Maybe it’s a bike ride down a side street that reveals a perfect, out-of-the-way coffeeshop. Or perhaps it’s an impromptu discussion with a pair of locals who tell you just what makes their corner of the world so special. Or it could even be when a harried tourist mistakes you for a resident and asks you for directions. These precious moments, and many others like them, reveal the true and distinctive characteristics of a destination. They put you in lockstep with the locals. They transform a place into an experience. Far more than just a room, the hotels below offer you full immersion into the local life—and now also with fully flexible rates in case your plans change.
