The renovation of the AC Hotel Frisco Colorado by Marriott® is now complete, nearly two years after Denver-based hotel company 5 Senses Hospitality Management acquired the hotel in 2021. AC Hotels is part of Marriott Bonvoy’s portfolio of 30 extraordinary brands.
Located on 1202 Summit Boulevard in Frisco, off I-70, the property is close to some of Summit County’s most in-demand ski resorts including Breckenridge, Keystone, Copper Mountain, Beaver Creek, Arapahoe Basin and Vail. The property is only six miles away from Sapphire Point, a popular hiking trail and wedding destination, along with the Dillion Reservoir, a 300-acre lake, which is only minutes away.
Keeping sustainability at its core, the hotel underwent a significant renovation in which it recycled 48,000 pounds of scrap metal and saved 22,500 pounds of material from Colorado landfills. Additionally, the hotel salvaged and donated 10 mattresses and more than 150 appliances, recovered 20 couches from the landfill stream, and recycled 800 pounds of universal waste, including 400 HHW units, CFL bulbs and ballasts, as well as donated the property’s gym equipment for reuse.
With 133 rooms to choose from, the property is pet-friendly and includes amenities such as a state-of-the-art fitness room with floor-to-ceiling windows and an outdoor hot tub with a fire pit both overlooking the Tenmile Range from Frisco to Breckenridge. The property also offers a game room, private dining and meeting room, locker room, indoor swimming pool, library, business center, and an AC Restaurant and AC Lounge® serving local spirits, beer and wine.
“Summit County is a remarkable, unique location for our expansion of the 5 Senses Hospitality Management portfolio. Nestled in the heart of Colorado’s most stunning landscapes and surrounded by some of the most iconic world-class ski resorts in the Rocky Mountain region, the AC Hotel Frisco Colorado will provide guests with an oasis as they immerse themselves in the great outdoors,” said Chris Manley, founder and president of 5 Senses Hospitality Management.
