Overview

Free cruiser bikes available for guest use
No pool or spa

If you're looking for something more than a hotel, then the 21c Museum Hotel is your answer: As its name suggests, this boutique hotel is also a museum. Actually, it is the first museum in North America dedicated to showcasing solely 21st century artwork. Recent guests loved the cool decor that permeates the hotel and appreciated that the artwork was spread throughout the property and not secluded to one room. Facilities, however, are few and far between. The 21c only has a fitness center and free cruiser bikes, but with the fitness center's life-size superhero suspended from the ceiling and the miles of wooded trails that jut out from the hotel, guests can get in a workout in style. Accommodations are more subdued, decorated in primarily white and featuring splashes of colorful, artistic accents, including throw pillows with animal's faces and bedside lamps designed after tree bark. Amenities include flat-screen TVs, complimentary Wi-Fi access and Nespresso coffee machines. Guests found the rooms to be comfortable and the staff to be friendly, but allotted the highest of praises to The Hive: the on-site restaurant that serves regional cuisine with a modern twist. You can find the 21c Museum Hotel two blocks from Bentonville's town square, about a three-hour drive northwest of Little Rock, Arkansas.

The ground floor will include a gallery space of its own, with rotating exhibitions, as well as a restaurant and a boutique.
