Originally planned to be built as a LaQuinta Inn in early 2019, the planned hotel made a switch to the Cambria Hotel branding in Aug. 2019. But perhaps due to Covid and other factors no actual construction happened at that time for the hotel, which is to be located at 4611 S. Dowdy Rd nearby Geiger Blvd.
Flash forward to 2022, and we can see that the plan appears to have been delayed but not completely cancelled as construction is now happening on the site. In fact, when we investigated last week, a small crew was present, and a building foundation has already been constructed with early plumbing rising out of the ground. The site is only few miles south of Spokane International Airport, the GEG1 Amazon facility and is an easy drive to Downtown Spokane.
Permits for Spokane's new Cambria Hotel we're re-issued in March of this year with MedVed Global Northwest,LLC of Moses Lake listed as the general contractor. The permits we're submitted by Mohinder Brar, who appears to be related with the Best Western franchise in Moses Lake, but when we reached out for information on opening dates, etc. we unfortunately received no comment.
What we do know about the new hotel is that will be a 4-story building with 85 rooms. The original press releases for the hotel when it was first proposed indicate that the hotel will include a fitness center, meeting space and locally inspired design. The architect on file with the building permits is Kaul Design Associates, LLC of Federal Way. We hope to have more exact details at some point in the future.
Cambria Hotels are a growing brand established by the parent company Choice Hotels. The company's website mentions the Cambria brand under the phrase " Little luxuries, Big Difference ", tailored to business travelers and the wants of leisure guests.
