    Horizon Properties Group, LLC, the Pittsburgh Penguins, Horizon Hospitality, LLC and Choice Hotels International, Inc. has recently celebrated the “topping off” milestone of the new Cambria Suites Pittsburgh hotel. The 142-suite hotel is located on Centre Avenue adjacent to the new Consol Energy Center and is expected to open in December of this year. “Now that we’re nearing completion, we can feel the rising excitement and interest in the area,” said Rodney Piatt, CEO of Horizon Properties Group. “This Cambria Suites hotel has become a catalyst for revitalizing the Uptown section of Pittsburgh.”

    The Cambria Suites hotel brings the latest in hotel innovation to the Pittsburgh area. Each room is larger than most standard hotel rooms, with separate work and living areas with ergonomic chairs, movable desks, luxury linens, and Bath & Body Works(R) products.

A 7th floor concierge lounge will offer a wet bar, flat screen LCD televisions and lounge space for guests to use and enjoy. The hotel will also have an exclusive 143 space onsite parking garage with access to the Consol Energy Center for event patrons staying at the property.

    Like all Cambria Suites hotels, the Pittsburgh property will feature: Reflect, a contemporary bistro-style restaurant that features a full barista coffee bar and serves breakfast and dinner; Refresh, a state-of-the-art fitness center with an indoor pool and spa; and Refill, a 24-hour sundry shop that stocks freshly prepared “grab ‘n’ go” gourmet salads and sandwiches, as well as typical convenience items and healthy and organic foods.
