The basic promise of the big hotel chains is the same experience wherever you are in the world. If you want to get the true essence of a city, a locally owned hotel is the way to go. Our locally owned hotels can offer unique experiences, and we’re able to use local purveyors of food, beverages, furnishings, flowers, soaps, music and more.
