New, 170-Room Cambria Hotel Coming To Potomac Yard

A Cambria prototype hotel

Choice Hotels recently launched an aggressive expansion strategy for its upscale Cambria Hotels brand, and now it is bringing the flag to Alexandria

The Rockville-based hotel company is buying a parcel of land in Potomac Yard to develop a 170-room hotel, the Washington Business Journal reports

The hotel will sit at the corner of U.S. Route 1 and East Glebe Road, near the site of the planned Potomac Yard Metro station. That station, expected to open in 2021, is the impetus for a major pipeline of development spearheaded by JBG Smith

This will be the first Cambria in Northern Virginia. D.C. has one Cambria Hotel & Suites just north of the convention center, and suburban Maryland has two, in Rockville and College Park. Choice has looked at doing an adaptive reuse of an office or industrial-style retail building into a Cambria hotel in the D.C. area, just as it did with a 22-story office tower in Chicago.
