LOUISVILLE, Ky. (March 29, 2018) – The AC Hotel Louisville Downtown, located in the Nulu (New Louisville) neighborhood at 727 East Market Street, is accepting reservations for Wednesday, May 2. The new five-story hotel, nestled among Nulu’s shops, restaurants, bars and art galleries, is making final touches before opening its doors.

The hotel has created buzz during the last year for its unique modular construction approach. Reservations can be made by visiting achotellouisville.com.

Located at the north corner of Market and Shelby Streets in the heart of the NuLu neighborhood, AC Hotel Louisville Downtown will feature a distinctive European-inspired design and décor package appealing to design-conscious travelers who also want a location that offers an experiential stay. Sleek furnishings and refined design with emphasis on technology will comprise key aspects of the experience. The AC Lounge will serve up handcrafted cocktails in an atmosphere distinct from any other downtown Louisville hotel, complementing the fun and quirky vibe of its NuLu surroundings.

“We are elated to open our doors to guests and visitors,” said Mike Reidy, general manager. “Our location, in the heart of NuLu, is a great opportunity to invest in this thriving district and help support nearby businesses as we are able to offer our guests a range of entertainment and cultural experiences right outside our doors and across all of Louisville.”

The five-story, 156-room hotel is 73,000 s.f., with a 195-parking space garage. The property is being developed by The 725 Partners: Ron and Mollie Turnier who founded Creation Gardens; Rob Webber, chief operating officer of Creation Gardens; local developer Terry Chynoweth and Steve Kersey, the lead architect and partner of Kersey and Kersey.

Concord Hospitality Enterprises based in Raleigh will manage the property, which will operate as an AC Hotel by Marriott brand. Assisting with the financing are the Whitman Peterson real-estate investment and management company and the Bluegrass International Fund.
