When the AC Hotel New York Times Square opened officially on July 24th, after almost five years of planning, design, and construction, it was an all-day affair with AC Hotels by Marriott© finesse, a youthful crowd, and Catalan flair.

That discussion and the party after were fueled by a special gin and tonic drink served in a bespoke glass. [How many hotels get their own video series, custom scent, and drink glass?]
