The Verdict

The Arts Series has done it again. After expanding with Larwill Studio in North Melbourne, they’ve unleashed a brand new boutique hotel, this time in Box Hill—and damn, will you look at that view.

The Chen is named for Chinese-Australian artist Zong Chen, whose gridded compositions and lively brushstrokes have gone on to influence dozens of contemporary artists. You’ll get a good squiz at some of his most famous canvases in The Chen’s light-filled lobby space, and of course most rooms come with signature prints on the walls.

The new hotel boasts over 100 open plan, self-contained suites, a rooftop pool and sundeck with wraparound city views (even if the city is a toy kingdom on the horizon), plus the usual fully-equipped gym and health spa, plus conference facilities if you’re planning on hosting an international summit.

The art vibes are strong with this one. The Art Series has included an in-house art library, plus a dedicated art channel on your room’s HDTV. Nice touch, that. And don’t forget you’ve got the best of Box Hill on your doorstep. Explore with the hotel’s Lekker bikes, or hire a Smart Car for the day and go touring. Whatever the itinerary, you’re gonna be well looked after.
