ROCKVILLE, Md.,– Choice Hotels International, Inc. (NYSE: CHH), one of the world’s largest hotel companies, has signed an agreement with Sound West Group to develop a Cambria hotel in Bremerton, Wash. Located at 232 Washington Ave., the five-story, 121-room Cambria Hotel Bremerton will be part of a mixed-use waterfront development on Marina Square.
Slated to open in 2019, the Cambria Hotel Bremerton will feature a rooftop deck with 180-degree views of the Puget Sound, multi-function meeting space, a state-of-the-art fitness center, a pool and spa, and underground parking. The hotel will also include 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.
The new upscale property is adjacent to the Bremerton Marina and the Kitsap Conference Center, making it a convenient location for guests attending nearby conferences and events. Bremerton is home to the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard, and is within driving distance of three championship golf courses, including Gold Mountain, Trophy Lake and McCormick Woods. The property is also a short ferry ride to downtown Seattle.
“The Cambria brand is on the move, and the Cambria Hotel Bremerton represents our continued expansion throughout the country and our growing presence on the west coast,” said Mark Shalala, vice president, development, upscale brands at Choice Hotels. “This Cambria hotel, with its prime waterfront location, picturesque views and upscale amenities, is a truly unique option for guests visiting the area. With their expert knowledge of the Puget Sound region, Sound West Group is the ideal collaborator on this project.”
Sound West Group is a leading real estate development and management company with a portfolio of over 600 apartments and more than 500,000 square feet of commercial property under management.
“Sound West Group is proud to be working with the Cambria brand,” said Wesley Larson, CEO of Sound West Group. “This project will serve as a focal point for Bremerton given its waterfront location, and direct 28-minute fast ferry connection to downtown Seattle.”
