We planned on going to Bentonville to see Crystal Bridges as a day trip from Ft. Smith, AR. Plans changed and we chose to stay the night before going to the Museum. This was a great find! I would definitely go back just to stay at the hotel. The art was amazing, the room was comfortable, quirky and luxurious. It was a very pleasant surprise to find such a sophisticated place in NW Arkanasas.
Dinner at The Hive (in house restaurant) was excellent and reasonably priced. Loved the farm to table menu with the house-made pickles and other condiments. The servers were friendly and efficient, knowing the menu well.
The lobby is filled with ,modern art and sculpture which is rotated approximately every 6 months The exhibit that was installed when we stayed was very thought provoking. There is also different art in the rooms and on each floor. The elevator is only accessible with a room key card so the public cannot be on the guest floors. One of the most fun aspects were the large green penguins that traveled around the hotel. When we arrived on our floor after dinner, two of them were waiting outside of another guest's room.
The rooms are very comfortable, shower is great and toiletries are sold in the gift shop. Robes were an added touch. We loved the whole experience
