Hotels for Art Lovers
Art collectors Laura Lee Brown and Steve Wilson set out to revitalize their hometown of Louisville, Kentucky, by turning five abandoned warehouses into a 90-room hotel with a 9,000-square-foot exhibition space and a restaurant (above). Their second 21C Museum Hotel opened in Cincinnati in 2012, and their next, near the Crystal Bridges Museum in Bentonville, Arkansas, opens this spring.
