WHITE PAPER FOR DEFINING BOUTIQUE AND LIFESTYLE LODGINGS
RELEASED TODAY TO MEMBERS
The Boutique & Lifestyle Lodging Association Moves Forward In Developing
A Universal Standard For Boutique & Lifestyle Hotels
LOS ANGELES, CA – The Boutique & Lifestyle Lodging Association, (BLLA), a leading hospitality industry association officially representing independent boutique and lifestyle properties and the suppliers worldwide, announced the much-anticipated release of its first research White Paper.
This document, in a united voice of independent boutique hoteliers, serves as an important tool in developing a universal standard and criteria for defining boutique and lifestyle lodgings.
A boutique is defined by the Webster’s dictionary as “a small fashionable specialty shop or business”. While the term is used liberally, there has been no commonly agreed definition of “boutique hotel” which is why BLLA’s Founder and hospitality industry veteran Frances Kiradjian initiated the survey and is releasing the project findings today.
