In New York: The Carlyle – "Although the residents of the hotel are of different shapes, sizes and ages, the population tends to skew older and from a high tax bracket, said Marcie Lieberman, director at The Carlyle hotel. "Usually one person is higher step. People have come to some comfort and love to live in an environment when these things are available, "he said.

Combine that with the right amount of pampering, and you have the answer to the prayers of a local resident hotel – amenities that end in. The Ritz-Carlton on Central Park South, for example, offers inclusive and a la carte services for any situation of wanting to need a massage diamonds at any time. "(Daniel Bubbeo, Newsday)

In London: "John Petch, director of sales of boutique hotel group, GLA Hotels (owners of Lancaster in Paris and the Cadogan Hotel in London) began his career with the Savoy Group in early 1980. At that time, the fifth floor at Claridges was reserved for long-term customers. But by the 1990s, he says, the residence of the hotel was shutting down. Even the rich regarded as unprofitable long stays and turned his attention investment opportunities affordable second homes.

But the trend is changing, both in Lancaster and Cadogan have three long-term residents used by hotels like the foundation of their city. "People are returning to the hotel because of security and service," says Petch. Boutique hotels also excel in providing a home-home environment, backed by personalized service. "If you have an apartment, you may need someone to take care of you," he says. "Here have all our personnel on duty. "" (Tracy Hoffman, Financial Times)
