I did not stay here--I just visited the hotel to see the art. It was everywhere! Several exhibit rooms were downstairs, and art was in the halls, on the main floor, and in the bar. Intriguing and moving.

This is a museum within a hotel. Stopped by to see on the recommendation of a friend. Very unique and modern art. The restrooms in the lobby are a must see!

Both the museum and restaurant are excellent. We are lucky to have a place like this in a city this size.
