8/2018 Construction Underway for Stylish New Hotel Designed for the Modern Traveler in Downtown Bloomington

With the economic expansion Bloomington, Minnesota has experienced in recent years, one might refer to the area as “Boomington.” That growth trend continues as the city gets set to welcome a new hotel property that promises to treat travelers to a truly distinct travel-stay experience.

Consolidated Construction Co. Inc., a full-service design/build firm based in Appleton, Wisconsin has begun construction on the new Cambria® Hotel Bloomington Mall of America at 8001 28th Avenue South in Bloomington. This five-story property will feature the Cambria Hotels brand’s new prototype exterior and interior design platform encompassing 170 rooms and more than 104,000 sq. ft. of space. The property will feature several upscale amenities, including:

  • Contemporary, sophisticated guest rooms with plush bedding
  • Spa-style bathrooms
  • Locally inspired designs
  • Menus featuring local craft beer, wine, specialty cocktails, and bites
  • State-of-the-art fitness centers
  • Multi-functional meeting space and business centers

Bloomington, the fifth-largest city in Minnesota, is situated on the north bank of the Minnesota River, just 10 minutes south of metropolitan Minneapolis-St. Paul. It is home to a number of destination sites including Nickelodeon Universe, Sea Life Minnesota Aquarium, Lego Imagination Center, and the wildly popular Mall of America, which welcomes more than 40 million shoppers annually.

“Bloomington is growing and there is demand for modern, stylish hotel accommodations.” said Gene Schleusner, Consolidated Construction’s Senior Vice President of Business Development. “The Minneapolis-St. Paul area has long been known as a hub of art, design and fashion, and Bloomington definitely adds to that atmosphere. As a Choice Hotels Preferred Vendor, we’re proud to play a leading role in the effort to refresh and enhance the Cambria brand. This property will be a beautiful and fitting addition to the Bloomington area.”

The Cambria brand is part of the Choice Hotels International, Inc. (NYSE: CHH) portfolio. Choice is one of the world’s largest lodging franchisors with more than 6,800 hotels franchised in 40-plus countries and territories. Ceres Enterprises, LLC, is the project developer.
