 1.  The AC Hotels by Marriott have originated in Spain and are a fairly new presence in the U.S.

Its European Modern aesthetic reflects three key values: purposefulness, simplicity and elegance We offer a sense of domesticity, a feeling of privacy and an atmosphere of coziness. We offer an urban modern, high-style and carefully edited experience, for a feeling of harmony and creativity. The AC Hotel New York Downtown is a brand new hotel, construction project from the ground up. It is located right next to the South Street Seaport which provides extraordinary views from all of our guestrooms. The AC Downtown will be the second AC Hotel to open up in New York City.

  1. What does it make it a wedding go-to destination? We loved the fact that all rooms have the view.

We have 274 guestrooms in the hotel and our focus is on hosting Wedding Room Blocks especially on weekends. This means that we can accommodate from 10 rooms up to 100 rooms on a given weekend. Each inquiry is processed individually to ensure that we are offering the best discounted rate for the group.

One of the special offers for Bride & Groom is the Terrace Room which has a walk-out private terrace space that overlooks the East River. This is very uncommon in NYC and we are proud to be one of the only hotels Downtown with outside Terrace rooms. The standard rooms (without Terrace) will also have beautiful East River views with our floor to ceiling windows.

Some of the other perks include a Bridal Amenity for The Bride & Groom which will be available upon the arrival, as well as Double Marriott Rewards points.

Finally, we have an AC Lounge & Kitchen which are suitable to be used for functions such as receptions. This space can accommodate up to 60 people for a semi-private event.

  1. New York City is a perfect destination for weddings. Some of the most popular NY1 Minute wedding ceremonies are on Brooklyn Bridge and in South Street Seaport. Tell us a bit about the attractions in the area.

There are so many things to be seen and experienced within walking distance. For people who love water, history and individualized shopping, there is Pier 17, South Street Seaport and Westfield Mall.
