The Blackman is the third of Melbourne’s celebrated Art Series Hotels, offering an unparalleled celebration of Australian art from the comfort of stylish self-contained suites.

From the moment you step into the lit-glass lobby, covered in gorgeous framed artworks, it is obvious that The Blackman is extraordinary. Created in honour of the Australian artist of the same name, the hotel affords guests a unique insight into Charles Blackman’s Alice In Wonderland series from the 1950s. Impeccable curation gives the interior the same air of mystery and magic that infuses Blackman’s work. Muted hues splashed with rich red upholstery complement each room’s selection of artwork. A personal art library and iPod docking station add contemporary flourishes to a practical array of kitchen facilities, while each minibar is stocked with locally sourced treats.

Dining facilities at the Blackman include popular city brunch spot Fleur Depot de Pain. In the evenings, the sleek, Foong and Sormann-designed Classico restaurant buzzes with a stylish clientele sampling authentic Italian antipasti from the open salumeria. While the luxurious, signature bedding is an undeniable highlight, it is the quirky details that will make your stay. Keep your eyes peeled for the White Rabbit, painted dashing through the corridors where you least expect.
