Murphy Development Group (MDG) announced today that the firm closed on a deal to develop a Cambria Hotels & Suites in downtown Milwaukee, marking the beginning of MDG’s newest hotel project. The hotel will be a 132-key, four-story building featuring 77 King units, 51 Double Queen units, and four suites. M+A Design’s Stan Ramaker and Consolidated Construction Company are the architect and general contractor on the project, respectively.

The total cost of the project is $22 million, and the property will include a first-floor pool and fitness center, hotel bar and meeting room, and an interior courtyard. The Cambria hotel is one of many being built across the downtown Milwaukee area.

“We’re excited to contribute to Milwaukee’s rapid growth with the addition of the Cambria hotel. This development also represents Choice Hotels’ expansion and advancement of the Cambria Hotels & Suites brand, as this is the first of its kind in the Milwaukee area, and Choice Hotels’ only hotel in downtown Milwaukee,” said MDG’s John T.
