The Faces of Hospitality: Five very creepy pieces of hotel art

by admin on August 25, 2009

If nothing else, some of the quirkiest, most striking artwork we’ve seen so far – whether it’s a piece hand-picked to complement a lobby’s trendster vibe or a photo boldly displayed above a fluffy bed to lend a bit of wacky-coolness to a guestroom – adds personality. But, uh, we’d advise hotels to air on the side of caution when it comes to maxing out the quirk factor. Delightful and whimsical can easily become “creepy” and “hilarious” when real people have to sleep in close proximity to some of this stuff.

Observe. Today’s theme: faces.
