LOS ANGELES—Choice Hotels International Inc. joined Fillmore Capital Partners and Fillmore Hospitality to celebrate the grand opening of the Cambria Hotel Los Angeles – LAX.
The property, which opened on May 2, leads the Cambria brand's expansion in California, and is the first of several projects in the area. The upscale hotel brand has plans to open five additional hotels, including L.A. Live in the downtown area, L.A. Spring Street, Anaheim, Glendale and Calabasas. Further, the brand has agreements to develop future hotel properties in Napa and Sonoma, CA.
To commemorate the opening, brand representatives and guests held a ribbon cutting, sampled local craft wine, and a taste of California cuisine. Featured speakers and dignitaries included officials from the Mayor's Office of Manhattan Beach and Hawthorne, as well as the El Segundo Police Department; Choice Hotels SVP of Upscale Brands Janis Cannon; and Fillmore Capital Partners President and CEO Ron Silva, who discussed the impact of this new hotel and its appeal to business and leisure travelers.
Choice worked with Fillmore Hospitality on this project, a management company that provides a spectrum of development, investment and property management services to owners of hotels and resorts throughout North America.
