AC Hotels by Marriott, a design-led European lifestyle hotel brand from Marriott International, recently announced the opening of the AC Hotel Lima Miraflores, located in the Miraflores district with a breathtaking view of the Pacific Ocean.
AC Hotels by Marriott celebrates the beauty of classic modern design with its European soul and Spanish roots, born from the signature vision of the renowned hotelier Antonio Catalan, who founded the brand in 1998 and grew it into one of the most respected hotel brands in Spain. Following its success in Europe, a joint venture was formed with Marriott International in 2011, which has since launched AC Hotels by Marriott globally in France, Denmark, the United States, Mexico, Panama, Colombia, Costa Rica and now Peru. The new AC Hotel Lima Miraflores is the second AC Hotel by Marriott in South America.
“We are delighted to bring the AC Hotel by Marriott Brand to Lima, Peru. Miraflores is a beautiful area full of urban culture and tourist attractions. The style, functional design and attention to detail that AC Hotels have make it ideal for guests traveling for business or pleasure that wish to explore everything Lima has to offer”, said Juan Antonio Sanchez, General Manager of the AC Hotel Lima Miraflores.
On the other hand, Jorge Melero, CEO of Intursa (Tourism National Investments) – partner of Breca and Marriott International in Peru – shared that the investment made for this project in Lima amounted to roughly $28.9 million dollars. This new project is part of a franchise deal with Marriott International.
The AC Hotel Lima Miraflores is 18 stories high and has 150 rooms, 11 suites and 2 meeting rooms with a total area of 882 square feet and a capacity of 90 people. The hotel is also surrounded by boutiques, trendy restaurants and other local attractions. AC Kitchen serves European inspired dishes and the hotel’s trendy AC Lounge offers guests a chic, open and comfortable ambiance, ideal for socializing. The AC Hotel Lima Miraflores also has a rooftop with beautiful views of the city.
AC Hotels by Marriott is a brand with a new understanding of the hotel industry, a modern design and constant evolution in its services, aiming to offer its guests surprising experiences. It allows travelers to know the quality of Marriott International hotels at affordable prices in some of the most interesting cities in the region and promising destinations.
Based on the idea that purposeful design improves lives, AC Hotels by Marriott carves away what is unnecessary, in order to provide guests with thoughtfully designed moments of beauty; experiences that elevate their stay and help them focus on what is important to them. The result is sophisticated yet unpretentious style, innovative food and beverage programming with locally inspired experiences for both guests and locals.
AC Hotel Lima Miraflores will provide employment to over 98 people and create approximately 120 jobs, said Juan Antonio Sánchez. “I’ve estimated that the hotel will be 60 percent occupied by the corporate segment and the remaining by conventional tourists, a segment that has been growing steadily,” added Juan Antonio Sánchez.
Lima is one of the most important cities in South America, which continues to grow in tourism as a business hub and as the gastronomic capital of America. Thanks to its Convention Centers, international tourism has grown in the city.
