Choice Hotels International and an affiliate of True North Studio began construction on the new Cambria hotel in downtown Phoenix in the Roosevelt Row Arts District. Slated to open ahead of schedule in late 2019, the seven-story, 127-room hotel will be the third Cambria property to enter the growing Phoenix area, joining the Cambria Hotel Phoenix Chandler-Fashion Center and Cambria Hotel North Scottsdale Desert Ridge.

The hotel offers guests convenient access to the Sky Harbor International Airport, Phoenix Convention Center, the professional sports stadiums of MLB's Arizona Diamondbacks and NBA's Phoenix Suns, Arizona State University, University of Arizona College of Medicine—Phoenix and the Phoenix Biomedical Campus, as well as nearby art studios, galleries, museums, breweries and restaurants. The hotel's location is also within driving distance to several area businesses, including Apple Data Center, Honeywell Aerospace, the Mayo Clini, and Choice Hotels' technology and digital commerce campus.

"As one of the largest and fastest-growing cities in the country, anchored by rising tourism, a rich corporate presence, and thriving arts scene, Phoenix is the perfect destination to welcome several Cambria hotels," Janis Cannon, SVP, upscale brands, Choice Hotels, said in a statement. "Cambria hotels are designed to reflect the neighborhoods in which they are located and the Roosevelt Row location is no exception—guests can expect it to capture the spirit of the community and inspire them to explore, engage, and discover all Phoenix has to offer."
