Best hotels for true art-lovers to stay at

NEW YORK, NY.- The latest expansion of the art and culture facilities – museums, theaters and exhibitions has recently touched upon the new sphere – hotel business. Modern hotels are becoming more and more creative and innovative in their efforts to kick away rivals and attract travelers, so there’s small wonder you will encounter a Van Gogh art exposition in your room as you check in.

And there’s a feeling that some hotel owners are not going to stop with just painted walls in the suites and numerous installations. From invitations of contemporary artists to a fully private gallery tour for two led by an art historian all to yourselves. The wide choice in recent years is quite flexible, though it may be tricky to find an ideal place to stay the nights at that matches your expectations.

Browsing the Net and selecting the finest art hotels to please your perfectionist nature, we’ve joined forces with to present you the lowdown on the world’s top 6 hotels that embraced art and became real masterpieces.

1. Mona Pavilions, Hobart, Australia
David Walsh is world famous Australian professional Internet gambler who introduced betting software that made his pile and the world fame. Mona is primarily a gorgeous art gallery situated in Hobart, Tasmania, embodying a truly enormous amount of mega bucks its founder made from it.

As well as making Mona a host for all the music and art festivals (and containing one of the biggest and most majestic art galleries) Walsh hired the prominent architects to place the Mona Pavilions — a set of breathtaking private accommodations featuring a stunning view over the river, each apartment stocked with art pieces from the main Mona collection.

2. Casa Malca, Tulum, Mexico
Many hotels under a commitment to art hire an artist or art collector to help develop themselves and create an attractive image for tourists, Casa Malca, located in Tulum, Mexico, is a true expert in mixing hotel business and art sphere. Lio Malca is a New York based art gallery and its founding father has put a good part of his own private collection into this wonderful beachside villa. The complex includes a smaller version of KAWS’s signature Companion sculpture. The good part of the hotel stretches out right onto the Caribbean. Arrive there and see that every corner is literally saturated with art!

3. The Gramercy Park Hotel, New York City
Designed and decorated by a popular artist Julian Schnabel, the Gramercy Park Hotel is a real work of art in its own way. Still, the rotating contemporary art exposition, collected by its owner Aby Rosen, can easily rival any top-class gallery. Artworks from such world famous postures as Damian Hirst, Jean Basquiat and, of course, Andy Warhol are exhibited both in the apartments and in other places including bars and terraces.

4. Le Royal Monceau-Raffles Paris
A modern masterpiece in every sense with a wonderful chance to take your ease, this incredible art hotel in the heart of Paris contains works from its own collection in each room and suite, public area and even the garden, whether it is photography, hung art or immense installations.

You can also find a cozy in-house art gallery with an art bookstore. Julie Eugène guides guests showing and telling about the hotel’s collection, organizes private evening viewings at its galleries, and also can arrange studio classes with local painters right in the hotel for the guests to experience the life of an artist.

5. The Thief, Oslo
A prison island long time ago, Tjuvholmen (Norwegian for the Thiefs Island), now comprises some of Norway’s best local and world art pieces. Giving a tired yet contented guest somewhere to lay his head in this art sanctuary, which displays individual pieces from established international as well as the local artists, the hotel suggest no less than 118 comfortable rooms.

6. The Rome Cavalieri, Rome
With a wide range of artworks - from French imperial period furnishings and other royal artifacts (including Marie Antoinette’s dressing table) to rare tapestries, this palatial hotel is packed to the rafters with different ancient treasures. Go for an excursion led by an on-site art guide and see the crib used for Napoleon’s little son, accompanied by Andy Warhol’s “Dollar Signs” along with Giambattista Tiepolo’s breathtaking paintings presented in the hotel’s lobby. The owner does not withhold the amount of money he spent on all the art pieces at auction that is the largest in Italian history.
