The new AC Hotel Asheville Downtown is coming together at the corner of College and Broadway streets. The 9-story, 132-room AC Hotel brand by Marriott is scheduled to open later this fall.
The hotel has a four-story parking deck with 336 spaces, a top-floor meeting space and a rooftop bar. The McKibbon Hospitality project is the latest Asheville hotel by owner John McKibbon, who owns several hotels in town, including the Aloft Hotel on Biltmore Avenue.
This is the first AC Hotel in the Carolinas, according to a press release. “The brand is considered to be in the upper-moderate tier and falls between select-service and full-service. AC Hotels are designed for creative, well-traveled entrepreneurial spirits who are constantly on the go,” according to a press release. The release goes on to say that the design of the rooms is “sleek, crisp and elegant.”
The entire top floor will be reserved for dining and meetings, according to the press release, with a rooftop bar that features indoor and outdoor seating. The lobby of the building will also have informal meeting space and free wi-fi.
