    The AC Hotel Chicago Downtown, owned and managed by Marcus® Hotels & Resorts, opened its doors to guests in the heart of Chicago’s thriving River North neighbourhood on May 29. Beverage and Food Programming
    At AC Hotels, premium touches are balanced with comfortable service. A signature element of the hotel includes an innovative beverage and food program within its AC Lounge. A twist on the traditional hotel bar, the experience includes local craft beers, speciality wines on tap, expertly made signature cocktails and a selection of tapas-style small bites.

    Located adjacent to the AC Lounge, the AC Kitchen serves a European-inspired Continental breakfast selection of flaky croissants, freshly-sliced artisanal LaQuercia Prosciutto, savory egg tarts, and Nespresso coffee.

    Signature Design
    With its sleek, minimalist room design, the AC Hotels by Marriott brand is tailored to specifically appeal to millennials and those who want a stylish, but unfussy alternative to the one-size-fits-all hotel. Taking influence from its European roots, the AC Hotel Chicago Downtown uses muted colours and a monochromatic scheme throughout, showcasing a timeless design that is modern and sleek. Guest rooms incorporate warm grays and charcoal tones, with clean lines and hardwood floors; furniture is lifted to create a sense of space, and crisp white linens are used to create a look that’s both refined and elegant.

    Designed by the award-winning, international hospitality consultancy headquartered in Chicago, The Gettys Group, AC Hotel Chicago provides an energetic vibe in the hotel while still encouraging exploration of the city beyond the hotel walls. Décor and furnishings are designed to inspire and add a splash of colour to the soothing palette of the hotel.

    Additional Amenities
    The eight story hotel also offers outdoor terraces with views of the city, a fifth floor outdoor patio and indoor pool, along with a state of the art fitness centre. The AC Library is a central work area for guests to use and be both connected and inspired. Additional amenities include secure on-site parking, 3,000 square-feet of meeting space and complimentary Wi-Fi.

    The new lifestyle hotel is AC Hotels by Marriott’s fourth property in North America (second in the Midwest) following the brand’s debut in New Orleans, Kansas City, and Washington D.C, and is part of a growing portfolio of over 50 hotels expected to open in the next few years in the U.S. and Latin America
