One of the first projects of the new hotel union AC Hotels and Marriott promises to be a new hotel in the resort city of Las Palmas on the island of Gran Canaria, which is part of the Canary Islands. AC Iberia hotel, which will be presented under the AC Hotels By Marriott brand, is scheduled to be opened in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria on May 7, 2012.
It will be the second hotel of this network on the island, which is already presented by AC Gran Canaria hotel.

One kilometer from the hotel is located the historic center of Las Palmas, three kilometers away - the famous beach of Las Canteras.

AC Hotels By Marriott is a hotel brand, which creation was announced in January 2011. Its formal existence AC Hotels By Marriott began in June 2011. Prior to joining the Marriott family AC Hotels chain had been one of the largest hotel chains in Spain, which managed in total 90 hotels. In 2009 AC Hotels was named the best hotel company in Spain.
Today Spanish hotel market is experiencing restructuring phase. Many well-known hotel companies in the country sell their assets in order to focus on niche products. One of the striking examples is another major network in Spain - Melia Hotels - which at the end of 2011 sold five its hotels in order to secure repayment of the credit debts. At that time the deal was accounted at about 100 million euros.
