Choice to Develop First Cambria Hotel in Burbank, CA

ROCKVILLE, MD—Choice Hotels International has signed an agreement with S3D Partner to develop its first Cambria hotel in Burbank, CA. The six-story, 90-room property will be located at 201 South Glenoaks Blvd. in downtown Burbank, CA, near notable film and television studios.

The Cambria Hotel Burbank is one of several Cambria properties set to open in California as the brand continues to expand in the Los Angeles area. Following the opening of the Los Angeles – LAX property in May, the brand has plans to open five additional hotels, including LA Live in the downtown area, LA Spring St., Anaheim, Glendale and Calabasas. Further, the brand has agreements to develop future properties in Napa and Sonoma, CA.

Expected to open in 2019, the Cambria Hotel Burbank is located in an area with numerous entertainment companies headquartered or having production facilities nearby. The companies include The Walt Disney Co., Warner Bros., Nickelodeon, NBC, Cartoon Network Studios and Insomniac Games.

“The Cambria Hotel Burbank property is another important component of our rapid growth on the West Coast, and, in particular, L.A. With lodging demand so high in the area, this property will exceed the expectations of today’s modern traveler,” said Mark Shalala, VP, development, upscale brands at Choice Hotels. “S3D Partner has worked with us on other Choice brand hotels and has extensive knowledge of the L.A. market.”

The new hotel will have flexible meeting spaces, a fitness center, pool, and a rooftop lounge and bar. The property will also feature contemporary on-site dining, serving a menu comprising local specialties, liquor, wine, and local craft beers, as well as prepared grab-and-go gourmet salads and sandwiches, and a barista bar.

S3D Partner has many years of experience in the hotel industry, including managing, investing in, or owning and operating more than 20 hotels in the Pacific Rim.
