Cambria hotel opens in Minneapolis

Cambria Hotels, an upscale brand franchised by Choice Hotels International Inc., continues its expansion across the Twin Cities with the opening of the Cambria Hotel Minneapolis Downtown.

The new six-story, 121-room hotel joins the nearby Cambria Hotel Minneapolis Maple Grove and Cambria Hotel Bloomington Mall of America Minneapolis Airport in the market. It was developed by Hawkeye Hotels and JR Hospitality.

Located in the city’s Gateway District (Minneapolis’ original downtown), the hotel is close to Target Center, U.S. Bank Stadium, the Minneapolis Convention Center, Gutherie Theater and the University of Minnesota campus. Top area employers include Ameriprise Financial, Ecolab, General Mills and Target.

“The Minneapolis-St. Paul area has it all: a flourishing corporate community, a diverse workforce and a world-class arts and cultural scene,” said Janis Cannon, SVP, upscale brands, Choice Hotels. “It’s easy to see why so many Fortune 500 companies are proud to call the Twin Cities home, and why it’s an ideal location to expand Cambria’s upscale offerings to even more travelers in the region. Whether they’re in town for a weekend getaway or a week-long business trip, we know the Cambria Hotel Minneapolis Downtown, like the rest of our Minneapolis portfolio, will surprise and delight visitors with tailored amenities and curated design in an unbeatable location to help make the most of their time in the City of Lakes.”

Hotel amenities include multi-purpose indoor spaces, on-site dining, multi-function meeting and event spaces and a fitness center.
