Accor has announced that it is bringing the Art Series brand to Western Australia. The new hotel is expected to open in October, and will be the ninth hotel in the Art Series.
The 250-room project is being developed at 900 Hay Street, the site of the the historic musical instrument shop Musgroves Music, which dates back to 1922.
As with other hotels in the series, the Art Series Perth will be decorated in the style of a contemporary artist. As yet, the artist has not been announced. Even so, the Art Series Perth will be decorated in the style of the chosen artist. This will include furnishings, artworks and prints reflecting the style of the artist’s work adorning every corner of the property.

In terms of facilities, the hotel will be home to a new international food and beverage destination, serving Mediterranean cuisine and the city’s best cocktails. The venue will be centred around the hotel’s pool area, located on level one, directly above Hay Street.
The Art Series Hotels came under the Accor umbrella following the acquisition of the Mantra group. At this point, the hotels do not participate in the loyalty programs, so there are no status benefits on offer.
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.
The hotel is currently undergoing an extensive internal fit-out and remains targeted for completion in September 2019.
Further details, including the hotel’s namesake artist, will be released in the coming months.
The Art Series portfolio includes a range of hotels, mostly on the eastern seaboard. Hotels include The Olsen, South Yarra; The Blackman, St Kilda Road; The Cullen, Prahan; The Larwill, Parkville; The Chen, Box Hill in Melbourne.
Other hotels include The Watson in Walkerville, South Australia and The Johnson and The Fantauzzo in Brisbane, Queensland.
