SLEEP IN: The world’s latest checkout returns to Art Series Hotel

There is nothing we love more than sleeping in.

Except maybe coffee, cake, and dogs. But sleep still ranks pretty high.

Anyway, the Art Series Hotel is making sleep-ins a whole lot easier, with the return of the World’s Latest Checkout.

Starting September 19th, the hotel will offer guests the chance to stay for free – as long as no one else has booked their room.

A world-first when offered in 2012, the initiative all depends on how full the hotel is for the night ahead or when the next guest checks in.

Whether it’s to stay curled up in an Art Series Signature bed, to enjoy a leisurely lunch at one of the adjoining restaurants or a pampering spa experience, guests can call reception between 8 am and 10 am to request changing their check out time to 1 pm, 3 pm, early evening, or even the next day.

If no one is booked into the room, guests can make the most of their getaway and continue to enjoy the art inspired surroundings for longer. And it doesn’t stop there, they can keep trying their luck each morning until the next guest checks in.

“The World’s Latest Checkout will run at all seven Art Series Hotels for the next three months. We are thrilled once again to be delivering this innovative and unique concept to market,” Mantra Group’s Executive Director of Sales, Marketing, Revenue and Distribution Luke Moran said.

Our fave thing about Thursdays? Hotel wraps. Oh, and the actual wrap we get to eat for lunch. So this is our second favourite wrap of the day.
