Hilton Grafitti Loft Double Tree Flinders Street hotel James Banham

Hilton Hotels are doing something epic with Melbourne’s graffiti street art

Last year, the Hilton Hotel in Southwharf Melbourne turned it out by collaborating with Melbourne interiors gurus Sage & Clare to create a room that was truly stunning and really quite unique.

This year, they have done it again, taking the urban cool jungle that is the streets and laneways of Melbourne’s inner-city culture and turning it into a hotel room worth raving about.

By partnering with street art masters 90 Degrees, the Double Tree hotel by Hilton on Flinders Street has converted what is otherwise a run-of-the-mill space into something truly Instagram-worthy. See…?

They wanted to work with local talent to create a space where guests are able to immerse themselves in Melbourne’s creative art scene. The room is packed with Instagram worthy moments; complete with original artwork, colourful murals, tagged furniture and graffitied bed linen.

They have even taken it up a notch by including a specially designed eatable graffiti snack and entertained with a collection of street-art themed DVDs and books.

The people behind the art, 90 Degrees, have been going since 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,” he said.

Garry Lucas, general manager of DoubleTree by Hilton Melbourne said, “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. 90 Degrees has brought the celebrated Melbourne laneway scene into the room. Our guests are able to relish in this vibrant side of Melbourne’s culture, from morning to night.”
