Boutique hotel in South Yarra, Prahran & Windsor

At the top end of Chapel St, steps from svelte South Yarra boutiques and cafes, this 224-suite property honours artist John Olsen. The painter's bold, raw artworks add verve to the open-plan, grey-and-silver rooms, each of which comes with handy kitchenette and sublimely comfortable AH Beard bed. Staff are attentive and the hotel’s glass-bottomed pool juts out over Chapel St.
