Design-Driven AC Hotels Expands EMEA Portfolio with AC Hotel Stockholm Ulriksdal
AC Hotels by Marriott®, Marriott International’s design-led lifestyle brand, has expanded its Europe, Middle East and Africa footprint with the opening of its first property in the Swedish capital, AC Hotel Stockholm Ulriksdal. Built with a perfect blend of form and function, the hotel offers travellers the ideal base to discover the striking architecture and Scandinavian design Stockholm has to offer.
Led by world-renowned design company, Living Design, the interior design features a walnut colour scheme creating a delicate balance and flow through colour, texture, and arrangement. The hotel takes shape with clean modern lines, aesthetically proportioned spaces, and a balanced use of premium materials distinctive to the AC Hotels brand. The result is a harmonious interior concept that offers guests the perfect setting for work, play or relaxation.
“We’re delighted to expand the AC Hotels EMEA portfolio to Sweden and invite travellers to experience a destination that matches the brand’s passion for clean and timeless design,” said Jenni Benzaquen, Vice President, Brand, EMEA, Marriott International.
The 223-room AC Stockholm Ulriksdal offers five guest room categories: Standard King, Standard Queen, Standard Single, Deluxe King, Junior Suite. Embracing AC Hotels’ focus on harmonious design and tailored style, each room is free of clutter to maximise the sense of openness and remove friction from guests’ travels. Guest rooms offer modern design with sleek furnishings, open closet system, and hardwood floors.
The hotel’s communal spaces have all been designed with maximum comfort and function in mind. The signature AC Lounge® is a collaborative space of creativity and collaboration by day and a hub of social activity by night. The lounge features inviting furnishings, art, and modern touches that evoke a feeling of a well-curated gallery. Guests can enjoy a selection of tapas-style small bites alongside a signature AC gin tonic or crafted cocktail made by the hotel’s expert mixologist.
As well as spacious, comfortable guest rooms, the new property offers a Vitalize Gym & Wellness spa offering massage treatments, fitness counselling, a spa restaurant, pool, and steam room.
The hotel is situated in Solna, an established business park, home to both local and international companies just north of Stockholm city centre, which can be reached in less than 10 minutes via the city’s efficient public transport links. From the sleekest contemporary buildings to houses dating back to the 13th century, guests will have easy access to a range of attractions including famous museums and galleries, in a city which has style embedded in its DNA.
AC Hotels currently operates over 155 design-driven hotels globally with a growing pipeline in Europe, Middle East and Africa.
