ROCKVILLE, Md., Aug. 5, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Cambria Hotels, an upscale brand franchised by Choice Hotels International, Inc.

Cambria Hotels' more than 50 open locations across the U.S. are designed with thoughtful touches to help guests refresh, relax and recharge, and we're excited to offer this limited-series podcast to inspire future travel for a variety of guests wherever their next destination is."

Cannon and Hertan provide a look into how Cambria hotels are designed to reflect local destinations and immerse guests in the essence of the city. Topics include:

  • Maximizing time and relaxation with purposeful design
  • The importance of creating a sense of space and place
  • Unwinding with spa-like comforts
  • Hosting successful business meetings at Cambria Hotels in compliance with guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and local regulations
  • Experiencing local culture without leaving the hotel
  • Tasting the city through locally inspired cuisine

"As a brand, we pride ourselves on providing guests with locally inspired touches, from fresh, locally sourced food and craft beer options, to design that immerses them in the surrounding city," said Hertan. "The unique characteristics of the city they are visiting come alive from the comfort of their hotel, even if they are unable to get out and explore. We hope this podcast will provide a taste of the Cambria Hotels stay experience and help listeners make their next getaway as seamless and enjoyable as possible."

Cannon and Hertan also discuss how Cambria's unique design elements elevate modern travelers' stays and how Cambria Hotels has implemented changes to the layouts of communal spaces, as part of Choice Hotels' Commitment to Clean, an initiative that builds upon the strong foundation of franchisees' long-standing dedication to cleanliness with enhanced training and best practices for deep cleaning, disinfecting and social distancing.
