Los Angeles’ first AC Hotel by Marriott opens in Beverly Hills
In a neighborhood known for stylish imports, it’s nice to stand out. And AC Hotel Beverly Hills, the first Los Angeles-based locale for the design-led European lifestyle hotel brand, AC Hotels by Marriott, does just that. Developed by Reliable Properties and Seaview Investors, and managed by Interstate Hotels & Resorts, the new property opened at 6399 Wilshire Blvd, close to famed cultural and retail draws such as Rodeo Drive, The Grove, Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), Petersen Automotive Museum and the Beverly Center.
The original Art Deco façade of AC Hotel Beverly Hills embeds the new 11-story hotel in Wilshire Boulevard’s historic architectural legacy. Once inside, the ambiance transitions to AC Hotel’s curated blend of European soul and Spanish roots, born from the signature vision of renowned hotelier Antonio Catalan who created the AC brand in Spain circa 1998. Guided by his founding philosophy of purposeful design, hospitality design specialists Design Force Co. paired AC Hotels’ natural elegance with rich colors and geometric shapes inspired by the style of Beverly Hills.
“We are delighted to debut AC Hotels by Marriott in Los Angeles with the opening of AC Hotel Beverly Hills,” said Benoit Racle, Global Brand Leader, AC Hotels by Marriott. “This new lifestyle hotel is ideally located and has been designed with creative, well-traveled, entrepreneurial spirits in mind, providing them with sophisticated European inspired aesthetic, innovative beverage & food programming and intuitive service.”
