Located on the northeast corner of the town square of Bentonville, Arkansas, 21c Museum Hotel Bentonville features 104 rooms and suites and over 12,000 square feet of exhibition and event space.

The hotel, which opened this past February, was designed by Deborah Berke Partners and Polk Stanley Wilcox Architects with sustainable materials, construction, and green building practices. Berke’s design balances grand public spaces scaled to suit an extensive art collection along with more intimate private spaces. With a focus on natural light throughout, the design team relied on the use of skylights, light monitors, large windows, and a light court visible from the restaurant and main corridor of the building. The hotel is located at 200 NE A Street; for more information, visit 21c Bentonville.
