Expert Review

Melbourne is rolling out six Art Series Hotels through 2011, each touting a name and design scheme inspired by a famous Australian artist. The group’s second property, The Olsen (named after landscape painter John Olsen), debuted in April 2010 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.
