Cambria Hotels expands with second Boston property

Cambria Hotels, the upscale brand franchised by Choice Hotels International, continues its coast-to-coast expansion with the opening of the Cambria Hotel Boston Somerville. The new 4-story, 163-room hotel underscores the brand’s growth across New England, joining the Cambria Hotel Boston, Downtown-South Boston as well as the soon-to-open Cambria Hotel Portland Downtown Old Port, Cambria Hotel Manchester South Windsor and Cambria Hotel New Haven, which are expected to debut this year.

Located at 515 Somerville Avenue, the newest Cambria is ideally situated just two miles from Boston’s city center and places guests in the heart of downtown Somerville – one of New England’s most sought-after communities and among the most culturally diverse cities in the nation. In addition to providing seamless access to the Cambridge rail line and nearby restaurants and historical sites, such as Prospect Hill Park and Bow Market, the Cambria Hotel Boston Somerville is closely located to several corporate headquarters and area employers, including Greentown Labs, ABM Industries, Cambridge Health Alliance, Fidelity Investments and Liberty Mutual Insurance. Modern travelers also have easy access to the nation’s top academic institutions, such as Harvard University, Tufts University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, which are all within walking distance from the property.

“Boston has long been lauded for its thriving academic community and innovation-driven culture, which makes it the ideal location to introduce another Cambria hotel as we look to expand our upscale offerings in popular markets across the region,” said Janis Cannon, senior vice president, upscale brands, Choice Hotels. “We know modern travelers want enriching experiences when they visit, and the Cambria Hotel Boston Sommerville offers this and more, immersing guests in local culture at the vibrant city center through sophisticated, urban loft design while delivering top-notch amenities to help them stay at their best.”
