ORLANDO, Fla. – The design-driven AC Hotel Orlando Downtown, which opened earlier this year, has ushered in a new level of urban sophistication as the area’s first lifestyle hotel.
AC Hotel Orlando Downtown features three indoor meeting rooms totaling more than 2,000 square feet with the latest audio/visual tech and seven configurations ideal for executive gatherings, business trainings, and social events.
Towering above Garland Avenue and spread across eight floors of Orlando’s SunTrust Plaza Building, the 180-room hotel features a European aesthetic inspired by AC Hotels’ signature design philosophy. The interiors, curated for both business and leisure guests, include a neutral beige color palette, underscored with darker tones and granite accents. The design incorporates clean lines, sleek furnishings, hardwood floors, ambient lighting, open closet systems and unique artwork that reflects its cosmopolitan location. The spacious rooms are also equipped features such as ambiance controls that adjust the temperature and lighting, HDTVs with Netflix and Hulu streaming, and several USB ports.
Situated on the southwestern corner of downtown Orlando, the property is less than half a mile from both Exploria Stadium, home of the Orlando City Soccer Club, and the Amway Center, a concert venue and home of the NBA’s Orlando Magic. The hotel is also near the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts and Camping World Stadium, hosts to events like Front Yard Festival and the Citrus Bowl, respectively. This central Florida hotel is also 20 minutes from the trendy neighborhood of Winter Park, Orlando International Airport (MCO), and The University of Central Florida.
Coupled with more than a dozen natural springs all within an hour’s drive, AC Hotel Orlando Downtown is a great jumping off point from which to explore.
“As the first AC brand hotel in Orlando, our team is eager to deliver an experience that combines the thoughtful design and inviting atmosphere synonymous with AC Hotels with a warm, distinctly Floridian flair,” said general manager Bobby Copeland. “My hope is that the introduction of the AC Hotel Orlando Downtown paired with innovative, locally influenced programming will carve out a unique niche in a city with undeniable energy.”
