AC Hotels by Marriott was developed by hotelier Antonio Catalan, who founded the brand in 1998 and grew it in Spain. Following Europe, Catalan formed a joint venture with Marriott International in 2011, which has expanded the brand globally in France, Denmark, the United States, Mexico, Panama, Colombia, Costa Rica and now Peru.
