The Henry Jones Art Hotel is located on Hobart’s waterfront and is Australia’s first dedicated art hotel. The site in which it is located dates back to 1804 and the former jam factory has been transformed into an enthralling first class hotel designed by award-winning architects, Morris-Nunn Associates.
The hotel is furnished with over 400 Tasmanian artworks and presents an environment in which people can experience art in a new and more immediate way. With a continuously changing exhibition, the hotel has been created to present itself as a fusion of art, heritage, tradition and nature. Exterior and interior space present art as part of the Hotel’s function beauty.
The hotel houses 56 rooms and suites all uniquely different and furnished with the hotel’s history and contemporary art as the forefront of each space. To complement the most distinctive and unique Hobart accommodation, its restaurants and bars highlight the best of Tasmania’s fine food and beverage produce for a truly unique experience.
Right throughout the property you will be fascinated by the unexpected combination of the antique and ultra modern in every form.
The hotel has won a number of awards for design, accommodation, food beverage and service since opening its doors in 2004 and aims to provide all guests with a truly unique experience.
