Is there ever a time of year when you’re not planning your next trip? I find it inspiring how much our culture has embraced travel in recent years, finally following the lead of our friends across the pond in realizing how much it can truly enrich life. And with design-forward boutique hotels taking the place of cookie-cutter chains, finding beautiful accommodations is now a big part of the adventure. The down side? Those boutique hotel price tags. Ouch.
With spring travel around the corner, we’re rounding up some of our favorite indie hotels that are the perfect balance of beautiful and wallet-friendly, so you can get your ‘gram and sleep there too.
