Cambria Suites is the genuine and authentic upscale select-service hotel that offers thoughtful modern design for the way you live.
Designed to fill a competitive opportunity created by changing guest and travel patterns, Cambria Suits is the logical evolution in the marketplace.
Cambria Suites is a new construction brand designed to appeal to both businesses and leisure travelers. Among the most popular target areas identified for the brand are airports, mixed use developments, leisure destination points and aggressively growing commerical corridors. Its signature is a stylish, refreshingly new, contemporary design - both inside and out. Our guests will enjoy a warmer experience in a more intimate environment then competitive hotels offer, with an attention to function and detail that is normally not part of this segment.
We believe that this is a great opportunity whether your looking to enter the upscale segment or to diversify your portfolio. We hope you join us.
For the past few years, we have researched consumer preference, business and leisure travel trends, assessed development issues and reviewed both the competition and our own portfolio of brands. It was clear there was room for a new brand in today's changing marketplace: an upscale, select-service, all-suites brand that is perfect for today's travelers, who are focused on quality and concered with style. The Upscale Segment
With demand for upscale select service lodging choices increasing, the segment continues to deliver on every key metric:
Smith Travel Research. Data through December 31, 2006
- Upscale Select Service hotels reported an occupancy premium to the overall industry, a +5.5 higher difference for the full year in 2006.
- Upscale Select Service rates are at record high and indexed 121% higher than the ADR of the overall Lodging industry in 2006.
- Lodging industry pricing outpaced the rate of inflation by 4.4 percentage points in 2006, and Upscale Select Service grew by +2.3 percentage points more than the overall Lodging industry.
- PricewaterhouseCoopers projects 3.5% or higher demand gains in the upscale segment in each of the next three years.
Cambria Suites is designed to compete with Courtyard by Mariott, a loft, Indigo, Hyatt Place, Spring Hill Suilts, and Hilton Garden Inn. What distinguishes our new brand from these are its distinctive style, all-suite configuration and lower development and ongoing costs.
