May 29, 2014 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News
May 29, 2014 - Over 850 Americans ages 18 65 and over were questioned to find Americans' preference in hotel accommodations when faced with either staying in a franchise hotel or a boutique hotel. The survey, completed on behalf of The Ellis Hotel in downtown Atlanta, Ga, uncovered that the results are nearly split with 58.7 percent choosing franchise hotels and 41.3 percent opting for a boutique hotel options.

The Ellis Hotel then proceeded to consider different demographics within the survey. In their research, it was discovered that younger Americans ages 18 34 were more likely to choose a stay in a boutique hotel than Americans 35 years of age and up. In addition, over half of the Americans ages 18 34 surveyed that also resided in an urban community were found to prefer a boutique hotel, with 52.8% choosing the benefits of boutique accommodations over what a franchise hotel offers. A closer look within those results finds that nearly three-fifths of urban residing Americans ages 25 34 choose boutique hotels over a franchise hotel option.
A boutique hotel offers a personable stay, providing guests with a homey feel while still featuring all the convenience found at a franchise hotel. Housing fewer than 125 rooms, a smaller sized boutique hotel with a metropolitan city center location are often only a short walk away from many city attractions and must see's. Mirroring the style and attitude of the city they reside in, boutique hotels provide a creative and unique hotel experience that is rich in both accommodation standards and community presence, often reflecting the city's art and music scenes within their hotel.
