The vibrant design of the new AC Hotel in Raleigh’s North Hills neighborhood connects travelers and local residents to the community and its many public amenities. The project features a unique rooftop sky lobby and amenity floor as its focal point. A dynamic architectural projection engages guests from the street-level entry, running vertically along a glass elevator – cheekily referred to as the stairway to seven – and out to the trellised seventh-level rooftop deck. This sophisticated space consistently brings home accolades as Raleigh’s top rooftop bar and restaurants. The amenity floor’s open floor plan offers panoramic views of North Hill’s dynamic mixed-use setting.

As the first AC property in North Carolina, our designers collaborated with Marriott to create a true local experience while delivering the high-style, European sophistication that defines the brand. Read more about our partnership with Marriott on dozens of AC hotels across the nation.
