AC Hotel Washington, DC at National Harbor incorporates the linear design of the harbor into its art. Upon entering the eight-story hotel, guests will find a rope wall inspired by boats docked on the Potomac River, as well as nautical accents throughout. Outside in National Harbor lies a public art scene featuring international and local artists. Highlights include the "The Awakening" statue by J. Steward Johnson Jr., and "The Beckoning" by Albert Paley.

Looking to engage the millennial traveler, AC Hotels by Marriott incorporates a design-focus approach. Guests will find open-concept closets and integrated work desk and luggage benches in all rooms. Complimentary Wi-Fi, USB and power ports and smart TVs that can stream on-demand content.

Operated under a long-term management agreement by Marriott International, the hotel is owned by Ryman Hospitality Properties.
