Don’t agonize over your answer. Thanks to a new, hybrid concept that’s taking the hospitality world by storm, it’s possible to get the best of both worlds. Meet the boutique apart-hotel. It’s half-apartment, half-hotel, but 100 percent ready for your Instagram feed.

But this isn’t that: Boutique apart-hotels are geared toward project-based travelers who’d typically book shorter stays at stylish boltholes such as Hoxton or Soho House.
