AC HOTEL by MARRIOTT
601 K Street NW, Washington, DC
The AC is a new 234-room hotel at the corner of 6th & K Streets in Northwest Washington, DC. The hotel features sophisticated lobby finishes and signature touchpoints for this new dynamic brand. The ground floor’s farm-to-table restaurant offers craft food and cocktails and opens out to the street, creating a beautiful sidewalk café. The hotel has a subterranean lounge and bar with the ambiance of a chic club, and a rooftop bar offering patrons and hotel guests fantastic views of the Washington, DC skyline.
The strong geometric design of the building is driven by the concept of simple, austere elegance. The dark iron spot brick reflects light and enlivens the façade during the day and at night. Industrial sash windows add character to the fenestration, giving the building a sense of authenticity.
