Birmingham premier shopping destination, the Mailbox, has become the first location in the UK to welcome Marriott’s AC Hotels brand.
Within Marriott global portfolio you will find the design-led lifestyle brand AC Hotels. Operating in over 90 sites across Europe and North America, AC Hotels combine style with a contemporary feel for all customers.
Housed in the vacated site previously left by Ramada Hotel at the Mailbox, the refurbished hotel now includes 90 guest rooms featuring modern technologies resulting in a comfortable environment boasting everyday comforts. The hotel’s lounge area – AC Lounge, transforms into a destination bar come the evening serving up some of the finest signature styles and tapas-style small plates.
Through the Mailbox’s re-development we have seen the Harvey Nichols store transform into a 45,000 sq ft store. The addition of AC Hotels only marks another landmark for the Mailbox which also saw the likes of Armani Collezioni and Kitchen Gallery this year.
The Mailbox also unveiled its Urban Room last year when it officially re-opened providing customers with a luxurious space to relax and unwind. The space also plays host to many of Birmingham’s exhibitions and social activities after hours.
David Pardoe, head of marketing, retail and tenant engagement at the Mailbox, stated:
Whether it’s the first Harvey Nichols concept store or the first Everyman Cinema in the Midlands, the Mailbox has played host to a number ‘firsts’. With AC Hotels choosing the Mailbox as the first location in the UK to welcome the brand, this further cements our reputation as a premium destination.
