Since its creation in 2003, the Mr & Mrs Smith hotel collection has captured the imagination of travellers all around the world. The award-winning travel company began as an independent, in-the-know handbook to the very best boutique hotels - those unforgettable places to stay that get the balance of style, service, atmosphere and authenticity just right.
Mr & Mrs Smith has cherry-picked the most stylish and seductive hotels across the globe exclusively for ba.com. The collection includes everything from intimate, owner-run guesthouses to luxury city stays. They are the perfect places to indulge yourself, whether you’re away with a group of friends, on business, with the kids or enjoying a romantic weekend for two.
Mr & Mrs Smith was conceived as an insider authority on boutique hotels that people could trust. They judge hotels on the qualities that really mean something to guests: the experience, the originality of design, attention to detail, and all those unique, personal touches that live long in the memory. They could be set in historic buildings like the Canal House in Amsterdam or in designer beach retreats like Villa by Barton G in Miami – what they have in common is romance, character and an element of discovery.
With two of the most generous loyalty schemes in the travel industry, Smith and British Airways offer a wealth of additional benefits to booking trips on ba.com. As well as accruing Avios points on each booking, if you are a SilverSmith or GoldSmith member, you will also receive 1% of your total booking value in Smith loyalty money. Plus every customer gets a ‘Smith Extra’ at each hotel - this could be a bottle of champagne, a free spa treatment, late check-out or a bespoke gift from the hotel.
We felt it was important to share the opinions from Mr & Mrs Smith's admired and respected panel of reviewers too. Smith's reviewers are a worldwide panel of friends and people trusted to report back. They personally visit every hotel, so you can be rest assured that each hotel featured has been bed-tested and really is the best in class. They will give you the insider knowledge you’d expect from a close friend who will really tell you how it is.
