“We’re elated to bring the fast-growing Cambria Hotels brand to more top destinations, including new markets, like Calabasas and Napa Valley, California, and Fort Lauderdale, while also continuing to grow in top urban markets, like Nashville, TennesseeWashington, D.C. and Louisville, Kentucky,” said Janis Cannon, senior vice president, upscale brands, Choice Hotels. “With travelers craving an escape, and a bit of fun, whether close to home or miles away on the opposite coast, we’re delighted to offer hotels in the prime locations they desire, along with upscale amenities and little luxuries that make for an unforgettable experience.
