AC Hotels by Marriott announced the opening of AC Hotel Cape Town Waterfront marking the debut of the brand in Middle East and Africa. Owned and developed by the Amdec Group, the hotel demonstrates the sophisticated and timeless European design that is true to the AC Hotel brand, interpreted for its Cape Town location. Conveniently located just minutes away from the buzzing Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, the hotel is just a 25-minute drive from Cape Town International Airport within the city’s thriving central business district.

“The opening of this hotel reinforces our commitment to driving growth for our lifestyle brands in South Africa in response to a continued demand from discerning travellers seeking hotels with style and functional design, while also providing unique and authentic experiences,” said Alex Kyriakidis President and Managing Director Middle East and Africa Marriott International.

Commenting on the announcement, James Wilson, Amdec Group CEO says: “We are proud to pave the way for Marriott International’s growth plans in South Africa and help to open up new markets for the world’s leading hotel company and its many loyal guests from around the globe.”

With 188 spacious and stylish yet efficiently designed rooms that boast unparalleled views of the imposing Table Mountain, Lion’s Head and Signal Hill, AC Hotel Cape Town Waterfront introduces a “new way to hotel” to the dynamic city of Cape Town. The hotel houses the signature AC Lounge, a creative hotspot by day and social hub by night that serves local craft and as well as expertly made signature beverages. Guests can savor the brand’s Spanish roots with delectable tapas from fresh and locally sourced ingredients at the AC Kitchen or have a quick bite at the AC Market, offering convenient grab and go.

Other features include the AC Library, a quiet space lined with interesting and ever-evolving reading material tucked away from the buzz as well as a fitness center with state-of-the-art equipment. Located within walking distance from the Cape Town International Convention Centre, it also features four flexible meeting rooms and a boardroom with a total of 250 sqm of event space, boasting natural light and stunning Harbour views.
