7 Reasons You Should Always Choose a Boutique Hotel

When traveling, picking the right hotel is already a chore. Finding the right location at the right price and accommodations that will please your family or friends is just another daunting task to add to that list. If you’ve never stayed at a boutique hotel before, you probably don’t know what sets them apart from other hotels, or how you and your travel companions could benefit from choosing a room at a unique boutique hotel. While the reasons are endless, we thought it would be a good idea to highlight some of the best of them. When choosing the places to stay on your next vacation, you’ll know each of the advantages and find a great boutique hotel. 

1) Personal Attention

At a boutique hotel like The Moonrise Hotel, the main objective of the staff is to provide guests with personalized service. Because boutique hotels are much smaller than your average Holiday Inn, staff are able to cater to the needs of each guest.

The Moonrise Hotel takes personalization to new heights. We encourage travelers to bring their furry best friends and roll out the red carpet to welcome them. For those staying with us, we provide Aveda bath products, lighted make-up mirrors, electric car charging, a fitness center and so much more!

2) Upscale Design

While traditional, larger hotels offer very basic design and aesthetic, a typical boutique hotel will show off extraordinary architecture that is unlike other hotels you have seen in the past. This makes boutique hotels the perfect place to take memorable photos with your family and friends.

With a large spinning moon on the roof of the Moonrise Hotel, you can see from the outside just how a boutique hotel stands out from the crowd. If you step inside, you’ll catch a glimpse of our rainbow staircase, too. However, that’s just the beginning; just wait until you walk into your room!

3) Artistic Decor

Boutique hotels usually have a theme that creates a cohesive atmosphere from the lobby to the restaurant to the rooms and beyond. To further extend the theme’s reach, each decoration will express the individuality of the hotel’s personality.

Take the Moonrise Hotel, for example. Every inch of our fantastic hotel brings the space theme to life. Our modern accommodations and futuristic vibe will have you feeling like you’ll be the next to walk on the moon.

4) Great Location

Because boutique hotels are much smaller than chain hotels, they can occupy much smaller space. This makes it easier to build the perfect place to stay right in the heart of a city.

Located on the Delmar Loop, the Moonrise Hotel provides guests with access to some of St. Louis’ most beloved activities. You can check out the celebrities’ stars on the Walk of Fame, grab a bite at Blueberry Hill, catch your favorite band at The Pageant, head to Forest Park and so much more!

5) Private, Intimate Experience

One of the best perks of staying in a boutique hotel is the amount of privacy in comparison to your average hotel. The intimate setting of these facilities offer that sense of privacy, with communal spaces for those who like to mingle.

With special door hangers designed to let our staff know to stay away and allow our guests to keep relaxing, you can be sure we won’t come knocking.

6) Luxurious Accommodations

When staying at a large hotel chain, you will notice that the accommodations are the same across the board: the same limp pillows, light blankets and lumpy mattresses. However, at a boutique hotel, accommodations are often much more luxurious.

The accommodations at the Moonrise Hotel are lavish from the spa toiletries to the ultra-plush eurotop mattresses. You’ll feel like a million bucks after staying with us!

7) Affordable Pricing

Now that you’ve seen the list of all of the exciting advantages of staying in a boutique hotel, you’re probably wondering about the cost of staying at one. The best part about a boutique hotel is the fact that they are very similar to average hotel pricing.

While more expensive than a motel, the prices at the Moonrise Hotel are comparable to other area locations. If you would like to reserve your boutique hotel room at The Moonrise Hotel, book now!
