AUSTIN, Texas – Cambria Hotels, an upscale brand franchised by Choice Hotels International, has officially begun construction on the Cambria Hotel Austin Downtown in Austin, Texas.
The 14-story, 212-room hotel is expected to open in the summer of 2023, joining other properties in the state capital anticipated to open that year, including the Cambria Hotel Austin Airport and Cambria Hotel North Austin Near The Domain. The brand currently has six open hotels across the state located in Dallas, Houston, McAllen, Plano, Richardson, and Southlake. Representatives from Choice Hotels, developer Stratus Development Partners, and local dignitaries attended the ground-breaking to commemorate the occasion.
“As the saying goes, ‘everything’s bigger in Texas,’ and we’re thrilled to make our presence known by bringing another exciting option to guests in the state capital,” said Janis Cannon, senior vice president, upscale brands, Choice Hotels. “Austin offers a little bit of everything, from major businesses if you’re traveling for work to world-class events, a top-notch food and art scene, and many great outdoor activities for those traveling for leisure. The Cambria Hotel Austin Downtown will be at the center of all those possibilities, in addition to offering little luxuries and upscale amenities that make for a memorable experience. We look forward to continuing the rapid growth of the brand in the most sought-after destinations.”
The Cambria Hotel Austin Downtown will feature upscale amenities and indulgences intended to appeal to modern travelers, including:
– Multipurpose indoor and outdoor spaces, including an outdoor pool, patio and terrace
– Indoor-outdoor rooftop bar with 360-degree views of the city
