The Cambria Hotel opened recently, bringing 132 more rooms to Downtown Milwaukee.

First look: New Cambria Hotel Downtown

Part of an ongoing boom in new hotels in Milwaukee, the Cambria – at 503 N. Plankinton Ave., on the corner of Clybourn Avenue – is one of a few that occupy new, purpose-built homes in the heart of Downtown.

The hotel, owned by the Chicago-based Murphy Development Group (MDG) and managed by Concord Hospitality, opened in August. Its restaurant, 414 Bar + Kitchen, opened earlier this month.

The four-story hotel – the interior of which was designed by Stan Ramaker of the Fond du Lac-based M+A Design – has 132 rooms, including 77 king rooms, 50 double queens and five suites.

In addition to 1,500 square feet of meeting space and a lobby with a fireplace, the hotel also has a swimming pool, which is a rarity in Downtown hotels (though the newly opened Drury Plaza also has one), a fitness center and a patio.
