Cambria Hotels Continues Coast-To-Coast Expansion In Top Leisure Destinations
Upscale Brand Opens Waterfront Hotel in Ocean City, Maryland, and Wine Country Retreat in Sonoma, California

ROCKVILLE, Md., Aug. 18, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Cambria Hotels, an upscale brand franchised by Choice Hotels International, Inc. (NYSE: CHH), continues its expansion across popular United States destinations with openings on both the east and west coasts this month. Since January, Cambria Hotels has opened six new hotels in major markets across the country, including Bloomington, Minnesota; Greenville, South Carolina; Madeira Beach, Florida; Summerville, South Carolina; and now in Ocean City, Maryland, and Rohnert Park, California. The Cambria Hotel Ocean City - Bayfront and Cambria Hotel Sonoma Wine Country, both short drives from major metropolitan areas, offer ideal escapes for travelers ready to explore again and further exemplify the brand's growth. Both hotels feature upscale amenities and approachable indulgences that appeal to modern travelers.

"With leisure travel returning faster than business travel right now, we're thrilled to offer these getaways so guests can have the chance to relax, rejuvenate and disconnect," said Janis Cannon, senior vice president, upscale brands, Choice Hotels. "Ocean City is a vibrant seaside town and one of the most popular beach destinations on the east coast, while the Cambria Hotel Sonoma Wine Country connects guests to some of Northern California's most well-known and picturesque vineyards. Both hotels, which represent the brand's substantial growth across the country, are in easily accessible drive-to locations as today's travelers pursue road trips more often than air travel."
