The Blackman Hotel is very different from the other two Art Series Hotels, The Olsen and The Cullen. It is more dark and melancholy, with many of the paintings by Charles Blackman based on Alice in Wonderland and school kids. The hotel feels mysterious, with black and silver rabbits around the hotel and paintings of people with dark eyes and illuminated hands, depicting Blackman's blind ex-wife.
Rooms in The Blackman are contemporary and most have a balcony, while all have an ipod dock, a kitchenette, wireless internet, and a flat screen TV. Like the other two Art Series Hotels, this luxurious hotel also has a gym. The Blackman also boasts two new restaurants, one is a French patisserie cafe and the other a traditional Italian restaurant.
