According to this study, there are over 700,000 hotels and resorts worldwide. Hotels must be inviting, entrancing, and extremely experiential to encourage visitors to stay and stay again. They must transport visitors to a different world where they can dive in and forget all about their regular lives.
Art is truly what gives hotels an ability to seduce their visitors into the worlds of which they have curated. There are endless possibilities for hotels to explore, from an urban street setting, to a 1920s Deco party, to a futuristic space odyssey, and anything in-between.
Check out these four amazing hotels utilizing art to create immensely impactful experiences for their visitors.
Urban Hotel Art
Art by Tilt in the Au Vieux Panier Hotel in Marseille, France
The Au Vieux Panier Hotel is a great place to explore urban art because every year, the hotel commissions new artists to create a new work of art within five of its rooms. Year after year, there will be a new, wildly urban experience to enjoy.
Marseille is known for its quirky street art. Sitting on the seaside of the south of France, this artistic scene stands out beautifully against the bright blue waters and soft-hued buildings. The city's architecture is covered in crazy colors and explosive shapes, which is a stark contrast to much of the rest of France. It's a street art lover's dream, and absolutely worth a visit.
Art Deco Hotel Art
The surrounding parks between these two luscious resorts in Antibes, France are decorated with 13 sumptuous Art Deco-themed figures from Spanish artist Manolo Valdés. Rêverie means to daydream, so his work is perfect for these historic hotels which focus on luxurious relaxation and contemplation. Valdés' work is inspired from great masters of the era including Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, and Constantin Brancusi.
This open-air exhibit transports visitors to a unique world of bold geometric forms, bright colors, and exotic opulence. Pair that with the grandeur of the hotels, and you have an artistically indulgent experience that you will never forget.
Space Odyssey Hotel Art
The Gold Coast Hotel is a space-themed hotel in Hong Kong, and it is out of this world. Truly, we've never seen anything like it before. Filled with galaxy-themed murals, paintings, sculptures, and dimensionals, this hotel has curated a very magical experience for its visitors through art.
