Painted Rooms – Hotel des Arts!

Looks like I’m late on this one, sorry. Here’s what’s really good… A boutique hotel with about 51 rooms in downtown SF hosts events throughout the year where new emerging talent is commissioned to paint given rooms within the hotel to their liking. Pretty fresh concept. They keep a clean minimal look in the hotel itself, very gallery in nature, clean sharp furniture too so as not to distract from the art… The whole concept is beautiful. They also featured a new favorite artist of mine, Tim Gaskin, at the last event they had. Super cheap rooms too… Nothing over $150 if I read correct and some rooms under $100?! Wow. Thanks to Sally for the info on this!
