"Incredibly unique" hotels

In today's e-mail member update from TripAdvisor, I received a link to a list of "incredibly unique" hotels. "Unique" can't be qualified: A hotel or anything else for that matter either is or is not unique. Perhaps TA meant to say "incredibly rare hotels" or "incredibly unusual hotels" or something like that. But not "incredibly unique."

Perhaps TA meant "incredible unique hotels". I avoid correcting other peoples' grammatical and spelling errors, particularly when they're just one character away from a possible correct answer.

Of course the literal meaning of incredible is the something that is not credible, impossible, unbelievable (and not as it is more frequently used as a synonym for amazingly good or wonderful, this is actually an informal usage/definition).

Thus, maybe TA really meant was trying to say something along the lines of "it is not believable that this hotel is unique" - any takers? ;-)

I was under the impression they were hotels featured in the movie, "The Incredibles".

I have just received the e_mail and think that the accommodations listed are all incredible and unique in their own way

TripAdvisor + 'overanalyzing' does not = a happy relationship ;-)
