Hotels have really come a long way in the amenity department—business centers? More like wellness programs, bespoke cocktail programs, on-premise cars to borrow, and even personal butlers. But the biggest hotel amenity that has been on the rise? Art. And we’re not talking about Ikea prints. We’re talking full-on galleries, with many also having artist-in-residency programs to promote the appreciation of art and the appreciation of the city the hotel resides in. Here, a look at some of the best places in the U.S. to visit to get cultured without even leaving the place.
