News story from Channel 4:
Cambria Suites, the stylish all-suite, all new construction hotel brand which is franchised by Choice Hotels International, Inc., one of the world's largest lodging companies, announces two hotel franchise agreements, on of which will be in McAllen, Texas. Cambria Suites offers contemporary, upscale accommodations at affordable prices. The hotel's suites are larger than standard hotel rooms and include a separate living, working and sleeping space, providing business and leisure travelers a haven to relax, socialize and network. As of March 31, 2013, there were 19 properties open across the country, representing nearly 2200 guest suites, and 26 properties in various stages of development, representing an additional 3700 guest suites.
Cambria Suites is working with the McAllen Strategic Group LLC and affiliates Hankin Enterprises and Fulcrum Management Corp as the official hotel of the McAllen Convention Center and promises an upscale lodging option. The Cambria Suites hotel will be a 121 suite, 4-story property which will also offer two banquet rooms and an executive conference room and will feature a resort style pool, alfresco living room inspired decor, cabana lounge pods and a fire pit.
"Cambria Suites is the perfect brand for these expanding markets," said Michael Murphy, senior vice president of upscale brands for Choice Hotels International. "We are seeing incredible growth in the Fargo, North Dakota and South Texas regions. Multi-national companies are expanding very fast in these cities, attracting business travelers and driving demand for a spacious, upscale lodging option where they can relax and remain productive on the road. We are working with developers who understand these markets as well as we do and Cambria Suites hits a sweet spot with these guests."
In 2012, U.S. Census Bureau rated McAllen one of the ten fastest growing cities in the United States, largely due to the McAllen-Foreign Trade Zone. The McAllen FTZ is one of the country's most active due to provisions under the North American Free Trade Agreement which offer tariff and tax relief and other cost-savings to businesses. This has attracted major global companies in recent years, transforming the McAllen metropolitan area into an international hub where multi-national companies have dedicated significant investment and resources. These organizations include: LG, Panasonic, Corning, Motorola and Black & Decker, to name a few. U.S. Customs and Border Patrol McAllen Station also has a major presence attracting government employees and civilian contractors to support its mission overseeing operation of the FTZ and for patrolling 53 miles of the Rio Grande.
Conveniently located near McAllen International Airport, Cambria Suites McAllen Convention Center is situated in close proximity to major interstate highways and numerous international cross border bridges. The city leads the state of Texas in retail sales making it a major shopping and restaurant destination. Right next door, guests of Cambria Suites can enjoy the Simon Property Group's popular 350,000 square foot lifestyle retail center, Palms Crossing.
All Cambria Suites hotels are new-construction and the brand leads the rest of the upscale lodging segment in guest satisfaction scores as measured by guests' likelihood to recommend (LTR). As of today, many Cambria Suites hotels are ranked #1 and #2 in their respective markets on TripAdvisor.
All Cambria Suites hotels feature Reflect, a casual dining and gathering area serving a dinner menu, liquor, wine, beer, freshly prepared grab-and-go gourmet salads and sandwiches, a barista bar featuring Wolfgang Puck® coffee and a hot breakfast buffet; Refresh, a state-of-the-art fitness center with an elegant pool and hot tub/spa area; and Refill, a 24-7 convenience store that offers energy drinks, snacks and sundries.
In addition, each suite offers the latest technology, including two flat-screen LCD televisions and MediaHub™ plug-and-play technology, allowing guests to connect their laptop, MP3 player, game console, digital camera or CD/DVD player hassle-free. Free high-speed wired and wireless Internet access is available throughout the hotel so that guests can stay connected.
"Our team couldn't be more enthusiastic about our affiliation with the remarkable Cambria Suites brand," said Christopher Haridopolos, principal of McAllen Strategic Group LLC. "We look forward to growing within the ever expanding Cambria Suites family."
Cambria Suites McAllen Convention Center is expected to break ground in the third quarter of 2013.
