If you’ve followed Repeat Traveller for a while, you’ll know we have a slight obsession with street art – always keeping a lookout for that unexpected masterpiece whenever we travel.
One news item we’ve heard today has us seriously considering a quick trip down to Melbourne, despite it being winter and Melbourne being unnaturally cold at this time of year, is a Graffiti themed hotel room located right in the heart of the city.
Inspired by the local graffiti scene, DoubleTree by Hilton Melbourne – Flinders Street has launched a limited time only Graffiti Loft themed room that shatters any preconceptions you may have of the Hilton hotel brand. Spaces are limited though; first in best dressed.
Partnering with local street artists 90 Degrees, DoubleTree has crafted a bespoke room filled with original artworks, colourful murals, tagged furniture, and graffitied bed linen. Throwing caution to the wind, they even have upturned milk crates as bed side tables.
Guests staying in the room – available from from 8 July 2017 to 13 August 2017 – will also enjoy a specially designed edible graffiti snack (though we personally don’t see the graffiti connection) and be entertained with a collection of street-art themed DVD’s and books.
Located opposite the iconic Flinders Street station, DoubleTree by Hilton Melbourne – Flinders Street is conveniently positioned minutes from several of the city’s best street art laneways, namely Hosier, Degraves and AC/DC lanes.
The ‘Graffiti Loft’ package starts from $259.
