Design-Driven Hotel Opens in Ridgeland, Announces Plans for Grand Opening Celebration.

The highly anticipated AC Hotel by Marriott Jackson Ridgeland, the brand's first property in Mississippi, will begin welcoming guests on Thursday, January 27, 2022. The design-driven hotel is a collaboration between local developer Kerioth Corporation and hospitality manager Mckibbon Hospitality. AC Hotel Jackson Ridgeland adds a sophisticated, urban-inspired lodging option to the Township at Colony Park, a vibrant mixed-use neighborhood in the heart of the Ridgeland community.

Purposefully designed, AC Hotel Jackson Ridgeland reflects an urban-inspired development with its use of modern, premium materials and textures with the use of wood, metal, ceramic, fabric, steel, and glass. Upon entering, the lobby features elegantly designed, multi-functional spaces in warm tones and rich finishes. Carefully curated works of art adorn the walls and surfaces with sensible lighting and distinctive touches that create a sophisticated environment that is both contemporary and warm. Jackson-based architect Barron Studio was selected to oversee the design of the project, along with hospitality design specialists at Design Force Corporation.

The five-story structure features 132 guest rooms and suites that were mindfully curated to embody elegance and comfort to match the needs of both leisure and business travelers. Guest rooms feature sleek furnishings, an open closet system, and hardwood floors. Free of traditional hotel room distractions, the neutral color palette and artfully designed layout offers the ideal lodging for remote work and relaxation. AC Hotel Jackson Ridgeland provides thoughtful services and amenities such as a 24-hour fitness center, business center, on-site parking, and mobile check-in options.

The AC Lounge® offers guests a sleek space of reprieve by day and a lively social gathering spot by night. The bar features a carefully curated menu of artisanal cocktails, local craft beers, and tapas-styled small bites. Hotel guests and locals alike can mingle among the inviting furnishings while enjoying an AC Signature Gin Tonic cocktail.

Each morning, the AC Kitchen, which is styled in the image of a residential kitchen, serves European-inspired continental breakfast selections, including freshly sliced prosciutto and signature butter croissants imported from France. The multi-functional space converts to a communal table in the evenings and can be utilized as a meeting space.
