David M. Schwarz Architects is currently designing a new 10-story AC Hotel by Marriott in Spartanburg, South Carolina. Sited on the west end of the city, the 114-room hotel will serve as a gateway to the historic downtown area.

While crafted in the style of America’s grand hotels, the building’s design will accommodate programmatic and functional elements indicative of successful, contemporary hotels. A 5,000 SF rooftop bar and terrace will serve as a year-round social amenity to visitors and locals alike, offering a 360 view of the city from high above. Similarly, over 2,500 SF of meeting space fulfills an unmet need for business travelers and local groups.

The project project ground in October of 2015, with completion planned for September 2017. You can follow construction progress by checking out the OxBlue construction cam here!
