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.
Perth, Australia – Accor announced it will open its ninth Art Series hotel in Perth’s CBD in October 2019, heralding the arrival of the Art Series brand in Western Australia.
Accor Chief Operating Officer Pacific, Simon McGrath, said 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,” said Mr McGrath. “This major new asset will support the local tourism industry and create new jobs, which are both so vital to Perth and Western Australia.”
Developed by George Atzemis, the $90 million, 27-storey Art Series hotel is located on 900 Hay Street, Perth. Its design concept 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. Its namesake artist will be released in the coming months, according to Accor.
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.
Owner and Developer George Atzemis said he’s thrilled to partner with the Art Series brand. “The brand has great synergies with the quality and standard we strive for in all our developments. There is no doubt this iconic hotel will be a welcome and significant addition to the Perth city landscape.”
The new-build, full-service hotel will appeal to both business and leisure travellers with 250 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.
The Art Series portfolio includes Melbourne hotels The Olsen, South Yarra; The Blackman, St Kilda Road; The Cullen, Prahan; The Larwill, Parkville; The Chen, Box Hill, along with The Watson in Walkerville, South Australia and The Johnson and The Fantauzzo in Brisbane, Queensland.
