Cambria Hotels, an upscale brand franchised by Choice Hotels International, has expanded opened a new property in Austin, Texas, US.

The property is less than two miles from Austin Bergstrom International Airport and just minutes from downtown and the newly opened Tesla Gigafactory.

Cambria Hotel Austin Airport was developed by W2 SF Airport Hospitality Business LP, a W2 Real Estate Partners entity.

Located at 7800 E. Ben White Boulevard, the hotel has 127 rooms and other amenities including multi-purpose indoor and outdoor spaces, including an outdoor pool and spa-style bathrooms with Bluetooth mirrors.

It boasts onsite dining within the Backstage Bar & Grill, serving freshly made food, local craft beer, wine and craft cocktails, as well as to-go options.

The hotel features multi-function meeting and event spaces and advanced fitness centre.

Choice Hotels upscale brands senior vice-president Janis Cannon said: “Ideal for travellers flying in to explore this vibrant city or if in town for work, the Cambria Hotel Austin Airport provides the convenience of everything Austin has to offer — in addition to all the little luxuries and upscale amenities that elevate the guest experience.

“With Texas being one of the fastest-growing states in the country, it’s only fitting that we debut our first hotel in Central Texas and the sixth hotel overall in the Lone Star State, following openings in Houston, McAllen, Plano, Richardson and Southlake.” 

The property marks the first of two hotels to open in Austin with the second hotel, Cambria Hotel Austin Downtown Rainey Street, slated to open in summer next year.

Cambria has nearly 60 hotels opened across major US cities with over 70 hotels in the pipeline. Recently, the brand opened Cambria Hotel Calabasas, its fifth property in California, US.
