No longer are hotels simply a place for guests to rest their head, with the popularity and number of art hotels growing and more showcasing masterpieces and offering cultural experiences for guests to enjoy throughout their stay.

Expedia has put together a new infographic showcasing nine of the best art hotels around the world, detailing each one’s art collection including the number of pieces housed, the mediums exhibited and the type of art or movement associated with the hotel.

The infographic also features arty facts about the city that are home to these hotels. They include Budapest’s Bohem Art Hotel and its reflection of an artist’s bohemian lifestyle, to the XVA Art Hotel in Dubai which pays homage to Middle Eastern art.

Kasha Dubaniewicz, project manager at Expedia, said: “Today, hotels are much more than a basic place to bed down for the night. They are fully-fledged experiences in themselves, and form an integral, inspirational part of a traveller’s holiday. We no longer have to go to a museum to enjoy a cultural experience — we can stay at an art hotel instead, waking up to a masterpiece each morning. We hope our infographic will help cultural holidaymakers plan the art trip of a lifetime.”
