Chicago Four Points to be converted to first US-based AC Hotel by Marriott

Marcus Hotels & Resorts, a division of The Marcus Corporation, will convert its Four Points by Sheraton Chicago Downtown/Magnificent Mile hotel located at 630 N. Rush Street into one of the first AC Hotels by Marriott in the U.S. with an anticipated opening in spring 2015.

Inspired by the fashion houses of Spain and the runways of Italy, the AC Hotels by Marriott brand targets travelers searching for a design-led hotel. European aesthetics, simplistic designs and technology-enabled functional spaces define the brand.

The AC by Marriott Chicago will have 226 rooms and 6,000 square-feet of meeting space. Public spaces will have multimedia areas. The AC Lounge will offer a bar area with cocktails, craft beers and small plate food offerings, seating and complimentary Wi-Fi overlooking the Magnificent Mile. Also included in the property is the AC Library, AC Fitness and AC breakfast. All guestrooms will have dramatic lighting, functional work spaces, free Wi-Fi and furnishings.
