PARIS—Marriott International has opened the 149-room AC Hotel Paris Porte Maillot here, the first for the brand in the city.
Located at Porte Maillot, close to the Palais des Congrès, the hotel’s design is inspired by the runways and fashion houses of Milan with simple, clean and crisp lines that marry sophisticated European style with approachable design, according to the company. The lobby features furnishings, modern patterns and textures with a layered color palette of warm greys, soft charcoals and bright accents.
Hotel amenities include AC Lounge, a fitness center with views of the Eiffel Tower and free WiFi throughout the hotel.
This is the third AC Hotels by Marriott property in France, following AC Hotel Ambassadeur Antibes-Juan les Pins and AC Hotel Nice in the south of France. The brand has a portfolio of more than 70 hotels in Spain, Italy, Portugal and France and a pipeline of more than 30 hotels set to open within the next three years throughout the U.S. and Latin America.
