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.

    Hotel Lungarno
    Florence
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1478 reviewsTripAdvisor (1478)
    Free WiFi

    This property overlooking the Arno river in Florence underwent a major renovation in 2017, and travelers could not be more impressed. Offering stunning views of the Ponte Vecchio, Hotel Lungarno features nautical stylings and a living room suspended above the river. The blue, white and leather interiors extend to the accommodations, which boast antique furniture and original artwork. (The hotel features more than 400 pieces of fine art from artists like Picasso and Guidi.) More modern amenities include blackout shades, coffee and tea makers, flat-screen TVs, complimentary loaner iPads and free Wi-Fi access. Upgraded rooms and suites offer more square footage and extra perks like separate sitting areas, minibars and balconies with river vistas. Recent guests described their rooms as beautiful and comfortable. Travelers were also complimentary of the on-site restaurants, especially the Michelin-starred Borgo San Jacopo, which serves contemporary Italian cuisine and houses a wine cellar with 900 labels. For a lighter meal, visitors can dine at the Picteau Lounge Bar, which also offers afternoon tea and views of the river from its terrace. While past guests said the property was stunning and luxurious, they cited the friendly, attentive staff as the highlight of their stays.
