• Stay At The Clarion Hotel in Exchange for Art

  • The Clarion Hotel in Sweden have announced that they will now be accepting artwork as payment for staying in one of their rooms. Their inspiration comes from the now closed Chelsea Hotel in New York, who had a similar agreement with well-known guests.

    Speaking about the new payment system, the marketing manager Tess Mattisson said "It all started with the fact that our general manager's grandfather was an artist… He actually had some of his work hanging in the Chelsea Hotel, and now that their hotel has closed down, the manager was so inspired that our hotel will continue the tradition."

    There is a catch however - you are only able to stay for two nights a year under this arrangement.

    • Nice idea to accept as a an alternative payment, this might sounds odd to you, but I think this idea worships art in a much way better than selling for art.

    • Interesting idea, but nothing to find about it on their website. Did it miss it?
