One new way hotels are enticing guests is by appealing to art coinsurers. From paintings in the lobby, to a full art gallery, to simply using new and creative decorating ideas, the using of art to appeal to travelers seems to be a new trend amongst hoteliers. Check out a few of our artsy hotel picks…
The Andaz Amsterdam Prinsengracht has the largest in-hotel video art collection in the world. Not only is this a striking hotel, it doubles as an art gallery. The décor and visuals are designed by world renowned artists, Yael Bartana, Cristina Lucas, and Martha Colburn to name a few. This hotel is beloved by Amsterdam’s creative community, and has potential to become a huge success.
Le Royal Monceau Raffles Paris is an art lover’s paradise- only steps away from Champs Elysees and the Arc de Triomphe. Filled with paintings and photographs from international artists, the property also provides an art concierge to keep travelers informed about local Parisian art events.
The Faena Hotel Buenos Aires is just blocks away from the Faena Arts Center. Both are owned by the same company, the Faena Group, and have helped to create a lively art district. The center features contemporary art from all over the world, and the admission fee is waived for guests of the hotel. The property also offers a unique program allowing artists to stay at the hotel to work on their art.
