AC Hotel opens in Jacksonville

AC Hotels by Marriott has debuted AC Hotel by Marriott Jacksonville St. Johns Town Center in Jacksonville, FL. OTO Development, part of The Johnson Group, developed the hotel in partnership with Simon, a real estate investment group.

The four-story hotel comprises 118 guestrooms; a fitness center; 1,500 sq. ft. of flexible meeting space, including a private boardroom; an AC Lounge; and an outdoor patio, pool and game space.

“Travelers love staying at AC Hotels by Marriott—and we love building and operating them,” said Matt McClelland, COO, OTO Development, noting this is the fourth AC Hotel located at a Simon property and the 10th within OTO’s owned and managed portfolios. “Guests will especially appreciate the synergy created by connecting this stylish hotel to St. Johns Town Center, putting them within walking distance of an appealing array of market-exclusive retailers and popular restaurants.”

The hotel is near beaches and other recreation opportunities including TPC Sawgrass, Ponte Vedra Beach, Jacksonville Beach and EverBank Stadium, home of the Jacksonville Jaguars.

AC Hotel Jacksonville was developed by OTO and Simon with project partners DLR Group, architect and interior designer; and Kellogg & Kimsey, general contractor.
