Each year, more than 1,000 independent boutique hotels apply to become a part of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World portfolio. However, only 5 percent are invited to join the brand, meaning travelers can expect quality amenities, inviting atmospheres and impeccable accommodations when staying at an SLH-affiliated hotel. What's more, mystery inspectors visit the brand's 500-plus properties annually to ensure that guests are experiencing the highest standards of service and value. This brand markets itself as a champion of hidden treasures, so no two Small Luxury Hotels are alike. However, one consistent perk of the SLH brand is the free-to-join INVITED program. This three-tiered benefits system includes rewards like room upgrades and free breakfast. Most importantly, this brand gives customers options: Its portfolio includes everything from family-friendly historical inns to adults-only resorts with Michelin-starred restaurants. Keep in mind, most of the brand's hotels are located outside of the United States, with numerous outposts in Europe and Asia. You can explore several Small Luxury Hotels of the World properties on our Best Hotels rankings.

    • Free WiFi

    5.0-star Hotel Class
    • Free WiFi

    The Claris Hotel and Spa is about as swanky as they come. The lobby is adorned with marble columns and leather furnishings and the hotel features a variety of rooftop spaces including, a pool, a bar, a restaurant and a gym. But its interiors and services aren't the only elements that earned praise from recent lodgers. Guests love the hotel's location among the bustling streets of Barcelona. The Passeig de Gracia, Barcelona's premier shopping street, sits just blocks away, as does Gaudí's gorgeous Casa Mila and Casa Batlló. But you don't have to leave the property to experience world-class art. Hotel Claris features an extensive art collection in and out of the rooms, particularly on the first floor, where guests can find a variety of works from original Roman mosaics to centuries-old Turkish kilims. Along with one-of-a-kind artwork, rooms feature plenty of modern amenities including flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity.  Guests looking to get a bite on-site will no doubt eat up the stylish interiors of the Chinese-Mediterranean fusion Mr. Kao or the rooftop La Terraza del Claris, both praised for its cuisine and awesome atmosphere.
