Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia February 2020 – AC Hotels by Marriott® today announced the debut of the brand in Malaysia with the opening of three AC Hotels by Marriott; AC Hotel Kuala Lumpur Titiwangsa, AC Hotel Penang Bukit Jambul, and AC Hotel Kuantan City Centre. With AC Hotels, every moment has been designed, refined, crafted and considered to create comfortable, elegant and unobstructed experiences that allows guests to maximize their enjoyment and efficiency. Born from the entrepreneurial spirit of renowned hotelier Antonio Catalan, AC Hotels features flexible open spaces, purposeful design, signature moments and no unwanted extras.
Based on the idea that purposeful design improves stay experiences, all three AC Hotels by Marriott are set to bring a new standard to the hospitality landscape in Malaysia with a promise to offer The Perfectly Precise Hotel™, providing guests with thoughtfully designed moments of beauty and experiences that elevate their stay.
“We are delighted to introduce AC Hotels by Marriott across 3 very distinct destinations in Malaysia”, said Mike Fulkerson, Vice President, Brand Marketing, Asia Pacific, Marriott International. “Designed to offer an urban modern, high-style and carefully curated experience, the opening of all 3 hotels further compliments Marriott International’s growing footprint in the country.”
Embracing the brands focus on harmonious design and tailored style, the hotels each feature the AC Lobby, with furnishing that offers a timeless yet modern feel, and communal spaces that have been designed with maximum comfort and function in mind. Further embracing the brand’s focus on purposeful design, each room is thoughtfully designed to allow travellers to use the space in whatever way they see fit - providing them with everything they need, and nothing they don’t. The hotels will also feature the brand’s signature innovative beverage and food program at the AC Kitchen where guests can savour the start of the day with a European-inspired breakfast spread, while the AC Lounge offers an approachable twist with a selection of tapas and drinks through the day, and the signature Roselle mocktail in the evening for guests to unwind during AC Hour. For those who are on the go, a convenient 24-hour Grab & Go self-service kiosk provides access to a variety of food.
The hotel is also equipped with meeting spaces that are designed to be inviting and collaborative, and to facilitate creativity with complimentary essentials for corporate meetings or social gatherings.
