ROCKVILLE, MD—Cambria Hotel Plano-Frisco has been awarded LEED Silver certification, marking the brand’s first property to receive LEED certification.
Achieving LEED certification requires multiple stringent criteria. The Cambria Hotel Plano-Frisco was recognized for taking multiple energy saving measures, which include electric automobile recharge stations, solar power, water efficient landscaping, water-use reduction, renewable energy, low-emitting building materials and a green housekeeping plan.
“Cambria Hotels are designed to meet the needs of today’s modern traveler. So we are constantly maintaining a keen awareness of what matters to guests today, like sustainability,” said Janis Cannon, SVP of upscale brands at Choice Hotels. “We plan to continue to roll out environmentally friendly properties nationwide and thank our Plano property and O’Reilly Hospitality Management for setting the bar.”
The four-story, 129-room Cambria Hotel Plano-Legacy is located at 7500 Parkwood Blvd. and opened in March 2015. Like all Cambria brand hotels, the Plano property has contemporary on-site dining, serving a menu comprised of local specialties, liquor, wine and local craft beers, as well as grab-and-go meals, and a barista bar.
