Miami is one step closer to getting a brand new Cambria Suites hotel. SunflowerHospitality, Delant Construction and Choice Hotels International celebrated the official groundbreaking of the new Miami hotel on March 28 during an on-site ceremony attended by business, community and government leaders.

Located at 6700 7th St., the 122-suite hotel will be situated along Highway 836 near the Miami International Airport. The $16 million, 85,500-square-foot, seven-story building is expected to be completed in the summer of 2013.

The hotel will have 1,800 square feet of conference room space as well as an outdoor pool and terrace, while its guestrooms will feature stunning views of nearby Lake Mahar. Two hundred construction jobs are expected to be created during the development stage. In addition, the hotel will employ approximately 60 staff members on an ongoing basis and is expected to generate more than $50,000 in tax revenue per year to the Miami-Dade metro area.

Like all Cambria Suites hotels, the Miami property will feature:

  • Reflect, a casual dining and gathering area serving dinner, liquor, wine, beer, freshly prepared grab-and-go gourmet salads and sandwiches, a barista bar featuring Wolfgang Puck® coffee and a hot breakfast buffet;
  • Refresh, a state-of-the-art fitness center with an elegant pool and spa area; and
  • Refill, a 24-7 convenience store that offers energy drinks, snacks and sundries.

The new Miami property marks the continued expansion of the Cambria Suites brand into major urban markets following the recent announcement of two new development deals in New York City and one in Washington, D.C. Additionally, Choice Hotels has acquired land parcels in five other major markets for potential future development.
