Latest property debut marks upscale brand's third location in the Twin Cities

ROCKVILLE, Md., Nov. 22, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Cambria Hotels--an upscale 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 to further the brand's quest to bring modern, upscale accommodations to travelers' favorite urban destinations.

Ideally 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.

During their stay, guests can also enjoy easy access to the offices of top area employers, including Ameriprise Financial, Ecolab, General Mills, and Target.

"The Minneapolis-St. Paul area has it all: a flourishing corporate community, a diverse workforce, and a world-class arts and cultural scene. 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.
