The art of travelling and living well
Posted on July 11, 2014 by FCm Travel Solutions
If a picture paints a thousand words, the artwork on the walls of the Art Series Hotel Group of properties is sure to get the conversation started. Five years on from the opening of their first property in Melbourne, this dynamic hotel group is continuing to innovate and earn itself a dedicated clientele.
The successful art-inspired hotel group - which pays homage to some of the country’s most iconic artists – is set to expand into South Australia, with The Watson due to open in Adelaide in August. Honouring the talents of Indigenous artist Tommy Watson, this new property will feature the hotel group’s boutique, home-away-from-home experience for both business and leisure travellers.
The Art Series Hotel Group has set itself apart due to its art-infused style which features original artworks, warm communal areas and distinctive design, with many of the hotels also offering art classes, an art library, a dedicated art channel, art tours and trips to local artisan markets.
Like the rest of the hotels in the group, The Watson, is billed as more of a community than a hotel. This unique approach means that the hotel embraces all types of guests – from those wanting a one or two night stay, to visiting business people looking for a short or long-term rental for the term of their contract. The flexible range of accommodation options also makes the hotel perfect for new arrivals in town, people renovating their main home and the newly single, who want independence without the hassle of committing to a rental property. Apart from original artworks on the walls, the rooms generally also feature free wi-fi, Foxtel and Art Channel, a Bluetooth docking station and a workstation.
The Watson is located in Walkerville, a leafy suburb over looking the Adelaide Hills and joins the group’s other Victorian based hotels including The Cullen in Prahran, The Olsen in South Yarra, The Blackman in St. Kilda and The Schaller Studio in Bendigo.
For guests looking for something different and memorable, the warm and inviting Art Series Hotel Group offers a unique and truly original boutique hotel experience. And you might even be inspired to get your sketchpad out!
