Downtown Steps Up

AC Hotel brings stylish hospitality to San Jose. 


Earlier this year, downtown San Jose welcomed its first new hotel in more than a decade. While a few months late, it was worth the wait: AC Hotel—a Marriott property that has a modern, European sensibility—offers 210 rooms, as well as a cocktail lounge, a state-of-the-art fitness facility and meeting spaces.

Venture outside the seven-story structure to enjoy the heated saltwater pool. Business travelers and staycationers alike will appreciate that the new AC Hotel—the brand’s sole location in California thus far—is within walking distance of local attractions such as SAP Center, the San Jose Convention Center, the Tech Museum, the Museum of Art and the Children’s Discovery Museum.

Suites from $350 per night, 350 W. Santa Clara St., San Jose
