New hotel planned for Roosevelt Row
A seven-story Cambria hotel is going up in downtown Phoenix’s Roosevelt Row.
Construction just started on the 127room hotel scheduled to open next year on the northwest corner of Portland and Third streets, near Margaret T. Hance Park.
Cambria is part of the Choice Hotel chain.
Choice Hotel Senior Vice President Janis Cannon said the company’s hotels are designed to reflect the neighborhoods they go up in, and guests can expect “the spirit” of Roosevelt Row in the new hotel.
The Cambria hotel will have a rooftop pool and bar along with a restaurant and meeting space.
True North Studio LLC is developing the hotel with Choice, which paid $1 million for the site in May, according to public real estate records.
“The Roosevelt Row Arts District, one of the top arts districts in the nation, is a true jewel of Phoenix,” said Jonathon Vento, principal developer with True North.
In 2016, the boutique hotel FOUND:RE opened up at Central Avenue and Portland in Roosevelt Row. It replaced an older, closed hotel.
