US-based Choice Hotels International has entered into an agreement with S3D Partner to develop its first Cambria hotel in Burbank, California.

The new six-story, 90-room Cambria Hotel Burbank, which is expected to be opened in 2019, will be located near 'Media Capital of the World', which accommodates several entertainment companies.

Some companies located in that area include The Walt Disney, Warner Bros, Nickelodeon, NBC, Cartoon Network Studios and Insomniac Games.

The new hotel is one of several Cambria properties scheduled to open in California as part of the company's plan to expand in the Los Angeles area.

To be built by S3D Partner, the hotel will include a fitness centre, pool, rooftop lounge, bar, meeting spaces and onsite dining.

Choice Hotels development, upscale brands vice-president Mark Shalala said: "The Cambria Hotel Burbank property is another important component of our rapid growth on the West Coast, and, in particular, LA With lodging demand so high in the area, this property will exceed the expectations of today's modern traveller.

"S3D Partner has worked with us on other Choice brand hotels and has extensive knowledge of the L.A. market. We're thrilled to team up with S3D Partner to build their first Cambria property."

S3D Partner is focused on managing, investing in, or owning and operating more than 20 hotels in the Pacific Rim.

S3D Partner's Jayesh Kumar said: "We're excited to build our first upscale property with Choice Hotels after having worked many years with Choice brands on the West Coast. I cannot speak highly enough of what it means to work hand-in-hand with Choice given all of the resources and tremendous value proposition that it provides.

"The Burbank property is an ideal option for guests traveling on business and in close proximity to all L.A. has to offer."
