6 Boutique Hotels Owned by Famous Musicians and Infused With Their Style

Actors and other celebrities opening hotels is nothing new—from Robert De Niro’s Nobu brand to Hugh Jackman’s Gwinganna Health Resort on Australia’s Gold Coast. But rockers seem to have their own riff when it comes to the hospitality industry.

These six micro, design-oriented properties of under 100 rooms are in places as varied as central Wisconsin and Stockholm, and all are owned by musicians. Many successfully weave in partnerships with other musicians as well as designers, and all feature a distinct aesthetic. Think Mats Theselius armchairs in the guest rooms at an ABBA member’s hotel.

And while COVID-19 has changed the way we travel in recent months, there are still socially distanced road trips to be had. At the very least, you may want to add some of these properties to your post-vaccine bucket list.
