Cambria Hotels made a splash recently when they opened their first Philadelphia location in the heart of Center City. The Cambria Hotel Philadelphia Downtown – Center City, as it is officially named, will feature 223 guest rooms, says the Hotel Management website. The building is 15 stories and is topped with a roof-level indoor/outdoor bar with over 3,000 square feet of lounge space.
The new Cambria Hotel is situated in the posh Avenue of the Arts neighborhood at 219 S. Broad Street, in the theater district. It is within walking distance to the Kimmel Center, Academy of the Arts, Rittenhouse Square Park, Reading Terminal Market, City Hall, and the Pennsylvania Convention Center, as well as world-class dining and shopping. As for dining, guests need not go far – the Cambria Hotel will host Del Frisco’s Grille on the ground floor, with handcrafted food and drink options, as well as local brews on tap. It is easily accessible by commuters and travelers alike, with the Comcast and Aramark headquarters nearby, as well as several other major corporations.
“The City of Brotherly Love is steeped in rich culture and history with an enviable food and craft beer scene. The Cambria Hotel Philadelphia Downtown – Center City allows modern travelers to immerse themselves in the essence of the city. As a newly constructed building, the property is the newest hotel on Broad Street and offers upscale amenities, thoughtfully inspired local design, and will have the only rooftop bar and restaurant on the street,” Janis Cannon, SVP, upscale brands at Choice Hotels, said in a statement to Hotel Management’s website.
The hotel comes equipped with several top-of-the-line features, like Bluetooth-enabled mirrors in the bathrooms (don’t ask me what that means), a fully-equipped fitness center, 2,500 square feet of multifunction meeting space and business center, gorgeous art by Philadelphia-based artist and illustrator Hawk Krall, and contemporary-styled living spaces with cozy bedding.
