Ahoy, art enthusiasts! While many think of modern hotels as perhaps the single worst place to see fine art (think prints thrown up on walls without any regard for placement, subject matter, etc.), there are in fact hotels whose focus is in fine art. These luxury hotels feature the work of memorable artists, bringing the museum feel to a residential space.
