Boutique Hotels in New England

The very idea of boutique hotels could have been born in New England. Boutique hotels are usually on the small side, with lots of character and a service staff that wants to keep you satisfied and comfortable. The distinctive nooks and corners for New England – from wind-blown cliffside inns of Maine to bustling downtowns to the country roads of Litchfield, CT, are home to boutique hotels that pamper travelers with sweet amenities, intimate service, and authentic New England character. So nice for a romantic getaway or a simple rest in the countryside or a cultural capital.
