ROCKVILLE, Md. — Cambria Hotels, an upscale brand franchised by Choice Hotels International, has opened its third hotel in Arizona: the Cambria Hotel Downtown Phoenix Convention Center. The seven-story, 127-room property joins two other Cambria locations in the Grand Canyon State: Cambria Hotel Phoenix Chandler-Fashion Center and Cambria Hotel North Scottsdale Desert Ridge.
Located at 222 E. Portland St. in downtown Phoenix’s arts and culture district, the Cambria Hotel Downtown Phoenix Convention Center is near the Children’s Museum of Phoenix, the George Washington Carver Museum and Cultural Center, Sky Harbor International Airport, and the Arizona Science Center. Amusement parks within driving distance include Big Surf waterpark, the LEGOLAND Discovery Center, and Castles N’ Coasters.
“Phoenix is the fastest-growing of America’s five largest cities, making it another ideal location for Cambria as the brand approaches the end of another defining year,” said Janis Cannon, senior vice president, upscale brands, Choice Hotels. “Conveniently located in the lively Roosevelt Row Arts District, guests are equally close to the city’s corporate epicenter and thriving arts scene. The Cambria Hotel Downtown Phoenix captures the area’s creative, innovation-driven culture and is sure to provide experience-hungry travelers with the unique atmosphere and little luxuries they seek.”
The Cambria Hotel Downtown Phoenix Convention Center has a rooftop with event space, a pool with cabanas and bar, and views of the surrounding city. The property also has an onsite restaurant called Poppy, a fitness center, and multi-function meeting and event space.
The hotel is managed by Oxford Hotels & Resorts, LCC, a lifestyle-oriented hotel management company, and was developed by True North Studio, LLC, a local firm with multiple projects nearby that will enhance the Roosevelt Row Arts District and downtown Phoenix.
