Cambria Hotel and Suites | 8-Story 155-Room Hotel [Approved]

Recommended Posts


Decent height considering the size of the lot. A big improvement over what's currently there. To put some perspective on the height of this, the building next to it (west) is six stories tall.

St. George's is the catalyst in that area working with the homeless. My guess is that the hotel will need to work with the church to determine how to proceed. OBJ keeps recycling this project even though downtown hotel occupancy grows remarkably slowly. I'm still unsure this moves forward anytime soon, especially now that Tremont is underway.

Given how glacially the hotel market downtown goes, I suspect only one of the three between Cambria, AC by Marriott and the TraveLodge redo happens. 

I could easily be wrong but based on what's happened in the past, that's my best guess.

To answer your question directly, it's still crickets based on the site.

I'd rather see a boutique-style apartment/condo project go there instead of a hotel anyway. It just sucks the main entrance to Lake Eola from downtown still goes unfinished...

So with  that rationale let’s not hold our breaths for the hotel proposal for Magnolia & Anderson near DPAC...

Sadly I agree with you.  And I didn’t even bring up the Magic hotel proposal...

You know, maybe the complexion of downtown ala potential hotel patrons will change when UCF starts operating en force...

It's certainly possible although it seems like the programs coming downtown will attract more local sorts than some of the hardcore STEM majors staying on Alafaya.

I also wonder if SunTrust downsizing is also likely to decrease the number of business travelers.

Here's hoping someone else coming downtown will take up the slack so occupancy rates at least remain steady.
