The 160-room AC Hotel Phoenix Biltmore officially opened in Phoenix's upscale Biltmore neighborhood. The new hotel, part of AC Hotels by Marriott, is located in the Camelback Corridor, an office, retail and entertainment destination in metropolitan Phoenix.   

"We are delighted to open our second AC Hotel in this thriving cultural destination of Phoenix,” Benoit Racle, global brand Leader, AC Hotels by Marriott, said in a statement. “From its superb location to its contemporary art and architecture, AC Hotel Phoenix Biltmore will undoubtedly become a mainstay on the map for local and visiting business travelers alike.”
