AC Hotel Orlando Downtown is slated to open its doors on January 12, 2021 as the area’s first lifestyle hotel.

The hotel expertly combines the next-gen style of AC Hotels with the under-the-radar rhythm of downtown Orlando.

SkyBar, the property’s elevated bar experience, offers a lively cocktail program and light bites that are sure to satisfy while guests enjoy unrivaled panoramic views of downtown Orlando.
