ROCKVILLE, Md., May 2, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Choice Hotels International, Inc. (NYSE: CHH), one of the world’s largest hotel companies, in partnership with Fillmore Capital Partners and Fillmore Hospitality, announced today the opening of the Cambria Hotel in Los Angeles – LAX, the brand’s first property in California.
Located at 199 North Continental Blvd, the 152-room upscale property is minutes from Los Angeles International Airport, as well as nearby to the area’s top businesses like DirecTV, Mattel Inc., Northrop Grumman, Raytheon, and several aerospace companies including The Aerospace Corporation. The hotel is a short distance from Manhattan Beach, several malls and also less than 20 miles from downtown LA’s world-class tourist attractions. The property features a modern design that takes its cues from the fashion-forward city that surrounds it, including Mid-century modern accents and exclusive vibrant local artwork reminiscent of 1950s Los Angeles.
The Cambria Hotel Los Angeles – LAX is the first of several projects in the LA area. The upscale hotel brand has plans to open four additional hotels, including LA Live in the downtown area, LA Spring Street, Anaheim and Glendale.
“This is an important milestone for Cambria as our brand expands to California, as the LAX hotel is the first of several exceptional hotels,” said Janis Cannon, senior vice president, upscale brands at Choice Hotels. “This property offers unique features specific to LA, including a sophisticated and elegant design that mirrors the city’s trendy style. The Cambria brand is perfectly suited for the LA market as more and more travelers visit the area, and we look forward to providing driven, modern travelers with an experience that makes them feel like they are treating themselves when they travel.”
The hotel features a spacious lobby with geometric pendant lighting and an open space that includes an eclectic mix of comfortable seating options for guests to relax with Lavazza premium coffee, or to catch up on work at an inviting communal table.
Like all Cambria Hotels, the property features contemporary onsite dining, serving a menu comprised of local specialties, liquor, wine, and local craft beers, as well as freshly prepared grab-and-go gourmet salads and sandwiches, and a barista bar. The hotel also includes meeting space and a high-design fitness center that offers state-of-the-art equipment, including a pool, cardio, and strength-training equipment. In addition, the hotel features a relaxing outdoor space with cabanas.
Cambria again partnered with Fillmore Hospitality, a management company that provides a full spectrum of development, investment and property management services to owners of hotels and resorts throughout North America. Recently, Cambria and Fillmore teamed up to open properties in Southlake (Dallas Fort Worth) and Chicago Magnificent Mile, and are poised to help the brand expand to New Orleans and Nashville.
“Los Angeles is one of the most iconic cities in the United States and we’re thrilled to help bring the Cambria brand to the area for the first time,” said Ron Silva, Fillmore Capital Partners president and CEO. “The opening of the LAX property is a testament to the strength of our continued partnership with Cambria, and we look forward to opening more Cambria Hotels in New Orleans and Nashville to offer people an upscale and affordable hotel experience.”
