83 Degrees Media cites Tampa’s MetWest International’s AC by Marriott hotel one of the most anticipated development projects of 2017.
Out-of-town visitors will have a new place to stay in early 2018 when the AC Hotel by Marriott opens at MetWest International in Westshore.
The hotel brand is meant to appeal to millennial travelers.
“We’re excited to introduce the AC Hotel by Marriott brand to Tampa,” says Javier Garcia, Managing Director of the PRISA Group, which is building the hotel with Orlando-based Welbro Building Corp. “The AC Hotel brings a new lifestyle hospitality concept to the vibrant Westshore business district, combining a modern, European design aesthetic with exciting bar and lounge offerings, all next to the many food and beverage offerings of the MetWest International project.”
MetWest International is a 32-acre mixed-use development in the heart of Tampa’s Westshore business district with retail, hotel, residential and office spaces. It’s located near Tampa International Airport and International Plaza.
Ground was broken on the hotel in September. It’s slated to have 175 rooms and 96,000 square feet of space.
“The guest rooms follow simplistic design and include a signature closet, work desk, luggage bench and a 47-inch TV,” Garcia says. “Clean-cut, linear aesthetics highlight the public space areas, inclusive of a collaborative space with a communal table and reading section.”
There will also be lounge seating, a multimedia area, a market, two media salons, a business and social events room, fitness center, pool and pool bar, and complimentary Wi-Fi throughout the property.
