Cambria Suites – Times SquareThe 81,000 square-foot, 196-suite Cambria Suites Times Square is a venture between Choice Hotels and Concord Hospitality of Raleigh, NC. A bar positioned in the lobby space fronting 46th street connects hotel guests with the city, and there is outdoor seating at the front and rear of the hotel. The property is scheduled to open in winter 2014 and will be located at 30 W. 46th Street, in the heart of Manhattan's central business district. "This is our first of three Cambria Suites developments in major urban markets," says Mark Laport, President and CEO of Concord Hospitality. "The Cambria Suites design meets the needs of today's business traveler and we are excited by the commitment that Choice Hotels has made to the development of this new upscale brand." Cambria Suites – Chelsea Cambria Suites Chelsea is being developed by Robert Chun, of We Care Trading Co., Ltd. and will be managed by Concord Hospitality. "As successful entrepreneurs entering the hospitality industry, we have surrounded ourselves with the best possible organizations: Cambria Suites, Choice Hotels and Concord Hospitality," says Robert Chun, Director of Development of We Care Trading Co., Ltd. "We considered many brands, but introducing a fresh, new all-suite hotel in Manhattan in the fast-growing upscale segment was clearly the best choice." Plaza seating at the street scape allows guests to soak up the scent and beauty of the Flower District while a rear outdoor patio seating offers an intimate gathering place for drinks, food and fun. Situated in one of Manhattan's hippest neighborhoods, the property will be located at 123-125 W. 28th Street, and will feature 135 suites in 56,500 square feet. Cambria Suites Chelsea will open in the second quarter of 2014. Cambria Suites – White Plains Cambria Suites White Plains will be one of the first hotels of this brand to be part of a mixed-use, urban design development. It will sit atop two stories of retail space in the heart of downtown White Plains at 250 Main Street. Cambria Suites White Plains will also feature the brand's first pods in the common spaces where guests will be able to sit and relax in front of the TV or work quietly on the computer. This project is expected to open in summer 2013 with 130 suites that are larger than standard hotel rooms, an indoor pool and valet parking. " White Plains is the commercial hub for Westchester County. Home to more than a dozen Fortune 500 companies and many more corporations, White Plains and the surrounding region attract business travelers from all over the world," says Bill Meyer, Chairman of Meyer Jabara Hotels. "Cambria Suites is the perfect upscale hotel for those travelers who seek a productive and stylish experience."
