Cambria Hotels, an upscale brand from Choice Hotels, opened its newest property, the Cambria Hotel New Haven University Area, this week.
The hotel, a six-story, 130-room property, is the first Cambria hotel in Connecticut and one of several additions the company has made throughout New England this year, including Cambria Hotel Boston Somerville, and the soon-to-open Cambria Hotel Portland Downtown Old Port and Cambria Hotel Manchester South Windsor.
The hotel is within walking distance of both New Haven’s downtown and Yale University.
Aside from the 130 guest rooms, the hotel also offers indoor and outdoor meeting space, onsite dining, and a fitness center.
“Our goal is to thoughtfully expand the Cambria footprint into markets that will deliver exceptional value to owners and guests, and the Cambria Hotel New Haven University Area represents the ideal addition to our growing East Coast portfolio,” said Janis Cannon, senior vice president, upscale brands, Choice Hotels.
“New Haven has long been pegged as the ‘Cultural Capital of Connecticut.’ In addition to its high concentration of top academic institutions, the city boasts the second largest bioscience cluster in New England and has consistently ranked as a top U.S. hub for technology startups. We could not be prouder to bring another outstanding upscale product to market and know that whatever the travel occasion is, the state’s first Cambria will connect modern travelers to the best Elm City has to offer.”
