AC Hotels by Marriott to Liberty Center in Cincinnati

Columbus, Ohio Steiner + Associates has announced that Liberty Center, the $350 million mixed-use project being co-developed with Bucksbaum Retail Properties, will open the newest AC Hotels by Marriott location in the fall of 2015.

While the specifics are still being worked out, Steiner + Associates expects the hotel to feature approximately 130 rooms, 3,000 sq. ft. of meeting space, a second floor pool and a library that will serve as the business center. In the lobby, the AC Lounge will offer a full breakfast buffet. The hotel will also include a number of patio and balcony spaces overlooking the town square.

The AC Hotels by Marriott concept was launched in Europe in 2011 as a joint venture between Marriott International and Spain’s AC Hotels. The brand has a portfolio of nearly 80 hotels in Spain, Italy, Portugal, and France. All together, those hotels have almost 8,500 rooms. In the U.S., there are plans for AC hotels in locations like Miami, New York City and New Orleans.

Liberty Center, located at the I-75 and SR 129 interchange, will feature more than 800,000 sq. ft. of retail, more than 75,000 sq. ft. of office space and approximately 220 residential units, spanning 64 acres. Last year, Dillard’s signed into the project with plans to build a two-story flagship location at Liberty Center. Cobb Theatres will also be bringing their lauded CineBistro, dine-in concept to the project.
“As of today, the retail component of Liberty Center is more than 50% committed and the project is on track for a Fall 2015 opening,” said Yaromir Steiner, CEO of Steiner + Associates.
