SCOTTSDALE, AZ–AC Hotels by Marriott®, the design-led lifestyle brand from Marriott International, announced today the opening of the 165-room AC Hotel Scottsdale North, inviting travelers to experience a stylish hotel adjacent to world-class shopping at Kierland Commons and palm lined storefronts of the Scottsdale Quarter. Located in a desirable shopping and entertainment district in Scottsdale, the anticipated new hotel embodies AC Hotels’ brand promise of going beyond the conventions of travel to create experiences that strike the perfect balance of details that guests want and the services they need.
Developed by Host Hotels and Resorts and managed by OTO Development, the hotel introduces purposeful, curated, and elevated style along with AC Hotels’ signature beverage and food programming. Built by general contractor DPR with architecture and interior design services by DLR Group, the design of AC Hotels’ first hotel in Scottsdale draws from the surrounding desert landscape offering reprieve from the sun and evoking the shadow of surrounding mountains. Crisp white accents contrasting the dark architectural backdrop creates a contemporary palette enhancing the European aesthetic of the AC Hotel by Marriott brand. The project is striving for LEED Silver certification.
AC Hotel Scottsdale North takes shape with sophisticated and clean-lined interiors offering a respite to the arid desert environment outside. Inspired by the desert at night, the public space celebrates an active and invigorated setting for guests to explore. Black wood tambour walls, and dark chestnut millwork connects the design narrative inside out and reinforces the native desert inspiration. Quality sourced art and timeless, modern touches evoke the feeling of a well-curated gallery. Embracing AC Hotels’ focus on harmonious design and tailored style, the hotel features minimalist guest rooms that allow travelers to use the space in whatever way they see fit.
A signature offering of the brand includes an innovative beverage and food program at the hotel’s AC Kitchen, where European-inspired breakfast features signature butter croissants imported from France, artisan cured meats, such as thinly sliced Italian Prosciutto from AC’s iconic Berkel slicing machine, an international selection of cheeses, as well as yogurts and cereals, seasonal fruits and local specialties
