The brand has made its debut in Turkey and opened its sixtieth hotel in Spain, and is also constructing a property in Tel Aviv, Israel. 

The 98-room AC Hotel Istanbul Maçka is located in the city’s Akaretler residential neighbourhood, close to the Istanbul Congress Centre. Its facilities include three meeting rooms, a fitness centre and a sauna with two treatment rooms.

The 91-room AC Hotel Colón Valencia is the brand’s second property in the Spanish city. It boasts three meeting rooms, a business centre and fitness suite.

Projected to open in January 2016, the AC Hotel Herzliya is in Tel Aviv’s central business district of Herzliya and adjacent to the Herzliya Business Park, which is home to companies such as Siemens and Microsoft. Planned facilities include two meeting rooms, with the largest accommodating 250 people in a cabaret style set-up.  

The launches bring to 80 the number of signed or open AC Hotels by Marriott properties in Europe.
