Nadel Architecture + Planning Announces Completion of Cambria Hotel Calabasas

Updated: Jun 16, 2023

Nadel Architecture + Planning, one of Los Angeles’ premier architecture and design firms, has announced the completion and opening of Cambria Hotel Calabasas, part of Choice Hotels International, a three-story, 125-room hotel located against the backdrop of the scenic Santa Monica Mountains in the Los Angeles County city of Calabasas, California. The project was developed by Weintraub Real Estate Group.

Cambria Hotel Calabasas serves a growing demand from business and leisure travelers for relative affordability and modern, stylish accommodations that are elevated through exceptional design, select amenities, and luxury touches, according to Patrick Winters, President and Principal of Nadel Architecture + Planning, which provided complete architectural services for the project.

“Our approach to this project was driven by the unique nature of the site combined with emerging consumer demands,” says Winters. “Cambria Hotel Calabasas is designed to take advantage of the picturesque Santa Monica Mountains and embrace beachy, Californian design elements in the interior to help guests feel connected to the attractions and scenery of the surrounding community.”

Winters notes that the hotel is uniquely U-shaped, with a courtyard and pool located in the middle of the property enclosed by mountains. Features including spacious, modern suites complete with spa-inspired bathrooms, a heated outdoor pool, fitness center and a chef-driven, full-service restaurant and bar, will attract both leisure and business travelers alike.

“Cambria Hotel Calabasas incorporates Spanish and Mediterranean architectural styles that create an aesthetically pleasing look and feel that distinguish it from surrounding properties,” Winters continues. “The result is a visually striking structure that maximizes guest’s ability to enjoy the surrounding area and its attractions at a price point that is enticing for budget-friendly travelers. The hotel is also situated on top of a rise, making it easily seen by those passing by, and giving it the upscale look of being silhouetted against an expansive mountainside.”

The hotel is well positioned to attract travelers seeking a Malibu vacation, as the property is located a short, scenic drive from the city’s famous beaches and waterfront dining. The location also offers ample opportunities for outdoor recreation in the immediate vicinity, with several biking and hiking trails less than 2 miles away.

“Nadel’s deep expertise in the greater Los Angeles market informed the design and enabled us to deliver a visually appealing hotel that effectively utilizes the space, despite the challenges presented in developing a structure against mountains with tight space constraints,” explains Winters, who notes that much of the project was completed through the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, requiring additional discipline and flexibility. “Conceptualizing the design of unique and visually distinctive projects like the Cambria speaks to our ability to deliver creative solutions that are both practical and aesthetically appealing.”

Cambria Hotel Calabasas is located at 26400 Rondell Street in Calabasas, California.
