At AC Hotels, everything is done with intention while creating harmony. Beautiful layers of deep gray and charcoal tones create a sophisticated and modern sensibility, showcasing a timeless design that is contemporary and sleek.

Furniture is lifted from the ground to create a sense of space and crisp white linens are used to craft a look that is both refined and elegant. The AC Lobby features a thoughtfully selected collection of inviting furnishings, modern designs and textures that elicit the feeling of a well-curated art gallery. The AC Library provides a quiet space to linger and peruse the selection of inspiring titles that line the shelves, ranging from modern art to design, all in a soothing environment. Ambient lighting and cozy seating in the AC Library and Lounge areas invite travelers to relax in chic surroundings, while also creating an effortless space in which to conduct a business meeting or connect with friends over cocktails.
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 AC Lounge features locally crafted beers, specialty wines, 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, savory egg tarts and Nespresso coffee. A signature piece in all AC Hotels is the Berkel slicer, offering visitors hand-cut meats including artisanal La Quercia Prosciutto for a true taste of Europe.
