Cleveland Circle hotel to open in April

The AC Hotel at the Circle, where the Cleveland Circle Cinema and the Applebee's used to be, should open in April, just in time for BC graduation season, its manager, Ronald Rockelein, said today.

Rockelein appeared before the Boston Licensing Board to seek its approval for the chain's plan to buy the liquor license now held by Chau Chow City on Essex Street in Chinatown.

The 162-room hotel is part of a project that also includes a senior-citizen apartment building.
