AC-T: Work begins on downtown Asheville AC Hotel

From Asheville Citizen-Times:

By Mike Cronin

Some 30 city leaders gathered Thursday morning at the intersection of Market Street and Langren Alley to celebrate the beginning of what will become the AC Hotel Asheville Downtown.

The 132-room Marriott-branded hotel at 10 Broadway will be owned and managed by McKibbon, a franchise of Marriott International, Inc., based in Bethesda, Maryland. It will include a 336-space parking deck. Guests also will have access to 2,087 square feet of meeting space. The at least nine-story hotel is scheduled to open during summer 2016.

One thought on “AC-T: Work begins on downtown Asheville AC Hotel

  1. I don’t oppose the new hotel. As far as I know, the developer owns the property and the plans submitted and approved are not in violation of the law. Aesthetically, I find the planned hotel appealing. Functionally, I think it will enhance the community in a number of ways. I trust the marketing research performed by the developer has indicated that the hotel will be a good fit for the city, fill a need in the market, and will be profitable for the property owner.
