ROCKVILLE, MD—Cambria Hotels 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, MN; Greenville, SC; Madeira Beach, FL; Summerville, SC; and now in Ocean City, MD, and Rohnert Park, CA. The Cambria Hotel Ocean City—Bayfront and Cambria Hotel Sonoma Wine Country, both close to major metropolitan areas, offer escapes for travelers ready to explore again and further exemplify the brand’s growth.
“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, SVP, 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.”
The eight-story, 137-room Cambria Hotel Ocean City—Bayfront is Cambria’s fourth property in Maryland and further bolsters its presence throughout the mid-Atlantic region. Located in Ocean City, the hotel is close to the Boardwalk and the Inlet, home to summer concerts and special events. Guests also have access to two beachside amusement parks, shopping options along the shore, the Outlets Ocean City shopping center, Splash Mountain Water Park and Northside Park. The Cambria Hotel Ocean City—Bayfront also has a rooftop bar, indoor and outdoor pools, on-site dining, a fitness center and more than 2,400 sq. ft. of meeting and event space.
The four-story, 135-room Cambria Hotel Sonoma Wine Country, which is the brand’s third property in California, is in the heart of California’s wine country in Rohnert Park. Guests planning a wine-tasting getaway can explore Sonoma County’s almost 60,000 acres of vineyards and more than 400 wineries. The property is also near Crane Creek Regional Park and Graton Casino. Business travelers can take advantage of the hotel’s proximity to San Francisco and many of the region’s top employers, such as Keysight Technologies, Kaiser Permanente, Sutter Santa Rosa Regional Hospital, St. Joseph Health and Sonoma State University. The Cambria Hotel Sonoma Wine Country has an on-site restaurant and bar, meeting and event space, indoor and outdoor pools and a fitness center.
The Cambria Hotel Ocean City—Bayfront was developed by Tauhid Islam of Pinnacle Hospitality Group and Mihir Wankawala of The Wankawala Organization, while the Cambria Hotel Sonoma Wine Country was developed by Stratus Development Partners LLC and is managed by Azul Hospitality Group.
All Choice-branded hotels are participating in Commitment to Clean, an initiative that builds upon the foundation of franchisees’ dedication to cleanliness with enhanced training and best practices for deep cleaning, disinfecting and social distancing. Additionally, Cambria guests can limit their interactions with hotel staff by using the Cambria Contactless Concierge Service, a text messaging service for housekeeping requests, to-go food orders, meeting room requests and more.
