Art Series Hotels is set to open its first new property since it joined the AccorHotels family.

The $60 million project at Howard Smith Wharves, Brisbane will open in March 2019 and will be the brand's eighth in total.

The 166 room, six storey hotel will be situated close to the Story Bridge.

The brand draws its design inspiration from contemporary Australian artists and includes custom contemporary furnishings and original artworks.

Launched in 2009, it was privately owned by the Deague family until it was acquired by Mantra last year.

AccorHotels Pacific Chief Operating Officer Simon McGrath said the area’s transformation into an entertainment and lifestyle precinct will be important for the project.

“Art Series Hotels is celebrated for offering guests a unique art-inspired hotel experience like no other,” he said.

“The stunning new flagship hotel at Howard Smith Wharves is a strong sign of Accor’s belief in the much-loved brand and will kick start our plans for future growth across Australia and New Zealand.”

Deague Group CEO Will Deague said guests will be able to make reservations from November 30.

“As one of Australia’s fastest-growing capital cities with a burgeoning art culture, Brisbane continues to remain a major focus for the Group,” he said.

“With an increasing demand for accommodation, we are excited to introduce a second dedicated art led offering as part of the city’s expansion and are confident this luxury boutique development at Howard Street Wharves will only entice even more visitors to Brisbane.”
