Welcoming its first guests last week (Oct 01), the 250-room colourful and soulful hotel is an open invitation of hospitality and discovery and promises to inspire guests with ‘the art of dreaming big’.
Inspired by the powerful multicultural portraiture of renowned Australian big wall street artist, Matt Adnate, the hotel features one of the world’s largest ‘mega murals’ – a monumental artwork spanning 25 storeys; the largest ever painted by Adnate and the tallest mural in the Southern Hemisphere.
Beyond earning Adnate a place in the record books, the real purpose of the hotel’s sky-high external mural is to highlight Perth’s cultural history and community.
The mega mural, which took Matt one month to complete, features three large-scale portraits – including the face of a Noongar man, an Indian woman and a Mediterranean woman – all created with spray paint.
Guests will also feel greeted with awe-inducing artwork and detail from namesake artist Adnate around every corner of the hotel.
In the lobby, two original canvases and a large-scale mural above the hotel’s main staircase welcome guests, while 650 giclée prints of 30 of Adnate’s most-recognised works adorn the walls and halls of the 27-storey hotel.
Adjacent to the hotel, Adnate has also created a spectacular 50-metre-long laneway mural.
“Our collection of Art Series hotels transcends the traditional hotel experience by masterfully uniting Australia’s contemporary art culture with a boutique hospitality experience,” said Accor Chief Operating Officer Pacific, Simon McGrath.
“The Adnate is a seamless combination of art, design and functionality. It’s a powerful representation of contemporary creativity, with connected and inspiring spaces for guests to discover. We’re so excited to share this stunning property with guests visiting Perth from other parts of Western Australia, interstate and overseas,” he said.
The striking $90 million landmark hotel also features a gymnasium and the Miami-style Hyde Perth Kitchen + Cocktails (opening to the public in mid-October), which hugs a centrepiece outdoor heated pool area on level one of the hotel.
Adnate’s artwork also takes centre stage in all Studio King and Studio Twin rooms with design-inspired, boutique interiors and reproductions of the artists most recognised works, complemented by a purpose-made, canvas inspired bed runner.
A selection of Studio King and Studio Twin rooms can also be joined to create a Two Bedroom Interconnecting studio suite.
The Adnate is the first Art Series hotel dedicated to street art and heralds the arrival of the Art Series brand in Western Australia – Australia’s only boutique hotel brand creating art-inspired experiences for guests.
Signature art experiences at The Adnate also include the brand’s famous art tours, in-room art channels and art libraries to get up close and personal with Adnate’s work. Branded courtesy cars and Lekker bicycles will be available to explore all that Perth has to offer and further afield.
The Adnate is Accor’s ninth Art Series hotel in Australia, complementing the brand’s existing hotel portfolio – Melbourne hotels The Olsen, South Yarra; The Blackman, St Kilda Road; The Cullen, Prahan; The Larwill, Parkville; The Chen, Box Hill, along with The Watson in Walkerville, South Australia and The Johnson and The Fantauzzo in Brisbane, Queensland.
The Adnate is located at 900 Hay Street, Perth, Western Australia
