Earlier this summer we were crazy excited about Marriott's plans to import their Spanish design hotel collection, AC Hotels by Marriott, into the U.S. The stateside version of the brand plans to keep its design-forward integrity as well as remain affordable. Oh and have free WiFi too. (Yes, a Marriott hotel brand with totally free WiFi is happening.)
Now the Miami Herald reports that the first hotel will open in Miami Beach. Claro.
Looking at the developer's Robert Finvarb Companies website, the address for the 150-room hotel is listed as 2912 Collins Avenue which puts it right across the street from the Edition Miami Beach, opening sometime next year. Interestingly, this developer is the same one behind the new Hyatt South Beach in the 1600 block of Collins Avenue. (More to come on that soon.)
While detes are scant on the developer's site, you can expect the following from the hotel:

DEALS, DEALS, DEALS*
· OMNI HOTELS "SUMMER PASSPORT" DEALS: Omni Hotels has just launched their new "Summer Passport" deals which give 15 percent off rates at all their hotels. If you're a member of the Omni Select Guest program, you'll get up to 25 percent off room rates. The program is free to join so we say sign-up and then book your summer vacay. The deal is good from June 3-August 25 but there is limited availability and blackout dates do apply, depending on the hotel.
· W NEW YORK FOR UNDER $200 A NIGHT: We thought finding a hotel room in NYC for under $200 was damn near impossible. Yet we stumbled across this great deal on Expedia for the W New York on Lexington for June 14-17 for just $187 a night. Clearly, midtown on a weekend in the summer is the way to go if you want a hotel deal. Yes, it's in a small aka "Cozy" room and you will have to pay $15 and up for WiFi but still, it's well under $200 a night.
· TEACHERS, TREAT YOURSELF AT THE SAGAMORE IN MIAMI BEACH: Sagamore, The Art Hotel, in Miami Beach is offering teachers 20 percent off room rates with their "Teachers and Educators" package which is available through September 30. The deal also includes free WiFi. Rates start at as low as $175 a night. Teachers must show their teacher ID card upon check-in in order to get discount. The offer is also based upon availability and subject to blackout dates.
· EXPERIENCE AC HOTELS BY MARRIOTT BEFORE THEY COME TO THE STATES: Heading to Europe? Specifically Spain, Italy, Portugal or France? You can stay at an AC Hotel by Marriott for 15 percent less if you book within two weeks of your stay. That way, when AC Hotels open here in the U.S., you can tell everyone you were an "early adopter" of the brand.

Marriott Hotels announced today that they would begin importing their stylish European select service brand, AC Hotels by Marriott into the U.S. and the rest of the Americas, specifically targeting the Generation X and Y travelers aka The Millennials by offering design-forward public spaces and guestrooms at affordable prices. Oh yeah, and with free WiFi too.
Marriott first acquired the Madrid-based AC Hotels from its namesake and designer, Antonio Catalan, back in 2010. Marriott then rebranded the collection as AC Hotels by Marriott and have since grown the collection to about 80 hotels across Spain, Portugal, Italy and France.
The American incarnation of AC Hotels by Marriott will stay true to Catalan's design aesthetic which Brian King, global brand officer for Marriott's endorsed brands, described as "sleek sophistication" with open metal closets and an unusual bath experience. The decor will be a tone-on-tone palette of warm greys and soft charcoal and which King likened to a "beautiful, nicely tailored, gray business suit with an interesting tie." While the design may have a European sensibility, guestrooms will include more American amenities such as full-sized beds, hard-surfaced flooring and lots of outlets and USB ports.
Yet the heart of all AC Hotels will be found in the lobby downstairs.

The AC Vilamari Hotel in Barcelona.
This brand, sprung from the loins of AC Hotels headed by Antonio Catalan who will remain on board, will aggressively go after the business travel and urban-leisure markets in Europe, particularly Spain, and Latin America.
“AC by Marriott” will incorporate the concept and business model of AC Hotels’ urban-style four-star hotel product, characterized by a unique blend of quality, comfort, design and technology, with Marriott International’s global systems, distribution, and sales platforms, particularly Marriott Rewards, one of the world’s largest hospitality loyalty programs with 33 million members.
Yup, that's right. Guests staying at AC By Marriott will be able to tap into the Marriott Rewards loyalty program, earning and using points during their stays.
