AC Hotel opens in Downtown Fort Worth
Another hotel is located in downtown Fort Worth with the 16-story AC Hotel Fort Worth with 252 rooms, which opened on September 28th. The first AC Hotels by Marriott to debut in Tarrant County is owned by Jackson-Shaw and managed by Jackson-Shaw Crescent Hotels & Resorts. It’s located at 101 West 5th Street near Sundance Square on the southwest corner of Main Street and Fifth Street.
“The AC Hotel Fort Worth is designed for creative, well-traveled visionaries who appreciate a well-thought-out space. The hotel has gallery-style art installations, a library, a quiet outdoor area, and a bar that can act as funky workspaces, ”said Joe Blewitt, Jackson Shaw vice president of asset management. “Located in the heart of downtown Fort Worth, the modern lifestyle brand is a hub for guests to discover the coveted local scenes and talent and make meaningful and authentic connections with each visit.”
AC Hotel Fort Worth is managed by General Manager Aaron R. Oquendo and Director of Sales and Marketing Jillian Lehmann. The hotel is now accepting reservations for room stays, business meetings and events.
“Our team is committed to delivering a polished, harmonious and innovative lifestyle experience,” said Oquendo. “With sophisticated modern guest rooms, sleek furniture and intuitive technology elements, the hotel offers a blend of comfort and culture to deliver a ‘perfectly precise hotel’ that strikes the right balance between the details you want and the services you need.”
AC Hotel Fort Worth also features the AC Lounge, which has a fully stocked bar serving local beers and handcrafted cocktails, as well as tapa-inspired small plates. The property offers a European-style breakfast, a purposely designed 24-hour wellness center, and the added convenience of an independent coffee shop on the first floor due to open later this year. The AC hotel experience offers targeted collaboration by day and social basics by night.
