Cambria Hotel New Haven University Area Opens

ROCKVILLE, Maryland—Cambria Hotels added New Haven, Connecticut to its lineup of properties following the opening of the Cambria Hotel New Haven University Area. The opening of the six-story, 130-room hotel is the brand’s first property in Connecticut and joins the recently added Cambria Hotel Boston Somerville as well as soon-to-open Cambria Hotel Portland Downtown Old Port and Cambria Hotel Manchester South Windsor.

The Cambria hotel is within walking distance of Yale University, as well as dining, shopping, and entertainment in the city’s downtown. In addition to providing guests with access to New Haven attractions such as East Rock Park, Bradley Point, and Hammonasset Beach State Park, the hotel serves as the home base for business travelers visiting area employers including Amphernol, Assa Abloy, New Alliance Bank, and Southern Connecticut State University.

“Our goal is to thoughtfully expand the Cambria footprint into markets that will deliver exceptional value to owners and guests, and the Cambria Hotel New Haven University Area represents the ideal addition to our growing East Coast portfolio,” said Janis Cannon, senior vice president, upscale brands, Choice Hotels. “New Haven has long been pegged as the ‘Cultural Capital of Connecticut.’ In addition to its high concentration of top academic institutions, the city boasts the second largest bioscience cluster in New England and has consistently ranked as a top U.S. hub for technology startups. We could not be prouder to bring another outstanding upscale product to market and know that whatever the travel occasion is, the state’s first Cambria will connect modern travelers to the best Elm City has to offer.”
