AC Hotel Columbus Dublin Names Diamond Public Relations Agency Of Record


Diamond Public Relations welcomes a new element of modern sophistication to its client roster with the addition of AC Hotel Columbus Dublin, managed by Shaner Hotels. The bi-coastal agency headquartered in Miami with an office in Los Angeles, will handle all North American public relations efforts on behalf of AC Hotel Columbus Dublin, as the property prepares to open in August 2017.

The 150-room AC Hotel Columbus Dublin is located in the heart of the upscale Bridge Park neighborhood, just miles away from downtown Columbus, Ohio and walking distance to charming, historic Dublin. The focal point of the hotel will be VASO, the stylish rooftop restaurant and bar, where guests and locals will be able to enjoy sophisticated cocktails paired with creative tapas while taking in breathtaking panoramic views of the Scioto River. Created with the design-savvy entrepreneurial spirit in mind, the hotel will feature spacious, thoughtfully designed guest rooms, lobby and meeting rooms, incorporating elements of European Modernism. A Spanish-inspired breakfast will be offered in its AC Kitchen, featuring freshly baked croissants and pastries, egg dishes, cheeses and sliced prosciutto.

“From the moment I met the progressive team at Diamond Public Relations, I knew they were the ones to help us launch this hotel and tell its story,” said Orcun Turkay, general manager. “We know that the agency’s expertise and creative approach will generate the awareness we need.”

“We love the way the AC Hotels brand celebrates its European roots and caters to entrepreneurial spirits like us, which is why we’re really looking forward to launching the new AC Hotel Columbus Dublin,” said Jody Diamond, president of Diamond Public Relations. “The thoughtful, sophisticated design of the hotel and its playful rooftop restaurant concept make it unlike anything else in the area, so we are going to bring this new property the attention it deserves.”
