New AC Hotel by Marriott to Open in D.C.
Tuesday, February 10, 2015
In March, Marriott will introduce its third U.S. property with AC Hotels. The new resort will open in Washington D.C. and become the brand’s first location in the Northeast.
As a brand, AC Hotels offers a European approach to resort accommodations. The new AC Hotel Washington D.C. at National Harbor will be no exception. Created with the classic, yet modern design elements of Milan, the resort offers clean architecture with sophisticated decor.
The resort will feature eight floors and 192 guest rooms. Outdoor terraces will allow guests to see stunning views of the Potomac River and the beautiful surrounding areas.
VP of Lifestyle Brands, Toni Stoeckl said, “AC Hotels brand boasts a modern, European look and feel with Spanish roots that will complement the culturally diverse and international flavor of Washington, D.C. We believe in creating meaningful experiences for our quality-driven guests through every element of our hotel and are guided by the philosophy that everything should have a ‘why.'”
Although the decor is sophisticated and stylish, guests will feel relaxed and comfortable at the resort. Marriott and AC Hotels offer supreme service and amenities, which will be carried over into this property.
One unique but essential touch to the property will be their signature AC Lounge. The D.C. lounge will feature a modern twist on the traditional hotel bar with craft beers, wine on-tap, and handcrafted cocktails. While sampling these beverages, guests can also enjoy tapas and small plates.
More European touches can be seen in the resort’s breakfast selections. AC Hotels offers a daily breakfast of gourmet tarts, croissants, cured meats, and cheeses—traditional in many European resorts.
Over the next few years, Marriott plans to open a total of 50 resorts across the nation. After completing AC Hotel Washington D.C. at National Harbor, the resort group plans to open a property in New Orleans.
