Honolulu gets new AC Hotel by Marriott

Continental Assets Management—a private real estate investment and development company led by founder and CEO Andrew Chang—and Highgate have opened the 112-room AC Hotel by Marriott Honolulu, the brand's first property on the island of Oahu and the first business-traveler-driven concept in the area.

"We're thrilled to bring AC Hotels by Marriott to Oahu, providing a comprehensive and effortless stay in the heart of Honolulu's prime metropolis," Patricia Chang Moad, project executive and VP of Continental Assets Management, said in a statement. "Designed with intellect and inspired interiors, we offer 'everything you need and nothing you don't' with a commitment to ultimate comfort and gateway access to the best of the city for business or leisure travel. Guests are immersed in the hallmark hospitality philosophy of European hotelier Antonio Catalán paired with Hawaii's signature service-with-aloha."

The hotel's open layout provides a seamless flow throughout to facilitate business, networking and socializing. Floor-to-ceiling wrap-around windows surround the open interiors. A bright, neutral color palette works with natural materials like oak, birch and stone to promote clarity and creativity. Design touches include floating platform beds, an integrated executive desk with ergonomic chair, maximized storage and expansive restrooms. Amenities include DIY lavender turndown kits and hydration stations on each floor. The fitness center is equipped with purified air-conditioning, mirrored walls, Peloton bikes and spacious areas for stretching and weightlifting.

Anchored in Oahu's business district, AC Hotel by Marriott Honolulu is close to Chinatown's  nightlife, art and restaurant scene, with iconic neighboring landmarks including the Hawaii State Capitol, Honolulu Hale and Iolani Palace.
