Over the next few weeks I’m going to share tips I learned during my trip to New Zealand and Australia.
The best hotel we (my sister and I) stayed at in Australia was, by far, The Cullen : Art Series Hotel Group in Prahran, Melbourne. It’s a stunning hotel with famous Aussie Artist Adam Cullen’s work on every wall. I wasn’t familiar with his work before I went to OZ but I love it. It’s colorful, genuine, creepy and thought provoking. It was incredible to be surrounded by art that spurred my own creativity during our time in Melbourne (oh and there is a Banksy on the outside of the hotel!).
The staff are awesome! They were always finding us food when we had to work until 10:30 PM and still hadn’t had dinner or organizing transport for us or giving us advice on what to see and do in the neighborhood.
The rooms rock. This is the kind of hotel that pays such close attention to detail that everything you need is at your fingertips. Forgot your toothbrush? No worries here is a toiletry kit. Dirty laundry? Would you like us to do it or would you like to use our washer and dryers on each floor? Starving? Try one of our 2 awesome restaurants or cook for yourself with the fully equipped kitchen in your room.
Thank you The Cullen for making our time in Australia so enjoyable!
(Art around every corner, including the lobby here)
(If only every hotel had a box of candy, a hand written note and a canvas with paint waiting for you when you enter your room)
(Hanging out with Banksy)(This was the empowering quote you saw everytime you entered the hotel)
(Overall an oasis for creativity)
