AC Hotel Columbus Downtown launches in Georgia

by | 30 Apr 2021 | Hotel Projects, Projects

RAM Hotels has opened a 125-room hotel, part of the prolific AC Hotels by Marriott brand, at a prominently placed site in Columbus, Georgia.

Located in the Uptown district of Columbus, the six-storey AC Hotel Columbus Downtown is a design-driven lifestyle hotel that really stands out from the crowd.

Locally inspired design

The newly opened Columbus hotel is now hosting locals and visitors across its 125 guestrooms and engaging communal spaces, which include an extensive bar featuring custom-curated cocktails.

This enticing property is distinguished by the inclusion of modern design elements reminiscent of the historic Columbus Mills, as well as its carefully curated collection of artworks. Each space within the hotel is designed to provide an inviting ambiance with contemporary styling.

“The AC Hotel Columbus Downtown is the first of its kind located directly on Broadway in Uptown, providing an elevated destination to Columbus, redefining the guest experience with inspired design and service,” said general manager Kane Morris.

“The concept behind the AC Hotel Columbus Downtown is simple but refined – remove the unnecessary extras to allow guests to focus on what is most important to them,” added Mitesh Patel, RAM Hotels executive vice president. “We are excited to offer this frictionless experience to the Columbus area.

“I especially look forward to introducing the AC Café. We are the first AC Hotel to offer this experience, from the moment the order is placed, to the moment the coffee is served, everything is visible to the guest. A truly elevated specialty coffee service experience available to guests and locals.”

Amenities for work and play

Guestrooms designed for both business and leisure travellers feature sleek furnishings, hardwood floors and elegant art. While staying here, visitors can try European-inspired specialty coffees in AC Café, retreat to the ambiently lit AC Library and work by day or socialise by night in AC Lounge, which is located in the lobby with access from Broadway.

The bar aims to attract both guests and locals with artisanal cocktails, craft beer and specialty wines along with Spanish-inspired tapas-style small plates. AC Kitchen, meanwhile, provides patrons with a European-inspired breakfast selection that includes fresh croissants and artisan cured meats such as La Quercia Prosciutto.

Among the additional facilities here are a fitness centre and an AC Store for locally sourced items. Both the amenities and service are designed to encourage guests to work, explore and socialise during their stay.

The brand’s signature service buttons, Kallpods, are integrated throughout the property and a DIY lavender turndown service is available each evening from the lobby. Thanks to its location at 1225 Broadway, the hotel is within walking distance of Uptown’s shopping and dining outlets, and conveniently positioned near the offices of major employers like Global Payments, Synovus, CSU, Mercer University and Aflac.
