AC Hotel Clearwater Beach now open with several dining options and amenities

A couple months ago I reported AC Hotel Clearwater Beach was scheduled to open some time this summer. Well, I have good news: it’s officially open!

The hotel opened its doors last weeks, bringing its “forward-thinking design” to Florida’s west coast. Guests can enjoy waterfront views form any one of the 144 rooms or from Mediterranean rooftop space Soirée on the 10th floor. To celebrate the opening, AC Hotel Clearwater Beach is offering a special “Try Our New Hotel” promo until September 30, which includes 20% off rates (starting at $259/night) for a minimum of two nights, plus several other discount offers and packages.

“Thanks to our unbeatable location and AC brand amenities, the AC Hotel Clearwater Beach brings a unique blend of sophistication and relaxation that’s a perfect complement to this waterfront destination’s vibe,” said General Manager Jeff Lidinsky. “We’ve embraced the essence of AC brand amenities and details to provide experiences that genuinely matter to overnight guests.”

I’m sure we’ll all enjoy the lighting for our IG pics and videos inside the AC Kitchen. On the menu is a European-inspired breakfast including cage-free eggs or vegan options like Open Faced Toast or Cazuela (a baked egg specialty), hand-shaved prosciutto, fresh croissants and Nespresso made-to-order. AC Lounge is where we can pre-game over Spanish tapas and sharable plates plus a curated variety of local craft beers, handcrafted cocktails, and wines. The 5th floor is where we can find poolside spot Umbra serving frozen cocktails and draft beers along with wraps, flatbreads, salads, and sliders. 

Other hotel amenities include a resort-style pool, Media Salon for small meetings up to 5 people, a 24-hour fitness center, and a library-focused workspace in case there’s a little bit of business you need to tend to. 

AC Hotel Clearwater Beach is located at 395 Coronado Dr.
