Noting that leisure travel is returning faster than business travel, Cambria Hotels, an upscale brand franchised by Choice Hotels International Inc., is continuing to expand with openings at top destinations on both the East and West coasts. The newest additions are the eight-story, 137-key Cambria Hotel Ocean City – Bayport in Ocean City, Md., and the four-story, 135-key Cambria Hotel Sonoma Wine Country in Rohnert Park, Calif.

Since January, Cambia Hotels has now opened six new properties in major markets. In July, the 126-key Cambria Hotel Greenville, in Greenville, S.C., opened. A month earlier, the 125-key Cambria Hotel St. Petersburg – Madeira Beach Marina opened in Madeira Beach, Fla. In December 2019, Choice and Reddy Hotel broke ground on another Florida property, a 106-key hotel in Orlando, Fla., that is slated for completion by early 2021. Designed for the modern traveler, the Cambria Hotels brand has more than 130 properties open or in the pipeline in the U.S., including in Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, New Orleans, Phoenix and Washington, D.C. More than 50 are currently operating across the U.S.

Janis Cannon, senior vice president, upscale brands, Choice Hotels, said in a prepared statement both new hotels represent the brand’s substantial growth across the country. She noted that they are in easily accessible, drive-to locations as more travelers are taking road trips during the COVID-19 crisis rather than flying.
