//MACQ 01, Tasmania
From US$192 per night
The architectural masterpiece of the MACq 01 in Hobart, Tasmania is Australia's first storytelling hotel. What makes it a 'storytelling hotel' you ask? Each of the 114 rooms features a unique Tasmanian, their stories borne from five distinct character traits - Colourful and Quirky, Hearty and Resilient, Curious and Creative, Grounded, Yet Exceptional and Fighting Believer. The stories are laced throughout the hotel - in the interior, the people, the reading material, hell, even the mini bar!
Room amenities are playful and relevant. The mini bar is stocked full of Tasmanian liquor, wine, beer, water, sweet treats and snacks. The robes are noteworthy - made from thick cotton jersey, they feel like a cross between a hoodie and a hug, complete with an historic map of the waterfront adorning the inside of the hood.
The design concepts for MACq 01 Hotel have been developed by interior designers Pike Withers, whose design objective was to create a curiosity and intrigue for what the story might be in each space, rather than a literal interpretation of it. The complex in which MACq 01 is situated has been developed by Tasmanian building firm, Vos Construction. The complex, which includes a few other tenancies, has cost approximately $36 million to build.
