Following the popularity of Airbnb, accommodations like this boutique are offering invisible service. This means no front desk with staff that aim to be out of sight as much as possible, with an objective "to erase barriers between visitors and their destination" and give guests the experience of living like locals. This speaks to a desire for authentic living and experiential travel -- something valued by many of the millennial generation. Invisible Service also makes visitors feel more integrated in a new neighborhood.

Located in a historical building in Philadelphia's Old City, Lokal Hotel has six apartment units equipped with separate bedrooms, full kitchens, a living area and even washer and dryer laundry facilities. Guests also have access to personalized recommendations regarding restaurants, galleries and more.
