I just love Melbourne, Great fashion,food and coffee. I have to give it to them they sure knows how to make their city look so stylish! We stay at The Artseries hotels call The Blackman. It is beautiful and very modern. The infamous icon of australian art Charles Blackman is being show case here. I have been told that there will be a following of boutique hotels showcasing other Australian artist. Charles Blackman blessed him with better health but he should be very proud of how beautiful and classy this hotel has become, honoring his legacy.
I really love the fact that as a guest you are given knowledge and history of the Artist from an in house programs. Every floor from foyer to the room you have the privilege to appreciate the talent and the quirkiness of the Artis fascination with the “Rabbit and Alice in the wonderland”! Overall I really like this hotel, the beds was comfortable and stylish decor will make a difference to a most enjoyable stay! The bonus thing is that you get a feeling like you are sleeping in a gallery and most important how amazing australian art is! Lets hope Sydney picks up on some trendy tips from Melbourne. Can you imagine a trendy modern boutique hotel with everything about Norman Lindsay and his work and influences. That would be just fantastic! We can only hope!
