If you love being surrounded by beautiful art but can’t stand museum crowds, a stay at Conrad Indianapolis might be just the ticket for you. The hotel’s under-the-radar collection of “art suites,” aptly named The Collection, boast luxury accommodations with a side of priceless art.
Each of The Collection’s suites is dedicated to a particular artistic movement: Modernism, Surrealism, Contemporary, and Pop Art, with virtually every aspect of their design—from the furniture and fabrics down to the complimentary bottles of wine—true to the period. The culmination of an eight-year collaboration between the Conrad and world-renowned Long-Sharp Gallery in Indianapolis, the suites feature original, signed works by Salvador Dalí, Pablo Picasso, Andy Warhol, Russell Young, and more, as well as distinguished furnishings by Eero Saarinen, Jonathan Adler, and Philippe Starck.
Encompassing an entire floor of the hotel, guests literally step off the elevator and into a carefully curated world of art, with Gino Miles’ Transition sculpture setting the tone. The suites are part of a greater effort between the hotel and Long-Sharp Gallery to create a truly immersive art experience for guests, which includes a variety of revolving exhibitions on offer in the Conrad’s public spaces. Past exhibitions include a collection of works by Nelson Mandela—the first of its kind in the United States—and this fall, a collection of Andy Warhol’s early paper drawings will be displayed for the first time to the public.
Rates for The Collection suites start at $699 per night. For more information, visit the Conrad Indianapolis website.
