The 23-floor, 87-year-old landmark is known for its distinctive art deco design, a style retained and enhanced throughout the new hotel. Located within the heart of downtown’s renowned Theater Row district and adjacent to the storied Majestic Theater, the property once housed its own movie theatre.
Speaking at the April 05 Roaring Twenties-themed launch of the hotel, Janis Cannon, senior vice president, upscale brands, Choice Hotels International, commented, “Cambria Hotels properties all reflect the heart, soul and culture of their respective communities. But they share common attributes that guests can always count on, including locally inspired design, food and beverage, and excellent service.”
The opening ceremony also included an auction to benefit the Booker T. Washington High School of Performing and Visual Arts.
