Choice Hotels Signs Agreement with Former Football Pro Christopher Harrison to Develop a New Cambria hotel & suites in Petersburg, VA
ROCKVILLE, Md. -- Choice Hotels International, Inc. (NYSE: CHH), one of the world's largest hotel companies, announced it has signed an agreement with C. A. Harrison Companies, LLC, to develop a Cambria hotel & suites in Petersburg, VA. The 140-room Cambria property will be located at 380 East Washington Street.
"We're committed to working with a diverse group of owner and operators, and we are proud to work with Chris Harrison, an emerging leader in the African American business community, who continuously sets the standard of excellence with his projects," said Steve Joyce, president and CEO, Choice Hotels International. "Choice has a long-standing commitment to diversity across our business; in fact, we were one of the first lodging companies to begin focusing on minority developers in 2004 when we created a dedicated emerging markets team focused on minority franchise development, said Joyce."
Designed as a business travel and leisure brand, all Cambria hotels & suites properties feature a larger lobby to give guests a more social atmosphere; oversized rooms with flexible spaces; and the latest technology that allows guests to stay connected while they travel.
"Over the course of my career I've been fortunate enough to travel all over the world, so I know what makes for a great hotel experience," said Harrison. "The Cambria brand is known for its exceptional guest experience, making Choice Hotels the obvious partner for developing an upscale and affordable lodging destination in Petersburg."
As with all Cambria hotels & suites, the Petersburg property will feature other fine amenities such as a contemporary bistro, Social Circle™, serving a menu comprised of local specialties created by Chef Michael DeMaria; liquor, wine, beer and freshly prepared grab-and-go gourmet salads and sandwiches; and a barista bar. This property will also boast meeting space, an indoor pool and an outdoor courtyard. Additionally, the complex will include 26,700 square feet of retail and office spaces and up to 100 residential apartment units.
