The newest hotel in Inverness will open its doors today.

AC Hotel by Marriott, which sits on the banks of the River Ness on Glebe Street, will be managed by Hotel Co 51.

It is part of Marriott Bonvoy’s portfolio of 30 brands and the opening marks its debut in Scotland with the creation of 35 full and part-time jobs.

The four-story hotel will be the largest hotel in the city with 191 bedrooms showcasing the brand’s contemporary design, natural tones and richly textured finishes.

AC Lounge, a signature European-inspired restaurant, will serve classics with a local touch and small bites.

The all-day restaurant will have 60 seats as well as a riverside terrace for outdoor dining available for 30 guests, set to be a hot spot for guests and locals alike.

Guests staying at the hotel have access to a well-equipped 24-hour fitness centre with floor-to-ceiling windows boasting weights and cardio equipment.

The hotel has more than 150 timeless king rooms, including accessible ones, and 30 twins with either river views for several miles or city views.

Each guest room offers sleek desks, open closets and integrated bathrooms with an added sensory experience for guests who would like a lavender turndown.

Joining Hotel Co 51’s portfolio across Europe of 35-plus hotels in eight countries, AC Marriott Inverness is the company’s seventh property in Scotland and 16th in the UK – joining the likes of Moxy Edinburgh Fountainbridge, Courtyard by Marriott SEC in Glasgow and Moxy London Excel.

Wayne Androliakos, UK regional director of operations for Hotel Co 51, said: “We are honoured to open the first AC Marriott in Scotland and it’s in a great position, close to the start and end of the renowned NC500 in the capital of the Highlands.

"AC Marriott is all about offering the perfect blend of form and function at an affordable price, so it will attract a lot of business and leisure travellers who know the Marriott brand well and can rely on what this hotel will deliver.

"At Hotel Co 51 we’re proud that we continue to grow apace, adding to our rapidly expanding portfolio in Europe in strategic locations.”
