AC Hotel Kingston says it is now open for bookings on its website

The all-new hotel will be opening its doors in Jamaica's capital on June 1, 2019 as the first AC Hotel by Marriott to be launched in the Caribbean.

“My family and I are excited to bring one of the most sought-after lifestyle business hotel brands to our hometown, Kingston. The classic European design coupled with features of our Jamaican culture has made for a truly one-of-a-kind combination that the team and I look forward to sharing with our guests,” said Adam Stewart, family lead of AC Hotel Kingston.

“Through this venture I also look forward to building new partnerships and expanding existing ones within our Tourism Linkages Network that is geared towards improving the country's economic standing,” Stewart added.

AC Hotel Kingston, which adds a modern touch to the Kingston skyline, will offer guests a personalised experience in a well-designed space that strikes a balance between work and play.

The chic, European-inspired hotel will welcome guests with a cascading water feature and a driveway elegantly lined with palm trees. Conveniently located in the heart of the capital city's vibrant metropolis, the hotel is in close proximity to the major business and social districts and offers a unique mixture of hill and sea views.

Throughout, the hotel guests will encounter a collection of one-of-a-kind art pieces, each crafted by Jamaican artists, giving guests a small window into the region's art culture and hopefully encourage them to explore the city and discover its story.

The AC Hotel Kingston will offer 220 guest accommodations, including three categories — queen-bedded rooms, king-bedded rooms, and deluxe suites — all purposefully designed for working or unwinding.

The queen-bedded rooms contain two beds and are ideal for families or colleagues on a business trip; the king-bedded rooms each contain a balcony and are perfect for the business traveller who appreciates a well-designed oasis; while the deluxe suites open into a living area that may double as a meeting space.

The hotel features the AC Lounge, a space of creativity by day and a hub of social buzz by night. During the day, guests will be able to exchange ideas or make the final edits to a presentation in this setting designed with the entrepreneurial spirit in mind. At night, the AC Lounge will serve as the perfect spot for guests to enjoy tapas-style hors d'oeuvres and the AC Hotel Kingston's signature cocktail blend, freshly prepared by an expert mixologist. The Lounge will also feature live DJ appearances and a state-of-the-art sound system, creating a vibrant setting for locals and visitors to enjoy the nightlife.

The AC Hotel Kingston is designed to appeal to guests' senses and remove the friction of travel. From its signature scents to the feel-good music that expands beyond the AC Lounge throughout the hotel, guests will be able to draw energy from the hotel's deliberate details.

Staying true to the world-class service that the busy AC Hotel guest expects, AC Hotel Kingston will be equipped with over 11,000 square feet of cutting-edge meeting facilities that can accommodate up to six meetings simultaneously. The spacious conference room will be able to welcome up to 600 guests; the smaller meeting room is fit for up to 50 guests; and for smaller private meetings, two media salons will be available for up to 10 guests each. Each of these meeting spaces will be fitted with the latest audio-visual technology.

The hotel will be fitted with more than 200 solar panels, energy-efficient glass, as well as a check-in desk that caters to guests with accessible needs. In addition, 10 rooms are designed to accommodate wheelchair-bound guests, while there are 17 rooms for guests who are hearing-impaired.

Among its many features, the hotel will also offer a laundromat, and a large, spacious fully equipped gym.

Guests staying at AC Hotel Kingston may use their Marriott Bonvoy Loyalty Points upon booking for discounts on their stay. The Marriott Bonvoy Programme is valid among 6,700 hotels within 130 countries. For more information on the collection of brands offered in the Marriott Bonvoy Programme please visit
