In a strategic move to solidify its standing in the upscale US hospitality segment, Choice Hotels International has continued its nationwide expansion with the recent opening of two Cambria Hotels. 

Now with a portfolio of more than 60 across the country, the company is making waves in the upscale sector.

New destinations

Recent additions to the Cambria Hotels US portfolio include properties in Austin, Texas, and Lake Placid, New York, contributing to the brand’s 14% growth in 2023.

The 212-room Cambria Hotel Austin Downtown, situated in the heart of the city, and the 185-room Lakeside Resort in Lake Placid, showcase the brand’s commitment to providing unique, upscale experiences.

Breaking ground on two properties in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, Choice Hotels anticipates the opening of the Cambria Hotel Fort Worth and the Cambria Hotel Northlake in Summer 2025, adding to the brand’s growing line-up of properties in the Lone Star State. 

Mark Shalala emphasises the brand’s success, with Cambria Hotels recognised as the top upscale brand in the JD Power 2023 North America Hotel Guest Satisfaction Index Study.
