Choice Hotels International partnered with PNK Group Investments to begin construction on the Cambria Hotel Los Angeles—Spring Street in downtown Los Angeles. Slated to open in 2020, the 13-story, 180-room hotel is the adaptive reuse of a Historic Core area building built in 1927 that was once the office for the Los Angeles Police Department vice squad.

Located at 419 S. Spring St., the hotel will be situated along Gallery Row and within walking distance to Little Tokyo's shopping boutiques and trendy restaurants. The hotel will be close to a number of cultural and entertainment options, including Grand Central Market, the Museum of Contemporary Art, The Staples Center, Dodger Stadium, L.A. Live and the Regent Theatre DTLA.

"Downtown Los Angeles has experienced major revitalization in the past decade, making Spring Street an ideal location to meet the renewed interest in the growing area. Choice is committed to expanding the Cambria Hotels brand throughout L.A. and this hotel joins the already open Cambria Hotel LAX, with several other new construction hotels in development in Anaheim, Burbank and Calabasas," Janis Cannon, SVP, upscale brands at Choice Hotels, said in a statement. "With the recent relocation of high-profile company headquarters like Spotify and Warner Music Group, as well as the increase in local attractions, Downtown Los Angeles has reinvented itself as a destination for business and leisure travelers. We're excited for this Cambria Hotel adaptive-reuse project to be a part of the renaissance."
