AC Hotel – Des Moines, Iowa

The AC Hotel takes a Neo-Modernism approach to design – it’s an experience that is stylish, yet efficient. Using a mix of complimentary materials including brick, limestone, aluminum, and fiber cement, the architecture uses a series of monolithic shapes, optimized for functionality. Located in the East Village of Des Moines, a vibrant and diverse neighborhood of retail, restaurants and nightlife. The AC Hotel is home to Heart of America’s newest concept, The Republic on Grand, a rooftop bar featuring eclectic American cuisine, craft cocktails and downtown city views – with seating indoors and outside.
