Tablet Hotels — The Original Boutique Hotel Authority
For two decades Tablet has been the place to go for all the hotels that matter, from hip independent boutiques to grand old palace hotels, and everything in between: hotels that offer an experience rather than a transaction, and make you feel like an adventurer instead of a comparison shopper. Now we’re part of Michelin Guides, another company that’s known for identifying and elevating the most extraordinary talents in hospitality. For you this means more unforgettable places to stay — and for Tablet Plus members, the VIP treatment at an ever-increasing number of hotels.
We believe there’s more to hotels than just the data you can quantify, like price, location, and amenities. We’ve looked at every hotel in the world over the last 19 years so that we can give you a short list of the ones that have taste and soul, across a range of prices and styles.
Because not everyone cares about hotels like we do, we recognize that Tablet isn’t for everyone — though it can be for anyone who does. Our selection is trusted by millions of sophisticated travelers around the world, and we wouldn’t survive if we didn’t get the best possible prices. We make money from online booking, which means not only that hotels don’t pay to join our listings, which keeps us independent, but also that we put our money where our recommendations are — so making you happy is ultimately the name of the game.
Booking on Tablet is free of service charges or any fees. Our Tablet Plus program gives you access to free room upgrades (when available) and at least three more value-adding privileges on every booking at 500+ of the best hotels in the world....and guess what, it's free to try for 30 days and then $99 USD per year after that.
• Robust list-making tools called “Staylists” that allow you to make custom lists — perfect for trip planning or frequent traveling where you are only interested in your favorites. The hotels you ‘love’ can also be found here. (APP only)

Best hotel selection in the world. Easy to use.
I don’t take a trip without checking Tablet Hotels first. It doesn’t matter where I’m going, they’re gonna put me in a hotel that is perfectly Curated to suit my needs and style of travel. If I have ever had trouble with the reservation it’s always been tablet to the rescue right away no questions asked. Thank you for so many years of great service tablet :-)
Tablet is the best resource I have found when trying to cut through the clutter to find hotels I’m actually excited to stay in. Selection is always on point and I love receiving additional benefits through Tablet Plus. Customer service is always so great to deal with as well. Best service for finding unique hotels for people that want a luxurious genuine experience.
Tablet Plus is a scam
This site is terrible, I made the mistake of paying for a plus membership and every time I have attempted to use the “special benefits” they have somehow not applied to the reservation. Do not book through them, but their content is decent.
Replying to developer response - no where on your plus membership page (unless it has been updated) did it outline the massive limitations to plus nor were these limitations in the terms (of five reservations I attempted to make the plus benefits didn’t apply for one reason or another). Advertising a service and then not providing it feels pretty scammy to me!
