What: Cambria Hotel
Where: 6 West Broadway, South Boston
Built: 2019
Owner: City Point Capital 

Cambria Hotels’ first Massachusetts location is an art-infused new landmark at the gateway to South Boston. 

Designed by Boston-based RODE Architects, the 100,000-square-foot Cambria Hotel Boston, Downtown-South Boston includes 159 guest rooms, a 160-person event space and rooftop restaurant at the corner of West Broadway and Dorchester Avenue. 

RODE collaborated with London-based artist Simon Heijdens to bring his Lightweeds installation of light-projected tree forms to common spaces, and partnered with Yellow Goat Design to create a custom chandelier inspired by weeping willows in Boston’s Public Garden. 

The form of the building reflects Boston’s irregular street grid with folding planes and geometries that spotlight the surrounding urban landscape. 

They Said It:  

“The building taps into the architectural language of the Fort Point neighborhood, leading to simple but confident moves in familiar concrete, brick, and wood beam textures. By giving unique twists to established designs, the hotel fits in harmony, while also giving a new architectural flare to the neighborhood.”
