Choice Hotels, Koucar begin construction on Cambria Hotel in US


Choice Hotels International and Koucar Management have broken ground on the Cambria Hotel Detroit Downtown in Detroit, US.

Scheduled to open in 2020, the six-storey, 158-room hotel will be located at 600 W Lafayette Blvd, Detroit city in Michigan.

The new hotel will become the Cambria brand’s second hotel in Michigan, while nine other Cambria hotels have already been opened in 2019, together representing over 1,200 upscale rooms.

Three more Cambria hotels are expected to be opened in top-tier markets across the country by the end of 2019.

Choice Hotels upscale brands senior vice president Janis Cannon said: “We are thrilled to see this project further Detroit’s inspiring economic growth and we are proud to be a player in the ongoing development of this vibrant and historic community.

“The hotel’s desirable location in the city’s booming downtown central business district will appeal to an influx of business professionals and leisure travelers to the Motor City.

“We look forward to this location joining the award-winning Cambria Hotel Traverse City in providing Michigan travelers with locally inspired lodging options to meet all their travel needs.”

The project is located near several national corporate headquarters, including Ford, General Motors, Chrysler and Quicken Loans, Wayne State University, Henry Ford Hospital, Detroit Medical Center and TechTown — Detroit’s urban technology and research centre.

Additionally, many event venues such as the TCF Convention Centre, Little Caesars Arena, Comerica Park and Ford Field, as well as a number of museums, breweries and restaurants are located near the hotel site.

The Cambria Hotel Detroit Downtown will offer several amenities, including spa-style bathrooms with Bluetooth mirrors, guestrooms, rooftop bar with pool, onsite restaurant Verona by Fabio Viviani, multi-function meeting space, ballroom and fitness centre with spa.
The hotel is being developed under a joint venture between Means Group of Detroit and Koucar Management of Troy.

Currently, there are 48 Cambria hotels across the US in cities, such as Chicago; Dallas; Los Angeles; Nashville, Tennessee; New York; New Orleans; Phoenix; and Washington, DC.
