    See the list of new hotels incl. descriptions, see above link. Excellent and individual properties, from what I can see.

    Wow, very interesting. Those hotels sound really nice.
    I wonder how small hotels like those can compete with the big chain hotels which offer loyalty rewards and free nights. It would be hard for me to shell out thousands of dollars for a week if I could stay for free with points.

    These hotels are all belong to the "Small Luxury Hotels of the World" marketing platform and they offer perks too, depending on status from free internet, breakfast to free nights and discounts. While they may not enjoy the cloud of the big hotel chains out there, they offer an alternative which incl. individualized services, interesting design, rooms, food and drink offerings plus many of their hotels are artistic gems. No big hotel chain can match true individual luxury, it's not really about burning points, it's more about the experience, it's more about quality of instead "forced" quantity. That's how they compete and yes, demand for such properties is on the up worldwide, as people look out for more "global" travel with "local" flavors, it has the potential to open up a whole new world for the frequent flyer and explorer.

    Some other platforms for extraordinary hotels incl.
    Preferred Hotels and Resorts,
    The Leading Hotels of the World and
    Great Hotels of the World.

    Sounds like a good chance to get some local flavor and personal attention.
    Wonder what type of rates we are looking at?

    The hotel is a masterpiece and is located in the heart of the city, overlooking the River Arno, only 8km from the airport.

    OMG, that rewards program is amazing!
    That really changes my mind on the big hotel rewards programs.

    Also, Hotel Lungarno looks really nice.

    If I had the money, I'd just stay at these types of hotels since it's more personalized.

    Ditto, but on a case by case basis it's possible. I believe these properties are special, so is how I would treat them, as something special. :)

    I agree.

  11. nice program, the key then is the price points relative say to RA with IC where you can book the cheapest room and enjoy the upgrade, outside of say NY, Lon and Paris, i'd say the average for a base room would be c USD 200 whereas i'm guessing the price points for this group may be a bit higher.
