AC Hotel by Marriott Opens in Split

AC Hotels by Marriott®, known for its design-centric approach to hospitality, has marked its Croatian debut with the grand opening of AC Hotel by Marriott Split.

Nestled high within the Westgate Tower, the hotel offers guests unparalleled views of both the Adriatic Sea and the picturesque cityscape of Split.

Matthew Boettcher, Vice President and Global Brand Leader of Distinctive Select Brands, expressed his enthusiasm about the expansion, "We're thrilled to introduce the AC Hotels' design-driven experience to the Dalmatian Coast. Located at the heart of Split, the new AC Hotel is set to provide an impeccable experience for all, be it business or leisure."



Designed by the acclaimed architect Otto Barić in collaboration with Atellior Studio, the hotel boasts modern aesthetics, seamlessly blending spaces with its warm and inviting color scheme. Guests have the unique opportunity to glimpse a part of a Roman aqueduct, dating back 1700 years, that runs through the property. The hotel's communal spaces double as zones of comfort and functionality, catering to both business meetings and casual gatherings. Moreover, the AC Lounge is reminiscent of an exquisite gallery, adorned with art from notable Croatian artist Vatroslav Kuliš.

The hotel houses 214 guest rooms, designed with a minimalist touch, ensuring that guests can tailor their experience according to their needs. Each room offers a sweeping view of the bustling city below.



Food enthusiasts can indulge in the delightful Mediterranean dishes served at Laureto Restaurant under the guidance of Croatian Chef Goran Šikić. Additionally, the Cumano Bar promises to captivate guests with its assortment of innovative cocktails, including their signature AC Gin & Tonic.

With amenities ranging from the 178 SPA, complete with an indoor pool and sauna, to a vast meeting space and a state-of-the-art gym, guests can enjoy a holistic experience. Ljubica Bauk, the hotel's General Manager, expressed confidence in the potential impact of the hotel on local tourism, emphasizing its role in boosting the economy and curating unparalleled experiences for its guests.

Situated in Croatia's second-largest city, the AC Hotel by Marriott Split not only offers quick access to famed spots like the Diocletian's Palace and the Riva promenade but also serves as a launchpad for adventures to the serene Dalmatian islands such as Hvar, Brac, and Vis.
