Travel Tip: Hotels with Great Art Collections

Share on: Share on Google+

People are always willing to travel to see great art, so why not stay at a hotel that’s practically an art gallery in its own right?

Check out the Rosewood San Miguel de Allende in Mexico. This area is known as an artist haven, so it’s no surprise that a hotel would have its own gallery. The Otto Gallery is opening in the hotel this spring and will focus on works from Mexican and international artists.

Maybe you’ve heard of the 21C Museum Hotel in Louisville, Kentucky. Well, their art hotel concept is so successful they’ve opened two more: in Bentonville, Arkansas, and in Cincinnati.

Meanwhile, art is everywhere in the Conrad Indianapolis: The Long-Sharp Gallery has everything from Dali to Warhol, and contemporary artists are on display in the hotel’s second floor.

The Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park London has a partnership with Halcyon gallery, with works from the masters inside the Royal Suite that are actually for sale. But if that’s not in your budget, just ask to see the hotel’s meeting space, which has original masters on display from the National Maritime Museum.
