ROCKVILLE, Md. -- Choice Hotels International, Inc. (NYSE: CHH), one of the world's largest hotel companies, Fillmore Capital Partners, and developer Fillmore Hospitality hosted the official groundbreaking of the new Cambria hotel & suites New Orleans yesterday. The new hotel will represent the brand's first location in Louisiana.


To commemorate the brand's entrance into the Louisiana market, brand representatives, key local dignitaries and guests celebrated the groundbreaking during a ceremony at the property, featuring live entertainment by local jazz phenomenon Tim Laughlin.

"New Orleans is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the South, and one of the most unique cities in the entire country, making it the ideal location for a Cambria hotel & suites," said Michael Murphy, senior vice president, Upscale Brands, Choice Hotels International. "This is a tremendous step forward for the brand, and we're thrilled to once again partner with a world-class organization like Fillmore to bring Cambria to New Orleans."

Conveniently located at 632 Tchoupitoulas Street in the Warehouse District, also known as the Arts District, the New Orleans Cambria hotel & suites is scheduled to open in spring 2017. The new hotel is perfectly positioned within walking distance from many iconic New Orleans attractions, including some of the city's most prominent museums and over twenty-five art galleries.

Additional attractions surrounding the hotel include many well-known live music venues and a number of restaurants and cafes serving everything from stylish gourmet dishes, to traditional Cajun favorites.

The new 162-room hotel will feature sleek, modern rooms that are larger than standard hotel rooms, offering functional, chic decor. Guests will be able to dine at the hotel's contemporary bistro, Social Circle™, open morning and night, serving a locally inspired menu and local craft beer. For business travelers on the go, the new Cambria hotel & suites will also feature a modern business center and meeting rooms.
