Choice Opens New Orleans Hotel
- Oct 16, 2017
Choice Hotels partnered with Fillmore Capital Partners and Fillmore Hospitality to open a 162-key property in New Orleans’ Warehouse District. It will operate under Choice’s upscale Cambria brand, which currently has 32 properties open across the U.S. The hospitality company owns 16 other hotels within the city of New Orleans, under its various other brands, such as Sleep Inn & Suites, Ascend, Comfort Inn and EconoLodge.
“This is another important milestone for the Cambria Hotels brand as we continue to open in markets with a balance of cultural and corporate offerings demanded and valued by today’s modern traveler. We’re thrilled to once again have worked with Fillmore Hospitality to bring this great property to market. It follows recent Cambria and Fillmore Capital Partners openings in Los Angeles – LAX, Chicago Magnificent Mile, and Southlake – DFW,” said Janis Cannon, senior vice president of upscale brands at Choice Hotels, in a prepared statement.
Cultural attractions, upscale treatment
The newly constructed property is situated at 632 Tchoupitoulas St., within the city’s central business district and only a few blocks away from the French Quarter. Many attractions are located within easy reach, including Café Du Monde, the Mercedes-Benz Superdrome, Ernest Morial Convention Center, The National WWII Museum, and Harrah’s Casino.
“Choice Hotels has been a tremendous collaborator every step of the way, providing all of the resources to help us open the doors to now four Cambria properties. New Orleans is a city of rich history and year-after-year one of the most popular U.S. cities for leisure and business,” said Ron Silva, president & chief executive officer at Fillmore Capital Partners, in prepared remarks.
The Cambria Hotel New Orleans Warehouse District features contemporary on-site dining with local specialties, cocktails and local craft beers. Guests have access to two meeting rooms, of 600 square feet each, available in different configurations. Other amenities include a fitness center, health club with spa, and a lounge with bar. Several light rail stations are located close to the property, offering easy access to other parts of the city.
