There’s no denying that the Howard Street Wharves have been the talk of Brisbane lately. Mr Percivals and Felon’s Brewing Co. anyone? To top off the already awesome line-up at the newest entertainment and lifestyle destination, Howard Street Wharves has just announced its latest addition to the precinct: an Art Series Hotel!


As the eighth Art Series property, the hotel will join the already-operating The Johnson Hotel in Spring Hill. This $60 million hotel, titled The Fantauzzo, is a collaboration with Australian contemporary artist Vincent Fantauzzo and is set to be carved into the cliff under the Story Bridge. But don’t worry, the hotel won’t stick out like a sore thumb – the exterior will feature neutral tones to blend in with the cliff. The modern hotel will feature six-storeys with 166 rooms which will all be decked out with original artworks and fabulous giclée prints. It will also offer guests beautiful views of the Brisbane river at their rooftop pool, a gym, a bar, and several conference rooms.

Chief Operating Officer of AccorHotels Pacific, Simon McGrath, said Art Series Hotels have a clear and distinct direction since they are the only Australian hotels inspired by art.

“Art Series Hotels is celebrated for offering guests a unique art-inspired hotel experience like no other,” he said. “The stunning new flagship hotel at Howard Smith Wharves is a strong sign of Accor’s belief in the much-loved brand and will kick start our plans for future growth across Australia and New Zealand.”
