The Henry Jones Art Hotel -- Australia’s first dedicated art hotel and one of only a few art hotels in the world – stands proudly amidst some of Hobart’s oldest waterfront warehouses. An original 19th century industrial heritage site and former jam factory, this unassuming building has since been transformed into a stunning hotel with rough-hewn timber frameworks and hand cut sandstone walls serving as the backdrop to more than 500 works of art showcasing the work of Tasmania’s finest visual artists. The juxtaposition of ultra-modern design and contemporary art with such industrial grit makes The Henry Jones Art Hotel a work of art in and of itself.
The Henry Jones Art Hotel consists of 56 individually designed rooms and suites, including the art nouveau fashioned H. Jones Suite, the immaculate Peacock Terrace, and the Japanese-infused Oriental Suites. Rooms feature subdued trapeze lighting, translucent glass bathrooms, Molton Brown bath amenities, Kohler bath spas, and private balconies overlooking the colorful Sullivan’s Cove and the city of Hobart, stretching toward the lush foothills of Mount Wellington.
The Henry Jones Art Hotel is the opposite of a standard square-box hotel, with nooks and crannies to explore at every turn. Architects Morris-Nunn and Associates specifically designed the hotel so that every space could serve as a canvas for artistic expression. Whether painting, prints, sculpture, or design, guests will find that art is simply an intrinsic part of experience, environment, and culture here. Award-winning restaurants and bars are also available. The hotel’s flagship restaurant, Henry’s Restaurant, features a distinctive Tasmanian menu by acclaimed Executive Chef Andre Kropp, while the IXL Long Bar provides live music and incredible cocktails by award-winning mixologist Niall Maurici.
Guests will enjoy the many amenities, including a gift boutique, fitness center, and an open internal courtyard with a large glass covered atrium. The prime waterfront location also provides instant access to some of Hobart’s finest attractions, including the Salamanca entertainment district and the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery. Any stay at The Henry Jones Art Hotel offers a luxurious and innovative opportunity to engage directly with Tasmania’s unique cultural heritage.Request Information
