Boutique Hotel Rooms in Top Destinations
broughtonHOTELS has deep roots in California. We were founded in 2001 with the opening of hotels in Santa Barbara and Palm Springs. Our fondness for all things California shows in our collection of the best small boutique hotels in the state. We’re expanding that vibe to our boutique hotels in Chicago, IL, too.
California has long been a land of dreamers. From the gold rush and Golden Gate of Northern California to the gold records and golden sun of Southern California, the Golden State has lots of ways we can help you fulfill your travel dreams. We offer amenities for business and leisure travelers. broughtonHOTELS boasts a variety of California destinations with some of the best small hotels there are. If you’re looking to take a trip to the Windy City, we have three small boutique hotels in Chicago, too. You can live like a local and explore Chicago’s lakeshore or take a walk through Wrigleyville, one of the city’s hottest neighborhoods.
Northern California Hotels
Our Northern California destinations include two coastal towns that are havens for the arts, music, and education. They are destinations for leisure travelers and offer a variety of experiences that are good for couples or families.
Monterey is full of natural beauty that is often the subject of photographers, and the comfortable coastal climate is the draw for many. It is a city of too many firsts to mention, but our favorite is the first theater in California opened here. There is no shortage of reasons to visit Monterey, from the historic Presidio and the Defense Language Institute to the National Steinbeck Center and the Monterey Jazz Festival. Make sure to plan a trip when you have time to explore. We would be remiss not to mention golf. This is a golfer’s paradise, and home to four of Golf Magazine’s Best Public Courses to Play in California.
Santa Cruz is a great funky family destination that is also home to UC-Santa Cruz, making this one cool college town to visit. The world-famous Boardwalk draws families from far and wide to enjoy the rides and carnival-like atmosphere. However, what this city has really become known for is its thriving arts community and access to terrific outdoor nature experiences. Surfing is king in this coastal town during the winter and early spring. Don’t forget to visit the Surf Park at Pleasure Point.
Southern California Hotels
From the coastal community of Santa Barbara to the star-studded Los Angeles area, broughtonHOTELS wants you to experience all that this sunny destination has to offer.
Santa Barbara, the American Riviera, is a star-studded town filled with so much natural beauty you may not want to leave. The charm of red-tiled rooms and Spanish mission architecture, the beautiful scenery, and moderate climate are some of the reasons that so many artists and photographers set up shop here. Not be outdone by the arts, Santa Barbara is also a very active outdoor community offering amazing bicycling, hiking, and ocean adventures. The only trouble is finding time for all the things you want to do. Good thing we have two small hotels in Santa Barbara that are the perfect spots to call home while you’re exploring the area.
Los Angeles is a true international travel destination. It is the headquarters city for many international businesses as well as the backdrop for many blockbuster movies. It’s no wonder so many people have packed up their stuff and headed to LA. This is a city of many neighborhoods, cultures, and experiences. Whether you are visiting one or all of the many amusement parks or the Fashion District, we want to help you explore our home. Los Angeles is a sprawling city, where trips aren’t measured by miles, but minutes. Don’t fret, because even if you pull off of the highway, you are sure to find great new adventures you will always remember. Our hotels in Studio City include a historic hotel with a star-filled past, giving you a well maintained, budget-minded option.
There is so much more we can say about California, but we figure you’ll want to find it out for yourself. Take a moment and book your next trip to iconic sunny Southern California. You can find our best rates direct on our site, and our hotels come with benefits like free Wi-Fi, or free parking when you book direct.
Chicago’s Best Small Boutique Hotels
Chicago is a Midwestern mecca featuring titans of the business world and championship sports teams. You can live like a local and find so much that you would miss if you stuck to a big box hotel in downtown. There are gems to be found in this amazing city full of high rise buildings and massive tributes to merchants. Unlike their West Coast cousins, our Chicago hotels have distinctly different activities to enjoy by season. You’ll be sure to enjoy ice skating, warm cocoa, and cozy nights in during the winter months, but this is a city that parties on a whole different level when the spring comes. Have you heard of turning the river green over St. Patrick’s Day? How about the world-class architectural tours? Well then head to Chicago. We have many pleasant urban experiences waiting for you.
