AC Hotel Chapel Hill Downtown -- a European-inspired, frictionless, elegant hotel for the modern traveler -- is notable as the first Marriott-branded modular construction project on the East Coast. The property also plays a pivotal role in the revitalization of Chapel Hill NC’s central business district.
The 4-story, 123-key hotel is nestled in the heart of Chapel Hill – adjacent to the town’s social district and just around the corner from the University of North Carolina – adding distinctly Southern elements to the AC brand’s European vibe. Its contemporary façade complements surrounding downtown structures, both commercial and residential, mixing modern architecture and local accents to capture the character of this historic college community. A central location makes it easy for hotel guests to park in the onsite garage, then get everywhere else via sneakers or bikes. Located at an intersection where business activity gives way to residential, AC Hotel Chapel Hill is a key component in the revitalization of the community’s urban core. Designed to ease the transition between larger commercial buildings and homes in the Northside neighborhood, the hotel wings “step down” toward the houses, blending into the residential scale and allowing sunlight into the streetscape. Those who prefer a ride can access the AC's complimentary shuttle, which operates within a 3-mile radius of the hotel.
AC Hotel Chapel Hill is a LEED-certified property.
