Henry Jones Art HotelAustralia’s first dedicated art hotel is also a hotbed of history. Set within Hobart’s oldest waterfront warehouses, which served as a jam factory from the 1890s to the 1970s and helped pull the seedy Sullivan’s Cove district out of poverty, the Henry Jones is a stylish blend of existing sandstone walls, wood beams, and tin roofing balanced with modern stainless-steel fixtures, glass bathrooms, and silk accents. More than 500 original paintings, prints, photos, and sculptures by some of Tasmania’s leading contemporary artists fill the property. In keeping with the city’s reputation as a food destination, the hotel is home to two restaurants (one centered on a wood-fired Asado grill), an all-day café, and a rough-luxe cocktail bar that makes an ideal pit-stop after an afternoon spent exploring Hunter Street’s 19th-century architecture and harbor views.

The ideal complement to a visit to MONA, this harbor-side hotel, which was once a jam factory, is close to the museum’s ferry launch and packed—in both its convivial public areas and its 56 industrial-chic rooms—with contemporary works of art.—From $200
