Auro Hotels has announced the opening of its AC Hotel by Marriott Greenville Downtown located at the corner of Main and Broad streets in the heart of Greenville, SC. The eight-story hotel has 196 guestrooms and suites, seven food and beverage concepts, nearly 29,000 square feet of meeting and event space, and a private collection of art with more than 100 works by 35 local artists.
Auro Hotels also celebrates the opening of the first of the hotel’s seven food and beverage concepts, Paloma, a Mediterranean-inspired tapas bar located on the ground floor with indoor and outdoor dining. The space is separated by a NanaWall that opens to chic tables with white umbrellas for al fresco dining. Auro Hotels will debut its additional food and beverage concepts located throughout the project this April, including Juniper, the 16,000-square-foot rooftop space with multiple dining zones, as well as The Press Room, a modern speakeasy that will provide an intimate cocktail bar experience.
The AC Hotel Greenville Downtown is anchored by six pillars, including "textile mills, the art scene, bygone spaces, nature and mountains, community and The Greenville News," whose offices were previously located on the site. The destination and local area have inspired the look and feel of the property and its seven restaurants and bars: Juniper, The Secret Garden, Fire Box, The Press Room, Paloma, Social Burger and AC Kitchen. Design elements that reference Greenville include a metal mesh curtain suspended above the bar in Paloma nodding to The Peace Center, as well as the entrance to The Press Room, which will incorporate relics from The Greenville News archives.
The hotel’s art collection complements the modern design and includes works by both emerging and established artists in a range of mediums and styles.
