You’ll soon have another venue option when you’re looking to get away for a business retreat in Washington. Choice Hotels International, Inc. has signed an agreement with Sound West Group to develop a Cambria hotel in Bremerton, Washington. The five-story, 121-room hotel will be part of a mixed-use waterfront development on Marina Square, adjacent to the Bremerton Marina and the Kitsap Conference Center.

Scheduled to open in 2019, the Cambria Hotel Bremerton Island will feature a rooftop deck with 180-degree views of the Puget Sound, multi-function meeting space, a state-of-the-art fitness center, a pool and spa, and underground parking. The hotel will also include on-site dining.

Bremerton is located on the Kitsap Peninsula, a short, one-hour ferry ride from Seattle. If you need a little more room than the Cambria will provide, the Kitsap Conference Center has 17,000 square feet of meeting space and can host up to 700 guests. For more information on the Cambria hotel project, you can check out the video here.
