AC Hotels by Marriott has announced the opening of AC Hotel Spartanburg, the brand's first location in South Carolina.

AC Hotel Spartanburg is locally owned by the Johnson family and operated by OTO Development, a Johnson Management company.

"This AC Hotel reinvents the Spartanburg skyline," says Geordy Johnson, CEO of Johnson Management, noting that the 10-story property is the first new hotel to open in Spartanburg's central business district since 2004. "It's a dynamic addition to a rapidly revitalizing downtown and everything - from architecture to amenities to artwork - is designed to introduce South Carolina to the AC brand's 'New Way to Hotel.'"

The hotel is on track to attain LEED Silver Certification. Architectural design was a collaboration of DC-based David M. Schwarz Architects and Spartanburg's McMillan Pazdan Smith, with interior work by DLR Group of Minneapolis. Robins & Morton served as General Contractor.

AC Hotel Spartanburg offers five suites and 109 guest rooms with either two queen-sized beds or a king plus pullout sofa.

Other amenities at AC Hotel Spartanburg include three meeting rooms, an outdoor pool with patio, a business center, and a 24/7 fitness room. The AC Kitchen serves a European-inspired breakfast.

The 10th floor is devoted to a rooftop restaurant - scheduled to begin operations in late January - with an open-air terrace with a 360° view of the city. Level 10 is operated by the Rick Erwin Dining Group and helmed by Executive Chef Mark Grasso and General Manager Mark McCalmont.

AC Hotel Spartanburg is located at 225 W. Main St. in downtown Spartanburg.
