These cu­rated web­sites take the drama out of find­ing your dream ho­tel.

If you feel to­tally over­whelmed by the thou­sands of op­tions that pop up on ac­com­mo­da­tion com­par­i­son sites such as Ho­tels.com and Book­ing.com, you’re not alone.

Yes, you’ll find the usual chain ho­tels and be able to lock in the cheap­est price. But if you want some­thing quirky and bou­tique, or if you don’t know what you’re af­ter and just need some in­spi­ra­tion, the search process be­comes muddy.

En­ter the cu­rated ho­tel web­site, of­fer­ing al­ter­na­tives to end­less lists on main­stream sites. These com­pa­nies don’t own or man­age ho­tels, but in­vite prop­er­ties that fit their cri­te­ria to be listed as part of a pres­ti­gious list.

Whether you’re on the hunt for a tree house, pri­vate villa or grand his­toric ho­tel, here are the cu­ra­tors that save you the trou­ble of trawl­ing be­fore you travel.
