AC Hotels by Marriott now bookable on Marriott website
Friday 17, June 2011
Celebrating the official launch of Marriott International and Spanish hotel group AC Hotels’ joint venture and new co-brand - AC Hotels by Marriott, the new brand’s hotels will be offering 15% off room rates through to 8 January 2012.
This will be applicable to reservations made seven to 14 days in advance. The portfolio of 85 existing AC Hotels in Spain, Italy and Portugal, have now been re-branded AC Hotels by Marriott and are accepting reservations through all of Marriott’s distribution channels, including Marriott.com
AC Hotels by Marriott reflect the modern urban lifestyle with hotels featuring a unique blend of quality, comfort, design and technology. All AC Hotels by Marriott welcome guests with their signature AC Lounge, offering complimentary Wi-Fi - a great place to relax, work or unwind with a drink or snack. Guestrooms in AC Hotels by Marriott feature a contemporary look and feel with crisp white bedding, gleaming wood floors, modern bathrooms and free mini-bar.
In Madrid for the celebration, J. W. Marriott, Jr., chairman and chief executive officer of Marriott International, Inc. said, “I am thrilled to be here for the launch of our exciting new brand, AC Hotels by Marriott, and to officially welcome this stylish new portfolio of hotels in to our Marriott family. AC Hotels by Marriott is a great partnership and we are thrilled to deliver 85 new hotel choices to our loyal Marriott customers throughout Spain, Italy and Portugal.”
The 9,000 room AC Hotels by Marriott venture is a significant driver of Marriott’s European growth strategy and five-year goal of reaching 80,000 rooms in Europe by 2015.
Antonio Catalan, chairman and founder of AC Hotels said, “This joint venture marks the start of a new era. We are proud to be part of the Marriott global family of brands and will together be aggressively pursuing development opportunities for AC Hotels by Marriott throughout Europe and Latin America.”

More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
