8 Amazing Hotels Around the World That Double as Art Museums

More Art Hotels Around the World

Hotel Arts (Barcelona)

Described as a “true sanctuary among luxury beach hotels in Barcelona,” the Hotel Arts is celebrated for both its art-adorned walls and its recognizable architecture. Like many modern museums, the experimental exterior of the blue-glass-and-exposed-steel building perfectly matches the contemporary Spanish art that it houses, capturing the creative spirit of contemporary Catalonia.



Rome Cavalieri (Rome)

The Rome Cavalieri resort exhibits an eclectic range of art—including oil paintings, marble sculptures, period furniture, and even rare tapestries—that span centuries, countries, and artists. The collection features over 1,000 pieces and is on display in the hotel's grand lobby and beautiful hallways.



The Dolder Grand (Zurich)

Zurich's Dolder Grand perfectly pairs luxury with a love of art history. At nearly 100 years old, the hotel houses an impressive collection of art that includes work by Pop Art pioneer Andy Warhol, surrealist Salvador Dalí, multi-media master Damien Hirst, and other well-known modern and contemporary artists. In addition to its art, the hotel is admired for its cottage-inspired façade and avant-garde interiors.



Palace Hotel (Tokyo)

Located in the heart of Tokyo, the Palace Hotel takes the ‘art hotel' concept to new heights. In addition to offering weekly origami classes to guests, the hotel holds a diverse collection of Japanese art. “The eclectic mix runs the gamut,” the hotel's website states, “from a traditional ink wash painting that once hung in the original Palace Hotel to colorful abstracts by a Shanghainese artist, from indigenous rock sculptures to pencil sketches and contemporary laser-cut paper art.”



The ART Hotel (Denver)

Denver's aptly-named ART hotel exhibits exciting “works of art that grace two galleries, spill into the hallways and adorn every guest room.” Located in the city's art-filled Golden Triangle, the hotel fittingly features pieces by groundbreaking 20th and 21st century artists, including Leo Villareal and Larry Bell.
