The Henry Jones Art Hotel is located on Hobart's waterfront and is Australia's first dedicated art hotel. Once a jam factory, and dating back to 1804, the original building has been transformed into an enthralling first class hotel - designed by award-winning architects, Morris-Nunn & Associates.
The hotel is furnished with over 300 artworks and creates an environment in which people can experience art in a new and more immediate way - with a continuously changing exhibition, the hotel is a wonderful fusion of art, heritage, tradition and nature.
The hotel houses 56 rooms and suites, all unique and furnished with contemporary art. In stark contrast with the art, the rooms are wonderfully modern. Clean lines and contemporary touches abound, whilst most are equipped with lavish king or queen size beds accompanied by exotic silk covers, European style stainless steel and translucent glass bathrooms, and magnificent sandstone walls.
Types of Rooms
At the Henry Jones Art Hotel, no room is the same. Push open the door to a world of contrasts where old meets new. Indulgent splashes of red weave with industrial rawness. Grand beams of rough-hewn timber whisper of the past, framing art of today. A Tasmanian artist might challenge or confront. Another may become your new favorite. Those hand-cut stone walls, take a closer look, each convict was invited to mark his own, their signatures individually wrap the hotel.
