Princess Named For “Magnificent Art Collection”

August 31, 2022

The Hamilton Princess & Beach Club has been named by Historic Hotels Worldwide as having one of 2022′s top 25 “most magnificent art collections.”

A spokesperson said, “Many of the hotels highlighted here exhibit the most magnificent art collections found at historic hotels, and many are committed to supporting art movements and diversity in art.

“Hotels of Historic Hotels Worldwide view their art collections as an expression of their hospitality and community values, many collecting with the aim of supporting local or national heritage preservation and local artists. Above all, this is art that is meant to be enjoyed by all who visit. These art collections can be viewed and experienced in furniture, paintings, sculpture, augmented reality, textiles, tablets, fountains, and even some hotel buildings that are considered stand-alone works of art.”

Regarding the Hamilton Princess, the company said, “The art collection of the Hamilton Princess Hotel & Beach Club, A Fairmont Managed Hotel in Hamilton, Bermuda is remarkable. Inside the palatial pink hotel–established in 1885 and inducted into Historic Hotels Worldwide in 2018–is a renovated, contemporary space with artworks from some of the great names in modern art: Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, and René Magritte.

“These innovators, who challenged perceptions of art, laid the foundation for a hotel collection that has embraced the Pop and Op art movements through to postmodernism. Guests and visitors can walk through the hotel and its grounds, surrounded by the works of those earlier luminaries as well as late-20th and early-21st century artists such as Shepard Fairey, Andy Warhol, Yayoi Kusama, and Keith Allen Haring.

“The art collection is active; new works are mounted or moved often, emphasizing that the hotel is an alternative gallery space. Hamilton Princess & Beach Club curates and arranges the works in a meaningful way, to convey meaning within modern art, while creating a memorable experience for guests and visitors to the hotel.

“Complimentary guided tours through the lobby and public spaces are offered every Saturday from 10 a.m.-11 a.m. for hotel guests. The hotel recommends guests reserve a place on the tour in advance with the front desk.”
