Champion Builds Modules for Upscale Detroit Hotel

Developers of a $50 million upscale hotel broke ground Friday on a six-story upscale development that will bring 158 rooms, restaurant and retail to downtown Detroit.

Cambria Hotel at 600 W. Lafayette is set to open in 2020 and will incorporate the historic Albert Kahn-designed building with 150,000-square-feet of new construction, including modular hotel rooms. It’s the first modular hotel in the city, and its first hotel built from the ground up in 15 years.

Features of the hotel will include:
  • Spa-style bathrooms with Bluetooth mirrors.
  • Contemporary guestrooms with modern fixtures, ample lighting and plush bedding.
  • Onsite restaurant, Verona by Fabio Viviani.
  • Grand ballroom and banquet space.
  • State-of-the-art fitness center with spa amenities.
  • Rooftop patio bar
  • The development will also include 60,000-square-feet of office and retail space with tenants including Detroit Taco and Detroit Kid City.
Troy-based Champion Homes will construct the modular hotel rooms with complete interiors in a plant off-site and deliver for installation. The company recently built the modular apartment units for the development, The Corner, which opened this past summer on the former site of the Tiger Stadium.
