More travelers squeezing hotel inventory

Posted: October, 09 2014

When it comes to booking rooms for vacations to the world's most sought after locations like Rome, Venice, Florence, Paris or London, it's best to book early. These destinations are not only popular to American travelers, but to travelers all over the world, which means hotel rooms go fast and the best rooms go first! For instance, Chinese and Russian outbound travel will double by 2020, with France as one of the top destinations for Chinese travelers and Italy for Russian travelers.  This is why we recommend that our clients book rooms for their travels as far in advance as possible. This will ensure that they get the best room and don't have to compromise on the location, size, amenities and other features they want.

If Italy is in your traveling future, let us help you get the ball rolling early! Check out these new hotels now available for booking through Small & Elegant Hotels.

And as always, if you'd like more information or for booking, contact us as

The Gray, Milan

The Gray reflects  Milan’s true soul: style, elegance and eclecticism.  This hub of the city’s social whirl is a favorite with  fashionistas and jet-setting VIPs, and a must on the Milan’s high society calendar.

The Gray, which is right in the heart of the city that never sleeps,  has an Art Nouveau facade that conceals an exciting line-up of details designed by vibrant and original stylists.  The hall is a glittering  gallery in which everyday objects loose none of their functionality, yet are brought into play as amusing interior design features.

Twenty-one rooms, each one original and like no other, and all in the most eclectic of styles. With suspended beds or original bed heads that seem to soar to impossible heights, they feature minimalist chests of drawers and cupboards that are reflected in large mirrors with frames in jungle-inspired themes and warm woods with deep veins that transform a natural element into a refined work of art.
