Cambria Suites hotel opens at Pittsburgh hockey arena

PITTSBURGH, PENNSYLVANIA Horizon Properties Group LLC and Choice Hotels International Inc. announce the opening of a 142-key Cambria Suites hotel adjacent to Pittsburgh’s Consol Energy Center, the home of the Pittsburgh Penguins hockey team.

“This Cambria Suites arena hotel not only serves Pittsburgh Penguins fans, but helps revitalize the entire Uptown section of Pittsburgh,” says Rodney Piatt, CEO of Horizon Properties Group and developer of the property. “Now, business and leisure travelers and sports fans alike will have a convenient, modern and comfortable option in the heart of Pittsburgh.”

The property features a 1,800-sq.-ft., three-bedroom and three-and-a-half-bathroom presidential suite with skyline views of downtown Pittsburgh—a first for the brand.  A seventh-floor concierge lounge offers a wet bar, flat-screen LCD televisions and lounge space for guests to use and enjoy. The hotel also has an exclusive guest-dedicated garage with access to the hockey arena.

“We are excited that Cambria Suites has opened its doors,” says Penguins President David Morehouse. “This hotel means a lot to the Pittsburgh Penguins organization, our Consol Energy Center project and this section of the downtown area.”

Like all Cambria Suites properties, the Pittsburgh property features Reflect, a dining and gathering area serving a dinner menu, liquor, wine, beer, freshly prepared grab-and-go gourmet salads and sandwiches, a barista bar featuring Wolfgang Puck coffee, Cheesecake Factory desserts and a hot breakfast buffet; Refresh, a state-of-the-art fitness center with an elegant pool and hot tub/spa area; and Refill, a 24-7 convenience store that offers energy drinks, snacks and sundries.

“Opening our 23rd Cambria Suites property with such a respected local business and world-class sports team as our partners is thrilling,” says Choice CEO Steve Joyce. “Not only does Cambria Suites Pittsburgh feature new and unique offerings, it is our first city property, and we are excited to expand the brand into more urban areas in the future.”

The hotel is managed by Horizon Hospitality LLC, which recently opened the first Cambria Suites hotel in Pennsylvania, in Washington County.
