Marriott to Open AC Hotels in U.S.
Marriott International announced it will open AC Hotels by Marriott in the United States and the Americas. Currently, the hotel brand has properties in Spain, Italy, Portugal, and France. The company did not say where it will locate the first properties.
The AC by Marriott brand was launched as a joint venture between Marriott International and AC Hotels, a Spanish group, in 2011. It was inspired by the runways and fashion houses of Milan.
Current AC Hotels feature lobbies with a curated collection of furnishings, modern patterns and textures, and a palette of warm greys and soft charcoal accents. The AC Lounge is located within the lobby, where guests are offered small plates, cocktails, and beers and wines.
Each property also has a library and business center, and Wi-Fi Internet is free.
The brand currently has a portfolio of 79 hotels.
