Cambria Hotel Planned for Burbank
Choice brand’s pipeline includes five other LA-area sites
Choice Hotels Intl. Inc. is teaming with S3D Partner to develop a Cambria hotel in Burbank, Calif. The six-story, 90-room newbuild hotel is slated to open in 2019 at a locale near a variety of high-profile film and television studios.
"The Cambria Hotel Burbank property is another important component of our rapid growth on the West Coast, and, in particular, LA,” says Mark Shalala, vice president, development, upscale brands at Landover, Maryland- based Choice Hotels. “With lodging demand so high in the area, this property will exceed the expectations of today's modern traveler. S3D Partner has worked with us on other Choice brand hotels and has extensive knowledge of the LA market. We're thrilled to team up with S3D Partner to build their first Cambria property."
In addition to the recently opened Los Angeles – LAX Cambria Hotel, the brand plans to open five more properties in the market over the next several years, including LA Live in the downtown area, LA Spring Street, Anaheim, Glendale and Calabasas. In addition, the brand has agreements to develop future properties in Napa and Sonoma.
The identities of the architect and interior designer for The Cambria Hotel Burbank were not immediately available. In addition to its accommodations, the property will feature on-site dining, flexible meeting spaces, a fitness center, pool, and a rooftop lounge and bar.
"We're excited to build our first upscale property with Choice Hotels after having worked many years with Choice brands on the West Coast,” says S3D Partner’s Jayesh Kumar. “I can’t speak highly enough of what it means to work hand-in-hand with Choice given all of the resources and tremendous value proposition that it provides. The Burbank property is an ideal option for guests traveling on business and in close proximity to all L.A. has to offer."
