Designed with the modern, photography-loving traveler in mind, the in Sydney, Australia is a paradise for not only design-philes but addicts as well. The hotel boasts many old-world decorative elements—exposed brick walls, original ironbark beams, and furniture made of recycled wood—but its 90 rooms are decorated with Instagram photos taken by their guests.

Instagram users with a following of 10,000 or more are rewarded with a free night stay, but guests can also win a night at the hotel by entering a monthly photo contest.

And it doesn't hurt that everything looks more appealing with the right filter.
