AC Hotel Spartanburg - locally owned by the Johnson family and operated by OTO Development - is the European-inspired AC brand’s first location in South Carolina.
Classic masonry combines with custom accents to craft a façade of decorative stone and brick with a barrel tile roof. Constructed of nearly a quarter-million bricks laid the old-fashioned way, the sustainably-built hotel is on track to attain LEED Silver Certification. The 114-key AC Hotel Spartanburg offers five suites and 109 guestrooms with either two queen-sized beds or a king plus pullout sofa. The hotel’s lobby and second floor showcase a significant selection of masterworks on loan from the nationally acclaimed Johnson Collection. Guests are encouraged to interact with the 40+ objects on view — paintings, works on paper, textiles, and sculpture — created by artists associated with the progressive arts enclave of Black Mountain College. AC Hotel Spartanburg’s three meeting rooms are named for four key figures in Black Mountain College history: Anni and Josef Albers, Ruth Asawa, and Kenneth Noland. Designed for flexibility and awash in natural light, these rooms offer 637, 847 and 1,177 square feet, with the option to combine into one large 2,662-sq.-ft. space. The rooms are easily configured for business meetings — complete with LCD projectors, large drop-down screens, and total connectivity — as well as social events such as wedding parties, class reunions, club luncheons and community gatherings.
