AC Hotel® Cincinnati at the Banks marks construction milestone

The AC Hotel at the Banks
Leadership Team Announced for Design-Led Hotel
The AC Hotel at the Banks is currently achieving a construction milestone with the installation of the signs on the building. The hotel will soon be bringing sophisticated European style to downtown Cincinnati. Situated across from the Great American Ball Park, the design-led property resides in The Banks development – a premier mixed-use office, retail and residential development that serves as home to the Cincinnati Reds, the Cincinnati Bengals, GE’s Global Operations Headquarters and the National Underground Freedom Center.


Located at 135 Joe Nuxhall Way, the hotel is being developed by Eagle Realty Group on behalf of its parent company, Western & Southern Financial Group, and its development and operating partner Winegardner & Hammons Hotel Group, LLC of Cincinnati, Ohio.  

As the AC Hotel Cincinnati at The Banks enters the final stages of construction, WHG, the hotel’s management company, also announced the leadership team for the hotel. Jessica Carlson will be the general manager for the hotel. Carlson has had more than 15 years in the hospitality business, most recently as the general manager for The Phelps, a Residence Inn by Marriott in downtown Cincinnati, also owned by Western & Southern. The Phelps has been ranked in the top 5 percent of the Residence Inn brand for the last five consecutive years and is the number one traveler ranked hotel in downtown Cincinnati on TripAdvisor. The hotel is also home to the acclaimed Top of the Park Rooftop Bar.  

Trevor White will be the assistant general manager, joining the team from the Ohio University Inn in Athens, Ohio, another WHG hotel. The sales team for AC Hotel Cincinnati at the Banks will be Kim Wright, sales account manager, and Adrianne Klopfenstein, sales account manager, both of whom have many years of sales experience in the Cincinnati area.  

Designed with creative, well-traveled, entrepreneurial spirits in mind, the hotel will cater to those who are constantly on the go through its innovative beverage and food programming, intuitive service, locally inspired art and 171 modern guest rooms and suites, many with balconies that overlook the Ohio River, Roebling Suspension Bridge and Smale Park. Both business and leisure guests will appreciate the hotel’s jaw dropping views from the rooftop bar, complimentary Wi-Fi, and a state-of-the-art fitness center. Three distinct meeting spaces are also available to guests of AC Hotel Cincinnati at The Banks, including two intimate, audiovisual-equipped media salons for up to eight people, and an 888-square-foot meeting room.  

The AC Lobby will feature the brand’s signature open-concept spaces with a thoughtfully selected collection of inviting furnishings. Ambient lighting and cozy seating in the AC library and lounge areas invite travelers and locals to relax in chic surroundings, while also creating an effortless space in which to conduct a business meeting or connect with friends over cocktails.  

A twist on the traditional hotel bar, the AC lounge will serve up AC’s signature Gin & Tonic, beer from local breweries, specialty wines, expertly made craft cocktails and a selection of tapas-style small bites. The AC Upper Deck is the rooftop bar and event space overlooking downtown Cincinnati, The Ohio River and Smale Park. The AC kitchen will serve a European-inspired continental breakfast selection of flaky croissants, savory egg tarts and Nespresso coffee.    

AC Hotel Cincinnati at The Banks is holding casting calls for front desk supervisor, valet and housekeeping positions. Those interested in joining the hotel’s dynamic team should go to The Phelps at 506 East Fourth Street from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.
