Cambria Hotels, an upscale brand by Choice Hotels International, Inc. known for its little luxuries that make a big difference and locally inspired design, commemorated the opening of its third location in the Phoenix metro area, the Cambria Hotel Downtown Phoenix Convention Center, with an exclusive ribbon-cutting ceremony and “Paint with a Brew” event.
Arizona Coyotes team captain Oliver Ekman-Larsson joined representatives from Cambria Hotels for the occasion, and accepted a $10,000 donation to Child Crisis Arizona, a nonprofit dedicated to providing support services to vulnerable children and families. Following the ribbon-cutting, Ekman-Larsson and other attendees were guided to the hotel’s expansive rooftop space to create their own mural-themed painting – a nod to the murals of the surrounding Roosevelt Row Arts District and the hotel’s own collection of local artwork – while enjoying unobstructed views of the Phoenix skyline and a selection of craft beers from Cambria’s signature local craft beer program.
“As one of the nation’s largest and fastest growing cities, Phoenix is the ideal location to welcome multiple Cambria hotels that reflect the unique essence of their surrounding neighborhoods,” said Janis Cannon, senior vice president, upscale brands, Choice Hotels. “In addition to serving as the home to our technology headquarters, this area is bustling with business and leisure travelers drawn to downtown Phoenix’s creative and entrepreneurial spirit. We’re pleased that they too can now enjoy authentic upscale service and design-forward amenities in the heart of the Phoenix Arts District, and we are thrilled that Oliver Ekman-Larsson was able to join us in hailing this new addition to the community.”
