It’s the first AC for Northeast Ohio, part of the Marriott chain, with a contemporary, European flair.

The brand was founded in 1998 in Spain by Antonio Catalan (“AC”), who partnered with Marriott in 2011. Since then, the hotel chain has expanded quickly in the United States, with 54 hotels in 24 states. In Ohio, there are two in the Cincinnati area, and one outside of Columbus, in Dublin.
