Salt Lake City - Feb. 7, 2018 – AC Hotel Salt Lake City Downtown is proud to announce the expected April 2018 opening of Salt Lake City’s first AC Hotel by Marriott on the corner of 2nd & 2nd (225 West 200 South) downtown.

With an ideal corner location across from the Salt Palace Convention Center, the 164-room AC Hotel Salt Lake City Downtown will cater to the modern traveler with its blend of European-inspired high design, locally-driven art and hand-curated amenities. The hotel also will provide unparalleled access to surrounding businesses, restaurants and entertainment offerings.

“The AC brand is all about creating a stylish and carefully edited experience, with a focus on exciting beverage and food offerings, local art and culture and providing a comfortable working and gathering space,” said Jared Steere, general manager, AC Hotel Salt Lake City Downtown. “The hotel’s progressive design, modern amenities and its place within the local culture and nightlife will provide guests with an experience unlike anything else in the city.”

The hotel will offer a distinctive Beverage & Food program with a unique take on the traditional hotel bar.

Craft beers, wines and cocktails will be offered, complemented by a selection of small tapas-style plates inspired by the brand’s Spanish roots.

The hotel also will feature the AC Kitchen, inspired by the European home, which will be open daily for breakfast, offering sweet and savory tarts, freshly baked croissants and a selection of local artisan cured meats and cheeses.
