Guest rooms will transform into a ‘Graffiti Loft’ with local street artists 90 Degrees.
MELBOURNE, VIC - DoubleTree by Hilton Melbourne - Flinders Street has launched the "Graffiti Loft" package, offering guests an underground experience of Melbourne's vibrant street art scene from the comfort of their hotel room.
Melbourne is recognised as one of the leading street art capitals of the world. Graffiti is not only engrained in the city's cultural identity, it is also one of the key attractions for locals and travellers alike. Located in the heart of the CBD and opposite the iconic Flinders Street station, DoubleTree by Hilton Melbourne - Flinders Street is only minutes away from many of the city's best street art laneways, namely Hosier, Degraves and AC/DC lanes.
Collaborating with local street artists 90 Degrees, DoubleTree by Hilton Melbourne - Flinders Street is bringing the cities' laneways into guest rooms, where guests will be able to immerse themselves in Melbourne's creative art scene. The room will be packed with Instagram-worthy moments; complete with original artwork, colourful murals, tagged furniture and graffitied bed linens. Guests will also be able to enjoy a specially-crafted(?) edible graffiti snack and be entertained with a collection of street-art themed DVD's and books.
90 Degrees was born in 2013 with a mission to create graffiti with impact. Daniel Wenn, founder and creative lead of the company, has had a lifelong love affair with street art. His first work dates back to the late 1980s. "I remember when I was younger, seeing graffiti on the train into the city and wondered who did it and how they did it," said Wenn. As a graffiti artist with a preferred style of traditional characters and lettering, he has worked extensively both domestically and abroad.
"Our curated room series has been a fantastic success. It captivates our guests with a seasonal experience that also supports a local Australian brand. We are excited to continue the momentum this winter with 90 Degrees and the Graffiti Loft," said Garry Lucas, general manager, DoubleTree by Hilton Melbourne - Flinders Street. "90 Degrees has brought the celebrated Melbourne laneway scene into the hotel. Our guests are able to relish in this vibrant side of Melbourne's culture, from morning to night."
Starting from $259 per night, The "Graffiti Loft" package includes accommodation for two adults in a King Flinders Street Station View room. The price also includes buffet breakfast for two, an edible graffiti snack and a collection of street-art themed DVD's and books to enjoy.
