Infusing art throughout the hotel experience, a stay at an Art Series hotel is a celebration of self-expression.
Check in and have a customised iPad sent to your hotel room so that you can go ‘no robe’ and take a self-portrait in private. Once captured, the image is securely sent to an official Art Series artist to reimagine your photo as a life drawing. All participating guests receive their one-of-a-kind artwork after they check out.
The idea was celebrated by the media and delivered $250 million in earned coverage. Channel Nine News credited the idea with “opening up a whole new clientele of people that are interested in the arts”.
