Athena Hospitality Group began construction on Cambria Hotels’ second Nashville hotel. Scheduled to open in 2020, the 130-room Cambria Hotel Nashville Airport follows the Cambria Hotel Nashville Downtown, which opened in 2018.

Cambria currently has more than 40 hotels open in the United States with plans to add more in Anaheim and Napa, Calif.; Boston; and Houston. Overall, the company has more than 100 hotels open or in the pipeline in the United States and Canada.

"The first Cambria hotel in Tennessee's capital made such a splash in its first year that we're especially excited to bring the Cambria Hotel Nashville Airport project to life," Janis Cannon, SVP, upscale brands, Choice Hotels International, said in a statement. "Nashville is high on travelers' lists of destinations to visit and boasts one of the country's fastest-growing economies, especially in the healthcare sector. All of these reasons point to Nashville as the ideal market to welcome another Cambria hotel."
