Construction began this week on the AC Hotel by Marriott Spartanburg. An official groundbreaking ceremony had been scheduled Monday but was canceled due to rain.
The new 10-story hotel will be on the corner of West Main Street and South Daniel Morgan Avenue. It will be the first AC Hotel to open in South Carolina with an anticipated opening date in mid-2017. Another AC Hotel by Marriott has also been announced for the future Camperdown project – the current Greenville News site – in downtown Greenville.
The 120-guest room Spartanburg hotel is expected to “serve as visual beacon and gateway anchor to the west end of downtown and enliven the pedestrian experience with outdoor dining, amenities and landscaping,” said OTO Development in a press release. The hotel will have an indoor/outdoor rooftop bar providing 360-degree views of Spartanburg.
“As we commence development on the AC Hotel Spartanburg, it is obvious that this community is truly on the rise,” said Corry Oakes, CEO of OTO Development. “The strength of the economy in Spartanburg leads us to believe that this is the perfect time to bring another hotel to the place where we live and work.”
