The AC Hotel in Dublin, Ohio welcomed their first guest last week as they opened their doors for business on September 26.  The AC is the 44th open hotel in the Shaner portfolio, the second in Ohio and the first AC brand.  This marks the second hotel in under a month that Shaner has opened in Dublin, Ohio following the Home2 Suites.


Fairly new to the Marriott family of brands, the AC Hotel offers a truly unique hotel experience.  With its roots established in Europe, the AC brand has expanded its growth over the last few years into the U.S.  The brand offers modern, stylish design with a focus on the pure essentials of a beautiful hotel stay. The AC Dublin offers 150 guest rooms and suites with some with views of the Scioto River.  Guests of the AC Hotel can start each day in the AC Kitchen with a Spanish inspired breakfast and then move on to a productive day in their thoughtfully designed lobby or meeting rooms.  Guest who are in town for leisure, will find themselves just minutes from downtown Columbus, the Columbus Zoo and Ohio State University among many other attractions.


The hotel will also feature VASO, a rooftop dining experience unlike any other in Dublin.  Floor to ceiling windows and a glass elevator will take guests up to VASO where they can enjoy sophisticated cocktails paired with creative tapas. VASO also provides breathtaking panoramic views of the Scioto River along with Historic Dublin.  VASO will be opening soon and is the final piece to the truly unique hospitality experience that is the AC Hotel in Dublin.


Congratulations to Orcun Turkay, Sandy Martin and the rest of the AC team on the successful opening of the hotel.
