AC Hotel Washington, DC Convention Center, the third AC Hotels by Marriott to open in the capital region, offers the brand's intuitive and timeless European-inspired travel experience to guests beginning October 5, 2020.

Conveniently situated in the heart of DC's bustling Mount Vernon Triangle neighborhood, this architecturally stunning hotel is located at 601 K St. NW, just steps from the Walter E. Washington Convention Center and just a few blocks from both CityCenterDC and Capital One Arena. Built by DC-based Douglas Development, the hotel aims to interpret the AC brand's spirit in a distinct way by emphasizing its unique urban location. Locals and travelers alike will enjoy the convenience of this thriving DC business district that embraces the city's diverse culinary offerings, its diplomatic outposts, and its vibrant arts & culture scene.

Central to the AC brand's purposeful and classic modern design, the AC Hotel Washington, DC Convention Center features 13 stories of 234 sleek guest rooms with floor-to-ceiling windows and cityscape views that stretch from the Capitol dome across downtown. The guest rooms which will be offered in a variety of configurations such as double queen, king, and double king, are styled to maximize a sense of openness with plenty of space to unpack and unwind. Additional amenities include the tech-forward AC Media Lounge, the sundry style AC Store with AC branded signature offerings, the spacious 24-hour fitness center, rejuvenating Korres Greek apothecary bath products, and free WiFi.

Guests will have access to the AC Brand's signature spaces including the AC Kitchen, AC Library and AC Lounge. The AC Kitchen, led by Chef Gene Sohn, offers European-style breakfast with French croissants, artisan Berkel-sliced Prosciutto di Parma and other cured meats as well as a Torrefazione Italian coffee bar. The AC Kitchen is designed to easily transform from breakfast service to a chic, open, and comfortable ambiance ideal for working and socializing. The AC Lounge extends the hotel's European comfort through swanky Spanish tapas and a curated drink menu, featuring the brand's signature Gin+Tonic cocktail.

Unique to the brand's Convention Center location is the hotel's penthouse-style Estrella Lounge, an unparalleled indoor/outdoor rooftop designed by Grizform Design Architects. Opening in late fall, this posh destination will feature an effervescent theme that balances all things lively, sparkling, and high-spirited through its design elements and finishes. Sweeping city backdrops set the stage for must see weekly Jazz performances for locals and guests to enjoy.

"We are thrilled to introduce the Mount Vernon Triangle neighborhood to this amazing new urban retreat that offers travelers a space to relax and restore while exploring our nation's capital," states General Manager Mark Namdar. "As one of only three hotels to open in the district during this unfortunate pandemic, we recognize that safety and comfort are on the top of traveler's minds, and here at the AC DC Convention Center, we have taken extensive measures to ensure our guests feel safe and at ease throughout their journey with us."

The AC Hotel brand has developed signature programming, with attention to detail at every step - each crafted to demonstrate its service philosophy at key moments within the guests on-property journey. With moments such as evening beverage rituals to lavender sachets at turndown, guests will feel taken care of but not fussed over.

Architecture & Design: Wellness is Key


Like every other facet of hotel operations, architecture and design firms are adapting their work to ensure the safety and well-being of both guests and staff. New ways to bring Wellness into hotel spaces are being explored and these solutions are taking on many forms. Hotel designs are incorporating more open floor plans, open air spaces, high ceilings, outdoor areas and operable walls into their spaces. Guests no longer want to be packed into tight areas. More "biophilic" elements are also being incorporated, offering guests the sense of being outdoors. Another trend is the reimagining of guest rooms to support remote work capabilities. Some hotels are converting empty guest rooms into office spaces, complete with effective lighting and suitable backgrounds for video conferencing. Dedicated Zoom Rooms are also becoming increasingly popular. The main goal is to provide guests with a positive experience in a space that feels safe and comfortable. These are some of the architecture and design subjects that will be covered in the November issue of the Hotel Business Review.
