MARSEILLE, FRANCE—AC Hotels by Marriott has opened its fifth hotel in France, the AC Hotel Marseille Velodrome, in the heart of the business district here.
The 126-room hotel offers close proximity to the Calanques National Park, Notre-Dame de la Garde basilica, the historic district and the Vieux Port. The property is 30 minutes from the International Marseille Provence airport and 10 minutes from the Saint Charles train station.
Reflecting the contemporary architecture of the city, the guestrooms incorporate an urban color-scheme with hints of bright color, clean lines and hardwood floors. Furniture is lifted from the ground to create a sense of space and white linens are used to craft a look that is both refined and elegant.
The hotel’s Oh Massalia restaurant serves authentic Mediterranean cuisine amid a landscaped garden. For small meetings and events, the hotel features one versatile space for up to 12 people featuring the latest technology. The hotel offers complimentary WiFi throughout all rooms and public spaces.
The new hotel joins AC Hotel Ambassadeur Antibes, Juan-les-Pins, AC Hotel Nice, AC Hotel Paris Porte Maillot and AC Hotel Paris Le Bourget in France. Marriott will bring 22 new AC hotels slated to open in 2016.
