Set right on Hobart’s waterfront in a row of converted sandstone warehouses dating back to 1825, the Henry Jones Art Hotel captures the history and wonder of a bygone era and blends it perfectly with modern comforts and creative expression.
Comprising 56 first-class suites, a restaurant, bar and function rooms, the Henry Jones is Australia’s first dedicated Art Hotel, showcasing work by some of Tasmania’s finest visual artists. Guest rooms and public spaces exhibit original artworks which are available for purchase.
The accommodation takes in luxury fittings such as king or queen size beds with exotic silk covers and ottomans. Most rooms are equipped with European style stainless steel and translucent glass bathrooms surrounded by the rich sandstone walls of the era, and feature harbour or mountain views, while others overlook the stunning glass atrium revealing glimpses of the historic jam factory interior.
The Peacock Terrace and H. Jones Suites tell the vibrant history of early European settlement in Tasmania, and the Oriental Suites feature the rich legacy of trade between Van Diemen’s Land and the East.
Hidden within the hotels walls is Henry’s Harbourside restaurant, boasting culinary Olympian Andre Kropp’s interpretations on Tasmania’s freshest produce.
Complemented by new standards of service and technology, The Henry Jones embodies a distinctive balance of quality and understated style. The Henry Jones represents the modern appeal of hip hotels – cunning industrial edge to minimalist style. Unexpected combinations of art and architecture, amidst seductive echoes of a rich industrial past, define The Henry Jones experience.
The Henry Jones Art Hotel has received national and international acclaim including two Australian Tourism Awards and recognition by Conde Nast Traveler on its Gold List in 2009 and 2010.
