LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Cambria Hotels, an upscale brand franchised by Choice Hotels International, made its official debut in the Bluegrass State with the grand opening of the Cambria Hotel Louisville Downtown-Whiskey Row.
To commemorate the new hotel and Cambria’s continued expansion into top markets, Choice Hotels along with long-time collaborator O’Reilly Hospitality Management welcomed community members and guests, including Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer, to a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Tuesday.
Guests were treated to a Louisville-inspired Mardi Gras reception, featuring the brand’s signature local craft beers and Kentucky-inspired menu, performances by a local band, and tours of the hotel, including equestrian themed décor and artwork, modern guestrooms and the striking rooftop terrace.
“Long celebrated for its bourbon and Derby tradition, Louisville is also home to several Fortune 500 companies, rich academia, and a thriving food scene, making it the ideal location to introduce our first Cambria hotel grand opening of 2022,” Cannon said. “From local brews at the bar to breathtaking city views from the rooftop, we’re confident that, whether a weekend getaway or a first business trip or group meeting in a while, the Cambria Hotel Louisville Downtown-Whiskey Row will satisfy travelers’ sense of wanderlust.”
Situated in the vibrant entertainment district of downtown Louisville at 120 South Floyd Street, the newest Cambria hotel positions guests just steps away from the storied Whiskey Row—once the epicenter of the Kentucky Bourbon industry and now home to a myriad of local restaurants and bars— and minutes from Waterfront Park, Louisville Slugger Field, and the KFC Yum Center arena. The Cambria Hotel Louisville Downtown also provides modern travelers with easy access to area attractions and corporate offices.
The six-story, 128-room Cambria Hotel Louisville Downtown-Whiskey Row also features upscale amenities and approachable indulgences that appeal to modern travelers. It features locally inspired design and décor, reflecting Louisville’s unique horse-racing culture, contemporary rooms, spa-style bathrooms, meeting space, fitness center, The Jackdaw restaurant and the Magnum Moon Hayloft Bar and Grill.
The hotel was developed by Cardinal Hotel Partners, an affiliate of O’Reilly Hospitality Management.
There are currently nearly 60 Cambria hotels open across the U.S. in popular cities such as Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, New Orleans and Phoenix, with over 70 hotels in the pipeline.
