AC Hotels by Marriott Chicago Downtown hotel opens its doors

By Chris Chamberlin, May 29 2015

The Windy City’s newest hotel, the AC Hotel Chicago Downtown now welcomes guests in the heart of the River North neighbourhood.

Targeting business travellers looking to make use of their downtime, the hotel’s AC Lounge offers a twist on the traditional hotel bar with local craft beers and wines on tap, plus the expected cocktails and tapas.

You’ll find breakfast in the adjacent AC Kitchen and boasting Nespresso coffee for that morning hit.

Styled to be both “modern and sleek” and also “stylish but unfussy”, the property’s palate relies on muted colours, warm greys, charcoal tones, clean lines and hardwood floors:

Business travellers can also leave their room to unwind on outdoor terraces with views of the city, an outdoor patio, an indoor pool and also a fitness centre, while connecting to complimentary wireless Internet throughout the property.

You’ll also find a business centre labelled the ‘AC Library’ for computing and printing, along with 278 square metres of meeting and event space.

Members of the Marriott Rewards loyalty program can choose to earn either Marriott Rewards points or airline frequent flyer points or miles during their stay in Chicago.
