SHERMAN’S EXCLUSIVE

The Luxury
Melbourne is rolling out six Art Series Hotels through next year, each touting a name and design scheme inspired by a famous Australian artist. The group’s flagship property, The Olsen (named after landscape painter John Olsen), debuted in April on boutique-lined Chapel Street. Its 14 stories feature nearly 500 works from Olsen and 229 luminous guest rooms outfitted with sleek designer furnishings, art libraries, and full kitchenettes. An in-house art curator is available for tours. A duo of restaurants, a fitness center, and a day spa round out the offerings; its pool, among the world’s largest glass-bottom ones, cantilevers over bustling Chapel Street.

The Value
Readers who book stays of two nights or more through March 31 will reap an exclusive 20 percent savings, which amounts to $160/night with the reduction.

The Catch At press time, the hotel’s Steer restaurant was not yet open.
