Boutique Hotels You Haven't Heard Of

by Andrew Harper

Cutting back on your hotel budget doesn't mean giving up on style and character… if you know where to book. To help us pinpoint under-the-radar hotels with panache and reasonable room rates, we turned to Andrew Harper, whose newsletter, the "Hideaway Report," has been recommending small luxury hotels to its exclusive readership for three decades. Harper (the name is actually a pseudonym for a longtime travel writer who anonymously visits the hotels he reviews) agrees that price is not always a reliable predictor of quality in hotels. "For under $300 a night, you may not be getting a Jacuzzi tub or a state-of-the-art spa," he told "But you can get a hotel with charm and a sense of place, of character." Here, with the help of Andrew Harper, are ten under-the-radar hotel gems worth seeking out.
