One of the three Art Series Hotels in Melbourne, The Olsen sits in Melbourne's most esteemed shopping and entertainment quarter of Chapel Street in South Yarra, just 5.7 kilomtres from the CBD.
The property's atmosphere and décor is influenced, and full of, the abstract, figurative and subtle works of its namesake, the landscape artist Dr John Olsen. It offers guests the choice of 229 beautifully appointed five-star suites, each with 42"LCD TVs, kitchenettes, WiFi and plenty of natural light. There are also residential suites for business- or extended-stays in Melbourne and corporate relocations. See also The Blackman and The Cullen hotels.
Many suites feature stunning cityscape views and private balconies as well as Olsen's artwork and guests are afforded full access to Spoonbill and Steer, the hotel's restaurants, as well as a state of the art gym, bar, day spa, outdoor heated pool, valet and undercover parking.
To more easily explore the city, its icons, sights and its surrounds, The Olsen also offers bicycle, scooter and Smart Car hire. The CBD and must-sees such as the MCG, Federation Square, the Botanic Gardens and the laneways are also very easily accessed via train and tram links from Chapel Street and Toorak Road.
