create them. Artistic expression, functionality, and imagination combine to make the most successful design hotels, and keep guest not only comfortable during their stay, but in a constant state of awe with the hotel designer’s creative vision.

All Suite Hotels

A hotel that claims ‘All Suite’ status is expected to have at least one separated bedroom off of the living area. Often these hotels offer mini fridges or kitchenette features.

Architectural Hotels

Avant-Garde Hotels

City Hotels

City hotels are more than hotels settled within a city’s primary zip code. These hotels reflect the ambiance and character of their cities along with optimal location within the city’s boundaries that allow guests easy access to explore.

Classic Hotels

Classic hotels are a throwback to the days when dramatic lobbies, adorned with stunning chandeliers and welcoming décor, were the industry standard. Classic hotels buck the stripped-down, no frills environment of today’s mega-chain hotels and serve as relics of what a hotel should be.

Classy Hotels

Classy hotels attract the luxury traveler who expects a refined lodging experience. Visitors expect classy art work, ambiance, and high-end service during their stay.

Comfortable Hotel

It may be easier to define comfortable hotels by what they aren’t: squeaky, drafty, and cramped. The traveler who wishes to find a comfortable hotel expects thick walls, a comfortable bed, cleanliness, and a restful environment. Anything less would never be described as “uncomfortable.”

Conference Hotel

A conference hotel primarily offers amenities for business meeting, banquets, or other special events.

Contemporary Hotels

Contemporary hotels reflect the sleek and stylish sect of the “artistic hotel” family. They boast modern amenities along with a dash of unique artistic inspiration.

Corporate Hotels

Corporate hotels are for the business traveler who requires a seamless transition from the home office to the hotel room. Today, this means a quality workspace, dependable Internet and other technology, along with quick service and sensible accommodations.

Country Hotels

Country hotels are where travelers go to get away. Above all, they are quiet and charming. Country hotels can offer a wide range of amenities depending on their price points and location.

Designer Hotels

Designer hotels vary by the unique abilities of the people who create them. Artistic expression, functionality, and imagination combine to make the most successful design hotels, and keep guest not only comfortable during their stay but in a constant state of awe with the hotel designer’s creative vision.

Distinctive Hotels

Distinctive hotels are similar to boutique hotels in that they come in several shapes, sizes, quirks, and degrees of funk; yet they stand out in the area of surrounding amenities. Distinctive hotels are not only unique marvels on the inside but are found in highly desirable locations, most often in travel destinations off the beaten path.

Extraordinary Hotels

Extraordinary hotels couldn’t possibly go by any other name. For travelers, these hotels are the destination. There are no limits to what an extraordinary hotel can entail: made of ice or other unthinkable materials; built underground, in a tree, or jutting out into the ocean; featuring triple king sized beds or lavish Jacuzzi features. There are not limits to the extraordinary!

Funky Hotels

Funky hotels feature unique spins on lodging staples. Guests are hit with creative use of color, abstract design and unique furniture in funky hotels.
