Cambria Hotel Austin Uptown Near the Domain also boasts onsite dining venues including Uptown Lounge and Kitchen & Cocktails, which caters foods, local craft beer, wine and specialty cocktails.

The property is close to major local destinations, including the Domain Shopping Mall, Rock Rose Entertainment District, Circuit of the Americas, and the University of Texas at Austin.

It also offers convenient access to Google, Facebook, Apple, Amazon, and Dell’s regional offices.

Choice Hotels upscale brands senior vice-president Janis Cannon said: “Austin continually ranks as one of the nation’s fastest growing cities, and for good reason. From ‘Silicon Hills’ to a world-class arts and music scene, there’s no shortage of opportunity for modern travellers and professionals – or the Cambria brand – in the Texas capital.

“As Austin’s skyline continues to evolve, we could not be prouder to make our mark on the city in Austin’s second downtown with another fantastic property, uniquely designed to connect business and leisure travellers alike to the creative hallmarks and one-of-a-kind experiences the Lone Star state capital is celebrated for.”

Cambria Hotel Austin Uptown Near the Domain, which is developed by MoPac Hotel Development, represents the second of three Cambria hotels planned to open in Austin.

The first property, Cambria Hotel Austin Airport, opened last year. The company will open Cambria Hotel Austin Downtown, the third hotel later this year.
