Choice Hotels International signed an agreement with Sound West Group to develop a Cambria hotel in Bremerton, Wash. Located at 232 Washington Ave., the five-story, 121-room Cambria Hotel Bremerton Island will be part of a mixed-use waterfront development on Marina Square.  

Slated to open in 2019, the Cambria Hotel Bremerton Island will have a rooftop deck with 180-degree views of the Puget Sound, multifunction meeting space, a fitness center, a pool, a spa and underground parking. The hotel will also include contemporary onsite dining, serving a menu comprised of local specialties, liquor, wine and local craft beers, as well as grab-and-go gourmet salads and sandwiches.

The new upscale property is adjacent to the Bremerton Marina and the Kitsap Conference Center, making it a convenient location for guests attending nearby conferences and events. Bremerton is home to the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard, and is within driving distance of three championship golf courses, including Gold Mountain, Trophy Lake and McCormick Woods. The property is also a short ferry ride to downtown Seattle.
