More AC Hotels by Marriott® Coming Soon to Atlanta!
By Laura Carson Miller
If you live in Atlanta you’ve surely noticed that the AC Hotels by Marriott® brand is popping up all over the place. With business at the Buckhead location booming, look for new locations in Midtown and Downtown coming soon.
With a glorious entrance into the Atlanta market, the AC Hotel Buckhead opened last year next to Phipps Plaza. Winter Construction and Cooper Carry collaborated on the AC Hotel Buckhead and will also work together on the new Midtown location, dually branded as AC Hotel and Moxy Hotel. The Moxy, designed for millennials, will be Marriott’s new brand debut in Georgia. Noble Investment Group is the developer.
The new hotel sits in a thriving location at 14th Street between Peachtree Street and West Peachtree Street. The Moxy will include 155 rooms, and the AC Hotel will include 133 rooms. The building’s total area will be 266,000 square feet, and it will include several levels of parking.
Brent Reid, Winter Construction’s CEO, said, “We have really enjoyed building in Midtown Atlanta, which is such an innovative and culturally important place in our City. We are thrilled to continue building here with such an exciting new hotel.”
Revitalizing a central downtown locale, Peachtree Hotel Group and AC Hotels by Marriott® will welcome AC Hotel® Atlanta Downtown, slated to debut at 101 Andrew Young International Boulevard in May 2017.
“The downtown Atlanta area has seen a resurgence and significant growth in the last several years, and the opening of the new AC Hotel Atlanta Downtown is representative of the area’s thriving economy,” said Mitul Patel, chief operating officer at Peachtree Hotel Group. “AC Hotels by Marriott celebrates the beauty of classic modern design with a European soul and Spanish roots, which is something we thought would complement and further enhance the energetic atmosphere in the flourishing downtown area.”
To add to the multitude of in-room amenities, guests will also be able to take advantage of a variety of communal spaces built for work, play and everything in between. Upon opening, the hotel will debut a 24-hour health and fitness studio, an activated outdoor patio and swimming pool and an enclosed Zen garden with greenery walls for guests who wish to experience a quick escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. A media salon on the lobby level will offer a communal startup space for sharing ideas and practicing prior to meetings – and will feature a 55-inch flat screen television with advanced technical mirroring capabilities for devices including smartphones, tablets and laptops.
Exclusive food and beverage offerings are another highlight of the new hotel, which feature two unique dining spaces. Guests will be invited to jump-start each morning in the dynamic AC Kitchen, where they can take their pick of fresh pastries including AC’s signature croissants, cured meats and a wide variety of European-inspired hot breakfast items to enjoy in the hotel or on-the-go. The hotel’s Spanish roots further shine through in the AC Lounge, a communal gathering space by day and social hub by night.
