CHOICE HOTELS INTERNATIONAL and Cloud Nine Hospitality are developing a new Cambria hotel in Austin, Texas. The four-story, 134-room Cambria Hotel Austin Airport near Austin Bergstrom International Airport is expected to open in 2019.
Could Nine has managed and operated hotels other Choice brands such as Quality Inn, Comfort Inn and Comfort Suites. “Austin is a perfect fit for the Cambria brand,” said Cloud Nine’s Vick Patel. “Austin’s thriving tech scene and diverse offerings brings in a high number of visitors to the area.”
The new hotel on E. Ben White Boulevard and E. Riverside Drive will join three other Choice properties already open in Plano, Southlake and McAllen, said Mark Shalala, Choice’s vice president for development of upscale brands. The company also has properties under construction in Dallas and Richardson, and projects under development in Waco, downtown Houston, the Houston airport, downtown San Antonio, Shenandoah/The Woodlands and Galveston.
The company is targeting state capital and large university markets, Shalala said. “We like the stability, higher RevPAR, and consistent room night demand these markets typically deliver,” he said.
The Cambria Hotel Austin Airport includes meeting space, an outdoor pool and spa, and a fitness center. It also will feature onsite dining including local specialties and craft beers.
