Top boutiques prepare to step onto world stage


The World Boutique Hotel Awards are set to take place this Friday and will see a number of managers and owners of luxury establishments come together in London to celebrate their successes.

The event will welcome hotel owners from all over the world and this year will see the launch of The Master Key Society, held at the Montcalm Hotel Marble Arch.

The Awards, now in their 5th year, are dedicated to recognising excellence among boutique hotels and on the night will reward hotels in 12 categories with an accolade.

The 12 categories include Romantic, Wellness and Sustainable, and this year a few stand-out UK entries include The Wheatsheaf Inn in the Cotswolds and The Arch in London.

The launch of The Master Key Society marks the start of a new venture to create valuable relationships among the winners by facilitating hotel exchange visits between them.
