The Adnate is the first Art Series hotel to open in Western Australia

Australia’s ninth Art Series hotel, The Adnate, has opened in Perth’s city centre, adjacent to the capital’s luxury shopping locale of King Street.

The 250-room, colourful hotel comes five months after the opening of The Fantauzzo in Brisbane, and is the first Art Series hotel to open in Western Australia. Accor purchased the previously independent Art Series Hotel Group in 2017.

“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,” Accor Chief Operating Officer Pacific, Simon McGrath said.

Inspired by the powerful, multicultural portraiture of renowned Australian big wall street artist, Matt Adnate, The Adnate is the first Art Series hotel dedicated to street art and features one of the world’s largest ‘mega murals’ – a monumental artwork spanning 25 storeys.

The mural – the largest ever painted by Adnate – is the tallest in the Southern Hemisphere and took Adnate one month to complete. It highlights Perth’s cultural history and community, featuring three large-scale portraits – including the face of a Noongar man, an Indian woman and a Mediterranean woman – all created with spray paint.

Adjacent to the hotel, Adnate has also created a spectacular 50-metre-long laneway mural.

The hotel’s namesake artist’s work is peppered throughout the property. 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.

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.

The striking $90 million landmark hotel also features a gymnasium and the Miami-style Hyde Perth Kitchen + Cocktails, which hugs a centrepiece outdoor heated pool area on level one of the hotel.

Signature art experiences at The Adnate 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.

To celebrate the opening of The Adnate, Art Series has released an opening special, which is from $179 per night.
