Cambria Hotels a brand franchised by Choice Hotels International, Inc. (NYSE: CHH)–continues its expansion across the Twin Cities with the opening of the Cambria Hotel Minneapolis Downtown. The new six-story, 121-room hotel joins the nearby Cambria Hotel Minneapolis Maple Grove and Cambria Hotel Bloomington Mall of America Minneapolis Airport.

Located at 1020 Hawthorne Avenue, the Cambria Hotel Minneapolis Downtown positions guests in the heart of the city’s Gateway District–Minneapolis’ original downtown–minutes away from top area restaurants, breweries, and riverfront attractions. The hotel is also a short drive to Target Center, U.S. Bank Stadium, the Minneapolis Convention Center, Gutherie Theater, and the University of Minnesota campus. During their stay, guests can also enjoy easy access to the offices of top area employers, including Ameriprise Financial, Ecolab, General Mills, and Target.

It’s easy to see why so many Fortune 500 companies are proud to call the Twin Cities home, and why it’s an ideal location to expand Cambria’s upscale offerings to even more travelers in the region,” said Janis Cannon, senior vice president, upscale brands, Choice Hotels. “Whether they’re in town for a weekend getaway or a week-long business trip, we know the Cambria Hotel Minneapolis Downtown, like the rest of our Minneapolis portfolio, will surprise and delight visitors with tailored amenities and curated design in an unbeatable location to help make the most of their time in the City of Lakes.”
