Following the commencement of construction in November 2017, the tower has rapidly emerged as an iconic landmark of the Perth skyline, thanks to the development’s visionary design elements and beautiful aesthetics.Dedicated to Australia’s contemporary artists, the fundamental design concept of the 250-room Art Series hotel will draw inspiration from its incoming namesake artist, with custom contemporary furnishings and original artworks and prints adorning the walls and halls of the hotel.
In another first for the state, the art-inspired hotel will also be home to a chic new international food and beverage destination, serving Mediterranean cuisine and the city’s best cocktails. The venue will be centred around the hotel’s stunning pool area on level one, directly above Hay Street.
Accor chief operating officer Pacific, Simon McGrath, says the opening of this hotel will mark the arrival of Art Series Hotels in Western Australia and represents the Group’s strategic direction to grow the brand. 'This announcement reflects the continued expansion and evolution of Australia’s only boutique hotel brand creating art inspired experiences for guests,' says McGrath.
'This Art Series hotel will be a truly world-class asset, which will help underpin a broader economic contribution to Perth “This major new asset will support the local tourism industry and create new jobs, which are both so vital to Perth and Western Australia.'
The new-build, full-service hotel will appeal to both business and leisure travellers with 250 stylish guest rooms, a signature restaurant with terrace, bar and lounge, ground floor café, swimming pool, gymnasium and a function room.
The hotel is currently undergoing an extensive internal fit-out and remains targeted for completion in September 2019.
