154-Room Cambria Hotel Coming to SW D.C. in 2020

Choice Hotels Taps Koucar Mgmt. to Develop Nine-Story Hotel at 69 Q St.
March 2, 2018
A second Cambria hotel is coming to the District after Choice Hotels International, Inc. (NYSE: CHH) confirmed plans for a new 154-room, nine-story hotel near Yards Park.

Slated for a 2020 opening, the new Cambria hotel will offer 2,500 square feet of multi-function meeting space, a rooftop bar, on-site dining and a fitness center, all in a distinct, upscale lodging setting, according to a release issued by the company.

Choice has engaged Michigan-based Koucar Management to develop the hotel, which will go vertical at 69 Q St. SW near Nationals Park, Bardo Brewery and Audi Field - the new home of the MLS' D.C. United set to open this July - as well as the Yards Park mixed-use development. The location will also put prospective residents within a five-minute walk of the Navy Yard Metro Station.

"The development of the Cambria Hotel Southwest D.C. showcases our focus on expanding the Cambria brand to key urban markets throughout the country. Washington, D.C. is celebrated for its growing population, government and corporate activity, and tourism, making it the ideal home for multiple Cambria properties," said Mark Shalala, vice president, development, upscale brands at Choice Hotels. "We look forward to collaborating with Koucar Management on this project and bringing another tremendous upscale hotel to the backyard of Choice's headquarters."

Choice Hotels International, headquartered out of nearby Rockville, MD, franchises more than 6,800 hotels worldwide including such recognized brands as Comfort Inn, Quality Inn, EconoLodge, Sleep Inn and Ascend. The company delivered its first Cambria hotel, the Cambria Hotel Washington, D.C. Convention Center at 899 O St. NW in the city's East End, in 2014.

Construction on the new Cambria is slated to commence in 2019. BBGM out of New York City is the architect for the project.
