AC Hotel Salt Lake City Downtown today announced the grand opening of Salt Lake City’s first AC Hotel by Marriott on the corner of 2nd & 2nd (225 West 200 South) downtown in the center of the city’s expanding art district.
The 164-room AC Hotel Salt Lake City Downtown provides guests with a new experience unlike anything else in Salt Lake City, offering a blend of European-inspired high design, locally-driven art, hand-curated amenities, and a place at the heart of the local culture and nightlife. With an ideal corner location across from the Salt Palace Convention Center, the hotel provides unparalleled access to surrounding businesses, restaurants and entertainment offerings. AC Hotels by Marriott currently boasts over 120 properties throughout the world.
“AC Hotels complements the spirit and culture of downtown Salt Lake City by providing a chic experience, exceptional beverage and food offerings, local art and culture, and a comfortable working and gathering space,” said Jared Steere, general manager, AC Hotel Salt Lake City Downtown. “This grand opening gives us the opportunity to take a moment and celebrate the culmination of the hard work and dedication of so many people who have helped breathe life into this beautiful hotel.”
The hotel offers a distinctive Beverage & Food program with a unique take on the traditional hotel bar, which features local vendors where possible. The AC Lounge experience is influenced by the idea of “draft and craft” where guests can work during the day and unwind in the evening. Craft beers, wines and cocktails are offered, complemented by a selection of small tapas-style plates inspired by the brand’s Spanish roots.
The hotel also features the AC Kitchen, inspired by the European home, which is open daily for breakfast, offering sweet and savory tarts, freshly baked croissants, and a selection of local artisan cured meats and cheeses. Additional amenities include a 24-hour fitness center and 1,276 square feet of meeting space.
“At AC Hotels, we believe it is attention to the details that make a difference to our guests’ experience,” said Benoit Racle, Senior Director and Global Brand Lead, AC Hotels by Marriott. “AC Hotel Salt Lake City provides travelers with everything that they need, and nothing that they don’t, ensuring they have a frictionless, stylish experience in the city whether they are traveling for business or leisure.”
“We are thrilled to welcome the new AC Hotel Salt Lake City Downtown, which will help establish Salt Lake City as a top destination city, said Scott Beck, president and CEO of Visit Salt Lake. “The hotel offers so many unique offerings that travelers won’t find from any other hotel in Salt Lake City.”
The design-led hotel, inspired and founded by Spanish hotelier, Antonio Catalan, blends European style and simple lines to provide just the beautiful essentials.
