The Buckhead neighborhood of Atlanta is known as the “Beverly Hills of the East” with elegant homes on landscaped streets, as well as independent art galleries, upscale retail and trendy restaurants and bars. Marriott’s AC Hotel in Buckhead delivers a boutique hotel experience that primarily serves and attracts millennials. But with 11 other 3-4-star hotels in the immediate area, their design had to go above and beyond. The hotel installed View Dynamic Glass to provide guests with the best high tech, luxury experience.
Guests judge hotels primarily based on the room quality. At the AC Hotel Atlanta Buckhead, guests walk into rooms filled with natural daylight, including bathrooms which are often poorly lit. View intelligence helps ensure the room is always at a comfortable temperature. And guests can adjust the window tint, allowing a new level of personalized experience.
The AC Hotel also removed all curtains from the fitness center and pool, and programmed View to stay tinted at all times. This prevents people from looking inside, while guests enjoy unobstructed views out. In addition, AC Lounge that is adjacent to the outdoor pool is more comfortable without dealing with glare off the pool or having to pull shades down.
