AC Hotels welcomes inaugural Montana property
Designed by SERA Architects, AC Hotel Missoula Downtown represents the first opening for Marriott International’s fast-growing brand in Montana.
A smart new 105-key property in Missoula, Montana is already turning plenty of heads.
Making the most of Missoula’s natural assets
AC Hotel Missoula Downtown, the latest addition to Marriott International’s ranks, is located in the centre of this picturesque city in western Montana. Situated at the corner of Main and Pattee Street, the property is nestled comfortably amid Missoula’s tree-lined roads and riverfront trails.
Lacy DeQuattro, area director of sales and marketing of Missoula Downtown Marriott Hotels, said: “We are so excited to welcome guests to the first AC Hotel in Montana right here in the heart of downtown Missoula.
“Downtown Missoula is so genuinely welcoming and has an effortless way of pulling you into the present moment. There is a beautiful synergy between our AC Hotel and our city that creates an experience I believe our AC guests and locals will look forward to time and time again.”
Spain meets Montana
The AC Hotels brand is known for its design savvy, and that’s certainly the case with this newbuild hotel, which is managed by Aimbridge Hospitality. Spread over six floors, each of the 105 rooms has been carefully considered and features an integrated work desk, seating area and well-appointed bathroom.
Seeing as this brand hails from Spain, there’s a confluence of European and American influences on display at the SERA Architects-designed property, which showcases selected artworks from Radius Art Gallery. The materials used in the project are stylish and classic, with natural elements such as wood and stone making welcome appearances, albeit set off by contrasting metal and glass flourishes that really set them off.
Business travellers can avail themselves of 935 sq ft of high-tech, flexible meeting and event space that can accommodate up to 65 guests, while wellness enthusiasts are able to keep active on the go at the 24-hour fitness centre.
The AC Lounge in the lobby area, moreover, features signature cocktails and local craft beers, while 7R Bar, which is due to open in early summer 2021, is sure to become one of the city’s most exciting rooftop bars. And the AC Kitchen serves up crowd-pleasing European fare, with continental breakfasts the order of the day here.
The hotel is conveniently located just a ten-minute drive from Missoula International Airport.

ABOUT THE CHAIN
AC Hotels was born from the vision of Spanish hotelier Antonio Catalan - who wanted to create a new kind of stay for a new kind of traveller that prefers to have fewer things, but expects them to be better than good.
