Located in the Westport District of Kansas City, the 123-room hotel will be renovated and converted as the first of this brand in the US.
Noble CEO Mit Shah said: "Marriott is a long-standing brand partner of Noble and we are excited to help launch the AC by Marriott brand in the United States."
The Kansas City AC Hotel will feature European-inspired design, local influenced museum-quality artefacts and technology enabled functional spaces to address the needs of travellers while connecting them with urban vibe of the city.
Noble principal Ben Brunt said: "Our ability to deliver a product targeted to Westport and its surrounding businesses will allow us to maximise operating performance and add substantial value to this investment."
