AC Hotels by Marriott Opens Second New York City Property
AC Hotels by Marriott, Marriott International’s European-inspired lifestyle brand, has announced the November opening of AC Hotel New York Downtown – the brand’s second property in New York City. Located in Manhattan’s newly-revitalized Seaport District, the 33-story AC Hotel New York Downtown, will be managed by Concord Hospitality.
The hotel’s sleek 274 guest rooms will provide an escape from the buzzing hub of the Financial District with features such as floor-to-ceiling windows, artwork by locally commissioned artists and views of the East River and Brooklyn.
“The development of the Seaport District has the whole neighborhood buzzing and we are thrilled to be a part of the transformation,” says Craig Kepple, General Manager of AC Hotel New York Downtown. “We offer an urban, modern, high-style experience to promote a feeling of harmony and creativity amongst our guests. Our team was attracted to the property’s location, and we believe that the addition of an AC Hotel will perfectly complement this thriving area.”
AC Hotel New York Downtown will feature Spanish tapas at the AC Kitchen and handcrafted cocktails at the AC Lounge, including the brand’s two signature Gin & Tonics – the AC Signature G&T with Hendrick’s Gin and the AC G&T with Bombay Sapphire East Gin, the latter of which is served in the custom glass designed by the brand to enhance the drinker’s taste, aroma, and palate experience.
“The AC brand is all about giving guests a moment of pause and tranquility, and we’re thrilled to bring this experience to a second location in Manhattan with the opening of the AC Hotel New York Downtown,” said Benoit Racle, Senior Global Brand Director, AC Hotels by Marriott. “From taking in the views from the floor-to-ceiling windows in the guest rooms, to moving seamlessly to enjoying an AC Gin Tonic, or catching up on emails in the workspace in the AC Library, guests can rely on the AC Hotel New York Downtown to provide an oasis of calm in the middle of one of the city’s busiest districts.”
The new AC Hotel is located in the heart of the Seaport District, steps away from world-class restaurants, entertainment and shopping attractions – including the newly-opened acclaimed Corso Como luxury fashion concept store. The hotel’s location also allows for easy access to the new Pier 17, Wall Street, Brooklyn Bridge, September 11th Memorial and Museum in addition to the World Trade Center.
