Marriott announced today that the AC Hotels by Marriott® brand has opened in Split. The hotel is situated in the high floors of the tallest building in Croatia and offers all guests panoramic views of the city and the Adriatic Sea.

AC Hotel Split Room

The 135-meter-high Westgate Tower is now home to the 214-room hotel. The AC Hotel by Marriott® Split is a modern hotel that features a soothing and warm color palette along with natural materials like oak, patinated brass, and linen effect wallpaper.

A glass door provides views of part of a 1700-year-old Roman aqueduct that runs throughout the property. The hotel’s AC Lounge features art by local Croatian artist Vatroslav Kuliš, books, as well as architecture and fashion albums, which makes the space feel like a well-curated gallery.

AC Hotel Restaurant

The hotel’s restaurant, Laureto, offers Croatian coastal cuisine. Its Cumano Bar offers creative cocktails and twists on classics like the signature AC Gin & Tonic. The hotel also has a spa that features an indoor pool, sauna, and steam room, a meeting space for up to 240 people, and a gym with Matrix equipment (and unobstructed views of the Adriatic Sea).

Matthew Boettcher, Vice President and Global Brand Leader, Distinctive Select Brands said:

We are excited to bring AC Hotels’ design-driven guest experience to the Dalmatian Coast, expanding Marriott Bonvoy’s footprint in the region. Housed in a prime location in the city center of Split, AC Hotel by Marriott® Split is set to serve as the perfect base for a seamless, comfortable experience for both business and leisure travelers.”

Ljubica Bauk, General Manager of AC Hotel® by Marriott Split added:

The opening of AC Hotel by Marriott® Split marks an exciting chapter for the local hospitality industry as Marriott International brings the AC brand to Croatia. We hope to contribute significantly to the region’s economic growth by attracting business and leisure travelers alike as well as fostering corporate partnerships. We look forward to welcoming guests to the AC Hotel Split and showcasing the distinctive offerings of our new hotel.”

AC Hotels have 225 hotels under its flag in 32 countries and territories. I’ve stayed at a few and like their simplicity and understated elegance.

Anthony’s Take: We’ve stayed at the Le Meridien Lav in Split, but will have to check out this property next time we’re in the area. The photos look great and rates are reasonable.
