Frequently Asked Questions
I’m building a hotel. What does it take to become a Mexico Boutique Hotel?
This is the most frequent question we’re asked and is difficult to answer. Mexico Boutique Hotels does not have a specific check list of physical elements, dimensions or attributes that a hotel must have. It would go against our very nature to attempt to standardize hotels in any way.
We look for properties with a unique, clear, personality. Small hotels (under 50 rooms) that offer exceptional experiences and care about details; in decor, comfort and most importantly, service. Businesses that go out of their way to be special, promote and support local resources and truly focus on their guests. Intuitive, sincere service in a beautiful setting.
How long does a hotel have to operate before becoming a member of Mexico Boutique Hotels?
We use to ask a hotel to operate for at least one year prior to working with them. It made sense to wait and allow them to settle in and work out opening-year kinks. We no longer require a whole year but do expect a hotel to be running for a few months before we can visit ourselves and also see what other visitors thought. It doesn’t seem fair—for a hotel or a traveler—to promote something that isn’t quite ready and we try to be diligent about that.
I have a property that could make an excellent boutique hotel. Could you help me sell it to possible investors?
Unfortunately, not yet. We often get requests but are focusing 100% on helping our existing group of hotels at this time.
I own a hotel and would like to know how to become a member of Mexico Boutique Hotels?
The first thing to do is contact us. Ideally, by email at info [@] mexicoboutiquehotels.com. We’ll send you information on the steps to follow and will ask lots of questions on your hotel. We normally study a hotel’s reputation online and also look at the website. We then send you a detailed questionnaire to fill out and then, finally schedule a proper visit/meeting if both the hotel and MBH think it can be a good match.
